JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – 02 October, 2020When Samsung recently launched its new devices to empower work and play, the Galaxy Watch3 was unveiled to critical acclaim. Galaxy Watch3 is a next-generation companion for managing your routines, smashing your fitness goals, and taking ownership over your health. Across the world, the reviews clearly indicate it’s the android watch whose time has come.


“The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 is the best smartwatch for Android by some margin” was the verdict by the renowned newspaper The Guardian*. Experts agree, with the Galaxy Watch 3 attaining incredibly high ratings for its design and performance by Android Authority, Android Central, Expert Reviews, Tech Radar and many more.


“We’re pleased to see the reaction to this pioneering device by industry experts. However, we look forward to hearing from our customers and delivering an experience like no other, “said Justin Hume, Director: Integrated Mobility at Samsung South Africa.


Galaxy Watch3, a Premium Smartwatch along with Advanced Health Features


Built with premium materials and a slimmed-down version of the popular rotating bezel, Galaxy Watch3 features the craftsmanship of a luxury timepiece, while still being comfortable enough to wear all day and all night. This smartwatch isn’t just appealing to the eye—it’s also the centre of your wellness experience, sporting Samsung’s most expansive health suite yet.


With the Blood oxygen feature, you can measure and track oxygen saturation over time, for fitness and wellness purposes[1]. The new Samsung Health Monitor app on Galaxy Watch3 offers cuff-less blood pressure[2] and electrocardiogram measurements, available in markets where these features have been authorised[3]. When a potential fall is detected, your location will be sent immediately to pre-designated contacts[4]. Running Analysis will help you run better, improve form and prevent injuries, while VO2 max follows your cardio progress to provide insight into oxygen consumption[5]. For those who want to stay fit while being at home, Samsung Health provides more than 120 different home training programs so you can track your workout progress on your watch.
