Samsung India had announced Galaxy Note 9 as well as Samsung Galaxy watch series for the Indian market a month ago but hadn’t disclosed the pricing details or availability. Today the company officially launched its wearables series with the opening price of Rs 24,990 for the 42mm variant and Rs 29,990 will cost for the 46mm variant. The watches are made available in three different colors, which are Silver, Midnight Black, and Rose Gold.
The Galaxy Watch features Samsung’s signature rotating bezel, an analog watch face and an Always-On Super AMOLED display with a 360×360 resolution, covered in Corning Gorilla Glass DX+ for added protection. For additional sturdiness, the Galaxy Watch is also getting military-grade MIL-STD-810 certification. The smartwatch is powered by Exynos 9110 Dual core 1.15GHz processor. The coolest thing about the watch is its analog watch ticks and hourly chimes. The watch is also 5 ATM (atmosphere) water resistant which makes it usable even in shower or swimming pool. However, using the watch for scuba diving or other water-related sports is a strict no-no from the developers.
In a matter of durability, the Samsung Galaxy watch exceeds other smartwatches as the company promises the device to run for days on end on a single charge. So you can go ahead with non-stop calling, notifications and even regulate your daily schedule with the ‘My day’ watch face.
The Galaxy Watch extends our smartwatch tradition of blending timeless design with revolutionary technology. It is the perfect fashion accessory that can change completely to go with your look. And beneath its refined exterior, Galaxy Watch is a beast of a device, with features that keep up with a wide variety of activities & lifestyles. Put simply, Galaxy Watch is a testament to our single minded aim of meaningful innovation. That is why it leads the industry with a jaw dropping battery back-up that can last days on a single charge, delivering an uninterrupted & seamless experience that changes your lives. – Aditya Babbar, General Manager, Samsung India
