Galaxy Watch 3 review: A stunning smartwatch with SpO2 tracking and ECG

Like

  • Premium design with a physical rotating bezel
  • Advanced sleep tracking
  • Running tools that go beyond the basics
  • Measures blood oxygen levels and VO2 max

Don’t Like

  • Missing blood pressure feature
  • Battery life on the smaller watch is disappointing
  • Uncomfortable to sleep with
  • Bixby is slow to register voice commands

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 3 has a lot working in its favor. It’s one of the best-looking smartwatches, with a bright, circular AMOLED display. And it has new fitness aids such as a running coach feature, the option to sync workouts from your TV to your wrist, better sleep tracking than earlier models and advanced health tools, including an electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) app and measuring blood oxygen levels. But it still can’t deliver on all of its health promises at launch, and battery life isn’t as great as I’d expected.
