Samsung’s New LTE Galaxy Watch Focuses On Fitness

Samsung’s New LTE Galaxy Watch Focuses On Fitness

The Galaxy Watch, revealed at the company's worldwide event in Brooklyn overnight, will be the first Samsung smartwatch with its own mobile internet connection, and the first wearable technology in Australia that will connect to mobile networks overseas, allowing Aussie travellers to access maps and stay in contact while on holidays.

Here are my thoughts on the Samsung Galaxy Watch, broken down into a series of key scoring categories, ranging from design and build quality, to hardware and features. Here's what you need to know. Samsung has let on that, as far as functionality goes, the Galaxy Home will be able to do numerous same things Bixby does on smartphones.

Let's skip past the lack of upgrades on the new Galaxy Watch, the "and-me" smart speaker and the decision to have "Mr Doodle" on stage drawing with a product launched a few weeks ago, and jump straight to the Note 9. Samsung gives you a discount today and then forces you to prove it later by sending your phone in after your new Note 9 arrives. Were the rumours true? On this side of the pond, I've been emailed by Carphone Warehouse in the United Kingdom saying you can get a Galaxy Note9 for £46 per month on with 30GB per month and zero upfront cost.

We can expect Amazon and Flipkart to offer the device for pre-order as well. Find out right here.

For low usage, the battery can last up to seven days.

Just by using a single button, you can automatically enter a party of two purely based on previous reservations. So there's no scope to test out things like battery life or how it handles things like being caught in the rain (It's IP68 rated waterproof) or knocked off a desk.

As the currency drops, Turkish companies and households with debt in foreign currencies see their debts expand. Coupled with an inflation rate of almost 16 per cent, that could cause a lot of damage to the local economy.

Multiple fatalities confirmed after shooting incident in Canada
The Winnipeg native, who lives immediately off Brookside, said residents have been advised to stay inside with their doors locked. Last month, a gunman walked down a busy Toronto street, killing two people and wounding 13 before turning his gun on himself.

Turkish lira tumbles to fresh low
The lira lost 12pc against the dollar on Friday following an escalation of the tensions between Turkey and America. Going in the opposite direction was the safe-haven Japanese yen , which hit a one-month high against the dollar.

Connectivity overseas is also a priority, with over 30 countries being Samsung Galaxy Watch ready.

Samsung billed the Galaxy Watch as a complete fitness tracker as well, with the ability to track 39 activities and with auto-recognition for six popular workouts. Also, watch interviews of top CEOs. It'll offer you breathing tips if it detects a spike in heart rate, or track your exercise progress, or monitor sleep patterns.

Not using a Samsung device? The 42mm comes in rose gold and black, and the larger 46mm model is silver.

If you prefer, there is also the option of tuning in on the Samsung Mobile pages on Facebook, or the Samsung Newsroom on Facebook.

Seamlessly connected devices have been a huge focus of Unpacked this year, so this makes sense. And Samsung has a point: the original Note wasn't just critically disliked for its objective flaws, it was panned as much - if not more - for being an ungainly monster of a phone. The cellular pricing will be determined by the carriers.

They will be available in Australia on October 4.
