The 6 classic LTE looks sharp but I did return if tor the battery life and kept my pro. Classic with data and wifi (auto) was getting 30 hours, the pro sees nearly double that. My next biggest reason for returning was the fact the activity still cannot accurately track my laps in the pool. I was really hoping Samsung would fix this, but they haven't so I am off to better, more epic things.

For what it's worth. I've had some websites refuse to accept parenthesis and or apostrophes. You may remove those and see if it works.

I'm going to agree with everything everyone has written about not being able to leave ANY reviews. No matter how much I edit the review I get a "fail" response.

If you guys want to play the dance of "we want your honest feedback" while purposely putting up a site that doesn't allow any reviews so you can load it up with shills (or AIs) who are writing sham reviews, that's up to you, maybe it makes you feel better, but honestly, what's the point?

We all know what's going on.

I see a lot of complaints here and I am sure they are justified. But readers may get the impression that the Galaxy 6 watch is no good. 

I pre-ordered my watch from Samsung and it arrived two days early. Never having a Galaxy watch before, I went on YouTube to help me with initial settings and tweeks. That saved a lot of time and heartache.

Within a week the watch settled in. Now, a month later after 24 hours of wear I still have 30% battery. We all would love longer battery life but I can live with this. The overall accuracy of health and activity monitors is pretty impressive. Sure there are a few hiccups but I think we all need to understand that this is not a true professional medical device. It is a help but not a substitute for professional medical monitoring.

So Samsung, kudos to you and thank you.

I'm glad for you that you have 30% left. My watch last about 18 hrs with no exercise or activities and I have had my watch for a month now. I like to watch just not a fan of the batter. The GW4 I traded in had a better battery life.

The sleep tracking on many W6C's is way off. We get single-digit deep sleep numbers and bizarre chunks of awake time that never happened, not to mention a lot of Sleep Mode weirdness. It's great that yours seems to be functioning somewhat normally, but that doesn't seem to be particularly common.

Interesting take on others complaints. Perhaps never having a watch before puts you a bit on the outside of what ppl are experiencing. Devices arriving early is hardly unheard of during samsung pre-order sales. Also seems unlikely ppl are experiencing medical misunderstandings. For example doubt ppl are getting readings suggesting they have a condition only to visit a medical professional and find out otherwise then complain to Samsung for misleading them with their device inaccuracies. The overall tone of many complaints is that Samsung advertised improvements on a new device that aren't matching previous generations. They can't tell us the sensors, battery and tracking are improved from our older devices and think customers won't notice when their are bugs or downgrades in performance.

I would like to see Samsung add GMT itself as an available time zone in the World Clock.

Also, I upgraded from the Galaxy Watch to the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic. This has been a nice jump/upgrade for me. It's a very nice Watch with a wonderful bunch of features.

Just a quick reivew on the 6 47mm Classic.  Traded in the 5 Pro for the much missed rotating bezel.  First thing I noticed was the increase and size and the screen was much better on the 6. AOD is turned off everything else I left alone for now.   I just received it Wednesday and used it for two days.  Had a couple of problems but similar problems also occurred on the Watch 4 and 5.  First problem was downloading music to the watch from both YouTube and Amazon.  WiFi was turned on and bluetooth was running.  About 2 hours later no music was downloaded.  What I had to do was turn off Bluetooth so the watch consistently used Wifi.  I found that with Bluetooth on WiFi would just stop and both services download over WiFi only apparently (the 5 Pro was like this also).  Second problem I had was I started an exercise just shut down after starting.  I started the app to record a general weight lifting exercise and remember hearing the beeps on startup.  20 minutes later I check the watch and the app was not running so the time was not recorded.  This also happened a few times on the 5 Pro, very infrequent.  I did one 90 minute exercise yesterday using GPS and music, no phone with me.  The battery was at 93% when I started and finished at 68%.  25% used for GPS and music.  Most likely will be a daily charger for me, not a big deal.  The size for me at 47mm is probably the biggest I would go for my wrist.  The 6 Classic is not as thick as the 5 Pro so it is more comfortable to wear.  Other than the smaller battery I really like the changes Samsung did this year.
