On the heels of the G3 comes the Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch, which touts a downright classic aesthetic, complete with analog watch ticks and hourly chimes. Available in three models, the watch runs for 80+ hours on a single charge, and provides messages, calls, mapping, and music independently of a smartphone (by way of LTE connectivity). Throw in steadfast durability and improved functionality, and this is easily Samsung’s best smartwatch to date.
Wearable tech is big among fitness freaks, and Samsung delivers its new Galaxy Smartwatch with this much in mind. More to the point, the watch hosts a full spectrum of health-related features, including an advanced sleep tracker, and stress management tracker. Naturally, that’s joined by a variety of wellness goals, nutrition charts, and workout regimens. Take your diet a step further by employing Bixby Vision, allowing you to monitor and log every calorie.
As one might expect, the new Galaxy Watch syncronises beautifully with the broader Galaxy ecosystem. In other words, expect a seamless exchange between the watch and other brand-centric platforms like SmartThings, Samsung Health, Samsung Flow, Samsung Pay, and Bixby, which isn’t to mention peripheral platforms like Spotify and Under Armour. Accordingly, you can use the watch to control everything from the lights in your house to the TV to the thermostat to the music. It’s all just a mere touch away.
The Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch will be available in a 46mm version, and a 42mm version of either midnight black or rose gold. Users can customise both the faces and straps. Look for the smartwatch to arrive in Australia starting early October.
