Pulse oximeter sensorYour blood oxygen level is a measurement how much oxygen is reaching your muscles. It is important because low levels mean that you will become easily fatigued during exercise. The more exercise you do, the better your blood oxygen levels will become.

A smartwatch can be a great companion in terms of health and wellness: depending on the model, it may remind you to stay active, give that much-needed push to keep up with the ideal daily water intake, track your sleeping patterns, and even offer relaxation exercises. However, choosing a smartwatch that goes with your style is only part of the challenge.

Before buying any kind of wearable, you must make sure that it’s compatible with your smartphone and that it caters to your individual needs. If you’re a loyal Samsung user, then you’ve at least narrowed down your search a bit, but there’s still more to compare when looking for the best of the best.

Display

Aside from the processor and a few other features, the most significant difference when comparing Samsung watches will be the display size and type. Most of the top Samsung watches now use super AMOLED screens, which use advancing OLED technology to integrate the touch function into the screen. Aside from the type of screen, be sure to take a look at the screen size. Not everybody wants a bigger screen, but larger screens make it easier to navigate and view incoming calls, messages, etc.

RAM

As is the case with many devices, RAM is a good measure of a Samsung watch’s performance. Top Samsung watches now have over 1GB of RAM powering the device, translating into faster processing of data and overall faster user experience. If you use your smartwatch for health and fitness tracking, more RAM will allow you to open apps quickly and switch between them to generate reports and track progress.

Features

Not all Samsung watches come loaded with the same features, so be sure to make a list of which are most important to you. Models such as the Samsung Galaxy Watch come with a stroke counter for swimming, for example. Heart rate monitors, GPS, and a compass are all pretty standard, as are measuring distance, calories, and pace.

Charging

From wireless charging to fast charging, how you can charge your smartwatch is essential in searching for the right one for you. While most Samsung watches now support wireless charging, you’ll need to ensure that the wireless charger you’re using will charge that specific model of watch. When it comes to Samsung wireless chargers, you have two main options: the Wireless Charger Stand or the Wireless Charger Duo. If you purchase a third-party wireless charging dock, you’ll need to ensure it’s compatible with your watch.

Battery life

When measuring the battery life of top Samsung watches, be sure to look at battery power. It represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life. Then, take a look at the battery life in hours under everyday use, and the battery life with GPS activated.
