  6. It it true u can leave ur note 10 plus at home and just wear ur ative watch 2 and recieve ur email and calls give me an answer

    1. Yes, my Galaxy watch has its own LTE phone plan. I can leave my phone at home and make calls, texts, emails, mapping, watch YouTube videos… whatever. It’s like a little phone. Pretty awesome.

  7. Can i use snapchat and Facebook messenger on the galaxy watch? If so how do i download them?

  8. How can I stop system notifications constantly telling me that XYZ is draining my battery. Every hour. Where is the “no means no” setting for this watch. Why does it try and force you to use Bixby? – I’m unable to uninstall it so I get pestered by it regularly. I will never buy another Samsung watch – too many lock-ins where they try and force you to do things

  9. I had a brilliant app on my Samsung Galaxy watch which would just keep the watch on. Always on. Like watches are supposed to be. the battery lasted only 1 day – which was perfectly ok by my – since I sleep every night. The downside is the app didn’t system suppress system messages that would would tell you every 1 or 2 hours that this app was draining your battery. I made the mistake of lending the watch to a friend, and to cut a long story short, had to reset it. Now I can’t find this app – anyone any clue?

    1. You can do this in settings, you go to settings – watches faces – watch always on and set it to on

  10. What is Twitter Trends? Cannot find it in store.
    Lack of apps is so annoying, no working YouTube, WhatsApp, Telegram, what’s a point of having watch for 500€ (active 2 lte) if they a basically useless. Thinking of returning them back before 2 weeks period will expire

  11. Anyone know of a score keeping app for the Galaxy Watch. Want to keep track of score whilst playing squash

  12. Why does the Samsung Galaxy Watch NOT have a timer like the Gear3?
    It has a world clock and an alt-barometer but no timer( that I need for work daily).

  13. In Norway we need Ruter, Yr, Google maps, Google home. There also needs to be an option for cross country skiing in Samsung Health.

  14. Is Google maps and facebook messenger available apps, if not, will they become available in the future?
