We are rapidly approaching the time of the year when companies start rampant hype trains before they launch their next products in the following weeks and months.
Two high-profile launches took place last week when Samsung finally revealed to the world the new Samsung Note 9 and the Samsung Galaxy Watch. While the phablet is beautiful we fell in love with the brand new watch.
The new Samsung Galaxy Watch features a high-power battery, LTE energy-saving connectivity, some much-needed wellness capabilities and masterful design. It will be available in Midnight Black, Silver and the longtime favorite Rose Gold. Two watch faces, of 42 and 46 mm will also be available.
Here is a more detailed list of the specs available:
Engineers have worked hard to create an improved battery that can last up to plus 80 hours, which removes the need for daily charging (and the chance that you may forget to charge it daily too)
The improved LTE connectivity guarantees excellent coverage across more than 30 carriers around the world, and a great experience when you are using messaging calls, maps and music across your devices
A new stress management tracker allows you to keep it cool, suggesting relaxing meditation exercises if it detects high levels of stress. An advanced sleep tracker detects all the stages of sleeping (REM included) so you can get the quality sleep you deserve.
The watch seamlessly integrates the best features of the Galaxy ecosystem such as SmartThings, Samsung Knox, Health and Pay among others, as well as services from Spotify and Under Armour. Samsung Pay has already been considered the must-have fashion accessory of 2018 in Australia.
Both the cellular models (which will use an e-SIM) and the Bluetooth models will be available on retail and select operators from October 4. The cellular model will start at $649 and the Bluetooth model at $549.
