Disclaimer: I've only had it one day, so this is an initial impression. I will update in the future if I run into problems or anything changes.

So after setting it up, it required two updates to get up to date. Makes sense, it's been a little while since this beautiful thing was released. I purchased a watch face called the Pixel Minimum face (as seen in the photo), and i just love it. The Fossil faces look sharp, and I might use them in some situations but in general this face is great. The sensors don't seem to be the most accurate, but are close enough.

The battery life - not so great, but it charges incredibly fast, 1% about every 10 seconds. If smart features aren't required, they can almost all be disabled and should make it last quite a while as just a regular watch. Of course I hope the WearOS 3 update will better be able to handle the hardware and eek out better battery life, but only time will tell.

The speaker is, lackluster, but it's so tiny I wouldn't expect it to play a concert. It's good enough for google assistant to talk a bit. Calls on it are pretty hard to hear, but again, it's a watch.. I'd probably prefer to use my phone anyway.

I haven't had a chance to use google pay with it yet, but I'm sure it works just fine.

Initial conclusion: It's a fast, fast charging, snappy and gorgeous work of art. It combines form and function in a comfortable to wear device. The battery, well, sucks, but considering how fast it charges it's forgivable - for me at least. The built in speaker is nice to have, but won't be something I use often to make or receive calls as it's not quite loud enough to hear without holding it right up to my ear.

I would recommend this for any tech enthusiasts who also like beautiful things. It's not a dedicated health tracker, and shouldn't be treated as such. It is a smart watch that fulfills all the functions a smart watch (In my humble opinion) should, with some extra frills around the edges.
