    Got this a week ago on sale. So far battery life is about the same as other Google watches don’t understand the complaints about it. It’s fast no real lag compared to other watches and unlike the Samsung galaxy watch it’s running google so no bixby. So what’s the problem??

    Thanks for the review, appreciate it. I'm looking for a watch with GPS (for running) and indoor as well, has on-board music and ability to dial out SOS (911) without phone nearby (preferably without a cellular data plan). Seems like possibly the Apple watch is the only watch that can do this, but don't care of it's design. Any other suggestions?

    Great review. I came too late to the Pebble market and discovered the loss. I still kinda want one of those, but alas I feel the voice responding will be lost and I really want that.

    You know what is driving me mad? I can't find out one simple thing. I've never had a smart watch so what i can't figure out is, will it be able to notify me of sms going to my phone, or does it use a different SIM card – so, it is like having another phone. I already have two phones so, really don't want a third. Can anyone advise me? Thank you in advance!

    Hi, I hope you could help me with this problem: I can't connect my Huawei Watch 2 4G to any available WiFi networks – it attempts to connect, but shortly after that shows NO CONNECTION to the network. It works fine, when paired with my Samsung Galaxy S6 phone. Any ideas ? Thanks in advance.

    Do you think good idea to spend all day with watch only with Bluetooth headset for calling? I just use one sim for calling only and its my main sim so i want to go without any bulk in my pocket so what you say? This watch worth for use this watch only without any mobile?

    Please suggest me which one to buy. Huawei watch 2 classic/sport ot Lg watch sport. I like the Lg because it has bigger and better display but ive heard that its battery life is a lot worse. Also it is really thick but that doesn't bother me. The thing that actually does is that i do not know if the lg watch will fit my arm good as i want to use the watch for fitness workouts. Huawei doesn't have these issues but it lacks crown and has smaller display. Please help me choose?

    Worst what I'll waiting.
    1/ screen size not so big
    2/ after 1 week use I must make restart, watch is not usable. Very long reaction. Every week. Very bad memory optimalization and task.
    3/ Google wear not user friendly. System is very easy not APN setup. Not have language support and keyboard settings. Google maps not working without Mobile. I have Sim version and data on but Google…
    3/ Google music is horrible to use. Not have randomly play. Not have simple lost of offline music. Synchronization my Playlist is so lazy.
    4/ wear not have USB mass storage. IS 21 century Google?

    I actually really like the watch. It is comfortable to wear. The battery life is pretty decent compared to others even after 2 hour workout or long runs with heart rate monitor going. Yeah, I would have liked a better wrist band but I just got a nicer silicone band. I wish the dial would turn or really they could have just done without it. I guess they thought 'sport'…hmmm must have dial with numbers. This has become my second daily watch after the Pebble 2 also which is still my favorite.
