    Alright guys/gals, my Huawei Watch is starting to feel like it needs to be replaced. I'm impatient when it comes to waiting for new toys, so I'd like to get one soon. I'm ok with sticking with Wear OS, but if I go that route I may as well wait for manufacturers to release the new crop on the 3100 chip. I really like the Galaxy Watch, but I know some things won't work as well with a Pixel 2XL, which is still my daily. What's everyone got? Anyone have the GW with a non Samsung phone?

    I know a co-worker with a GW watch and a Pixel XL. He seems to like it. I'm not sure what all the differences are between Wear OS and Tizen Wear (or whatever they call it) but he seems satisfied that it does just about everything my Wear OS watch does. Happy shopping!

    I've read you can't initiate messages, only reply to them. I haven't heard much else in the way of incompatibilities. I love the dial navigation, the OS seems very fluid which is another plus. I just worry about app support. I know Wear OS has a lot of apps, but not very many good ones. I'd like to keep the ecosystem as fluid as possible, I'm not sure if Tizen would allow for that, but it seems like Samsung has a pretty good watch interface.
