Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 Review

Shahriar Siam

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3's fan-most loved bezel — the turning bow on a $399 smartwatch — is just as fulfilling as it appears.

Despite the fact that squirm turning is extraordinary, life-sparing wellbeing highlights like a FDA-affirmed ECG sensor (which is currently dynamic!) and outing recognition are better. Attach SpO2 and VO2 Max readings, an immense library of watch faces and thinned down plan, and Samsung has discovered a champ in its cutting edge wearable.

Price & Availability

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 went discounted on August 6. Those keen on picking the new smartwatch will have a couple of sizes and varieties to look over.

The beginning Galaxy Watch 3 cost of $399 will get you the 41mm model in either Mystic Silver or Mystic Bronze.

The bigger, 45mm model beginnings at $429 and comes in Mystic Black or Mystic Silver. It's offered in a titanium variation too, however that will come including some hidden costs. Furthermore, on the off chance that you need your Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 with LTE so it can settle on telephone decisions and react to messages when your cell phone is out of Bluetooth extend, hope to add $50 to the base cost.


The bezel is back, child. At the point when we tried the component during our unique Samsung Galaxy Watch audit, we found the physical bezel valuable and fun. Turning the dial functioned admirably with both side fastens and offered an extraordinary option in contrast to swiping or attempting to jab at the roundabout presentation with our finger.

The bezel holds up a second time around, however feels surprisingly better on the grounds that Samsung thinned down the Galaxy Watch 3. It's 8% littler, 14% more slender and 15% lighter than the main Galaxy Watch. We're talking millimeters here, yet with regards to something you wear on your wrist, the thing that matters is perceptible.

In any case, the 1.7-ounce, 41mm Mystic Bronze model I tried looks thick contrasted with my Apple Watch 5. The compromise is that it looks more like a conventional watch than a cutting edge one. While I may jettison my Apple Watch for a decent supper or night out, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 stands its ground as a snappy embellishment.

Even better, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 accompanies real calfskin ties that coordinate the packaging's shading and contribute a more raised tasteful contrasted with the wellness centered Samsung Galaxy Watch 2. Yet, the cowhide doesn't passage well against sweat or water, so I'd trade them for sportier ones if I somehow happened to keep utilizing the Galaxy Watch 3 as my day by day driver.


Samsung's Tizen programming actually limps along Apple's watchOS, yet is a noteworthy improvement from Google's flighty Wear OS. Not exclusively are the Galaxy Watch 3's different menus profoundly adaptable and stuffed with helpful applications, yet dispatching and exchanging between them feels sharp, as well.

Because of the bezel, route is instinctive, and I depended on it alongside the double fastens to get where I needed to go. The movement signals, then again, didn't generally do it for me. At the point when I could get them to work, I felt somewhat absurd all the while.

What didn't feel senseless is the Galaxy Watch 3's T9 console, which I depended for messaging more frequently than I suspected I would. I know, composing on such a little screen sounds absurd, yet I valued the capacity to send messages in situations when I was unable to utilize converse with text. I wish the Apple Watch would supplant Scribble with an altered, small console.

Fitness & Health Features

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 can follow 40 all out exercises, and seven can be followed naturally, which means you won't generally need to choose what sort of activity you're doing already. I required this when my cheerful 85-pound dark lab would not like to stop for me to dispatch a walk following on our standard journeys around our town.

The Galaxy Watch 3's ready GPS estimated my day by day course precisely enough (it's generally 1.2 miles, depending how often the canine needs to go around and around). I had a similar encounter when I took the watch biking and running, the last of which was educated by on-request VO2 Max readings. I'm a long way from a continuance sprinter so I didn't trigger any alerts, yet I envision more committed competitors would welcome this element during preparing.

In any case, they probably won't value the calfskin ties. I absolutely realize I didn't. It felt odd getting them wet with sweat, and I didn't consider taking the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 close to a pool regardless of its 5ATM rating for water opposition.

In any case, regardless of where you are, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3's outing identification sensors will call crisis administrations for your sake when it detects you took a hard and abrupt fall. Apple Watch has had this component for a couple of years, so it's acceptable to see Samsung making up for lost time.

Battery Life

Where the new Galaxy Watch appears to miss the mark regarding the past model is battery life. Dissimilar to the 4-day endurance of the first Galaxy Watch, the Galaxy Watch 3's 340 mAh battery is evaluated for 2 days. That is reasonable for smartwatch norms (the Apple Watch 5 just gets 18 hours) and likely adds to the thinned down plan.

The Galaxy Watch 3 satisfies Samsung's battery gauges. Indeed, even with hour-long exercises and rest following in the initial two days I wore it, the watch kept going around 2 days. In any case, when I empowered the consistently in plain view setting, the battery life dropped to 24 hours in its subsequent cycle. All things considered, this is better than my Apple Watch 5.

At the point when it needs more squeeze, the Galaxy Watch 3 can be accused of its exclusive charge or through remote force share with a viable Samsung telephone. I evaluated this charging support dock from Amazon for keeping my bedside table sorted out, as well.

ECG readings and blood pressure monitoring

The Galaxy Watch 3 has a FDA-endorsed ECG screen, which means the new smartwatch will have the option to distinguish indications of atrial fibrillation simply like the Apple Watch.

While the Apple Watch's FDA-affirmed ECG sensor is old news (it appeared with the Apple Watch Series 4), Samsung has been delayed to get its variant endorsed, first acquiring leeway for the innovation on the Galaxy Watch Active 2 in South Korea.

Presently, both those smartwatches can manage ECG readings

Samsung has likewise earned leeway for its circulatory strain screen in South Korea. For the time being, the sensor will sit lethargic in The Galaxy Watch 3 until it's affirmed by the FDA. In the event that it gets the green light soon, it would be the first smartwatch from a major name tech brand with a working pulse checking framework.


Pros Cons

Slimmer design than the original

Blood pressure readings don't work in U.S.

Shorter battery life than original

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 is entering an undeniably packed wearable market. There are a lot of sharp smartwatches and brilliant wellness trackers to look over nowadays, and Samsung attempted to find some kind of harmony between the two. It brought the best wellbeing highlights of the Galaxy Watch Active 2 to a bezeled plan that rivals contributions from watch intellectual Fossil.
