During the recent Unpack, Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Watch6 and the Galaxy Watch6 Classic.
The Watch6 Classic features rotating bezels, which was incredibly cool the first time we’ve had that. I don’t recall throughout the Unpack mentioning any unique features with the rotating bezel except for it being really cool and fun, and nice for fidgeting. We’ll update this if there are any features about it or we’ll confirm it in our review.
In any case, the Galaxy Watch6 gets more health monitoring features. This includes Sleep Score, a feature that records your sleep and lets you know how well you’ve slept. Personalized Sleep Messages, which is developed with the National Sleep Foundation so the Watch6 can give you some feedback about how to improve your sleep. And to make it a bit more fun, Samsung puts Sleep Animal Symbols, which will represent how you’ve been sleeping. Honestly, with all this talk about sleep, Samsung should partner with Nintendo to integrate Pokemon Sleep into their Watch6. (If they actually do that, you’ve heard it here first in the Manila Bulletin!)
The Galaxy Watch6 has a health coach that can give you a couple of nudges, such as avoiding caffeine (Never!). It also provides other information such as Body Composition, heart rate, Track Run, and custom workouts. Samsung hopes all of this information will be able to help users make health-based decisions. Samsung also takes pride in the Watch6 by mentioning it can detect atrial fibrillation, which is can be a dangerous heart rhythmn.
Also, if you would be wondering how can you properly charge the Watch6 if Samsung wants users to wear them all the time? The answer simply is, quick charge. Samsung says with an eight-minute charge, the Watch6 gets eight hours worth of power.
