I have a Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, but switched to a Garmin (Epix 2nd Gen, though I also tried a Venu 2 Plus) and while it’s nice that Samsung is adding GPX support and navigation I just doubt I’ll ever go back.
Sure, Samsung is ahead on smartwatch features, but after years and years of using WearOS I realized that I don’t actually use any of that other than the notifications. The only thing Samsung does that I feel like I’m missing out on with Garmin is actually being able to type out messages to respond with, but the rest of the notification support works just as well on Garmin.
But even if Samsung adds navigation, Garmin (even on the cheaper Venu 2) is just a million times ahead on fitness/sport features right now. I mean I’ll reserve judgment slightly to see where Samsung ends up, but as of the GW4 it’s not even in the same ballpark. (I also will be keeping an eye on the Pixel Watch but I don’t have much confidence there either – even with Fitbit features).

So it’s basically going to be just as annoying as Sharepoint now. Great.

Shaming Apple is one thing, but the real question is whether Google can shame this carrier called Google Fi into supporting RCS when using the Google Messages "Sync Messages, calls, & voicemail" setting.
Kidding of course, but it’s ridiculous that Google still hasn’t allowed for RCS support when using the sync option which is a key feature for Fi. Of course, until Apple signs on board (if ever) it honestly doesn’t matter much for my use since everyone I text uses an iPhone. Makes it an easy decision to use the sync feature instead.
