In Smart Watch Spotlight we take a look at the latest and greatest in smart watch and fitness tracker tech at JB.
What it does: This stunning looking watch combines the classic look of an elegant timepiece with all the depth and functionality that you’d expect from a premium smartwatch. Available in both 41mm and 45mm, Galaxy Watch 3 features a touch AMOLED screen, a sleek rotating bezel for app navigation, and scratchproof Gorilla Glass for whatever workout you throw at it.
The suite of health features is almost mind-boggling. Along with heartbeat monitoring, the Watch 3 tracks stress, heart health, blood oxygen levels and reviews sleep performance. For runners, real-time advanced data provides analysis on foot contact time, asymmetry, flight time, and helps reduce injury. The smartwatch can track 40 different types of exercise and, for the ultimate training regime, 120 videos can be accessed through the Samsung Health app on a Galaxy smartphone. Own a Samsung smart TV? Throw the Galaxy Buds Live into your ears and stream the workout through the DeX app directly onto the big screen – a good example of deeper integration within the Samsung ecosystem. With the LTE version, you can leave your phone at home and stream music, answer notifications and make calls.
Is it for me? If you want a fantastic looking smartwatch packed full of health and fitness tracking features, you’ve found it. Compatible with iOS and Android.
