Brought it back, last week! Sleeptracker is lousy. Not accurate and keeps telling me my deep sleep is lacking. I bought it mainly because of track my sleep. My husband has bought the Huawei GT2 and his sleeptracker is the bomb. No Samsung for me anymore!👎

Unable to scan my creative outlier air earbuds and jabra elite 65t earbuds using the Bluetooth audio. Both are Bluetooth 5.0 but it seems like only Samsung earbuds work on this watch🤯😖

Why not explain the difference between the Bluetooth & the LTE versions?

Most people don't realize that if you choose the LTE, you will have to pay a monthly carrier fee of $10-$20 per month.

@The Verge Is installing the Endomondo/MapMyRun app and paying for subscription on the Standard verson better than buying the Under Armor Edition? Any difference apart from the strap and 6mo subscription? Is the HR measurement a real deal-breaker? Can it get better with SW updates?

You didn't comment on REAL battery life – I get 4 days out of my active 2. BTW Samsung finally released the Starbucks app for the Active 2!! (It's called SB Coffee Card). Now the Samsung Active 2 can finally replace the apple watch.

It's a pity this does not go out in 42mm. 40mm seems too small on my wrist, whereas 44mm is on the large side.

Wow…it's a touch rotating bezel. I didn't know that… Yes I have the Wear OS and it's extremely slow and laggy. Not ok to use at all. Regret trying one.

Honestly, the bezel control could have easily been something that was released as an update on the first active.
