Samsung Galaxy Watch review: the best smartwatch for Android users?


The updates to the Gear Sport are incremental, but it's still the best smartwatch for Android users

Battery life ; Software ; Rotating bezel ; Screen

Feels like a piece of technology ; Bixby is useless ; Charge time ; No killer reason to buy ; 3rd party app support

Samsung Galaxy Watch review


A bold new name with a few new features

Impressive four-day battery life ; Great core smartwatch software ; Rotating bezel cycles through UI ; Looks like a real wrist watch

Proprietary wireless charger ; Bixby proven to be terrible again ; No Google Maps, WhatsApp, FB Messenger

The Galaxy Watch is Samsung's most refined smartwatch due to its helpful fitness tracking and four-day battery life – if you opt for the larger 46mm size that we liked and recommend. All of this is packaged inside a sophisticated-looking circular...

Samsung Galaxy Watch review: Tantalized by Tizen


The 2018 Samsung smart and sports watch comes with Tizen OS and works with Android and iOS devices. It's got a great battery life, but not many apps.

Attractive design ; Solid stainless steel case ; Rotating bezel is brilliant ; Tizen OS's user interface is user friendly ; Great battery life

Tizen OS lacking in apps ; Software looks/feels the same as it has for some time ; Notifications load slowly ; 42mm limited battery

The Samsung Galaxy Watch continues the tradition set by its predecessors: it's a well-made, easy to use, durable and attractive smartwatch. Tizen has its lures, but is app limited, however, which is the watch's main shortcoming.

Samsung improves on its older wearables by adding everything it can to the Galaxy Watch. Available for the first time in two sizes, here's our full review.

Samsung Galaxy Watch review


A bold new name and improved features makes this the best smartwatch for Android fans

Great design and bright screen ; Rotating bezel is lovely ; Slick Tizen OS ; Good for loads of different sports tracking

Works best with a Samsung phone ; Bixby could be better ; Needs more app support ; 46mm might be big for some people

The Samsung Galaxy Watch is one of the best smartwatches around with lots of battery life for such a smart device, a fantastic screen and UI, as well as heaps of style. It works fine with iOS but is the brightest star with Samsung smartphones.

Samsung Galaxy Watch review: Safe but satisfying


Despite the change in branding, Samsung's latest smartwatch doesn't stray too far from the company's existing Gear formula. Great screen? Check. A rotating bezel to navigate through menus and Tizen apps? You bet. Workout tracking? You get where we're...

Handsome water-resistant design Great battery life Excellent OLED screen Mostly accurate sleep tracking

Bixby is a lousy assistant ; Workout tracking can be finicky ; S Health companion app needs work

Samsung Galaxy Watch review: A worthy Apple Watch alternative


While Samsung's Galaxy Watch may not be a huge leap over its Gear predecessors, it's a great-looking smartwatch with enhanced features and a better user experience.

Samsung's Galaxy Watch has an arguably superior design to Apple's Watch Series 4. Battery life is good, it's fully waterproof and you can get hundreds of watch faces for it. Samsung has improved its software and enhanced its fitness tracking. Spotify...

The Bixby voice-assistant could be better. Samsung has quashed some bugs but not all. To achieve Samsung's battery life numbers, you have to institute battery-saving measures.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch is a great looking smartwatch that beats the Apple Watch on battery life and its wide variety of custom watch faces.

Samsung Galaxy Watch


The attractive Samsung Galaxy Watch has better battery life and is easier to use than most smartwatches, but its fitness tracking features aren't up to par.

Lasts up to five days on a single charge. Crisp AMOLED screen. Rotating bezel. Accurate heart rate monitor. Resistant to dust and water.

Expensive. 46mm version is chunky. Fitness tracking accuracy not up to par in testing.

Bottom Line: The attractive Samsung Galaxy Watch has better battery life and is easier to use than most smartwatches, but its fitness tracking features aren't up to par.
