Samsung Galaxy Watch 7: what we want to see

 The Samsung Galaxy Watch 7 and a Galaxy Watch 7 Pro or a Galaxy Watch 7 Classic are expected later this year, and these wearables could be the best smartwatches of the year.

They are, without a doubt, the most likely to cause concern for Apple and its upcoming Apple Watch 10, which is expected to be of the same high quality and packed with health and fitness features.

We haven't heard much about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 7 line yet, but below you'll find all the reliable rumors and leaks we have heard, as well as an educated guess as to when these watches will be available and a wish list of our top priorities.


The Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 was released in the middle of August last year, while the Galaxy Watch 5 was released in the middle of August the year before and was released in the late August. The Galaxy Watch 4 was released the year before.

Therefore, based on previous behavior, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 7 will almost certainly be released in August. Additionally, it is likely that it will either be announced in August or in late July.

As is customary, it will most likely be unveiled concurrently with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 and the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6.

The price of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 7 has not yet been disclosed, but the Galaxy Watch 6 starts at $299.99, which is equivalent to £289 or AU$549. Therefore, we anticipate that the Galaxy Watch 7 will cost at least that much, with prices rising for LTE and larger sizes.

There is a good chance that we will also see a Samsung Galaxy Watch 7 Pro or Watch 7 Classic, which is likely to cost at least as much as the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Classic—more than $399.99, or £369, or AU$699.


The South Korean website New Daily claims that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 7 will feature a brand-new 3nm (nanometer) chipset. Although there aren't many leaks yet,

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 has a 5nm chipset, so smaller numbers are better here. It's interesting to note that even the Samsung Galaxy S24 line only uses 4nm chipsets; consequently, the Galaxy Watch 7 may, in a sense, surpass Samsung's top smartphones.

This does not imply that it will be more powerful; by their very nature, wearable chipsets are not as powerful as chipsets used in smartphones. However, it may represent a significant power increase in comparison to the Galaxy Watch 6 and may also be more power efficient, which may result in improved battery life.

In addition, PCMag has been informed by Samsung that new Classic and Pro models will be released on alternate years. To put it another way, since the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Classic was released last year, we can expect to see a Samsung Galaxy Watch 7 Pro alongside the standard model this year.

Despite lacking the rotating bezel of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Classic, this Pro model may be better suited to outdoor enthusiasts thanks to its potentially larger battery, rugged construction, and outdoor-specific features.


Even though we don't know much about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 7 at this time, we do know what we want from it, which includes the following.

1. Better battery life

Although neither the Galaxy Watch 6 nor the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic has a bad battery life, neither model consistently lasts more than a day, so they still need to be charged fairly frequently. That's even more frustrating because sleep tracking is a big part of them, so you should wear them all the time.

Therefore, we desire an increase in the battery life of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 7. That could be tricky because there isn't enough room for a bigger battery, but Samsung could make the device more efficient, especially if it has a new chipset, as has been rumored.

2. No need for a Samsung phone

A Galaxy Watch can technically be used with almost any Android phone, but some of its features require a Samsung phone.

You won't be able to take advantage of some of the wearable's more advanced health features because of these, such as the ECG and blood pressure monitoring.

If you don't have a Samsung phone, this makes these wearables much less appealing, and once you buy one, you might feel like you're locked into Samsung's ecosystem (which is probably the idea). We would prefer that every feature of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 7 be supported by every recent Android phone because this approach is not very user-friendly.

3. A rotating bezel on at least one model

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Classic, for example, has a rotating bezel, which is one of our favorite features on a Galaxy Watch. It looks good and feels much better than a digital bezel.

However, there was no model with a rotating bezel in the Galaxy Watch 5 line, so it's possible that the Galaxy Watch 7 line won't either. This is especially true given a rumor that says Samsung will launch a Pro model rather than a Classic model this year.

Therefore, we hope that at least one of the Galaxy Watch 7 models will feature a rotating bezel.

4. Both Pro and Classic options

In a similar vein, we'd like to see a Galaxy Watch 7 Pro as well as a Classic model. This way, not only is a rotating bezel almost guaranteed, but there is also a Pro model with stylings that are more outdoorsy for those who value that over the Classic model's classy, chunky design.

A newer version of both the Pro and Classic lines would be desirable because they cater to different audiences and use cases.

5. More storage

You only get 16GB of storage on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 and Galaxy Watch 6 Classic, whereas competitors like the Google Pixel Watch 2 have 32GB and the Apple Watch 9 have 64GB.

Although smartwatches do not require as much storage as smartphones, having more storage does allow for the installation of additional apps, watch faces, and music. We'd like to see at least 32GB of storage in the Samsung Galaxy Watch 7 because Samsung is a long way behind its main competitors in this area.
