Originally I was looking at possibly upgrading from an active 2 to the watch 4 classic, but after seeing reports online and chatting to UK Support, I've now been fully dissuaded in buying the new watch.
WearOS is universal across android brands and this was one thing I was looking forward to for switching back to a WearOS watch. But it transpires from the information provided that a lot of features will not work unless you have a Samsung phone.
I've also been told the new watch will only provide 10 hours of battery. Seriously it can't last a full day? That has to be incorrect information from support surely.
I don't want to be tied to a manufacturer and if I swap phones I want my watch to still work.
What a pity Samsung wish to lock the watch down so only properly works with their phones.
