Samsung Galaxy Watch review (early verdict): the Gear S3 successor has arrived

The Galaxy Watch works on its own, with LTE connectivity that works in 15-plus countries across 30-plus carriers' networks. The watch will last "several days" on a single charge thanks to its new optimized processor and low-power technology built into the device.

In terms of network support and retailers, in the United States the LTE version of the Galaxy Watch, which is set to cost more than the base model, is being sold via AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, and the official Samsung online store.

The Galaxy Watch also comes with the trademark circular, rotating bezel while embracing the digital look with Always On Display, in addition to improved usability.

Just about everything you could possibly want to know about the Galaxy Note9 has already leaked out, but there's still the official launch event to look forward to later today in NY.

Even in tough times, Samsung has a solid source of income it can lean on for investment: memory chips, an industry the world's biggest chipmaker controls with SK Hynix and Micron.

This automatically detects high levels of stress and offers breathing exercises to help keep users cetered and focused. Whether or not the phone's novel new features are appealing to you, it can at least be said that the phone does have novel new features. That's going to be our new go-to watch face when wearing this. The company didn't have a lot of details on how it would work, but it should be able to mirror the commands you issue to your Galaxy smartphone and, soon, the Samsung Galaxy Home speaker.

Samsung launched the Note 9 at 11 a.m.in NY on Thursday, or Friday midnight in Seoul.

Samsung is continuing to push SmartThings and Samsung Pay from the wrist, which are convenient features once you actually set them up (and remember your Samsung ID and password for all of this). But it also costs a whopping £899 for the basic 128GB model. The Note 9 is created to encourage adoption of the feature by allowing users to connect the phone to a monitor via an HDMI cable, bypassing the need to buy a separate docking station.

It will come as a surprise to absolutely no one that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is now official following the company's Unpacked event.

Samsung is eschewing Wear OS (formerly Android Wear) with its latest smartwatch, and that may be the reason behind its longer battery life. The Galaxy Watch, like the Apple Watch Series 2 and 3, is also water-resistant up to 5 ATM.
