A new generation of smart watches from Samsung users have been waiting for two years. Gear S3 was introduced in August 2016, and last year we showed only their Sport version. Now we face a brand new smart watch, which is now called Galaxy Watch.
The appearance of smart watches resembles the model Gear S3 Frontier. The gadget is now available in two sizes: 46 mm and 42 mm, so buyers can choose the most comfortable option. In addition, a smaller version which is designed more for girls, available in pink-gold color. 46-mm model is available only in silver-black.
Despite the fact that the size of the Galaxy Watch are almost the same as of its predecessors, they can now boast increased battery life. The company promises that the watch will be able to work up to 7 days on a single charge. The developers were able to achieve such a figure is largely due to the use of energy efficient Exynos chipset 9110.
Galaxy Watch equipped with NFC, so you can use them to pay for goods using a Samsung Pay. However, Samsung decided to equip the watch MST-chip as previous generations.
From interesting features I note that the watch now can simulate the sound of the second hand. That is, if you hold the device near your ear, you will hear a real “ticking”. Also, thanks to the integrated microphone, the watch can be used as a headset for conversation. And, of course, the Galaxy Watch is perfect for sports. Users have access to about forty different exercises, so everyone can choose for themselves the best training program.
As before, smart watch detachable straps, so users will be able to choose any options. Another worth mentioning about moisture protection: Samsung says about the rating and IP68 compliance standard MIL-STD-810G.
As for prices, third-party sources say about 330 dollars for the smaller version and $ 350 for larger ones. Of course, it is in the US.
