I have had my #Galaxywatch46 Classic since it was introduced exactly FIVE years ago this month.
I love this watch so much that I bought three of them, one to wear, one on charge and one for spare, just in case
Since then several galaxy watches have been introduced except that none has been as functional and as good looking as the Galaxy watch (46mm) with its rotating bezel, LONG battery life, LTE connectivity, ECG recording, Sleep and Activity tracking etc etc, the Galaxy Watch 46mm was way ahead of its time when it was introduced, ....until now and the introduction of Galaxy watch 6 classic which looks like the galaxy watch 46mm identical twin 😁
Judging by its pictures, the galaxy watch 6 looks Exactly the same as Galaxy watch 46mm which makes me wonder if Samsung finally understood that the Galaxy watch 46mm is in fact their BEST watch, ever and that's why they are going back to the same design, five years later and some 5 different designs, since.
What do you think? Does the Galaxy Watch 6 remind you of your Galaxy watch 46mm?

Unfortunately for people who bought the Watch 5, watch 6 was introduced too soon and it is already being sold everywhere including cell phone companies . All of this has taken the flagship status of Watch 5 and handed it over to Watch 6.
At any rate, I still like my old Watch 46mm and prefer it to watch 5 or 6 because it pretty much has all their features plus the looks 😂
BTW watch 4 was a disaster.

Battery life of only 40 hours for watch 6 is very poor. My 5 years old Galaxy 46mm has a minimum of 80 hours battery life.
Watch 4 classic battery life of only 40 hours, is in my view very low, so watch 5 (and of course my old Galaxy) are the winners in battery life .

Yes, but that is just disabling a GPS function to increase battery life a little more. My old 5 year old watch 46 (and watch 5 classic) have an 80 hour battery life with the GPS on full time. It is necessary to have the GPS function , especially for people like me who travel to different time zones all the time, relying on info such as local weather etc.
Anyway, point I am making is that it is hard to understand why Samsung keeps going from a good battery to a bad battery and then a good battery and then a bad battery😁
Why can't they just use the same darn battery that they started using 5 years and 6 models ago?
Google Pixel Watch is even worse. The max they can go (without much of the functions turned on) is 24 hours😁
