The new Samsung Galaxy Watch with battery life of up to 80 hours, expanded LTE connectivity and new stress and sleep monitoring capabilities, is encompassed in a timeless and personalised design. There will be a cellular model and Bluetooth model, three watch faces and customisable watch band colours.
Galaxy Watch carries the legacy of Samsung smartwatches with its trademark circular, rotating bezel and digital look with the Always On display. For the first time, the Galaxy Watch also features analog watch ticks and hourly chimes. Corning Gorilla Glass DX+ and 5 ATM water resistance rating ensure long-lasting durability.
Users can access and control devices on the Galaxy Watch with SmartThings app integration and control music and multimedia with Spotify.
The new stress management tracker automatically detects high levels of stress and offers breathing exercises, while the new sleep tracker monitors all levels of sleep including REM cycles. Galaxy Watch adds 21 new indoor exercises, tracking a total of 39 workouts to customise fitness routines with calorie tracking and personalised alerts.
Samsung Australia vice president of mobile, Garry McGregor said the Galaxy Watch is a timepiece that delivers on both style and functionality.
“The network connectivity of the cellular Galaxy Watch will give people the freedom to leave both their phone and wallet at home while staying connected through voice and data, along with the benefits of Samsung Pay.
“The cellular model provides a true e-SIM experience so customers can also use their Galaxy Watch when roaming overseas, which we believe sets our smartwatch apart from our competitors.”
The Galaxy Watch will be available in Midnight Black, Silver and Rose Gold, in two watch face sizes (46mm and 42mm). The cellular model will be priced from RRP $649 and the Bluetooth model from RRP $549. It will be available to purchase in Australia from October 4, 2018 from select operator and retail partners, as well as Samsung experience stores and online.
