Samsung Galaxy Watch has high-value appearance and strong battery life

This time along with Note9 is also released Galaxy Watch.

This is Samsung’s first generation of smartwatches under the Galaxy series, while previous generations were named after Gear, but in product design, we can still clearly see the existence of the family language.

Samsung Galaxy Watch uses a round dial design, but compared with the previous generation, the edges and corners are more distinct, and it has the feel of a mechanical watch.

There are two options for the size of the dial, 42mm (2399 yuan) and 46mm (2499 yuan): the 42mm version of the Galaxy Watch comes in two colors, midnight black and rose gold; the 46mm version has only one color of titanium silver, which is this time The evaluated version. As the large dial version, it also has a larger battery capacity, reaching 472mAh. The official claims that the total battery life can reach 168 hours.

The first feeling of getting started with Galaxy Watch is amazing. As a person who has been “baptized” by a lot of cheap wearable devices, this time, the Galaxy Watch definitely ranks in the top three in terms of texture. The circular design and the simulated dial make you even unable to tell at a glance this is an electronic dial. And as the watch rotates, the gloss on the electronic dial will also change, simulating a mechanical watch’s texture to the greatest extent.

In addition to the rotatable dial, there are two physical buttons on the watch’s right side, namely the return button and the Home button/APP button. There is a non-slip rubber design on the buttons.

There are heart rate sensors and other sensors on the back of the watch. The design on the back is also very tough. If it were not for the various applications that I opened occasionally, I would almost forget that this is a smartwatch and not a mechanical watch.

The charging base’s design is relatively simple, with a Micro USB port on the bottom of the back and an indicator light on the front. Put the watch on. It will automatically judge the direction of the watch according to the gravity accelerator. No matter what direction you put it on, it will automatically change to the 12 o’clock up display, which is very intimate.

In terms of experience, the biggest surprise that Galaxy Watch brings to me is battery life. Because I used this watch for a week after I got it, in the case of sufficient curiosity in the first half, high-intensity use of Galaxy Watch can support at least two and a half days, and after the frequency of use is reduced in the second half, it lasts for five days of daily use.

Another great thing about Galaxy Watch is that it supports 5ATM water resistance. Not to mention daily washing, you can even take it for bathing and swimming. Compared with most splash-proof wearable devices on the market, it is used in application scenarios. Much better.

Samsung Galaxy Watch supports more than 35 types of activities, and motion detection is much more accurate and convenient than other devices. Through the comprehensive collection and testing of various data such as heart rate, sleep, and step counting, a Galaxy Watch can also be worth less than half a fitness coach. By the way, it can also detect the pressure level and help relieve pressure by guiding breathing.

In addition, the many dials and small programs provided by Galaxy Watch are also the most wearable devices. From the common calendar and weather to the mainstream WeChat Alipay, I even saw the existence of flashlights and small games.

In addition, with the help of an excellent 1.3-inch display, the Galaxy Watch dial is also exceptionally rich and diverse, and the dial is of high quality and rich in functions.

Along with the new Tizen system is Bixby. Of course, as an application on the watch side, there is still a gap between its actual experience and the excellent performance on the mobile phone side, but for such a small watch, the addition of this function can be called a “dojo in a snail shell”. Since this time has been from scratch, I believe that there will be better adaptation and optimization in the future.

In terms of interaction, in addition to traditional tapping, Galaxy Watch also interacts with the dial. Just rotate the dial to easily reach notifications and other various functions. The lower right corner is the Home button and the APP button, and the upper right corner is the return button. The whole use logic is relatively clear, the learning cost is low, and it is easy to get started.

In terms of health monitoring, active reminders, real-time heart rate monitoring, and sleep monitoring are also available. Of course, Samsung has already started to provide related support for these functions. Now it is very good in terms of user experience and software maturity, so I won’t repeat them here.

Also, this generation of Galaxy Watch has newly added a daily information reminder function, which will push the information you need twice a day in the morning and evening: you can preview the weather and schedule of the day when you wake up; you can review this before going to bed One day and push the physical health data of that day. Very caring.

The NFC function is currently not supported by the Bank of China. It is reported that related functions will be updated at the end of the year, and the application scenarios of Galaxy Watch will undoubtedly be more abundant by then.

Written at the end:

Although smartwatches have been around for a long time, most of them are more like experimental concept products. But the Galaxy Watch is different. The exquisite workmanship and traditional mechanical watch design make it a level higher than similar products in terms of public acceptance, and the stronger battery life makes it more practical.
