    I'm not expecting any BF/holiday promotions on the phones from Google substantially better than what we have at launch, but I'll be surprised if there aren't some specific to the watch that would let you order one fully funded or maybe getting an extra band in the bargain.
    Good point

    I mean not Samsung watch 5 battery obviously but I guess as long as it gets you through a day then that's good. How long does it take to charge back to 100?

    Wore my watch to work today. Decided Im going to return it after a couple hours. If you are used to wearing any generous sized face watches, this is going to seem diminutive. I am used to wearing watches with at least 40mm faces, not the entire watch being that size. Its just way too small for me to get used to. If they had come out with two sizes that would have been optimal but this, IMHO, is more of a womans sized watch.

    TBH, after wearing the Huawei Watch for 6 years, the Pixel Watch seems like a bit of a break from that monster. I'm kind of liking it! The screen MAY be a bit small, but I think it's something I can get used to.

    I bought one. I'm tired of resetting my gw5pro everytime I switch from my zf4 to pixel
    Can you switch phones without resetting on the Pixel Watch???

    Probably not. I still have my gw5p so won't need to.

    I cancelled my order on it so I don't have it yet. Will reorder once my 10% store credit gets added to my 200.00 credit from pre-order that way it will only cost me 50 bucks.

    So, what are the on-going feelings about this watch? Happy, okay, disappointed?

    I've got a dying Samsung Gear S3 (battery lasts about two hours). I've been quite happy with the Gear S3 for a number of years.

    I see Amazon now has a return window through Jan for the Holiday shopping season. I suspect that while still new it may go on sale sometime in the next few months. I am concerned about its "bezel-less" face and hitting it into things.

    So looking for opinions now that you've had it for a month or so.

    Oh, I do have the Pixel 6 Pro phone on Google Fi.

    Thanks in advance.

    My opinion only, but for the $$ I'd get a Watch5. It's cheaper, more refined hardware and software and the battery lasts way longer.

    I'm sure the pixel watch is nice, but I think I will wait for an iteration or 2.

    I've had it a couple of weeks now, replacing my Samsung Watch 3, and using it with the P7 Pro. It is light years better than the Watch 3, but that is of course 2 generations old... IMO, it's the best looking smartwatch out there bar none, but it is pricy - I really think they should've gone with an aluminum body (like the basic Samsung and Apple watches) to keep the price down, as while the stainless steel is really nice, it definitely drove the price up. I was fortunate enough to get one free in a giveaway or otherwise probably would have waited, as my Watch 3 was still doing fine.

    As to the bezel, I know with 100% certainty I would end up at least scratching it up over time, and at worst cracking it, so I picked up a bezel ring from Ringke that eliminates my concern there and still looks really good (though not as elegant as without).

    I really like it. I replaced my galaxy watch four with this one and haven't had any regrets. I use fitbit or peloton for my fitness needs so not having to wear two devices is a big part of why I like it. Battery life is an issue, but I do a quick recharge at the end of the day and that helps it to make it through the night.

    I'm actually thinking of buying a Pixel Watch. I've been using Fitbits for at least six years but I'm looking for a bit of an all-around watch now. Not an urgent purchase though. First, I need to get the Pixel 7. 🤣

    Everyone seems to be abandoning the Pixel 6 forum (sniff).

    I had a fit bit and it did not do well on steep hikes, really bad stats. But, and this is my quirk, I'm not fond of 3rd parties having some of my health records, heart rate, sleep patterns. So I might not even use that aspect. The Gear has those numbers but it is not shared (at least, I don't think so, not that I sleep with it anyway.)

    I have both and agree with this. Nothing wrong with the Pixel Watch, but the Sammy is more refined.

    I will follow up my original response that I found a really good deal on the TicWatch Pro 3 GPS for around $200 on Amazon and jumped on it. I had the original TicWatch and loved it but was hoping the Pixel watch would replace it. The TW Pro 3 just does everything I want. Big screen, loooooong battery life, health/sleep tracking. It will also get WearOS 3 eventually. I had thought about the Galaxy watch but I dont want bixby and samsung pay crap. I just wanted a google experience.

    I had a TicWatch and really liked it, it has been a while. Only complaint I had was the speed of the UI, but I am sure that is better since. I hate laggy electronics.

    I have the 5 pro and use google pay and google assistant.

    That was my complaint back then too but the new one is super snappy. Plus you can still go into developer options and turn off animations.

    I know! It's sad! I still pop over there from time to time though! No one is frequenting the Pixel 5 forums! I guess this is what happens when new phones come out!

    You know, my Fitbit isn't always super accurate, either. Very often I think I'm "active" or "in motion" more than it says I am.
