i previously owned a fitbit but when it suddenly stopped working within a year and a half of owning it. then having a not so nice time with customer service i decided it wasd time for a change. i purchased the active watch because of the sleek design and because i have a samsung phone. i find after wearing it for a 12hour shift the battery is significantly low and needs to be charged if i need it that next night for work. also you have to wear it too tight in order for it to read anything. i also get more notifications about being disconnected than anything. not what i expected but it will do for the need if it.

Review after 1 year of using the watch

In the beginning it was great. A week before the warranty ended, the GPS and heart rate monitor malfunctioned. I sent it in for repair and it came back even worse. I sent it in a second time and they sent the same one with a new GPS module. It worked great for 3 months and now its garbage. I am very active and the name of the watch should not be called "Active". If you want a long term watch, this is not the one for you.

Great Watch and Fitness Tracker

being a former fitbit user, i can say that galaxy is so much better. no connection issues, no sync issues and i barely had to do any setup. the active automatically connected to my phone and basically set itself up. i will be a long time galaxy user.

Will the watch accurately display blood pressure? I've read a number of articles how Samsung is doing this (PPG) that call into question the technique.

The best way to check blood pressure is still an arm cuff. Wrist cuff blood pressure machines are less accurate, but the Galaxy Watch Active provides results that are sufficient to assist well with monitoring, and communication with the app.
