Amazon slashes price of Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 following Prime Day

Andy Boxall/Digital Trends

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 is only a few months old, but you can already grab it for less than the retail price. Immediately following the fun of Amazon Prime Day, Samsung’s latest and most powerful flagship smartwatch has been reduced on Amazon. Grab it from Amazon right now, and you pay just $369, saving $31 on the usual $400.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 is one of our best choices for the best Android smartwatch, and it’s easy to see why. The round design is reminiscent of normal watches, which means you don’t have to be overtly advertising the “smart” part of your smartwatch all the time — and the rotating bezel around the outside of the watch is an innovative and surprisingly useful method of controlling your watch. The display is a sizable 1.4-inch Super AMOLED screen, running a 360 x 360-pixel resolution. It’s crisp and, thanks to Samsung’s peerless screen technology, it’s replete with bright vivid colors and dark, inky blacks.

It has a suite of solid fitness tracking options, including heart rate tracking, sleep tracking, and automatic fall detection. Unlike some other Android smartwatches, it doesn’t run Google’s WearOS. Instead, it uses Samsung’s Tizen software — but that isn’t a downside. While WearOS can still be a little clunky, Tizen has had a chance to mature, and it shows. Using the Galaxy Watch 3 is smooth and easy, though it does mean you’re forced into using Samsung’s apps. Still, it’s an excellent watch, and it shows. The battery life is acceptable, but nothing particularly special, and you’ll probably get two days of use out of it — though if you turn on all the tracking options, including GPS, then expect that to drop significantly.


$31 isn’t a huge discount, but it’s important to keep in mind that this is more-or-less a brand-new product from Samsung, so seeing any discounts on it at all is rather surprising. It’s simply one of the best Android smartwatches you can buy, and if you’ve been wanting to take the plunge, or want to replace a creaky old smartwatch, then this is an excellent option with a decent discount.
