@GizmoMKD: While Google Assistant is not available on the Galaxy Watch, you may wish to utilise S Voice via the apps screen for a range of voice command options. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause you.

If you have the SmartThings app installed on your Galaxy Watch then I believe you may be able to connect to Google Assistant. To find out more please check the following link: https://support.smartthings.com/hc/en-gb/articles/214837343-How-to-connect-Google-Assistant-with-Sma....

Bixby sucks. It is S Voice named something even dumber   how about you let Tizen run assistant and give up the fallacy of  Bixby being useable

My opinion is that Bixby feels somewhat unpolished and in Beta !

 

Just my personal look on this.

 

So even on my Note 9 I only use Google Assistant when needed.

 

I also have Google Assistant chosen on my Bose Wireless Bluetooth Headphones over Bixby.

 

Having this assistant on the watch sounds simple enough but it may not be so simple in applying it to the watches system and files.

 

That said Samsung know people want options like this.

 

Maybe the Samsung Community Team could add this to the Community-Feedback thread ?

Here are the results of a simple command between using Bixby and using Google Assistant:

 

Bixby: 

Question:  What is the weather in Brevard, North Carolina?

It hears:  What is the weather in Brevar North Carolina?  (Note the missing "d" in Brevard, no matter how many times I emphasize the "d" and using the training phrases in the app.)

It responds with:  The weather in Raleigh, NC.

 

Google Assistant:

Question:  What is the weather in Brevard, North Carolina?

It hears:  What is the weather in Brevard North Carolina?

It responds with: "It looks kind of cloudy."  It gives the temperature and forecast for Brevard, North Carolina.

 

Which will come first:

A decent upgrade to Bixby so it works well?

or

Apps that allow use of Google Assistant or Alexa on the Galaxy watch?

 

Here is a start for Alexa, but not full implementation yet:  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.aktuna.gear.alexa

I tried to use Bixby on my new Galaxy watch but is is not really functioning. I use Google asssistant on my Samsung S6 and it works always great. 

 

Please let the owners of the fantastic Galaxy watches make their own choice about which voice assistants want to use. Please help us with this issue!!!
