The Galaxy Watch 3 is coming. Samsung will launch its new smartwatch and wireless earbuds in July ahead of the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Fold 2 launches on August 5. Now we’ve got a spec watch for Samsung’s upcoming smartwatch. The Galaxy Watch 3 sizes include 1.2-inch and 1.4-inch displays, and the watch will come in 41mm and 45mm sizes, with stainless steel and titanium variants, 8GB of internal storage, LTE and GPS connectivity, and IP68 waterproof (50m deep, 10 min) and MIL-STD-810G design. Following last year’s absences on the Galaxy Watch Active and Galaxy Watch Active 2, the physical spin border will return on the Galaxy Watch 3.
The 41mm Galaxy Watch 3 will feature a 1.2-inch display, the 45mm version will have a 1.4-inch display, and the two versions will be 45 x 46.2 x 11.1mm and 41 x 42.5 x 11.3mm respectively. Although the overall size of the Watch 3 is small, the display is 0.1 inches larger than the Galaxy Watch’s screen, so we can only assume that the rotating border won’t be as thick as it used to be. The FCC revealed that the displays will be covered by Corning Gorilla Glass DX.
The Galaxy Watch 3 has a heart rate monitor with eight pulse-reading photodiodes, supports blood pressure monitoring, and an electrocardiogram (ECG) sensor. Whether the EEA feature will be used globally at the time of introduction will only be shown by time. Recently, Samsung in South Korea received approval to enable the Galaxy Watch Active 2 Electrocardiogram feature, and we can only hope that the company will get the necessary approval sit comprehecation in other countries when the Galaxy Watch 3 is available.
The Galaxy Watch 3 has less battery capacity than the Galaxy Watch. The battery capacities of the 41mm and 45mm versions are 247mAh and 340mAh, respectively. These batteries are identical to those inside the Galaxy Watch Active 2, so battery life should not be an issue. Both versions of the Galaxy Watch 3 smartwatch have 1GB of memory and pre-install Tizen OS 5.5 out of the box.
