Since updating my watch, this app opens up whenever any other app is open. I know it's open because a white screen flashes across the screen. In some instances, when watching videos, the main screen shrinks thinking that the other app is more important. Very dissatisfied. Unfortunately I have to use it to have a Samsung watch. Probably switching to apple all around at the end of the year.

It's good. I love most of the watch features but I can't stand how much the user interface & experience changes with updates. E.g., to switch to/from sleep mode (which I do at least 2x daily)- the access icon changed and now a swipe and 2 taps plus some wait time is needed for something that used to take a swipe & a tap. A lot of features work great, but not if they change drastically all the time.

It's missing one extremely important and very basic feature. I NEED to be able to remap the touch controls. Samsung, sometimes when I'm in the gym I need a adjust my earbuds. With the galaxy buds pro 2 there's touch controls and one tap pauses your music. When I adjust my earbuds, it pauses the music every time. It's very irritating. PLEASE let me remap the single tap pause function to the double tap function so I can adjust my earbuds without pausing my music.
