I personally love the upgrade from my old galaxy watch. Apple watches are like like an new gadget loaded vehicle but thery are everywhere and don't stand out like Samsung did with the galaxy 3. I ve had Apple watch owners say they were jealous home crisp and smooth the watch was and can be worn to a nice event by throwing the leather band on or the silicone band for casual wear. My only complaint is I hope they give us an update to help with battery life and fine tune a potential perfect watch.

Love this watch. Picking up calls is so clear and I am not tied to my phone. Had an older one and just got it replaced. Love the silver tone and big face. Added new watch band and sparkley dial protector and looks more feminine.
Very reliable, durable & satisfactory. The galaxy watch is designed with old style which is strong to work while wearing it at job as well as in a event. I look at all other fancy watches which is falling off after a short period of time.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 review: One of the best Apple Watch alternativesThe main aesthetic criticism of Samsung's original Galaxy Watch is its chunky design.

A:AnswerAbsolutely! I purchased my Galaxy Watch3 from Best Buy then drove down the block to the Verizon store for them to pair the watch to my LG phone. Note that if your watch has the cellular feature as mine does, Verizon will connect the watch to the network ($40 one-time activation fee, $10 per month for watch line). Pairing and connecting to the network all done under 10 minutes.
