Samsung’s New LTE Galaxy Watch Focuses On Fitness

Samsung Galaxy Watch

Priced at $329.99, "Galaxy Watch" comes with LTE connectivity and the new stress-and-sleep-monitoring capabilities would allow users to text, stream music, receive notifications and would work in compatibility with Galaxy Note 9 or even independently. "Everything is a little bit better, but nothing's revolutionary".

Samsung even boasted that it controlled its Note 9 presentation using the banana-a-like stylus, before announcing that it plans to open up the SDK to developers so functionality can be built into third-party apps. The company is also sending phones to outside labs, including UL, for independent safety tests. That's not quite as friendly to petite wrists as the 38mm Apple Watch, but the Galaxy Watch's round face could make it look more like an oversized timepiece and less like a smartphone on your wrist. "This is the right innovation at the right time".

Samsung also launched the Galaxy Home speaker, a device that will use its Bixby voice assistant and compete with similar products from Amazon.com Inc, Apple Inc and Alphabet Inc's Google. Lovers of the game will get an exclusive Note 9 character skin or alternative appearance for characters. It connects to your phone but also has its own 4G/LTE connectivity.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch release date is August 24.

Would the Note 9 be a good match for your business?

The 6.4-inch screen Note 9 will start at US$999.99 and max out at US$1,249.99 - becoming, at about US$100 above the iPhone X's upper limit, one of the world's most expensive consumer phones.

Thursday's announcement in NY comes about a month before Apple is expected to unveil new iPhones.

Note 9 with Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display houses 4000mAh battery - 21 per cent bigger that Note 8 - that is paired with fast-charging technology compatible with both wired and wireless charging.

In a thinly veiled stab at major competitor Apple, Samsung Electronics Australia mobile division vice-president Garry McGregor said the new feature was something rival gadgets had yet to match.

Here, we'd expect to laud the Note 9 as a harbinger: it usually provides clues for the future of the Galaxy S series. Purists can turn the feature off to get images that reflect what the eye sees - an option unavailable with Pixel. The Note was the first modern enthusiast's smartphone, and it attracted a fiercely loyal buyer who, to put it bluntly, thought big-ass phones were awesome and that iPhones couldn't possibly meet a power user's needs. It promises quality sound, in a potential challenge to Apple's Siri-based HomePod speaker.
