In the Unpacked event, Samsung finally revealed its new successor to the Galaxy Watch 5. The Galaxy Watch 6 series has more features to discuss than the previous one in all aspects. It has brought back a physical rotating bezel with the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic and minimized the bezel. In the same 43mm & 47mm cases, it offers a larger screen than before. The regular model also comes with 40mm & 44mm cases, but now they offer 1.3-inch and 1.5-inch displays, which are slightly bigger than predecessors.
There are changes to mention on both watches. The display offers 2000 nits of brightness with always-on display support and some fresh watch faces. The processor uses Exynos W930 with 19% improvement with the support of 2GB RAM. It impacts battery life even though it has packed with a bigger battery.
The skin temperature function has finally been fully activated in the Wear OS 4 version. The One UI Watch 5 gives it new features and services that may also come to older models. The sleep tracking insight, improved health tracking, BP, fall detection, body composition, and ECG are plus points of the watch.
With Google services, it has direct access to install all the popular apps from the Play Store. Recently, WhatsApp Messenger has been customized for smartwatches, and Galaxy Watch 6 & Watch 6 Classic can take full advantage of it. The Camera Controller app has gained some more settings to control the phone camera.
The Samsung watches carry MIL-STD-810H grade in toughness, and they are IP68 water resistant. Both have LTE and Wi-Fi-only options and come in different sizes. The pre-orders have started in some major countries including the US, UK, South Korea, and Germany. Samsung will announce its launch date tomorrow in India.
