Samsung introduces the Galaxy watch and Galaxy Home Smart Speaker

by Tarvin Gill

Other than just the Note 9, Samsung also introduced the new Galaxy Watch as well as the rumoured Galaxy Home Speaker that runs, you guessed it, Bixby.

The Galaxy Watch pairs well with all Galaxy devices, but it is also capable of running on its own thanks to the support of LTE connectivity. It will come in two models, the 46mm silver version and a smaller 42mm black and rose gold versions. It features a 1.3- or 1.2-inch Super AMOLED display, 5 ATM water resistance, IP68 certification and is running on the Exynos 9110 processor which was specially made for their wearable lineup.

The processor will give the watch a few days of battery life but they failed to mention what is the exact number of days. Just like most smartwatches, it also comes with a range of health features like stress monitoring, sleep tracking, heart rate monitor and more. The Galaxy watch will be available on August 24th and it will come to other parts of the world from September 14th onwards. The 42mm watch will cost $329.99 and the 46mm will cost $349.99.

Next is the Galaxy Home smart speaker which is made to go against the Apple HomePod and the Google Home. There are six speakers build into the body with a subwoofer at the bottom, the speaker, just like the HomePod, come with environment detection to tune the audio to better fit the surrounding. It also comes with eight far-field microphones to ensure that it can always hear you even in a noisy enviroment. Samsung has also mentioned that they have partnered up with Spotify to bring functions and features to all Samsung smart devices. They claimed it will be much easier for you to move your music around, from your phone to a Samsung SmartTV as well as the Galaxy Speaker.

Not much information was shared on the Galaxy Speaker but the company has said that they will provide more information very soon.
