My watch is only a few months old and has become virtually worthless with this awful app. It insists I must update to use it, but when I try it only gives the "uninstall" option. I've tried reinstalling several times and it does nothing. It is not communicating with my phone at all, not showing calls or texts. So now I just have a digital watch that needs to be charged every 36 hours. My kids' cheap knock-off watches from Amazon work far better.

I love the watch, very well made. However, I have a MAJOR quarrel with Samsung. When the watch is connected to my phone, my Google Assistant doesn't listen. The Assistant screen pops up, but doesn't hear my voice at all, even through the watch mic. Furthermore, the watch doesn't work with Wear OS from Google. More still, you have to download at least three Samsung apps for the watch to work properly, four if you want the fitness portion to work.

No issues on my OnePlus 7 Pro. I did see a few reviews complaining about battery drain, but I haven't experienced that. Shortly after installing this app and setting up my watch, there was a prompt to turn on some sort of "increased data sharing" between the watch and phone. I declined because it did warn of excessive phone battery drain. I'm guessing some people turned it on and that's why they're having issues.
