Thanks.. that's what i need to know..
getting msg notification to the watch is not really necessary to me.. can be counter productive, distracting..
This can be done from the phone itself..

Mainly want to understand the Samsung Pay only
Thanks again.

Actually I am using the Gear Sport with my HTC and the only cons for me is that text messages can't reply from watch. Almost everything else works including Samsung Pay for me which is setup on my watch through the Galaxy Wearable app.
I don't think the videos are misleading, its just not in the right context you expected to be.

Since inception of the first generation samsung galaxy smart watch, it has never been fully compatible with iOS devices. Appel made it this way so as to maintain relevance of apple watch.

Whereas for android devices, so long your android device has minimum RAM and storage requirements, the app should work with the phone. In terms of Samsung Pay, android system must possess basic security framework for it to work.

All in all, don't use use galaxy watch if you don't have a samsung phone, because some functionalities are hidden and you won't realise the full potential anyway.
ya, do understand that.. but Samsung smart phone never really attract me to get one
That's why want to understand from other people on how is the experience if paired with non Samsung Smart phones.

Same sentiments. I can tell you with a competent Android phone, you will get 90-95% of the experience so you are not losing anything at all really.
It is always good to run an Android phone like the Pixel for example with almost no bloat.

Anyone have notification issues? I don't get any vibration from whatsapp and neither does it show on my watch screen unless I swipe right to check.

Seems like a common issue but I can't seem to find a fix yet

It worked fine with my pixel 3xl except the heart rate monitor was not constant. Sometimes never measure. I paired with my Note 9 and everything works perfectly.
