[Poll] Have you ordered the Samsung Galaxy Watch?

The Galaxy Watch has been available on retail shelves for a week or so in the United States at this point, and Samsung will be starting sales of its latest smartwatches in other markets in the coming days. The Galaxy Watch brings a complete rebranding to Samsung’s smartwatch lineup, along with options for consumers with small and big wrists (unlike the Gear S3, which wasn’t a good fit for folks with small wrists). Oh, and it’s also the launch pad for Bixby’s wearable debut.

Our Galaxy Watch review will be here within the next week, but in the meantime, we would like to know if you have ordered the watch or will be ordering it once it goes on sale in your country. You can tell us by voting in the poll below; if you’re already using the watch, do talk about how your experience has been down in the comments section.

Pre-ordered but been told there are supply issues and will have to wait until next week for it to be delivered. This was through Argos in the UK.
Also wish Samsung would get other banks on board in the UK as their current support is abysmal. I want to use Samsung Pay but not got the option.

I didn’t bother. I’m very happy with the S3 Frontier and just got a new battery installed a couple of months ago. My wife has the Gear Sport she got free with her S9 plus. However it’s a great buy for anyone wanting their first smartwatch or upgrading from S2 or older.

Sticking with my Gear S3 Frontier for now. When I upgrade, I may switch to an Android Wear watch instead because lack of apps on the Galaxy Store is annoying. I refer more to lack of apps like Textra (or other good sms apps), Hangouts, Gmail (because Samsung’s email app sucks IMO), Whatsapp, etc…. I could care less for games and stuff on the watch but want some of the basic apps that none of the developers seem to be porting to TIzen yet they all support Android and crApple so I wish they would support Samsung’s smartwatches too.

Anyone who buys the hype of the Galaxy watch has too much money.

i am a smartwatch junkie, i have gotten every new smartwatch when it comes out from samsung, but i skipped this one because it is missing the MST samsung pay feature that the S3 has, so i am sticking with my S3 and considering putting in a new battery myself in a few months to get more life out of it.

you change the battery yourself, you will almost certainly lose the IP68 rating. MST has been on phones since the S6, so just use that. the Galaxy Watch is fully waterproof has more enhanced sensors and a much longer battery life and longevity. the Gear S3 is a good watch, and I have had it since launch, but the removal of just one feature shouldn’t offset the rest.
((un)fortunately the UK doesn’t get MST support for Samsung Pay so the fact it doesn’t come on the watch has no impact on UK customers lol) so its a definite upgrade for us.)

Agreed. Here in the UK we don’t need MST as our contactless payment system is pretty much mature enough to stand on its own however I do think Samsung really needs to push the banks further to expand with Samsung Pay. It’s hardly on any banks and no updates in almost a year on new additions. We need PayPal like in the US too.

I had my Gear S2 since launch day and it never even got Samsung Pay.

Mine should arrive tomorrow. It was pre-ordered back in late August and had the email and SMS messages saying it was to be delivered on the 4th Sept but they won’t release it until today.

They also said in an email the free wireless charger is delayed until next week!

Between 1:30pm and 2:30pm is the estimated time for its arrival.

I ordered the Tab S4 and Galaxy watch, both with Pre order bonuses and both bonuses coming separately and much later than the actual product themselves?! wth why?!
Charging Duo is supposed to be coming on 28th Sept. and my S4 keyboard cover within the “next 30 days” – seriously?! bit ridiculous.

My charging duo was stated in big letters for the 14th in an email but in the small print under that is the 28th.

I suppose I’ll just have to wait patiently and see when it arrives.

Ordered all 3 variants for 2 friends of mine and myself. Both 42mm variants have been delivered, but my 46mm model is out of stock and will come in 3 weeks 🙁 It is going to replace my S3 Frontier because of swimming capabilities and better heart rate monitoring.
