The Galaxy Watch 6 and its sibling, the Watch 6 Classic, are designed to compete with the best in the market, including the Apple Watch. They come with a plethora of features focused on health, fitness, and overall user experience.
The first thing that catches your eye is the design. Both watches maintain their classic shape but have been refined to accommodate larger displays without a significant increase in size. Samsung claims that the Galaxy Watch 6 and Watch 6 Classic boast a 20% larger panel compared to their predecessors. This means more room for your apps, notifications, and fitness data, all in vibrant colors and sharp details.
The Galaxy Watch 6 and Watch 6 Classic aren’t just about looks; they’re packed with features that cater to your health and fitness needs. They come with various training modes, supported by a range of sensors, including a heart rate monitor, barometer, and temperature sensor. The watches also offer a more precise sleep analysis, providing insights into your sleep regularity and quality.
But the innovation doesn’t stop there. Samsung has introduced a new feature called ‘Body Composition’ that measures data like skeletal muscle, basal metabolic rate, body water, and more. This feature, combined with a personalized heart rate frequency function, allows you to tailor your workouts based on your capabilities.
As for the battery life, both watches promise up to 40 hours of usage, or 30 hours with the Always-On Display function activated. This means you can go about your day (and night) without worrying about your watch running out of juice.
The Galaxy Watch 6 is available in Graphite and Silver for the 44mm variant, and Graphite and Gold for the 40mm version. The Classic model is available in Black and Silver across all sizes. Both models offer Bluetooth or Bluetooth + LTE versions.
The Galaxy Watch 6 and Watch 6 Classic are available for pre-order from June 26 and will officially hit the shelves on August 11. The Galaxy Watch 6 starts at $299 for the 40 mm Bluetooth version, while the Watch 6 Classic starts at $399 for the 43 mm Bluetooth version.
