Ratings and Reviews
App doesn’t work, interferes with watch
This app is completely ridiculous, my watch won’t stay connected if I leave my phone 10 ft away from me. It is excruciatingly slow and has really no features in the app that aren’t features within the watch settings. The funny part about it is, I had to reinstall Wear OS because I thought maybe that would help. But I noticed that once I had uninstalled the app, al of a sudden the watch sped up, and was functioning much more quickly. But of course you have to have the app for the watch to work. This is definitely a problem from google wear OS, and not my watch. You guys need to scrap it and rebuild from the ground up. I usually set google to a high standard with anything. This app is a joke. Since the app is so slow and nonfunctional, I had to reset to factory setting five times for it to finish setup without a crash. It spent me the whole day. And I believe that is ridiculous- it should’ve been able to set up and get working at an hour TOPS. Can we know if this is getting resolved ever so we can get functions watches, or should we all just say enough is enough and get a watch that has an actually functional OS?
iPhone X max
I just bought a Movado conect 2.0 In Rose gold and downloaded the wear OS app. At first, I was a little disappointed when I read the reviews that you couldn’t get messages or calls if you had an iPhone but I love Movado watches and I wasn’t going to return it. At first, I wasn’t able to get text or calls but after syncing my email account I was able to get all my contacts, text messages on my watch as well as calls. I don’t know if I’m the only one experiencing this; but I’m able to read all texts on my watch as well as take the calls on my watch. I can talk and they can hear me but I can’t hear them on my watch but I didn’t buy the watch to talk to people for that I have my phone. I’m happy with just been able to read the texts on my watch and been able to see who’s calling me before I pick up my phone. I have no problems with connectivity so far, my watch has stayed connected the whole time and I get all my emails and calendars appointments. I can track my heart rate and steps as well as calories. I love this watch. So far no problems.
I got this watch thinking that it was an alternative to the Apple Watch. I’ve now had this watch for 3 months and I couldn’t be more disappointed in a product. I’d like to think that the main issue is this “wear os by google” application and not the actually watch, but I could be mistaken. My watch is connected to my phone roughly 3 minutes of the entire day, it is continuously trying to download a systems update, it always shows that I’ve walked 0 steps during the day, and despite having Bluetooth and WiFi turned on “automatic”, I NEVER have access to internet. The app tells you to “tap the reconnect icon on your watch”....which gets you nowhere. The help page says to go to “wear os by google > connectivity > WiFi > add network”. It’s interesting advice considering my app is up to date and there is no such option as “connectivity”. I absolutely hate leaving poor reviews like this, but I feel like others should know what they are getting themselves into if they opt for this product. I wouldn’t waste my money on any product that requires this application to operate, until the developers give this application a 360 degree upgrade.
