The Galaxy Watch is clearly Samsung taking everything it’s learned in smartwatches and finally putting it all together. The design is a blend of the Frontier and Classic S3 models. It’s also decided to go to two sizes for the first time, with 42mm and 46mm options.
Elsewhere, you’ve got a 1.3-inch (46mm) or 1.2-inch (42mm) AMOLED display with a resolution of 360 x 360. There’s 5 ATM water certification, NFC for contactless payments, GPS and – of course – a heart rate sensor.
This is also the debut device for Tizen 4.0, which comes with a new My Day watch face that gives you a lovely overview of your day. There are also new wellness features like stress and sleep tracking. Plus, 21 new workouts for those of you who want to track the likes of lat pulldowns.
Plus, like other Samsung smartwatches, it’s still got Spotify support, offline music support with 4GB of storage and a healthy selection of apps – though not quite to the level of Wear OS or Apple Watch. There’s also a 4G model if you want that extra hit of connectivity support.
All of this is in a package that’ll last you two to three days on a single charge. Plenty for a couple of nights of sleep tracking without having to worry. You can also push to four days if you avoid certain features, like GPS. Samsung has done everything right here, and that’s why it’s the best Samsung smartwatch you can buy.
