Galaxy Watch: Here’s Everything We Know About It
Samsung boasts of two major features on the Galaxy Watch: battery life (Samsung says it can get up to four days, depending on the watch size), and a rotating bezel, which allows you to control the watch without always needed to use the touchscreen display.
The Galaxy Watch is a fitness-focused smartwatch with 39 different exercises built in. It will be able to automatically detect six of the most common workouts, and will also have sleep tracking. The watch is waterproof and can be worn swimming as well. The Galaxy Watch which runs Tizen OS, Samsung’s smartwatch operating system will be able to charge wirelessly on Samsung’s new Duo wireless charging pad, which can charge a smartphone and the watch at the same time. A version of the Galaxy Watch will also have LTE connectivity, which means you can make calls or listen to music without being tethered to your smartphone. The Galaxy Watch has an AMOLED display and “military-grade durability.” It comes in three colors – silver, black, and rose gold – and two sizes: 42 mm and 46 mm. The 42 mm watch will cost $330, while the 46 mm watch will cost $350.
Both watches will be available on Amazon, Best Buy, and Samsung.com starting on August 24. However, the LTE-enabled watch won’t be available until later this year.
