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.

The most unstable app on my phone; it keeps taking over the entire Bluetooth connection so that my other Bluetooth device can't connect and when phone calls come in they will only go to the watch, where I can hardly hear them and callers can't hear me. When i try to change the output to the phone in my phone app, the watch won't release them. I love my watch hardware, but this app is a constant aggravation.
