Samsung Galaxy Watch3 is the latest model launched by the South Korean manufacturer in 2020 and has the most advanced health monitoring system available on a smart watch. Samsung Galaxy Watch3 combines the elements of a smartphone with high technology in the field of health in one premium device. The most advanced Galaxy watch to date, the Galaxy Watch3 helps you effortlessly manage your life and health, giving you control over your well-being.
The Galaxy Watch3 is a smartwatch that can analyse your exercise pattern, manage your health and allows you to use a variety of convenient apps for making phone calls and playing music. You can easily browse the various features by rotating the bezel or launch a feature by simply tapping the screen and also change the watch face to match your taste. Connect your Galaxy Watch3 to your mobile device, or use it by itself without connecting to a mobile device.
The Galaxy Watch3, available in two sizes, 41 mm and 45 mm in diameter, is the only smartwatch with a precision rotating frame for navigating its menu. The watch is available in premium shades of Mystic Black, Mystic Silver and Mystic Bronze (these can vary depending on the country or region). With a fine rotating frame, it's easier to see and focus on what matters, with an even larger screen. Galaxy Watch3 is thinner, smaller and about 15% lighter than the 46mm Galaxy Watch, with a sophisticated look, ideal for the wrist due to its delicate frame.
Natural leather strap. The Galaxy Watch3 design is enriched with a high quality genuine leather strap. This gives it a natural look, and when you turn it over, you see hardened skin that protects against discoloration. The watch face completes the iconic Galaxy Watch3 look with the largest number of watch faces you can choose from, all matching its elegant structure. Make your own creation from over 40 variants and see the useful information you need at a glance, while easily accessing your favorite applications.
Watch Faces variants to choose
Blood oxygen level. The Galaxy Watch3 uses red LEDs and infrared rays to assess blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) or the amount of oxygen in the bloodstream. Because this oxygen saturation is directly related to physical performance, you can use the Galaxy Watch 3 to raise your training level.
SpO2 is defined as peripheral capillary oxygen saturation. Normal levels in humans are around 95-100%. Factors such as vigorous sports training, the amount of oxygen in the air, your altitude and various health problems can lead to smaller measurements. Galaxy Watch3 can make an emergency call and send a message if you suffer a serious fall and do not appear to be moving.
Sleep monitoring. Galaxy Watch3 records your REM cycles, deep sleep and total sleep time to assess and help improve the quality of your rest. Samsung has partnered with the National Sleep Foundation to include educational content and sleep tips right on your device to help you understand and improve your sleep. The fitness level monitoring function can be used independently, but the data stored in the watch can only be partially displayed after a certain period of time. It is recommended to pair with a smartphone to be able to store all the data.
Fitness at home. Equipped with over 120 home training programs to choose from, Galaxy Watch3 helps you move your body when it's convenient for you. Pick something from your phone and stream it to your TV - while you do sports, it will show you your heart rate in real time. Use the Ridge Sport Band for even more accurate statistics. The feature requires the Samsung SmartThings app and Bluetooth connection and detailed results are only available on the paired smartphone.
With the new Galaxy Watch3 you can manage calls, messages and multimedia files very easily, even while running. This requires Wi-Fi / LTE connection on Galaxy Watch3 and pairing with smartphone. Add a little context with smart reply and stay connected with other people even on the go, without having to use your hands to respond. Galaxy Watch3's smart reply feature analyzes the text messages and photos you receive and gives you suggested answers, with various categories that include food, holidays, selfies, and more.
Find your phone and view photos from your phone on your watch, or switch between devices to control music and check reminders. Get out of the house for new experiences without taking the weight of your phone with you. You can still make calls, play music and check your steps, all directly from your watch. Disconnect from the phone, staying connected to life.
