Samsung has officially unveiled a new member of its Galaxy Note series as ‘Galaxy Note 9 alongside Galaxy Watch. Samsung is offering the smartwatch in two sizes: a 46mm model that comes in silver, and a 42mm model which comes in midnight black and rose gold. The Galaxy Watch will be available in the U.S. as a Bluetooth-only version on August 24, and an LTE version, which will be available later this year.
Like the Gear S3, the Galaxy Watch runs on a Tizen OS, which is called better battery life than Android Ware. And this is one of the most powerful updates of the Galaxy Watch: the battery should last for several days on a single charge, approximately 80 hours compared to 18 hours of Apple Watch.
