Its taking so long because Samsung doesn't care for their customers after selling a buggy product. I have several Samsung products at home and a very a happy user of them, but the Watch is a pain and so it the support :-(
I had bought me a galaxy watch for christmas. I'm going to return it without even opening it. This lack of whatsapp functionality and google services, and lack of care from samsung is unacceptable and made me change my mind. I'm not going to give all this money for keeping a bulky thing on my wrist that does pretty much nothing significant
Sounds like the best thing to do. Fitbit is owned by google so I expect things can only get better in terms of software and apps.
I bought the galaxy watch on cyber monday without having time to do any research but confiding on the long established partnership between samsung and google, but I'm returning it mainly because the two seem to be in competition now, at least when it comes to watches. And we all know there's no competition of course.
Samsung, come on...
I paired my Polar Vantage V with a Note 10 and it vibrates on incoming whatapp calls. Had to enable silent notifications in phone->settings->notifications for whatsapp.
Unfortunately the exact same settings don't work with my Galaxy watch.
Yeah, it's kinda sad to admit it but I also have a Garmin fitness tracker that can vibrate on various incoming calls, including Whatsapp. How lame is its, that we have the latest Samsung tech and it can't do it too.
Its even worse that no one of Samsung even care and say anything about this issue. Having an issue is one, not even replying and taking the customers serious is so bad. Never heard of the voice of the customer I guess.-(
I have the same issue. I could get the call notification when linked up with Iphone but didn't get any when I i connected it to my S10. Very insane. I didn't new this before I got this watch. And whats with the whatsapp call. Why can't they get the whatscall working. Amazign samsung. You guys are worst then those chinese smartwatches which are way cheap and they work. LOL.
