samsung’s new galaxy watch is a lighter sportier and cheaper version of last year’s galaxy watch with a few key differences, the most obvious one design there is no rotating bezel on the watch a feature that had become almost symbolic of Samsung’s smartwatch instead it has a circular touchscreen with a thin metal frame that only comes in one size and core colors.
- Comfortable, lightweight design
- long lasting battery life
- Good fitness-tracking features
- voice assistant is very poor
- difficult to use with non-Samsung phones
- Fewer third-party apps than other smartwatches
- Rotating bezel
Rotating bezel feature
The rotating bezel feature on the previous galaxy watch and previous skier watches before it and both in terms of the functionality and in terms of the look. we can say that the watch wasn’t all that different I was already used to doing a lot of the same gestures it does keep that some circular watch face design so its very familiar if you’ve ever had a galaxy watch or a gear watch but just scrolling like when you have a lot of options the scrolling feature of the watch bezel is something I did miss on this we can say that the watch is excellent for work out and for swimming.
The watch price at just $200 and it’s much cheaper than the apple watch series 4.
