Along with its new Galaxy Fold and Galaxy S10 family, Samsung today took the wraps off of a trio of new wearable devices.
First up is the Galaxy Watch Active, which ditches the rotating bezel found on previous Samsung smartwatches. This wearable is all about tracking, offering a thin and light body that won't weigh you down while you're working out. It's got workout auto-detection when your running, biking, rowing, or using the elliptical, and you can manually track more than 39 activities.
The Galaxy Watch Active is also equipped with sleep tracking and a new Stress Tracker, which can help you perform breathing exercises to keep you calm. A brand new Galaxy wearable feature is the blood pressure monitoring, which uses the My BP Lab app that was co-developed with the University of California, San Francisco, to keep an eye on your blood pressure throughout the day.
When it comes to raw specs, the Galaxy Watch Active boasts a 1.1-inch 360x360 AMOLED display with Always On functioncality, a dual-core 1.15GHz Exynos 9110 processor, 768MB of RAM, and 4GB of storage. It's got 5ATM and IP68 water resistance and meets MIL-STD-810G standards, and it's got a 230mAh battery. Samsung says that you can swap the 20mm bands on the Galaxy Watch Active to find a strap that fits your style.
If you'd prefer something even smaller, you may want to consider the Galaxy Fit. There are two versions of this wearable: the Galaxy Fit with a 0.95-inch 120x240 full color AMOLED display and the Galaxy Fit e with a 0.74-inch PMOLED screen. These fitness-focused wearables offer automatic workout detection, message alerts, and the ability to sync your alarm, calendar, and weather info from your phone.
The Galaxy Fit offers a 96MHz MCU Cortex M33F processor, 512KB of internal RAM, 2048KB of external RAM, and 32MB of ROM. It's also got NFC, a 120mAh battery, 5ATM water resistance, and MIL-STD-810G compliance. The more entry-level Galaxy Fit e has a 96MHz MCU Cortex M0 processor, 128KB RAM, 4MB ROM, a 70mAh battery, 5ATM water resistance, and MIL-STD-810G compliance. Both offer heart rate tracking and an accelerometer, and both are compatible with Android and iOS.
Rounding things out are the Galaxy Buds, Samsung's latest truly wireles earbuds. These offer sound tuned by AKG and an Enhanced Ambient Sound feature that'll let you better hear what's going on around you while you're listening to your tunes. Adaptive Dual Microphones use one inner mic and one outer mic so that your voice can be heard clearly on calls.
The Galaxy Buds offer up to six hours of Bluetooth streaming and five hours of calls. When the battery needs recharging, you can drop them in the charging case, which holds a charge for up to seven hours and can give the Galaxy Buds 1.7 hours on a 15-minute charge. You can also recharge the case using the Wireless PowerShare feature on the new S10 phones.
Samsung's Galaxy Buds include Bluetooth 5.0, ear on/off detection, and a USB-C port for charging.
