Why I'm glad I made the switch from Google to Samsung

Why I'm glad I made the switch from Google to Samsung

I used Google devices exclusively for years. At the time, I loved my Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, the first two generations of the Pixel (XL versions), the Nexus 9 and Pixel C tablets, and even the Pixelbook. But after a few weeks with the Pixel 3 XL, I had to face a truth that I'd been trying to deny: Google hardware makes too many compromises. I went through at least three of each Pixel, all replaced on warranty for one reason or another.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 has a ridiculously long name, but it's still the best smartwatch money can buy. Since switching to it from Wear OS last year, I haven't looked back.

Galaxy Watch Active2 review: Dancing on the grave of Wear OS

Galaxy Watch Active2 review: Dancing on the grave of Wear OS

There's no denying that Apple makes the best all-around smartwatches, especially if you care about fitness, so Android-compatible watches continue to battle for second place. The most recent entry from the Wear OS camp is the fifth-gen Fossil Q, and while that watch is a decent step up from every other device with the same software, it still hasn't addressed some of the platform's core problems poor fitness tracking, degrading app library, and so on.

Samsung's new watch is a follow-up to the Galaxy Watch Active, which was (by most accounts) the best overall smartwatch for Android devices.
