    A question about your experience with the Galaxy watch.. if I may....
    How reliable have you found the alarm features?
    I need a band or watch that is super reliable for alarm timing.
    I have had less than stellar experience with alarm apps on my android phones (All Samsung Notes), especially as the O/S has become more locked down.

    Refund:
    I noticed an email from Microsoft on 4/26, but had the same concerns about a spear-phishing attack as has been expressed here.
    Thanks to everyone on this thread for allaying those fears.
    Payment info submitted.

    Like many others, I had gone through a couple of Band 1's, and a couple of Band 2's.
    I have been back on my original Band 1 for about a year... but am now looking for a replacement.

    I have not used my Watch Active for Alarms... There is an Alarm widget on my Active by default -- so it is a core element of the watch's Tizen OS.

    The only reliablility issue I have experienced with my Active is that it's sleep monitoring and/or tracking isn't as reliable as I would like -- ok, it can be pretty bad at times. The Active shows that I slept for 2.4 hours, then "not asleep" for another couple or few hours adn then shows me sleeping again for a few more hours.

    So while I have spept ~8hrs the watch shows that I slept 2.4hrs + 3hrs = 5.4hrs total when it should report 8.
