Samsung has launched the new Galaxy Watch 7, Watch Ultra and new Buds. The Samsung accessories were presented during Galaxy Unpackedthis Wednesday (10), and they promise to intensify the competition.

The new Galaxy Buds 3 and Buds 3 Pro arrive with a completely new look. As for watches, the highlight is the Galaxy Watch Ultra, a more powerful version of the line.

New Galaxy Watch 7 and Watch Ultra: what’s different?

Samsung’s new smartwatches bring important updates. The Galaxy Watch 7 has a rounded, more traditional look, similar to the last generation. It is available in two sizes: the 44mm comes in green and silver, and the 40mm comes in green and cream. They weigh 33.8g and 28.8g respectively.

The screen of both sizes has sapphire crystal as protection. In the 44mm version, it is 1.5 inches, and in the 40mm it is 1.3 inches.

Among the highlights of the new generation is the new Exynos W100 processor, which has 5 cores and is produced in 3 nanometer lithography. One of these cores is focused on performance, to speed up activities on watches.

With the new processor, Samsung promises longer battery life, reaching up to 30% efficiency gains. The updated hardware also promises three times better CPU performance. The 40mm Galaxy Watch 7 has a 300 mAh battery, while the 44mm has a 425 mAh battery.

They also arrive with more resources focused on artificial intelligence, and the Exynos W100 should ensure that these activities are faster. The watches themselves will be able to analyze the context of incoming messages, for example, and then suggest quick, more humanized responses. This feature could even work with WhatsApp.

Another highlight is the dual-frequency GPS. According to Samsung, it should be 20% more accurate and is available on all models announced now. The new Watches also come with the new BioActive 2 sensor. Samsung explains that it has 13 LEDs and is now in a “cross” shape. This change should bring more accuracy to measurements.

Still about Galaxy AI, watches will be able to better understand the context of physical activities and promise not to “lose” metricssuch as in water activities. This feature should correct, for example, possible reading problems.

The new Galaxy Watch 7 and Watch Ultra also feature a feature called Energy Score, which is also available on the Galaxy Ring. It collects data from seven metrics, including sleep, exercise, heart rate, and more. This allows them to determine how the user can best use their energy.

Another cool tool is the arrival of sleep apnea detection. The data is displayed in Samsung’s health app, but the feature is still undergoing an approval process in Brazil. The cool part is that this tool was developed exactly in our country.

Regarding physical exercise, Samsung also introduced a function for you to “compete against yourself”. The idea is to collect data for 14 days, and then the watches create goals for you to surpass your performances in exercises such as running and cycling, for example.

Watch Ultra: the most robust version

The Galaxy Watch Ultra is already a more direct competitor to the Apple Watch Ultra. In fact, many people found its design to be similar. This model has a more square case, but its screen itself is rounded.

This new Samsung watch focuses on durability, battery and artificial intelligence. It comes in a single size, 47mm, with a 1.5-inch screen, and is constructed from titanium instead of aluminum.

Available in gray, silver, and white, it also comes with a sapphire crystal display and similar hardware to the Watch 7. All of the new watches come with Google’s WearOS operating system, under the One UI 6 for watches. All of the new watches come with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

Samsung quotes that The Galaxy Watch Ultra’s battery can last up to 100 hours in power saving mode. It has the largest battery capacity, with 590 mAh.

In addition to carrying all the new software features, the Ultra model is also resistant to seawater (up to 100 meters), has IP68 and is military certified to withstand high temperatures and altitudes. The idea is, precisely, to make it usable in more extreme situations. Thus, it can even be used for ocean swimming, as explained by the company, or for climbing.

The Ultra also has an emergency siren that reaches up to 86 dB and can be heard up to 180 meters away. This feature can be activated in the event of a fall, for example, but can also be activated manually.

New earbuds: Galaxy Buds 3 and Buds 3 Pro

Samsung also announced the new Galaxy Buds 3 and Buds 3 Pro, its headphones with a completely different look. They have practically nothing to do with previous generations, and now carry sharper rods and lines.

To differentiate them is simple: the Galaxy Buds 3 Pro has that in-ear tip and an LED strip on the stem, while the Buds 3 has a more classic feel and does not have the “rubber” on the tips.

With the change in the design of the headphones themselves, their boxes have also been revamped. They now have a transparent lid, and the fit is also new because of the rods. The only thing left to know is whether Samsung will keep the accessories, such as the Poké Ball, for the new models.

Galaxy Buds 3 Pro

The two new headphones arrive with features like IP67 certification against water and dust, new equalizer and active noise cancellation (ANC) system. And there are also new gestures. On the stems, you can use the “pinch” command or slide your finger to increase or decrease the volume, for example.

The Buds 3 Pro model has more advanced features. It has a battery life of up to 30 hours with noise cancellation disabled or up to 26 hours with the feature active. With a single charge, it can reach up to 6 hours of operation using noise cancellation. The Buds 3 battery lasts up to 30 hours with ANC off or up to 24 hours with ANC on.

But there is also a difference in sound between them. The Buds 3 Pro arrives with 24-bit, 96kHz Hi-Fi audio, as well as featuring dual sound drivers. So it has dual speakers and amplifier.

The Buds 3 Pro is also the only one with features like adaptive noise cancellation, which adjusts the system according to the environment, and has the function of detecting voices for when you start a conversation with someone. Interpreter mode should also only be available in this model, in addition to voice commands, which will arrive first in English and Korean.
