Galaxy Watch assists users in more intuitive time management. Users can easily set an alarm, view daily schdeules and receive upcoming appointment notifications with My Day watch face. They can also start and end their days with morning and evening briefings to stay on top of reminders, weather conditions and their latest schedules.

The Galaxy Watch features a total of 39 kinds of workouts that allow consumers to customize their trainings, while receiving statistics like exercise time, calories burned, heart rate, distance, speed, and pace with such a seemingly wearable personal coach. Water Lock Mode of the Galaxy Watch prevents the force of water from inadvertently activating any functions when they are swimming[5]

Galaxy Watch’s four photodiode sensors can track users’ wellness more accurately than ever, making it the best companion to monitor users’ health status. Not only does the Galaxy Watch measure heart rate more precisely, it can also monitor different phases of sleep and provide users with the directions in improving their sleeping quality. The Galaxy Watch can even check users’ stress levels and breathing frequency, so as to offer corresponding breathing exercises to help users manage their stress more effectively.
