How it works Compared to the Gear S3 Frontier
Swimming Compatibility: The Galaxy SM-R800NZSAXAR is a swim-ready water resistance smartwatch which has the capacity to last 50m submerge, while the gear s3 frontier production does not readily support the feature.
Battery Life: The 46mm Samsung Galaxy Watch features a 472mAh battery, while the 42mm model has a 270mAh battery. These last up to seven days, and four days respectively.
The Gear S3 has a 380mAh which could last between 3 and 4 days.
Glass Cover: The Gear S3 was covered in Corning Gorilla Glass SR+ glass, while the Galaxy Watch uses Corning Gorilla Glass DX+which not only improves quality but also offers superior scratch resistance.
Internal Specs: As more emphasis are not made on the internal spec of smartwatch at the moment it is best to know the comparison here too
The 46mm Samsung Galaxy Watch features an Exynos 9110 Dual cores 1.15GHz with 1.5GB RAM + 4GB Internal Memory and the 42mm version has 768MB RAM.
While the Samsung Gear S3 has Exynos 7270, Dual 1.0GHz with 768MB RAM and 4GB Storage.
Who is the Samsung Galaxy SM-R800NZSAXAR for
The wristwatch is meant for you if you are on the look for:
Style: Of course this is the best feature I like about the Samsung galaxy SM-R800NZSAXAR, as a fashion and style person, we look forward to looking the best with any of the fashion items we choose to accessorize with. So what is special about this particular smartwatch?, The smartwatch is available in two sizes and three colors, the Galaxy Watch offers stylish watch faces so realistic they hardly look digital. Plus, choose from a collection of interchangeable bands.
Smart Connectivity: Looking for an escape from your mobile phone?, There are several times we just want to drop our phones while we perform some of our day activities, some of which are sport activities or when we are on our job. The Galaxy Watch pairs with both Android and iOS smartphones via Bluetooth connection which makes it easy to listen to our music, receive calls, exercise with ease and do a lot more.
Smart Notification: The Samsung Galaxy runs on 802.11 b/g/n Supported by essentially all wireless devices and network equipment in use today and the 2.4GHz Bluetooth v4.2 Which allows for secure connectivity and data protection. All this incorporated in the wristwatch makes notifications provided smart and at the right time.
Design/ Personalization TheSM-R800NZSAXAR has the adjustable watch face feature which allows you to choose from different watch faces depending on your style or what you expect from a wrist watch, which is exactly what I like about the watch, I could use a watch face today and use a different watch face style the next and there are several choice to select from for several needs.
Durability: When thinking of getting a durable wristwatch what do you expect, I would look for the ability to withstand wear, pressure, or damage The Galaxy Watch takes on life with military-grade durability, swim-ready water resistance and Corning Gorilla Glass DX+ that prevents the display from getting scratched.
Ease in Making Payment: Making payment have been made easy with the Samsung Pay NFC compatibility feature included in the smartwatch, you can make a payment from your wrist with just a tap.
Less Battery Issue: this will be divided in two categories,
First, how does it feel to stop worrying about changing the battery cell of your wristwatch?, if you ask me that is real awesome feeling, because most times with the previous designs of wristwatch you’d have to open the back cover of your wristwatch to change the battery with constant opening and closing of the back cover and in most cases that is where the depreciation of the life of the watch starts from.
Next lets talk about the smartwatch feature, you don’t have to carry your power pack around connected to your wristwatch which would look wierld if you ask me ( like receiving drip), lets forget about that thought and focus on what the Samsung galaxy wristwatch has to offer. The smartwatch allows you go nonstop for days on a single charge. The wireless charger lets you power up without slowing down.
Sound: You would not want to receive your calls in a noisy environment, if not in a silent and cozy place listening in calls could be hard.
Battery Life: battery life here solely depends on use and varies according to settings set up on the wristwatch, as advised by the manufacturers in the product description
(Average expected performance based on typical use. Results may vary.). For optimal use
How do you safe battery life?
- Close unnecessary apps
- Switch off Bluetooth when not in use
- Reduce screen brightness
- For extreme cases, Turn on power saving mode
- Switch off smartwatch display when not in use
- Use your smartphone to adjust the notification settings.
App Store: Has it’s own app store and does not support google play or other app stores, this can be a real turn off for android users who basically have most of their applications already from Google play app store. Another major turn – off is the fact that the applications on the wrist watch are limited as compared to the unlimited selection choice you get from using the Google play app store.
Other Cons which depends solely on usage are:
- Fluctuating heart rate monitor
- inaccuracy in step count
What product don’t’t have a con, once you’ ve successfully identified the cons and alternative ways out, then you can go on ahead and get the Samsung galaxy M-R800NZSAXAR smartwatch.
