"At Samsung, we have a long history of providing consumers with choice,
while maintaining innovation within our products, and we are excited to
continue the proud heritage of our Galaxy line with our wearables," said
DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division,
Samsung Electronics. "The new Galaxy Watch was designed for all
lifestyles to help meet consumer needs, such as more efficient battery
life to stay connected longer, and better wellness tracking to help
users maintain their goals – we are delivering them with connected
experiences, all at the touch of a wrist."

Connected Health

Everyone has different health, wellness, and fitness goals; no matter
what they are, Galaxy Watch helps you meet them. With a new stress
management tracker2, Galaxy Watch tracks your heart rate, and
provides breathing exercises to help users stay focused. In addition,
the Galaxy Watch's advanced sleep tracking3 monitors all
levels of sleep, including REM cycles, to help users get the rest they
need to take on their day.

The Galaxy Watch's advanced fitness tracking features keep you
motivated, and on track. It automatically tracks six of the most popular
exercises—walking, running, cycling, elliptical, training, rowing, and
dynamic workouts—and features 21 new indoor exercises from a selection
of 39 activities. And because balanced nutrition is as important as
exercise, the Galaxy Watch is designed to help users track food and
water intake. Input your meals and get personalized alerts from Samsung
Health, or use Bixby on your Galaxy device to automatically count
calories, and get a personalized summary on your Galaxy Watch.

Personalization to Match Any Lifestyle

A watch is the classic fashion accessory, and the Galaxy Watch lets
users express their own unique style. It offers more sizes and styles
with a 46mm version in Silver, as well as a 42mm option in Midnight
Black and Rose Gold. Users can further customize with a selection of
watch faces and watch band options available on The Galaxy
Watch is designed with Samsung's signature, circular rotating bezels
while embracing the digital look with Always On Display, in addition to
improved usability —making it easier to get the most out of the device,
with the look of a traditional timepiece. And the Galaxy Watch is ready
to go where you go. It is certified military-level durability4
with Corning® Gorilla® Glass DX+ and 5 ATM5 water
resistance, so it can go from the swimming pool to the shower without
leaving your wrist.

Stay Connected – No Matter Where Your Day Takes You

The Galaxy Watch is designed with your active lifestyle in mind and has
an improved battery life that gets days of power on a single charge6—as
well as low-energy architecture, so users can recharge on their
schedule, not their watches. And with LTE connectivity, Samsung Galaxy
Watch users can enjoy a true standalone experience. They can answer
calls, respond to text messages, use GPS mapping, stream music, and
more, all from their wrist, and all without a smartphone in their
pocket. Users can also start and end their day with morning and evening
briefings to help stay on top of reminders, weather and their latest

Experience the Best of Samsung's Galaxy Ecosystem

Ecosystem. Users can enjoy a seamless experience with Samsung Health,
Samsung Pay7, Bixby, SmartThings and select third-party
partnerships such as Spotify and Under Armour. Easily access and control
your IoT compatible devices on the Galaxy Watch with SmartThings—turn on
the lights in the morning or adjust the temperature before bed. Samsung
makes music and multimedia control even easier on the Galaxy Watch with
Spotify, allowing users to listen to songs offline or without a
smartphone8. It's also easy to keep information secure thanks
to Samsung Knox, and unlock PCs or tablets using Samsung Flow.
