The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 has a familiar build and design, although there are some changes. The watch will be available in two sizes, with a metal case and a rotating bezel. It should be said about it that in the larger model it has small teeth around the perimeter. Smaller – without. The bezel itself has become more pleasant for personal feelings. Tactile sensations are difficult to explain. More elastic and informative, probably. In terms of dimensions, the models remained approximately the same as their predecessors, but the screens became a little larger: 1.2 and 1.4 inches, respectively. These are round SuperAMOLED-matrices with a resolution of 360×360.
According to Samsung, the fitness functions of the watch have been significantly improved: there are significantly more preset training options, and auto-recognition of activity has been improved. The accuracy of the heart rate monitor, sleep quality tracking and stress score has increased. The functions of measuring the level of blood oxygen saturation, pressure and, in theory, an ECG have appeared. Why in theory? Technically, there is such a possibility, but for its operation, certification in the Ministry of Health is required, which somewhat complicates this process.
The Exynos 9110 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of internal memory are responsible for the clock. You can upload music to it and use the Galaxy Watch 3 as a player. The device is running the updated TizenOS 5.5 operating system. There is Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC. Interestingly, Samsung plans to launch contactless payments with the Galaxy Watch 3, but there is no information on the timing and implementation yet. It will most likely not be Samsung Pay, but some third party local solution. The models are equipped with batteries with a capacity of 247 and 340 mA * h, respectively, how much this will last in real life – we’ll see. Of course, there is protection from dust and water, the watch can withstand up to 5 ATM.
