Samsung Galaxy Watch: Full specifications
If you’ve seen or owned the previous generation Samsung Gear S3 Frontier, the latest Samsung Galaxy Watch will look more or less familiar to you. Samsung decided to stay with the tried and tested design language which is not a bad thing by any means.
Talking about the size of the watch, the Samsung Galaxy Watch comes in two size variants – 42mm and 46mm. There are three color variants available at present – Black, Silver and Rose Gold. The Rose Gold variant, however, is only available in the smaller 42mm size which is Samsung’s take on making the device feasible for the female audience out there.
The interface and the gestures are pretty familiar – we get a rotating bezel which can be used to access the watch menu and perform a lot of useful actions. On the right side (provided you wear the watch on your left hand), there are two buttons (more tactile than the previous generation watches by Samsung), one of which would take you back to the home screen while the other can be configured as per your needs – you can set it to open a specific app of your own choosing or you can set it to start a workout routine or start the GPS (yes, there is GPS) if you are going jogging or something.
Moving on to the display, the Samsung Galaxy Watch has a fully circular 1.3-inch AMOLED display (1.2-inch for the 42mm variant) giving out a resolution of 360×360 pixels and a pixel density of 390ppi.
