Samsung Galaxy Watch review: Gear S4 in disguise | Trusted Reviews

 

Samsung Galaxy Watch review: price, features release date and impressions for Samsung's latest wearable which isn't the Gear S4.

Smart design ; Rotating bezel is a great interaction method ; Great array of fitness sensors ; Bright and sharp display ; Offline Spotify support

Lack of apps ; Bixby is a poor assistant ; Limited Samsung Pay support

Samsung's best smartwatch to date, offering a good balance of sports and smartwatch functionality.

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: 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 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

 

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: The 4G Samsung Galaxy Watch is now available

 

The 4G Galaxy Watch is sold exclusively on EE for £20 a month

Superb battery life ; Great display ; Good price

Bulky ; Few new features

The truth is, you might be just as happy with the Gear S3 or Gear Sport, both of which are now available for less.

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

Chris is Engadget's senior mobile editor and moonlights as a professional moment ruiner. His early years were spent taking apart Sega consoles and writing awful fan fiction. That passion for electronics and words would eventually lead him to covering...
