Samsung has improved the battery life in the Galaxy Watch where you can get over 80 hours usage on a single charge. The LTE version will be available in over 15 countries at over 30 carriers. This model functions as a standalone device for use in messaging, calls, mapping and music. To stay on top of reminders, weather and the latest schedule, users can also start and end their day with briefings.

On the wellness side, the Galaxy Watch has a new advanced sleep tracker for REM cycles and to help users adjust sleeping habits and get the rest needed. It also comes with 21 new indoor exercises, tracking a total of 39 workouts that can be changed to match your preference. The Galaxy Watch also makes it easy to track calories and provide personalized alerts. Also, by using Bixby Vision, users can stay on track of their meals on their Galaxy device. By snapping a photo of each meal, you can instantly log nutritional information in Samsung Health and on Galaxy Watch for better calorie management.

The Galaxy Watch maintains the circular, rotating bezel with Always On Display. It also comes with more size and styles options – a Silver 46mm version and 42mm option in Midnight Black or Rose Gold. The watch produces a traditional look with analog watch ticks and hourly chimes, and a depth effect that casts shadows defining every detail on the watch face. The durability is at a certified military-level with Corning Gorilla Glass DX+ and 5 ATM rating for water resistance.

The Bluetooth version of the Galaxy Watch will be available at Samsung Experience Stores, online at Samsung.com and at major retail partners across Canada on Sept 21st, 2018. The LTE device will launch in Canada later this year. If you are planning to pre-order the Bluetooth version any time between August 24th to September 20th at Samsung.com, a Samsung Experience Store, or Best Buy Canada, you will get a bonus wireless charger duo (value of $149.99), to charge both the Galaxy Watch and your smartphone simultaneously.
