What Is the Newest Samsung Galaxy Watch?

Samsung has just released its most advanced smartwatch yet: the Galaxy Watch3. It’s a premium device that works with Samsung Galaxy phones, iPhones, and most Android phones.

The Galaxy Watch3 is a sophisticated device that helps you monitor your health by taking electrocardiogram readings, blood pressure, pulse rates, and blood oxygen. It monitors the quality of your sleep and serves as a fitness tracker and can even detect if you’ve fallen. The Samsung Galaxy store offers apps you can download to your Watch3. They’re selectable by rotating the bezel, which gives a satisfying “click” as it rotates to launch each app. With a battery life that ranges from three to five days depending on the model, you get a lot from a device that weighs less than two ounces and lives on your wrist!

Is Samsung Galaxy Watch Worth Buying?

If you’re looking for a smartwatch that works seamlessly with your Galaxy, Android, or iPhone, then the Watch3 may be your best choice. You can monitor your workouts, your wellness, or your stress levels and sleep efficiency. There are over 50,000 watch faces to choose from – even faces that match your stylish clothing – Watch3 is perfection. It’s one of the most powerful, versatile, and advanced wearable devices anywhere in today’s market.

What are the Best Apps for Galaxy Watch3?

No matter what functionality you want from your Galaxy Watch3, you’ll likely discover that “there’s an app for that.” Samsung carries more than 60,000 apps and watch faces. News, music, fitness, a remote controller for PowerPoint presentations, free radio from around the world, find my car – all of these apps (and more) are available through the Samsung store.

  • Can I Talk on My Galaxy Watch?

    Sure. The Watch3 has both a microphone and a speaker. It connects to your phone via Bluetooth so you can make calls and speak through your watch. That’s super convenient when your phone is in your purse, the back pocket of your skinny jeans, or when you simply don’t want to reach for it. You can also record voice memos using a suitable app and listen to music through Bluetooth earbuds or headphones.

    Can I Leave My Phone at Home with Galaxy Watch?

    Your phone needs to be within Bluetooth range of your Watch3 because that’s how it communicates with your phone. Sorry, but this isn’t Batman’s wrist telecommunicator!

    Does the Galaxy Watch Have a Camera?

    In a fit of extraordinary engineering, engineers have designed the Samsung Watch3 to take pictures using the camera(s) in your phone. The YouTube video above demonstrates this nicely. Again, your phone needs to be within Bluetooth range.

    What Is the Best Way to Protect My Galaxy Watch?

    Just like any other wearable electronic product, accidents can happen in an instant. Banging your watch against an obstacle or dropping it on a hard surface can damage or ruin the watch and any of its delicate sensors.
    While Samsung’s warranty provides some protection, it’s limited. Upsie.com specializes in service contracts, sometimes called extended warranty programs. We take great pride in delivering the kind of protection that costs a small fraction of what Samsung, the big-box retailers, and others charge. And unlike their offerings, Upsie contracts do cover the most common accidents like drops and spills. Further, Upsie uses the same national insurance carriers the big box stores use, but we don’t apply the big markup fees they do.

    What Is Covered Under an Upsie Galaxy Watch Extended Warranty?

    Let’s take a look. Upsie protects your smartwatch from cracks, liquid damage, battery failure, power failure, touch screen failure, headphone jack failure, and Bluetooth failure. Get the details here. Plus, you can buy your service contract any time within 60 days of purchasing your watch. Later, if you decide to gift your watch to a friend, the Upsie coverage can be transferred to the new owner.

    What if my Watch Can’t Be Repaired?

    More good news. If the cost of repair is not feasible, Upsie will replace your Watch.

    Who Can I Contact If I Have More Questions?

    Contact Upsie at 1-877-844-7745 and speak to one a consultant without having to wade through annoying voice menus. Real people answer the phones daily from 9AM to 4PM CST. You can also send them an email or contact them via Facebook or Twitter.
