    Six days with the Galaxy Watch.

    Pros:

    1. Aesthetically pleasing
    2. Battery life around 4.5 to 5 days
    3. Awesome screen
    4. Notifications
    5. Bezel is awesome. Like it more than gen 3 Apple Watch
    6. Charging dock

    Issues:

    1. Calorie tracking is way off. On the low end. Only tracks one type of burn, active.
    2. Garmin Fenix3 and Apple Watch gen 3 do a much better job of fitness tracking / calorie tracking
    3. Samsung customer care is horrible.
    4. Rotate wrist movement to view only 75% effective
    5. Samsung Health app poor compared to Apple Health and Garmin equivalents

    Two spin classes, 2 5k runs (treadmill) and two elliptical sessions with the device on.

    Jury is still out. Leaning toward keeping it.

    The calorie counting is an absolute abortion. It is waaay off during a work out.

    I wonder if it's only tracking calories burned and not including BMR?
