Last month, Samsung launched Galaxy Watch 3 which brings blood pressure, electrocardiogram (ECG), and blood oxygen saturation measurement as well as fall detection function. Its data stored on the smartphone of the users.
On the other hand, Apple Watch 6 also brings the blood oxygen saturation measurement function, ECG measurement, and handwashing function.
Some features like ECG and irregular heart rate notifications are available in limited regions due to regulatory requirements.
Apple Watch 6 lasts up to 18 hours while the Galaxy Watch 3 brings an average of 56 hours and up to 151 hours of battery life.
Apple Watch Series 6 is more impressive than Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 3 in design, straps, and material. Apple Watch offers you 6 color options including Silver, Space Gray, Gold, Blur, Product Red and Space Black while the Galaxy Watch 3 comes with three color options including Mystic Black, Mystic Silver, and Mystic Bronze.

So, the Apple Watch 6 won this round because it gives a wider range of choices to the consumers.
