Performance & Features
The crystal clear sAMOLED screen helps to deliver exceptional battery life, as well as an easy to view screen in all lighting conditions. sAMOLED allows for a low-power "Always-On" screen mode, just like Samsung's high-end Galaxy phones. With this, you don't have to push a button or raise your wrist a certain way to activate the screen display.
The bezel also fully rotates to give you fine control navigating menus, changing settings or as an interactive media controller on the go.
Samsung's new watch is fully compatible with Spotify and other audio apps. Add the Spotify app to your Galaxy Watch, sign in, and you can have access to all your favourite playlists and artists. Combine with wireless headphones for an effortless audio experience.
A built-in GPS can track your location. This is also coupled to an altimeter and barometer. All the data from these sensors can be displayed instantly on screen and synchronised to compatible third-party apps such as RunKeeper.
NFC contactless payments are supported too. Samsung Pay is installed on the Watch, so if your bank supports the service you can make instant payments at participating stores/terminals.
Galaxy Watch charges wirelessly. A simple dock is included with every Watch, and you can buy additional single or double docks to charge both your Galaxy phone & Watch together.
Finally, the Galaxy Watch can also control other products in your home. If you have a Samsung SmartThings network, Galaxy Watch can communicate with your connected appliances.
Health & Fitness
Developing personal health, fitness and wellbeing is an important part of many wearable devices. Galaxy Watch has a fully functional app suite installed to help you set goals, track performance and generally look after yourself!
The training section can track up to 40 individual exercises, working out calorie burn and tracking performance as you move through a workout regime. Your heart rate can also be monitored, alongside GPS location data for outdoor pursuits and information about sleep time & quality. All this data can be synchronised seamlessly with Samsung Health across a variety of devices.
When you wake up in the morning and put on your Galaxy Watch, you can be treated to a run-down of the day's events. This can include calendar appointments, birthdays, weather reports, breaking news headlines or any information you'd like to know first thing.
During the day notifications can be provided to deliver reminders (your next appointment is in half an hour and you're still a mile away!), as well as standard notifications for messages, calls and social media apps.
A short twist of the Watch bezel will take you to the "My Day" face. From here you can view an intuitive interface that displays a summary of your schedule for the next 10 hours.
Hundreds of major organisations and popular are available through the Gear store for Samsung Watch. Spotify, Uber, Nest, Line, MyFitnessPal, Pocket... Search the storefront to add extra features to your Galaxy Watch.
Any app provided by these top developers and available through the Gear store will have been specifically designed for the Watch. So the interface should perfectly fit the circular screen and allow for interactions with the rotating bezel.

- Head SAR: Limit is also applicable for the front of face SAR
During use, the actual SAR values for this device are usually well below the values stated above. This is because, for purposes of system efficiency and to minimize interference on the network, the operating power of your mobile device is automatically decreased when full power is not needed for the call. The lower the power output of the device, the lower its SAR value. Front of Face SAR testing has been carried out at a separation distance of 1.0 cm. To meet RF exposure guidelines during Front of Face operation, the device should be positioned at least this distance away from your Face.
