Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 3 SM-R850 F-R850NZDAEUB has a 1.2-inch 360 x 360 OLED screen. Trust me, this is a lot of pixels for a small monitor. The contrast is excellent, bright enough for decent visibility on sunny days. And this is a touchscreen, of course. You use the touchscreen to pick objects, and in certain cases, you can click instead of turning the bezel. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 monitor turns off after five seconds of inactivity. But for the best day-to-day experience, you’re going to want to move to “always-on” mode. This feature reveals a condensed, dimmed version of your watch face as you sit idly on your wrist.

- This watch has a relatively tiny 370mAh battery, and Samsung claims it lasts 56 hours. Or two days and a further eight hours.
- It has the GPS you want for precise distance and position tracking, and there are loads of modes, 41 in all.
- Activity modes of most fitness watch only display the same metrics slightly differently and add a different mark to your workout history. When you’re going beyond simple running, cycling and walking modes, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 starts behaving more like a coach. For example, it guides you through squat reps with on-screen graphics, prompts through built-in speakers and vibration buzzes.
- Battery life is not strong
The consistency of the heart rate is critical for real fitness monitoring skills. Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 SM-R850 F-R850NZDAEUB is a fantastic fitness tracker. You can maximise this smartwatch for a few hikes and runs.
