It wasn’t just phones and speakers that Samsung was unveiling last week. It also produced a new smartwatch – the Galaxy. Samsung has made a conscious decision for the Tizen-based watch to look like a traditional timepiece, even down to a tick. But it does everything you’d expect from a full featured smartwatch – heart rate monitoring, tethering with your phone for noticifications, and it can also be used independently of the phone if you go for the LTE version. It is available in 42mm or 46mm versions, with black and rose gold options, or silver for the 46mm. The most important thing? Samsung says a single charge will last several days. samsung.com
