Got mine with my phone. Love it.

Battery is shocking though

Oh, heat added btw

I chose the Gear S3 over this but still a good price.

Lower than the Black Friday deals

i am thinking of doing the same...is the battery life better on the gear s3? this is lasting a day.
can you respond to whatsapp, texts etc via the gear watch?

Great watch, battery lasts a couple of days with normal use and once you have one you will wonder how you lived without it

Mine easy lasts 2 days until needs a charge. I'm only a light user though. Chose this over the S3 as it is better integrated with Google apps and eco system. S3 uses Tizen, which while is a good OS it doesn't work as well with Android as Wear does. If you use it, S3 doesn't use Android pay. It uses Samsung pay which isn't accepted in most places.

My battery just lasts 2 days. You can reply to texts, but not whatsapp. This is smaller and lighter (though not as pretty imo) than the s3.

Surely Samsung pay is accepted where ever contactless pay is?!!
Maybe you mean not many banks support samsung pay??

Mine last about 3 to 4 days, I can reply to everything including emails on my watch. In a limited form anyway.

Also has the option to turn to "just watch mode" IIRC, which makes it last for many more days. i.e. if you know battery is running low, you can switch to just watch so that you don't have a dead brick on your arm for the rest of the day. A lot of other watches don't have this feature which is a big plus IMO.

Battery life has been massively improved after recent android wear updates.
It was shocking back in July when I purchased mine.

Great watch as a fitness companion.
Shame you cannot wear it when swimming.

Samsung Pay is accepted in the same places as Android Pay. S3 integrates perfectly with Android and Apple phones. Battery on my S3 lasts well over three days easily

Not sure as Ive never tried it.

I have the watch 2 classic version on the way.... just looks a bit classier for wearing in the office but still has all the fitness things included

So much for Black Friday deals when they reduce the price further a few days later!

Android Pay and Samsung pay have the same functionality... Where it suggests Android Pay, Samsung Pay is useable

Great watch and now worth it at this price.Original rrp was a bit silly.
Battery can drain fast with everything switched on...you get around a day at best.
Switch off wi-fi and stick to bluetooth connection with phone and you can see two days with notifications,voice replies to texts etc.
S3 is a great watch but this feels better on the wrist and is lighter...screen is slightly smaller but not a big deal really.
Reviews mention cheap strap...nonsense..strap is fine and the ceramic bezel is nice!!
Stock watch faces are dull but but buy watchmaker premium in play store and you can get 1000s of em!!
I hummed and hooed about buying this watch but I am very happy with it.

In fact both are acceptable wherever they accept contactless cards as it's the same NFC system, not some proprietary rubbish like Apple Pay. You'll regularly find places that have contactless but say they don't take Android or Samsung but just look them square in the eye and say "Really?" as you swipe it and the payment goes through.

Can anyone recommend the best settings on this please? Love the watch and think it is great (although I am expecting a little more to be able to view whatsapp photos etc).

My battery lasts no more than a day with moderate use - its only whatsapp and texts I use it for.

Get 2 days from mine, but that's from reading messages/emails etc, don't tend to use it to reply. I also use it as a watch

Used to have the original Huawei watch and really liked it. Would anyone that owns this kindly let me know how big the watch is. I have watched loads of YouTube videos but am struggling to make a decision as I don't want a massive watch but really like the new features.
Cheers in advance for any help.
Neil.

Hi Neil
It looks relatively big in YouTube videos and also in some online reviews.
I can assure you it is not too big.
If anything...I worried it was a bit small when I unboxed it...I had expected it to be a monster.
It would sit well on most wrist sizes.

Thanks for that glam1.
It is nice to hear from someone who actually has one rather than potentially paid reviews.
After hearing that I think I will go for it.
Thanks again.

No probs...enjoy the watch!!
I meant to mention in my earlier post...for a few days after I bought mine I experienced a bit of lagginess and poor battery life but a couple of re-starts seemed to sort it.
Huawei customer service were useful to talk to and happy to aid in a replacement if needed.

Thanks very much for the assistance. I won't be too concerned now if there is a bedding in period.
It's been a big help

Showing as £299 now.

Current watchface.
Also for the chap that asked about power saving settings...best to google it..lot's of tips on the watch itself plus power saving in AW2 in general.
Prices seem to have gone back up in most places:-((
Very are still doing it for £175 though:-))

How bizarre, Amazon has stopped selling it themselves - hence to going up in price back to £299.

My mate has this proper size on wrist not crazy huge and not puny.

missed the deal by the time I got home yesterday, however by chance I tried at 06:00 this morning and managed to get one. Checked a few minutes later and it was not sold by Amazon again, so a little hit and miss.
