    Okay so I lived in the apple world from the very first iPod and still love their products. I love the note 8 more though. My gripe is that I haven't found a watch as good as the apple watch? Anyone been able pair the apple watch to the note 8 or have any watch suggestions better than the gear S2?

    From what I've heard the Huawei Smartwatch 2 is a pretty decent smartwatch.

    I came from the iPhone and the apple watch too. I have the Huawei watch 2 right now. I like it for the most part, the battery life could be better. The build quality is really solid. The problem is really just with Android wear. I don't think it's very good. I don't think android wear integrates as well as Apple in the data that is collected into various health apps. I am considering buying the Samsung gear sport watch to see how well it works, it looks pretty good.

    I have had my Gear Sport (blue) for about 10 days and am loving it. I moved from the Gear S2.

    Pebble Time Steel still works great(nothing is disabled at this point), CHEAP on ebay and gets over a week on a charge...(I could never move to a 2-3 battery watch after owning a few Pebbles)

    I swear by the Hauwei (first one). No, it really isn't as good as an Apple Watch but better than the gear and WAY better than the LG (IMO)

    The Samdung Gear S3 (any model) is the closest to the Apple Watch that I have found. The Samsung Health is awesome on this watch.

    After comparing the Gesr S3 to an Android Wear 2.0 watch, the Gear S3 was the best for the money to me.

    i use the gear 3 frontier, i really enjoyed the apple watch had the s2, the only thing i find annoying is how awkward it is to switch out the watch straps compared to the apple watch, other than that the gear 3 is a brilliant watch

    Like you I have the apple watch and a Note 8.. I love my apple watch and don't mind at all that it can't sync with the Note. I just charge it up and use it as a watch. Second nicest watch Ive ever worn..as a watch.

    I likely won't buy an android compatible smart watch at this point. The apple watch taught me that I'd rarely use it to sync my phone anyway. And oy vey... the pain it caused to delete old imessages!

    Not possible and no you won't find a Android watch close in quality. If you're hooked on the watch it's easier to stay on ios at least for your daily driver.

    I've used the Apple Watch Series 1, and got a S2 when I initially bought a OnePlus 3T. Worked great and sometimes better than Apple Watch for my needs. I wasn't a major user of the health app in either ecosystem.

    The S3 is a very good watch with MST for Samsung Pay built in as well. If you are fine with the size of the watch, I'd recommend that

    Can I suggest the ticwatch 2? It's less than 200 dollars and works on both Android AND iOS. It uses a modified Android OS itself and is NOT Android wear.
