Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 Overview
Keeping the quick history check aside, the Galaxy Watch 3 will be available in 41mm and 45mm options. With it, we witness the return of the rotating bezel which was one of the many reasons that set the company’s Watch series unique. The size of the bezel is reduced as well.

Moreover, the screen is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass DX. Compared to other GG standards, it offers better visibility through reduced surface reflection and is tougher against scratches too.

Sleep tracking features have been enhanced with better algorithms and more precision. Samsung revealed that later this year, it will gain a blood Oxygen monitoring (SpO2) feature.
