Samsung’s 2019 Galaxy Wearables: Galaxy Buds, Galaxy Watch Active, Galaxy Fit

Samsung has introduced the Galaxy Buds, built in partnership with AKG. With improvements to sound quality, the Buds have adaptive dual microphones that intelligently analyses environmental noise to enhance voice for calls.

An outer microphone intelligently analyses ambient noise, while the inner microphone picks up sound waves travelling internally in your body for greater clarity and environmental noise reduction.

With 6 hours of battery life, the buds come with a charging case that adds another 7 hours. It also supports wireless charging, which means it is able to be charged wirelessly on the rear of the S10 with Wireless Powershare. Quick charging gives the Buds 1.7 hours with a 15-minute quick charge.

The Galaxy Buds pair seamlessly with Samsung’s Galaxy devices, instantly promting users to set up the accessories upon opening – much like Apple’s AirPods. This UI enhancement also spills over into other areas, like call forwarding and usage of the Bixby assistant.

The Buds can be controlled with Bixby for adjusting volume, ambient noise and track navigation.

The Galaxy Buds will be available March 8th at USD 128. They will retail in Singapore at SGD 238.

Along with the S10 and the Galaxy Buds, Samsung has also launched the Galaxy Watch Active and Fit.

The Galaxy Watch Active is lighter, thinner and more comfortable. With a wide variety of bands, watch faces and elements, the Active Watch is highly customisable and stylish.

At 23 grams, the Galaxy Fit and Fit e has full touch capabilities on an AMOLED screen. It is able to display essential information at a glance, while lasting a week on a single watch. 

Both devices can recognise six different exercises, with manual tracking for dozens of others. 

Sleep tracking on both devices can track the different stages of sleep including REM and deep sleep, along with stress tracking and management for greater long-term wellbeing.

Designed with seamlessness in mind, the Galaxy Buds, along with the other wearables now immediately pair with Samsung’s smart devices without any menu diving. 

The Galaxy Watch Active starts at SGD 368 and will be available in in Black, Rose Gold and Silver. The 42mm Galaxy Watch LTE comes in at SGD 548 and is available in Midnight Black, Rose Gold. The 46mm version of the Galaxy Watch LTE  is available in Silver and comes in at SGD 598.
