A year after the Galaxy Watch 5, Samsung is updating its smartwatch: With the Galaxy Watch 6 and 6 Classic, the manufacturer is delivering new hardware with more power, thinner display edges, some larger screens and new health functions. The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will not be relaunched but will remain in the portfolio.

What’s New in Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Classic

The new Classic models of the Galaxy Watch family will have a 20 per cent larger display and larger batteries, which should give the smartwatches a longer service life, according to the manufacturer.

While the Watch4 Classic variants were equipped with 42 and 46-millimetre cases, the Galaxy Watch6 Classic model has been enlarged to 43 and 47 millimetres respectively. The screens are 1.5 and 1.3 inches respectively and have a resolution of 480 by 480 and 432 by 432 pixels.

Due to smaller display bezels and clock control bezels, despite having larger screens, they aren’t significantly larger than their predecessors.

The Watch 6 models without the Classic addition have 40 and 44-millimetre cases in which displays with the same diagonals as the Classic models were installed. According to Samsung, the higher-resolution display of the watches achieves a peak brightness of 2,000 nits. With a function for automatic brightness adjustment when using the always-on display, good readability is made possible even in sunshine.

For faster system performance, Samsung also uses a new processor, the Exynos W930, which is supplemented by 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of memory. Meanwhile, the manufacturer installed the same W920 chip in the Watch 4 and Watch 5 models.

The batteries of the smartwatches are 412 and 300 mAh in size and should last 40 hours with the always-on display (AOD) deactivated – 30 hours are possible with AOD. The battery can also be charged within eight minutes so that the watch can be used for another eight hours, according to Samsung. For comparison: the batteries of the Watch 5 smartwatches are smaller with 284 or 410 milliampere hours.

Furthermore, the watches are protected against water and dust according to IP68 and have Bluetooth 5.3, NFC, GPS and WLAN with 2.4 and 5 megahertz. Models with LTE are optionally available.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 and 6 Classic – Sleep and Fitness

According to Samsung, the new smartwatches have been enhanced with health functions, with which they give wearers individual tips for better sleep and provide numerous metrics such as information on total sleep time, sleep cycle, wake time and physical and mental recovery.

According to Samsung, the body composition function also provides measured values for skeletal muscles, basal metabolic rate, body water and body fat percentage – i.e. a comprehensive snapshot of the body and personal fitness. Based on this data, the watches should be able to define individual fitness goals and progress can be measured.

Furthermore, the watches are able to analyze the heart rate ranges (Personalized Heart Rate Zone) of the wearers and to measure the individual physical performance. In addition, the Galaxy Watch 6 models can do an ECG and measure blood pressure. According to Samsung, an “HR Alert” can also indicate abnormally high or low heart rates. The latter function is not yet available at the start of sales.

In addition, the Galaxy Watch 6 can measure skin temperature while sleeping and can be used for menstrual cycle tracking, for example. The temperature sensor apparently offers other possible uses.

Using a new interface, the app Thermo-Check can be used, for example, with which users can measure the temperature of their surroundings without contact: “From the meal they are currently eating to the water in which they want to swim.”

Other features include fall detection, which automatically triggers an emergency call if the worst comes to the worst. In addition, predefined emergency contacts can be notified.

Aside from the health functions, Samsung has also expanded the wallet so that it can not only be used to pay via Samsung Pay. ID cards, event tickets, boarding passes, credit cards or membership cards can also be “conveniently stored on the smartwatch”. Not all features should be usable in Germany.
