    It's about time... hopefully that means the rumoured Pixel watches too. The 2100 didn't feel like an upgrade at all from the 400.

    Android watches are a bit laughable at the minute. Qualcomm really needs to step up with some very impressive features, matched by new software obviously.

    All Qualcomm can do is make a watch faster. But I would love something new and out the box.

    I'm liking the look of the new Galaxy watch - seriously tempted to pick one up. I would pre-order but I go on holiday on the 7th and of course it would be delivered on the 7th so looks like I'll miss out on the bundled charger :/

    Hoping to pick up a bargain from the release to be honest, in the hope others drop their price. Still torn between the Hauwai Watch 2 and the Gear S3. HW2 Classic has just come on deal for 1 hour 30 mins for £240..... tempting...

    I really like the look of the Gen 4 but not enough to buy one to replace my Gen 3.

    My Gen 3 has gotten better with every update.

    I was planning on ordering one of these but don't think I will now. It seems to be a slightly redesigned s3 with no real differentiating features??

    Amazon. It was cheap on lightning deal and I had a 15% off voucher apparently so applied it.

    Why the hell is the galaxy watch 46mm only available in one colour???? And why a black bezel with silver casing.

    I know it’s mental. The smaller, cheaper ones have better choices. Same with the strap choice. I think the 46mm is limited to 3 whereas the 42mm has a choice of 9

    Nothing as yet. I think it will have the new chipset and WearOS P is now out of beta.
