Galaxy Watch 4 - dissuaded in buying

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.

Won't ever have another Huawei device, their support is appalling and they stop supporting their devices after 6 months.

My thread was to do with why I'm dissuaded against buying the watch 4 and to provide feedback to Samsung, not about purchasing other watches from other brands.
Just because you have issues with your note, don't start hijacking other posts.

In the end I've ended up purchasing it due to the trade-in and discounts along with the £75 Google play store credit, I'll still have my S20FE for another 18 months, so for the overall price can't complain

Consider potential downsides before buying the Galaxy Watch 4. Users have reported occasional software glitches and compatibility issues with third-party apps. Additionally, some find its battery life to be relatively short compared to other smartwatches in the market.
