Launched in August last year, the Galaxy Watch 3 is a premium smartwatch from the South Korean electronics giant. It features a 1.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a circular dial and a rotating bezel on the outside. It also offers 24/7 heart-rate tracking, a SpO2 sensor for blood oxygen monitoring, support for Samsung Pay, and 5ATM + IP68 water and dust protection.
Since its launch, Samsung has steadily added to the feature set and capabilities of the Galaxy Watch 3. Earlier this year, Samsung finally enabled support for ECG and blood pressure monitoring on the smartwatch in 31 countries, allowing users to analyze their heart activity and keep tabs on their blood pressure levels on the go. A new update that arrived a month later added even more features and improvements, including new home workout fitness programs, SmartThings Find support to help you locate your lost Galaxy Watch 3, the Hand Wash app, and more.
In the most recent update that rolled out just last month, the watch gained support for a new Sleep Score feature that ranks your sleep quality on a scale of 1 to 100 and the ability to invite friends for walking challenges.
