We saw a 3-minute overview video of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 yesterday, and today we have a full 8-minute unboxing, comparing it to older Samsung smartwatches and also the Apple Watch.
It appears Samsung managed to sell the 41mm bronze Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 early, allowing The Mobile Channel to give the device a good going over.
Compared to the Galaxy Watch Active 2, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 has a thinner bezel, larger screen to bezel ratio, a different style of buttons, rotating bezel, animated watch faces, and improved apps such as period trackers.
The full specs of the new smartwatches had leaked earlier and they can be seen below:
