After numerous leaks, many of them from the Korean company itself, Samsung finally officially launched the Galaxy Fit3 today. The latest wearable offers a larger display, long battery life and some new features, too. The long-awaited successor to the Fit2 will be available for sale worldwide starting tomorrow, February 23rd. However, Samsung has not yet announced a price.

The Samsung Galaxy Fit3 features a 1.6-inch AMOLED display, 45% larger than the previous model. There is a single button on the right side and a one-click quick release mechanism on the bracelet. Unfortunately, you cannot charge the smart band wirelessly; instead, there is a proprietary charger with two pogo pins on the base.

The Samsung smartwatch is the first device in the series to support fall detection and emergency SOS. The latter is triggered by five quick button presses and thus shares your location with the previously defined emergency contacts.

There is also good news when it comes to power supplies. The Samsung Galaxy Fit3 is said to last 13 days on a single charge with its 208 mAh battery. Avoiding Google’s Wear OS or another extensive operating system probably helps. Instead, the Fit3 runs on a proprietary system that only includes a few simple mini apps, calendar, weather, world clock and sports tracking.

The Samsung Galaxy Fit3 supports over 100 types of training, but unfortunately there is no GPS on board. This means you need a paired smartphone to record movement data. The smart band also records sleep patterns, steps and stress levels. The data can then be analyzed in the Samsung Health app.

The Samsung Galaxy Fit3 is sold in gray, rose gold and silver. Samsung will initially launch the device in Asia, Europe, Central America and South America. The USA and Korea are expected to follow shortly.
