    The galaxy watch or the gear s3, because the galaxy watch has great battery life. The gear s3 had horrible battery life.

    Possibly. My gear s3 was horrible. That's why I upgraded and the galaxy watch only uses about 25% a day or less.

    I have had the Galaxy Watch for a couple weeks. I charge it every couple days. After two days, there is still enough for a third day, or even more. But I charge it anyway. Battery life is very good.

    No real point in syncing with a phone that isn't yours. If you are truly swapping I would get a Galaxy Watch.

    Just keep your xr. I sold my X and series 4 to switch to the s10. No point in using an apple watch on android.

    Are you happy with your decision?

    Yes but I'm a regular switcher between iOS and Android. Sold my X 64gb for $550 and series 4 for $380, paid $890 for my s10 + buds + Samsung case, and $200 for the galaxy watch active.

    As great as the Apple Watch is you will likely use the galaxy watch for the same things

    I’m in the process of selling my series 4 and have bought the galaxy watch

    Just waiting for my S10 is now

    Another good watch option is either the Ticwatch 2 (NOT Android Wear), or the newer TicWatch Android Wear versions. Great hardware, reasonable prices AND works with both Android and iPhone. Pass the Apple watch along to the husband.

    Yes it's basically the gear s4. They have 2 sizes as well. Obviously the smaller one won't get as good of battery life. I believe the smaller one comes in rose gold too if you want something a little more feminine.

    I sold my apple watch series 4 and used that money to do the early upgrade for the S10+, in the mean time I bought the galaxy watch 42mm in black, it's 3:18 eastern time and I have 50% left. I turned the watch on yesterday at 9am and even slept with it on to track my sleeping

    The non Android version is most likely only available used

    I have the Samsung Watch S3 Frontier. When I got mine the battery life was great. Then they came out with an update and the battery life was awful. Then they came out with another update because so many people complained. I think they fixed something on the update and my battery life has been great. I can probably have it last for 2 days (I don't really know since I charge it overnight) but when I charge it the battery isn't even half gone.

    Also, I like round watches not square or rectangle watches. When I grew up that what watches were. They were round.

    For those stating how good their GW battery life is, do you also get good battery life after you've spent an hour or more of working out? How many notifications do you have syncing? Do you reply to text messages via your watch? What type of watch face are you using?

    I ask this because these are all normal functions that impact the battery one way or the other. I have the Gear S3 and if I don't go to the gym, I can get through 2 days without a charge. Some complaints about the S3, but I don't expect mine to go 5 days between charges. I charge my phone daily, sometimes more lol, but my watch is doing alot for such a little device.

    As far as the original question here. Either give your hubby the Apple watch or sell it and buy a Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Sport if you want more of a fitness featured watch, or the Gear S3. My Gear S3 has worked awesomely (awesomely, is that even a word?) and won't trade it for anything. Well unless mine is dead and the next Galaxy Watch brings back MST. You'll lose some functionality between an apple watch and the S10 and that's not fair to you or the apple watch.

    Yeah I've decided to wait. I'll see how all the reviews are once people are using the S10. I might just upgrade that XR to the next iPhone.
