The past few months have been filled with speculation surrounding the Galaxy S10 family (which has been fully fleshed out over the past few days) and the Galaxy F folding smartphone. However, Samsung might have another product release up its sleeve for the February 20th “Unpacked” event: a new smartwatch.
What we have here is a render of the Galaxy Watch Sport smartwatch, which is the fitness-oriented counterpart to the Galaxy Watch. As you can see, the device carries a premium- and sports-infused design with a round, brushed metallic body and an overall clean, unadorned look. We can see two buttons on the right side of the body and what looks to be a standard sweatproof fluoroelastomer band.
According to previous leaks surrounding the smartwatch, it will feature 4GB of RAM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC (for Samsung Pay), and GPS. It will also include a sleep monitor, heart rate monitor, activity tracker, and other fitness-related sensors.
If the Galaxy Watch Sport is anything like its more premium-oriented Galaxy Watch sibling, we should expect stellar battery life thanks to its [likely] use of Samsung's own Exynos 9110 Dual core 1.15GHz SoC and the efficient Tizen operating system. In our testing, we found that the Galaxy Watch could last about five and a half days between charging – even with constant use, regular workouts, and sleep tracking enabled.
We should learn more about the Galaxy Watch Sport in just over two weeks… that is if additional details don’t leak out before then.
