Samsung has launched its latest flagship smartwatch lineup, the Galaxy Watch 6 series, alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 5, Z Flip 5, and Tab S9 series. Here, we’ll be talking about the vanilla Galaxy Watch 6, which brings the power of the Exynos W930 chip and Wear OS 4. Without further ado, let’s get into everything about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6, including its specs, features, and official price in Nepal.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Overview:
Design and Display
The Galaxy Watch 6 lineup includes two models: the Galaxy Watch 6 and the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic. And while the “Classic” variant is bringing back the beloved rotating bezel, the vanilla Galaxy Watch 6 doesn’t look all that different from its predecessor. It is still sturdy with an aluminum build and Samsung ships it in two color options: Graphite and Gold.
Likewise, Galaxy Watch 6 arrives in 40mm and 44mm options; both with Bluetooth and 4G configurations. The display here is 20% larger with 30% slimmer bezels than its predecessor. You get 1.3-inch and 1.5-inch sAMOLED panels on the 40mm and 44mm models respectively. To keep those scratches and water damage at bay, Samsung has provided Sapphire Crystal glass and a 5ATM rating on this watch. Likewise, the company has also simplified the way to change straps this time around.
Exynos W930 chip
The Watch 6 is powered by the recently announced Exynos W930 chipset. It supports Bluetooth 5.3 and Wi-Fi, and is built on a 5nm process; similar to Exynos W920. However, for wireless communication, the new chipset only works with the support of RF chipset.
The chip is coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Samsung promises 18% faster performance on the Watch 6. As for the software, it boots on Wear OS 4 with Samsung’s One UI 5 Watch skin on top.
The Watch 6 Classic brings in all those health tracking modes, including real-time heart rate, SpO2, women’s health, blood pressure, and skin temperature measurement. Thanks to the 3-in-1 BioActive Sensor. You can also get irregular heart rate notifications now, while Samsung has emphasized improved sleep tracking this time as well. With detailed analysis and sleep coaching features.
What’s even more useful is the safety features such as fall detection and SOS emergency dial. Getting to the sports modes, the Watch 6 covers over 90 workout modes, such as walking, running, cycling, swimming, weight lifting, and more.
