Samsung Galaxy Fit3 debuts with big screen, 13-day battery life

After a series of leaks, including some from Samsung itself, the tech giant has officially introduced the Galaxy Fit3 today. This much-anticipated wearable boasts a larger screen, extended battery life, and a range of new features. Although Samsung has announced its availability for global sale starting tomorrow, February 23, pricing details have not been disclosed yet.

The Galaxy Fit3 sports a 1.6-inch AMOLED display, representing a 45% increase in size compared to its predecessor, the Fit2. Featuring a single button on the right side and a one-click quick-release mechanism for the band, the Fit3 unfortunately does not support wireless charging. Instead, it utilizes a proprietary charger with two pogo pins at its base.

A notable addition to the Fit3 is its support for Fall Detection and Emergency SOS. Triggered by five rapid presses on the button, the Emergency SOS feature shares the user's location with pre-set emergency contacts.

Samsung claims the Galaxy Fit3 can deliver an impressive 13 days of battery life on a single charge, courtesy of its 208 mAh cell. This longevity is further supported by the absence of heavy interfaces like Wear OS, with the device primarily offering simple mini apps such as Calendar, Weather, World Clock, and sports tracking.

Despite supporting over 100 types of workouts, the Fit3 lacks built-in GPS. Therefore, activities involving outdoor movement would require pairing with a smartphone for enhanced tracking accuracy. Additionally, the wearable monitors sleep patterns, steps, and stress levels, with comprehensive data accessible via the Samsung Health app.

Available in Gray, Pink Gold, and Silver colors, the Galaxy Fit3 will initially launch in Asia, Europe, Central America, and South America. Subsequent releases are planned for the United States and Korea in the near future.
