Samsung's Galaxy Watch is one of the latest smartwatches on the market, and while it's not drastically different compared to the Gear S3 or Gear Sport, it's still one of the best wearables you can buy right now.

One of the Galaxy Watch's biggest claims to fame is its multi-day battery life on a single charge, and now that shipments are starting to go out, early adopters are starting to chime in with how the gadget's been holding up in these regards.

Here's what they have to say.

Had mine for a week now. really used to military style watches with big thick bands. however the functionality of this watch makes up for it. you're not going to get 4 days or maybe I just use the watch too much I averaged about two and a half 3 days. does anyone know where you can get wider bands for this understand the attachment point is 22 mm


Well finally got my Rose Gold 42mm yesterday and love it. So light on my wrist I just can't feel it. So it really is comfortable! Battery life is excellent despite my family group WhatsApp chat buzzing on the watch every few minutes. Kept the original watch face as it looks so nice. Does everything I want it to and the improved speakers sound very good. Even music isn't too awful through them ...


Wife got the 42" Rose Gold LTE through TMobile. Had it for two days and sent it back. Battery life was horrible. The non-LTE version would be the one to get. The Rose Gold is a work of art. It is absolutely beautiful.


Got a 46mm on Sunday at TMobile. Wow, I've had an Apple watch before but this thing makes the Apple watch seem like a POS. I love this thing, haven't charged it since Sunday, I've been sleep tracking and testing the auto workout function. Really enjoying it so far
