      When it will be fully compatible in terms of features and functionality I will go for this watch. Eg: Control DND from my watch in the same time on my watch and phone as well ( here I am speaking about this watch and Samsung Note 10 plus). Next down from me : Music playlist sync from my samsung note 10 plus to my watch.

      Does S-Pay only use NFC or does it also have MST like the Galaxy phones do?

        Last I checked, on all of Samsung's watches that support Samsung Pay it only works with NFC. I remember hearing that the MST chip was too bulky for the watches or something like that.

            I'm wearing the Apple watch 4, but since I just got the Note 10 plus and Cupertino is full of D***S, I can't pair the Apple Watch with my Note. I knew this before buying the Note though. The Active 2 is in my sights, because I miss the notifications, but I will still wear the Apple Watch occasionally because it is beautiful and it has MICKEY MOUSE! LOL!

                Is there a speaker..? Why do you guys always forget to let us know... Nice to take the Galaxy Watch for a run with Spotify playing straight from the watch...

                            Previous Galaxy watches recorded steps while I was driving in my truck, riding on my motorcycle, and even driving my riding lawnmower mowing the grass. I got rid of it because of that. I'm curious if Samsung has been able to cancel those types of events out so I can rely on it to track steps instead of car rides, etc.

                                          Does it come with a speaker or do we have to use bluetooth earphones to watch the videos and listen to messages?

                                          I'm not too familiar with the features, but I just want a smart watch where I can use without my phone. Not watch vids on it....

                                            It looks nice, but bruh, that heart rate sensor is damn near identical to the apple watch 4, come on samsung, at least try to make it look different.

                                              If the back of the Apple Watch looks awesome already, why not copy it.

                                              I have the galaxy s2 classic with the rotating bezel. My watch is almost 4 years old and I still love! Still looks new! I'd love to get one of the newer ones but what would I do with my old one. It's still in perfect condition. Can't justify tossing it aside just for a newer model.

                                                They'll stay behind apple for the next decade unless they integrate Google's services into the watch, more apps better assistant better overall performance/expirience

                                                  They will stay behind Apple. But they will stay right behind Apple and behind them is no one. And that's fine. Apple is definitely leading the smartwatch market but Samsung is doing a great job as well. And they can't integrate Google services.

                                                I just got the active in June... lol why would they release a new generation 6 months after? I guess the 1 kinda counts as the affordable smart watch of all still. Happy but not happy wish mine had some of those new features but for $100 less I think it makes sense.
