I have bought the same few months back, waiting for ECG and BP monitor feature which is long due since it's launch in 2019. Now I heard that Samsung has enabled BP feature in Korea only and ECG and BP both will be soon available in the fall of 2020

@Pleasant BTW you have made a good decision by getting the stainless steel edition

Yes its a long over due feature they are having some issue with getting an approval from FDA or something i guess
So far Enjoying the purchase
i was lucky enough to get a Good deal yes stainless steel has a premium feel and the leather band is great will be ordering some more straps though as you have been using it already would like to know what accessories you are using with it for protection like cases or rings i saw ringke bezels looks sweet
there are few cases one was ringke other was spigen i haven't decided yet which one to go for
Spigen Looks great but doesnt give full coverage the edges where as Ringke has option to Put Bezels on Top

There is a method to install BP monitor available i installed it using the same method now i need the device to calibrate it

I have couple of stainless steel chain straps which i ordered from aliexpress before the pandemic, they are of excellent quality and I am satisfied with them, I personally like chain / metal straps. For protection I am using a simple screen protector as I don't like those rings and bulky cases which are available and using such things will kill the beauty of the watch so I am keeping it simple, BTW the watch glass itself is scratch resistant..just my opinion..

Lastly, yes there is a method of side-loading BP feature is available on XDA, but my those days are gone when I used to do such experiements, now I hardly get time for such activities :( if you try that, do let us know about the BP feature!

Yeah i can understand it kills the beauty just wanted to be extra careful what happens if it drops from my side table while charging will it survive without protection
share the images of straps you have i am thinking about getting a steel meshed one and sports one for a change and leather one is already came with it so i will have 3 different variety

Well it hardly takes 15 20mins in slide loading it that is still bit exaggerated
yeah i just calibrated with the device and its pretty close

Here are the results Quite happy with this feature

Oh nice i have ordered the mesh one will buy this one as well i was bit skeptical about this one but this picture made me think to give a try to it
btw i am going for dock stand as well i guess it will be something where watch can rest and the magnet holds it well in its place

    One more thing. If your ps+ subscription expires, can you still play the games if you renew it later? GIven that you haven't deleted them from storage
    if its the same as the regular PS+ or Gold model, the games are tied to your profile but you can't activate them if you don't have an active subscription so it should work whenever you renew

    but i dont see why it would matter when you get PS+, it seems like something tied to the PS+ service, not to when or how long you have been a member.

    Can someone confirm whether I'll be able to get the PS+ Collection games (the 18 PS4 games) on PS5 if I get a new subscription after launch or do I have to be a subscriber before launch to be eligible?
    i dont think there is enough information for anyone to say one way or the other.
