I’m not sure I can give up the Apple Watch. It’s leaps and bounds better than any Wear OS or Samsung watch. Anyone else feel the same way? It’s literally the only thing keeping me from switching

At least for me my main SIM would be in an Android device if it weren’t for the Apple Watch. So far I haven’t found anything equally good. Maybe someday if also Google Pay or Samsung Pay landed here.

Get two phones. Problem solved.

Felt the same way. I had the S3 Gear, and Galaxy watch, and both are almost basic vs the apple watch which has so many more features and apps that support it.

I have the LTE version of the Series 4. What’s to stop you from just leaving it in LTE mode all the time?

What does it sync to? Where do you review your workout and activity history? You eliminate the benefits of iMessage, FaceTime audio, apple podcasts...makes minimal sense.

And I agree. I spent hours trying to figure out an android comparable one for workouts, music, and smart function to no avail and cancelled my pixel preorder. My Apple Watch has been pretty essential (including for disconnecting from my phone like at the gym but still being reachable for emergencies).

Sorry. I was thinking you would keep your iPhone too, like I am doing. If I go out with my Pixel, the iPhone will stay at home. I’ll still have full connectivity that way, since my Series 4 is the LTE variant. After a workout or a day of doing whatever, I’ll still be syncing to my iPhone X.
