Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 gets unboxed ahead of its announcement next week

Galaxy Watch

The Galaxy Watch 3 has already been showcased in a hands-on video that confirmed its specs. Further ruining Samsung's surprise for next week, an unboxing video of the 41mm Galaxy Watch 3 has now been posted on YouTube.

The nearly 9-minute long video details almost everything about Samsung's upcoming wearable and shows the watch in the beautiful Mystic Bronze color with its leather strap. The size of the Galaxy Watch 3 is also compared to the Apple Watch Series 4, Galaxy Watch Frontier Edition, and the original Galaxy Watch in the video. Thanks to slimmer bezels and redesigned side buttons, the Galaxy Watch 3 looks sleeker and better built compared to previous Samsung wearables.

The video details the slight UI changes that Samsung will be introducing with a new version of Tizen on the wearable. It also shows the new default watch face on the Galaxy Watch 3 which has a very clean look. The Health app on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 will offer stress tracking, weight management features, menstruation cycle tracking, and more. It is unclear if Samsung will be bringing the new Tizen version to its existing Galaxy wearables or not.

The YouTuber does note that the included leather strap is pretty small as despite his average-sized wrists, he had to use the last hook in the band. Samsung is likely targeting the 41mm Galaxy Watch 3 for women as the company will also be releasing a 45mm variant of the watch with a bigger display and strap size which will target men.

The confirmed specs of the Galaxy Watch 3 include 1GB RAM, 8GB storage, IP68 rating, ECG measurement, blood pressure monitoring, and more. The wearable will be announced by Samsung alongside the Galaxy Note20 series at a virtual Unpacked event next week.
