Features of electronic giant’s first smartwatch revealed — Samsung Galaxy Watch

If these mega-featured smartphones are overwhelming or unnecessary for you - you might be more interested in the iconic Nokia 8110 banana phone, available to pre-order today at Carphone Warehouse, EE, O2, Vodafone and other key retailers and e-tailers for a RRP of £69... Available in 42mm and 46mm sizes, it has a 360×360 AMOLED display that's scratch resistant and is water-resistant up to 5ATM. These prices are for the Bluetooth variants of these sizes, with LTE / 4G variants costing more and coming a little later in the year.

People with the Galaxy Note9 will also be able to get the game that way, but the phone doesn't arrive until August 24. In the UK EE will be supporting the Samsung Galaxy Watch, and will be the place to purchase the 4G version of the smartwatch. That 4,000mAh battery is a huge upgrade on what was there before (and validated by an independent body as very unlikely to catch on fire this time). Galaxy Watch helps users accomplish more with new stress and sleep monitoring capabilities. Going back years, I've predicted the consolidation of Samsung's smartphone lineup as only making sense with the S and the Note getting more and more similar with each passing generation.

Colour-wise there's Oceaon Blue, Lavender Purple, Black, and Copper. If you need even more space for multitasking prowess, there will also be a 512GB storage/8GB RAM option.

Samsung is pushing this watch's health features, which go beyond simple activity-tracking (though it does that, too).

Samsung Galaxy Watch Will Be the First Smartwatch to Come With Gorilla Glass DX+
There is more excitement over the new iPhone models than for the Galaxy Note 9

As for the camera we're getting the same horizontal dual camera layout as the Note 9, albeit with a fingerprint scanner below the lenses. Tizen works on both Android and iOS, so users will not be limited by the operating system of their smartphone. Again, I didn't have chance to check the limits of functionality and compatibility with iOS on the hands-on session, so again it will be worth holding off for T3's full Galaxy Watch review. And since Samsung hasn't seen fit to fill Barclays Center with treadmills, we obviously couldn't take the Watch's exercise recognition features for a test. You know, just to be thorough. It comes with Bixby and smartthings hub built-in for home automation.

The Galaxy Watch also comes with the trademark circular, rotating bezel while embracing the digital look with Always On Display, in addition to improved usability. Or simply watching below.

"We expect the Note 9 to sell more than its previous model and we will mobilise all our sales and marketing resources to ensure the successful launch", KyeongTae Lee, Samsung's vice-president of mobile communication, told investors on the company's earnings conference call last week.
