Galaxy Watch and Strava
OK; so I'm initially a little disappointed. I've been following Samsung's Galaxy watch for some time, their next generation watch following on from the Gear 3.
I've been trying to find a Smart Watch for quite a while that has all the necessary sensors and features I'd like.
Yes the Apple Watch / WatchOS does that, but it doesn't look like a watch. Google's WearOS watches look great, but don't have all the sensors and I didn't want to plump for a pure activity tracker like a Garmin.
So.... I was super excited to see on the Galaxy Watch website that it looked like Strava was natively supported. https://www.samsung.com/global/galaxy/galaxy-watch/
I buy the watch today and low and behold I can't find the Strava app' in the Galaxy Watch App store. Was I duped. Is there no native support on Galaxy Watch?!
Personally I think Samsung are a little stupid for insisting on running Tizen instead of Google's WearOS (which natively runs Strava), but I was seriously hoping this watch had native support. Finally. On Tizen.
Is this not so? Is the app' just delayed, or the Galaxy Watch App store delayed in deploying it?
I would support all comments to support Tizen natively to be honest; you are potentially missing out on a large group of users running Samsung watches.
