Samsung Galaxy Watch
The Samsung Galaxy Watch comes with a military-grade water-resistant body, accelerometer, gyro sensor, HR sensor, light sensor, and a 1.3 inch AMOLED display. You get to pick from different sizes (42 mm and 46 mm) and 3 colors. Design-wise, it looks beautiful with a large circular dial and a bright color display.
It can automatically track select workouts and detect when you switch activities. For instance, it will automatically trigger the exercise tracker if you start walking without activating it. Up to 40 workouts can also be tracked manually which is very impressive. As for battery life, the 46 mm has a larger battery that gives 4 days and the 42 mm provides 3 days which is pretty good. You also have a low power mode that can help you to maximize the battery life allowing you to use it more when you need it. The wireless charger is also very convenient to have as it increases your mobility.
