Lazada offer looks the best, $30 discount voucher for today and free wireless battery pack.

Too bad I already preordered from USA! They should have announced the launch date earlier.

Dunno about the SG watches, but the USA watches just got an update to fix GPS problems

Many folks are also reporting that the step counter seems way off. :|

I've been holding out for a good smart watch that's not the Apple Watch (no iPhone) and hoping this is it. But looks like ... sigh.

For LTE watch I was told you need to pay for the eSIM. Only Singtel and M1 has it.

Is it a one time payment or monthly fee?

Had a look around but the Bluetooth one doesn't seem to be available in black anywhere? The staff at two Samsung stores were a bit clueless with one saying the black was only available in the LTE version and another saying only the Under Armour version was available.

Has anyone had better luck?

I went to 313 concept store they said black will be release next month.

Im close to buying the watch especially they have free strap worth 58sgd included but somehow its a deal breaker to have step counter and gps issues. That is one of the most basic feature of a smartwatch. Samsung should fix it before they release the product.

Agreed! Absolutely. Its a travesty that they can't even get such a basic feature right.

If you have a look at DC Rainmaker's review on YouTube, he also plots the heart rate tracking performance compared to Apple Watch 5 and 2 other reference devices and found that the Active 2's HR detection is also not fantastic

Sounds like they needed more QC.

Would like to know this as well. I asked Circles which is my provider but they have no eSIM capability.
