Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 review: The (other) smartwatch you should buy


If you own an Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 should be at the top of your smartwatch shopping list. It's expensive, but worth it.

Stylish, traditional watch looks ; Attractive, reliable software ; Brilliant rotating bezel aces the control system ; Comprehensive health-tracking features ; Solid battery life

Questionable fitness-tracking accuracy ; Slow battery charging

Galaxy Watch 3 review: The best non-Apple smartwatch


With the Galaxy Watch 3, Samsung continues to prove it can make a better smartwatch companion for Android phones than Google. Although the Watch 3 is chunkier than its similarly capable Active series, it brings improved sleep and health tracking...

Useful spinning bezel ; Good sleep tracking ; Clever activity suggestions ; Improved workout tracking

Chunky ; Expensive compared to Galaxy Watch Active 2

Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 review: time for a change


The new Galaxy Watch 3 isn't a huge leap forward for smartwatches.

Easy-to-use interface ; Rotating bezel control is a delight ; Fast enough performance ; Great display

Bixby remains the worst voice assistant ; App selection is still dire ; Fitness tracking features are hit or miss ; “Slimmer” design is still large and chunky

Samsung’s new Galaxy Watch 3 is the company’s most expensive smartwatch yet, with a stainless steel body, rotating bezel, and larger display. But it doesn’t necessarily do anything different from the less expensive Active models from Samsung.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 review


The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 brings back the rotating bezel — plus a few other tricks — right to your wrist.

Slimmer design than the original ; Physical rotating bezel is back ; FDA-approved ECG readings

Blood pressure readings don't work in U.S. ; Shorter battery life than original

But this convergence came at a cost — the Galaxy Watch 3 is more expensive than the Galaxy Watches and Wear OS Fossil options before it, and leans more towards lifestyle than fitness. I can’t say I’d replace my Apple Watch with an Android one at the...

Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 review: The best Android smartwatch


Smartwatches are almost always forced to compromise in their design in some way. After all, it's hard to cram all of the various specs and sensors that make these tiny wrist computers so functional into something you'd actually want to wear out. The...

Gorgeous classic design Satisfying rotating bezel Solid battery life EKG support is incoming Tizen is generally a great interface

App support is still lacking Very high starting price Slow, clunky charger No MST for Samsung Pay

The Galaxy Watch 3 offers stunning hardware and a variety of health-focused features, including an EKG and blood pressure sensor. It doesn't have the widest third-party app support, but you'll get good battery life, a bright display, and Samsung's...

Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 review: One of the best Apple Watch alternatives


The main aesthetic criticism of Samsung's original Galaxy Watch is its chunky design. It has big bezels and an in-your-face look that many people either love or hate. Samsung really turned things around with the Galaxy Watch 3. It's thinner and lighter...

Fantastic display and rotating bezel Thinner, lighter design Two-day battery life Advanced running metrics can be super helpful Useful sleep tracking and insights

GPS and HR sensors can be inaccurate No MST payments with Samsung Pay Big price increase over original Galaxy Watch Setup process for non-Samsung phones is a pain Third-party app support is lacking

Not many other smartwatches are as well-rounded as the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3. The hardware and software are better than ever, though Samsung still has some work to do with fitness tracking accuracy. If you're going to buy a premium smartwatch for your...

Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 Review: The premium Android smartwatch


The Galaxy Watch 3 brings back the excellent rotating bezel, offers new features and comes in a beautiful ‘Mystic Bronze.'

Features like SpO2, fall detection and stress monitoring ; The rotating bezel is back ; Sleep monitoring is helpful

Expensive ; Battery doesn't last long enough ; Installing the app is a bit tedious

Samsung’s smartwatches keep getting increasingly better without resorting to gimmicks
