In this article, we’ll examine the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 and Watch 6 Classic, which have a svelte appearance, strong performance, and a variety of capabilities, such as health tracking, fitness monitoring, and smart home control, making them the finest smartwatches for Android users.

Samsung has recently been less innovative than Apple, both with its high-end smartphones and its smartwatches. As an example, consider the newly released Galaxy S23, S23+, Galaxy Z Flip 5, and Galaxy Z Fold 5, all of which offer only incremental improvements in terms of performance and photography quality. The Galaxy Watch 6 series from Samsung also carries on this heritage for users of the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. A new chipset, a few somewhat larger displays (one of which brings back the rotating bezel), and improved personalization of health and fitness tracking are all included.

On paper, there doesn’t seem to be much of an incentive to upgrade to the new models, largely since its feature set doesn’t really provide much that is novel. But thanks to these tiny improvements, the Galaxy Watch 6 and Galaxy Watch 6 Classic are now somewhat better. And that might just be enough to convince upgraders who aren’t too thrilled with their current wristwatch or those who are just shopping for their first WearOS-powered wearable to buy the new versions.

Design and Specifications:

  • The Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 features the same style and button layout as the previous generation and has an aluminum body with flat sides. The display is the only thing that stands out, and it has gotten a little bit bigger because Samsung chose to use a smaller bezel this year.
  • It can be very difficult for the average consumer to distinguish between the Galaxy Watch 4, Galaxy Watch 5, and Galaxy Watch 6. This is due to the fact that the design hasn’t changed much over the past two generations, which does cause it to get a touch stale in its third year.
  • The Galaxy Watch 6 Classic, on the other hand, appears a little bit renewed after taking a year off. Last year, Samsung made the decision to forego the Classic model in favor of the new Pro model. There is a difference in the target market for the Pro and the new Classic. The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is still the model with the largest battery between this year and last year, making it a strong rival to Apple’s Watch Ultra variant. With the exception of a longer battery life and a titanium case, it did not offer many more functions above the normal Galaxy Watch 5 model.
  • Samsung’s replacement for Apple’s digital crown, the rotating bezel, is a prominent feature of the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic. It performed as predicted during the testing period and is essentially what separates the two versions.
  • Both variants include two physical buttons with programmable functions. Both watches’ quality and polish were satisfactory, but I preferred the ordinary Galaxy Watch 6’s band since it is softer and less rigid than the one on the Classic model, which makes it more comfortable to wear. But because the 20mm straps on both watches are the same, I was able to easily switch straps between the two watches without any issues. I did not find the Classic’s large 47mm case to be unpleasant while I was sleeping.

Special Features:

  • What’s fascinating about the Classic’s design is how Samsung was able to reduce the width of that rotating bezel while still fitting in a display that is larger than the ones on both the older Galaxy Watch 4 Classic and the more recent Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. Compared to earlier models, this slim bezel makes the stainless steel casing look cleaner and more modern. Another thing to note is the dual tone finish, which combines polished and brushed stainless steel and has a really luxurious appearance.
  • This year, there are similarities in the specs between the regular and Classic models. The same 5nm Exynos W930 processor is used in both devices, however they have 500 MB more RAM than the previous variants, for a total of 2 GB. The watch is stuffed full of sensors, including an accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, heart rate monitor, temperature sensor (for skin temperature), barometer, and a 3D hall sensor that determines the position of the revolving bezel.

Prices and Variants:

Two variants of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 series are offered. The base model is known as the Galaxy Watch 6, and it is still offered in the same 40mm and 44mm case sizes as the Galaxy Watch 5. Priced at Rs. 29,999 and Rs. 32,999, respectively, for Bluetooth versions, and Rs. 33,999 and Rs. 36,999 for cellular versions.

Another option is the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic, which comes in 43mm and 47mm case sizes. The prices for the Bluetooth and cellular versions are respectively Rs. 36,999 and Rs. 39,999 and Rs. 40,999 and Rs. 43,999.

In comparison to what Apple has to offer, Samsung’s finish options continue to feel extremely constrained. The Galaxy Watch Classic is available in Silver and Black, while the Galaxy Watch 6 includes options for Silver and Graphite cases. I received the 44mm Graphite Galaxy Watch 6 and the 47mm Silver Galaxy Watch 6 Classic for review.
