Trust me, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 SM-R845F F-R845FZSAEUB watch’s party piece is the bezel, since it rotates mechanically, rather than having to tap on the screen or fiddle with a spinning crown. Not only is this easy and intuitive, but it also doesn’t block the view of the computer while communicating.

- The beauty of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 SM-R845F F-R845FZSAEUB comes from its usability rather than its looks.
- Samsung uses its Tizen software on Galaxy Watch 3, and not Google’s WearOS on Fossil, Mobvoi, or Motorola’s smartwatches. While WearOS is better than it was, it can be frustrating to use it. Tizen on the Galaxy Watch is refined and advanced and considerably closer in usability.
- Samsung does a fine job of displaying data on the small screen of Watch 3. Text is simple, wide and legible even in sunlight, and since the widget selection can be customised, you seldom need to visit the main app menu. This feature makes it easy to find what you want. It’s all beautiful, too, with lots of photos and graphics being used throughout, right down to wide profile images used for WhatsApp messages, and bold colours to distinguish modes, icons, and menu choices.
- It’s fun and enjoyable, but it’s not cheap. You will like the option of watch faces, as there are hundreds available in the Galaxy Store if you don’t want Samsung’s pre-installed ones.

Like all round smartwatches, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 SM-R845F F-R845FZSAEUB sticks closely to the conventional watch style, so you will not be immediately identified as a “smartwatch wearer” if you don’t want to. But that comes with a degree of anonymity.
