With its introduction of the Galaxy Note9, Samsung also unveiled a new smartwatch in a new line of smart wearables. No longer called Gear, the Galaxy Watch is still a logical continuation of the Gear S3.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch comes in the same 46mm size as its predecessor but has a smaller 42mm variant as well. There are three casing colors to choose from – Midnight Black, Rose Gold and Silver and Samsung will offer a large variety of bands to choose from.
Just like the Gear smartwatches, the circular bezel on the Samsung Galaxy Watch will rotate to navigate you through the Tizen interface.
The display is either 1.3-inch (46mm) or 1.2-inch (42mm) with Gorilla Glass DX+ on top. The 46mm Galaxy Watch comes with a 472mAh battery while the smaller 42mm has a built-in 270mAh unit. According to Samsung, both can give you “several days” of endurance.
The Tizen-powered Galaxy Watch will offer more than 60 thousand watch faces.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch is IP68 water resistant with an additional 5ATM pressure rating. It’s also drop resistant, complying with the vague MIL-STD-810G standard.
