Samsung has also announced Galaxy Watch3 alongwith other products at virtual Unpacked event. The Galaxy Watch3 is built with premium materials like stainless steel and high-quality leather — and for the first time, it will also be available in a titanium model that’s both durable and elegant. It also features the popular rotating bezel from previous watch models. With just a turn of the bezel, you can easily toggle between widgets, open apps and scroll through notifications. Compared to the original Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Watch3 is 14% thinner, 8% smaller and 15% lighter. On the watch, you can customize your watch face from over 80,000 watch faces in the Galaxy Store, or design your own.
The Galaxy Watch3 comes with various new health related features such as the Blood oxygen (SpO2) feature that will soon measure and track oxygen saturation over time, for fitness and wellness purposes. Galaxy Watch3 will also be home to the new Samsung Health Monitor app once launched, which will include blood pressure (BP) monitoring and electrocardiogram (ECG) readings in markets where these features have been authorized. To ensure that help is never too far away in the event of a fall, Galaxy Watch3 comes with a new feature that detects falls, which identifies a potential fall and can send an SOS notification to your chosen contacts.
Besides above, running analysis will also be able to offer when available, real-time feedback during your runs, as well as six-factor post-workout reports, which help improve form, boost performance, and reduce injury. To track your cardio progress as you go, you will soon be able to easily access VO2 max readings, which offer insight into your oxygen uptake.
In addition, you can set automatic reply options for both messages and images, and easily view emoticons and photos directly from your wrist. You can also play your favorite music from your phone with the rotating bezel; and use simple hand gestures9 like clenching and unclenching your fist to receive a call, or rotating your wrist to mute alarms or incoming calls. For those who spend extended periods away from their phone, LTE models are also available, allowing you to take calls and messages, stream your favorite playlists, and access your favorite apps on-the-go.
Galaxy Watch3 is available in 41mm and 45mm, both available in LTE and Bluetooth variants. Galaxy Watch 41mm variant will be available in Mystic Bronze and Mystic Silver, while the Galaxy Watch 45mm variant will be available in Mystic Silver and Mystic Black. The 41mm and 45mm (LTE and Bluetooth) models starts at $399.99. The Galaxy Watch Titanium variant will be available later this year.
