We like it when manufacturers give you a wide choice of devices, and Samsung has done this with their smartwatch range. Whether you want a basic smartwatch with fitness features or one with specialized features to support your active lifestyle, you will find one to fit your needs. Unlike Apple watches which are only compatible with iPhones, Samsung Watches are compatible with many devices. Over time, Samsung has worked on its features, and the latest Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 delivers new features like fall detection. There are several great Samsung smartwatches. Let’s look at some
Samsung Galaxy Watch 3
The Samsung Galaxy watch 3 sits at the top of the chain when it comes to Android-compatible smartwatches. Running Samsung’s Tizen OS 5.5, the smartwatch has a dual-core 1.15GHz processor. It is plenty fast for normal operations, and whether you opt for the 41mm or the 45mm case size, you can expect a battery life of over 2.5days. It is a fantastic premium design, and the rotating bezel is a nice touch straight from the mechanical watch’s world.
The Galaxy Watch 3 comes slimmer and lighter than the original Samsung galaxy watch it replaces, but it is also lighter and sleeker. It looks the part when working out or as a dress watch to work. But it’s not all about the looks. It packs some useful features like GPS, VO2 reading, sleep, and rest tracking, IP68 water resistance, and fall detection. The health features include an ECG and blood pressure monitor. All these features make it a great everyday wearable and fitness companion.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2
The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 is Samsung’s specialized activity watch, and the features are geared toward making it the best at it. It runs Samsung’s Tizen OS just like the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, but it drops the rotating bezel for an even slimmer and lighter look. It now comes with a digital rotating bezel which you can use to navigate the watch’s features, but that said, it may not have the tactile feedback of the physical rotating bezel if you are used to it. The watch is compatible with both android and iOS devices, and the 1.4” 360 x 360 Super AMOLED display gets bright enough for use in sunlight. The case sizes are 40mm and 44mm, but the smaller case size comes with a smaller battery. That said, you still get up to 2 days of battery life on both devices.
If you are in the market for a sporty watch, the Galaxy Watch Active 2 has plenty of health and fitness features. You get a heart rate monitor, GPS to track work hours, and IP68 water resistance for when you want to swim. You can record up to 39 workouts and store them on Samsung’s health app. There is a stainless steel and aluminum version, and you could also take advantage of the improved LTE and Bluetooth connectivity.
Samsung Galaxy Watch
The Samsung Galaxy Watch came in as one of the more refined smartwatches because of its appealing looks, gorgeous user interface, and crazy 4-day battery life. The stylized bezel and circular steel case give it the looks of a high-end watch, and it performs just as well despite having been on the market for a few years already.
It comes as a 42mm or 46mm case watch, and the stock color options are silver, midnight black, and rose gold. The rotating bezel and two additional buttons make it easy to navigate and operate. That said, the smaller case has a 270mAh battery compared to the 472mAh on the 46mm case, which certainly makes a case for the bigger watch. The Galaxy Watch can track 21 indoor exercises and 39 tracked workouts, and you also get sleep tacking and a Bixby voice assistant. It has IP68 water and dust resistance rating, and you can actually use Samsung pay on the watch.
Samsung Galaxy Watch Active
The Samsung Watch Active isn’t very different from the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 that replaced it. They are closely matched at 6 months between their respective releases, and the Watch Active 2 one-ups the original watch active by mobile internet and the switch to the digital rotating bezel. The battery life is similar and has the same fitness features. It remains the same lightweight and simple watch, which makes it great for bed than the chunkier Samsung Galaxy Watch. It is limited to a 40mm case, but the 1.1” 360 x 360 Super AMOLED display works well, even 50M underwater, thanks to its IP68 water and dust resistance rating. The Galaxy Watch runs Tizen OS like all Samsung smartwatches and is compatible with Android and iOS devices. If you are looking for a more adorable workout watch, there is none better than these.
While you could buy all these watches new, they offer better value as refurbished devices. Samsung Galaxy Smartwatches are among the most well-taken care of devices and adding to seller inspection and maintenance, you can score a bargain and have the most value from your refurbished Samsung Smartwatch.
