Smartwatches are smart and convenient, and then you need to charge them. That’s probably one reason why wearable devices — particularly smartwatches — have failed to fly high even though brands like Apple and Samsung and others continue to make them year after year. Samsung, in fact, goes a step further and launches two flagship smartwatches a year. One for the regular folk, and the other for fitness freaks. Things are different this year. The biggest change this year is that Samsung is letting go of the Gear branding, and instead calling its new smartwatch — that technically should have been called the Gear S4 — simply the Galaxy Watch. And it’s quoting some crazy battery stats.The Galaxy Watch will be available in two variants, a 46mm silver and a smaller 42mm black and rose gold. Both the variants will further be made available in Bluetooth and LTE options. Battery capacity isn’t being dictated by connectivity, but, by size. While the 46mm variant is backed by a 472mAh battery, the 42mm variant has a smaller 270mAh battery driving the whole thing. The Classic and Frontier variants of the Gear S3, to recall, were backed by the same 380mAh battery rated to deliver up to four days of battery life on moderate usage.The Gear S3, and even the Gear S2 which came with a paltry 250mAh battery had fantastic battery life. By smartwatch standards, that is. Samsung says the Galaxy Watch can last even longer, that is also taking into account all the extra power-consuming features that it comes with as opposed to the Gear S2 and the Gear S3. Even though Samsung doesn’t explicitly say if the figures that it is quoting belong to the Bluetooth or the stand-alone LTE variant of the Galaxy Watch, the numbers are still very encouraging when compared with competition, more precisely the Apple Watch Series 3. Because Samsung has been actually able to deliver on the battery front, there is a lot to be excited about for when the Galaxy Watch starts shipping in September.advertisementHere’s a quick look at the numbers:– Galaxy Watch 46mm: 80+ hours with typical usage, up to 168 hours with low usage– Galaxy Watch 42mm: 45+ hours with typical usage, up to 120 hours with low usageThe actual time of battery life may vary depending on the network connection, component, setting, signal strength, noise and many other elements, according to Samsung. A lot of this, of course, also has to do with the processor that’s inside Samsung’s smartwatches. While the Gear S3 was powered by an Exynos 7270 processor, the Galaxy Watch has a more powerful Exynos 9110 inside it. When clubbed with Samsung’s in-house Tizen OS software — well optimized software — the company’s smartwatches are quite literally a pleasure to work around with. I can also go on and say that a Samsung smartwatch with Tizen OS offers the best in-class software experience. Even more so than Samsung’s smartphones that run TouchWiz or Experience UI. A great thing about designing both hardware and software in-house means that Samsung has full control over things, including battery saving algorithms. If the Gear S3 and the Gear S2 are anything to be gone by, it is safe to say that, Samsung has been able to crack that code. Something that even Apple failed to do.The Galaxy Watch should be as good if not better. In addition to its battery saving algorithms, Samsung is also using Gorilla Glass DX+ protection up-top, and according to Corning, it has its own virtue to conserve battery life.”Gorilla Glass DX+ enhances display readability by lowering the front surface reflection by 75 per cent versus standard glass, and increasing the display contrast ratio by 50 per cent with the same display brightness level. These improvements in optical clarity can also improve battery life,” says Corning adding that the Galaxy Watch is the first major smartwatch to ship with its new version of protective glass.ALSO READ: This is the best feature of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9There’s a lot to love about Samsung’s Gear watches. They come packed with many features and have a gorgeous Super AMOLED display that also supports full-colour always-on functionality. The Galaxy Watch is no different, although it must be understood, that it isn’t geared towards fitness enthusiasts like the Gear Sport. Samsung may launch a Galaxy Watch Sport later, but for now, the Galaxy Watch is all that you get. It’s a good thing then that it is so good, at least on paper and going by Samsung’s recent track record with these things, chances are it would be another winner as well. But the best part about it would be its battery life, according to Samsung, and that is what would probably differentiate it from the rest of the pack.advertisementAs a side-note, Samsung has also launched a new Wireless Charger Duo accessory, that lets you fast charge a Galaxy phone (that supports wireless charging) and the Galaxy Watch wirelessly simultaneously.
