A microphone and speaker is built in for phone conversations and voice-to-text messaging, along with notifications. You can make use of Samsung Pay through the watch.\r\n\r\nThe Galaxy uses most, if not all of the features found in the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active. It has heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, and stress monitoring. It\u2019ll last a solid 3 to 4 days, a much better battery than the Apple Watch Series 4.\r\n\r\nArguably its best feature is its water-resistant rating of 5ATM. This means it can withstand water pressure down to 50 meters deep, though only for a short amount of time\u2014more than the Gear S2. However, it\u2019s one of the few smartwatches that can be worn while swimming, unlike the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier.\r\nDesign\r\nThe Samsung Galaxy Watch has a very sophisticated, but traditional design. Just looking at it quickly belies the fact that it\u2019s a smartwatch. It comes in three variations: rose gold, midnight black, and stainless steel silver. Not quite as many options as the Apple Watch Series 4, but plenty. The watch comes with a rotating bezel around a 1.3-inch display, the largest of two watch faces.\r\nValue\r\nFrom its fitness tracking, to its ability to withstand swimming, to its calling and texting functions, the Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch has everything you need in a smartwatch. There\u2019s no doubt about it: the smartwatch has great value.\r\n\r\nWith that said, the smartwatch is a bit on the expensive side. This probably shouldn\u2019t be your first smartwatch, but rather an upgrade once you\u2019ve familiarized yourself with smartwatches. In fact, the Letscom Fitness Tracker Smartwatch is perfect for first-time smartwatch users.\r\nSamsung Galaxy Smartwatch Review Wrap Up\r\nThe Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch tackles the three biggest needs. It isn\u2019t locked to just Android users; iOS users can make use of its functions, too. You can respond to messages and calls.
