Samsung has introduced a new Galaxy Watch that now comes with long-lasting battery life, LTE connectivity, wellness capabilities and helps you to monitor sleep, in addition to offering a more robust line up of style options including three new watch faces in Silver, Midnight Black and Rose Gold, and new customisable watch band colours.
The Galaxy Watch is designed to automatically detect high levels of stress and offers breathing exercises to help keep users centered and focused. A new advanced sleep tracker monitors all levels of sleep, including REM cycles, to help users adjust sleeping habits and get the rest they need to take on their day.
“The new Galaxy Watch was designed for all lifestyles to help meet consumer needs, such as more efficient battery life to stay connected longer, and better wellness tracking to help users maintain their goals – we are delivering them with connected experiences, all at the touch of a wrist,” said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT and Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics.
The Galaxy Watch in 46mm comes with 1.3-inch (33mm), circular Super AMOLED (360 x 360) Full Colour Always On Display with Corning Gorilla DX+ and the 42mm comes with 1.2-inch (30mm), circular Super AMOLED (360 x 360) Full Colour Always On Display with Corning Gorilla DX+.
Users can customise the Galaxy Watch even more with a selection of watch faces and straps including options from Braloba, a manufacturer of high quality watch straps. And for the first time, Galaxy Watch features analog watch ticks and hourly chimes, and a depth effect that casts shadows defining every detail on the watch face for a traditional look and feel.
Further, the Galaxy Watch brings users all the benefits from the Galaxy ecosystem creating a seamless experience with SmartThings, Samsung Health, Samsung Flow, Samsung Knox, Samsung Pay6, Bixby and with partnerships like Spotify and Under Armour.
Consumers can easily access and control devices on Galaxy Watch with SmartThings – all at the touch of a wrist – from turning on the lights and TV in the morning to adjusting the temperature before bed.
With sleep and stress under control, Galaxy Watch also helps users achieve other health and wellness goals, including fitness. Galaxy Watch adds 21 new indoor exercises, tracking a total of 39 workouts that allow consumers to customise and change up their routines.
