With four days of battery life, an attractive design, great fitness features — and did we mention the battery life? — the Samsung Galaxy Watch is a step forward for smartwatches.
When the Samsung Galaxy Watch first came out, it proved there’s a real place in the world for smartwatches. As phones get bigger, it’s increasingly handy to be able to simply glance at your wrist and find the time, who’s calling or texting, the weather, and more.
But one thing that kept me from buying a smartwatch: battery life, or, more precisely, the lack thereof. Even now, a few years after I conducted this Samsung Galaxy Watch review, the best smartwatches will last two days at the most.
