Do you like that your smartwatches are as premium feeling and expensive as possible? Then Samsung has a proposal for you as it has just relaunched its latest wearable in one of the most luxurious metals possible.
The watch in question is the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, which came out a month earlier, but was originally only available in stainless steel – that material usually feels pretty good on the wrist, but may not be enough for some people as you can buy that now a version of the watch with a titanium build.
Titanium is a fairly heavy metal, but it is strong and resistant to corrosion, so the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 coated with this material will likely last a long time. The watch strap for the titanium version is also made of metal, to support the heavy body.
In the US, the titanium Galaxy Watch 3 costs $ 599.99 (roughly equivalent to £ 460 / AU $ 820) and will hit stores on October 2. SamMobile claims, meanwhile, that the watch will go on sale in parts of Europe on Sept. 18, although the exact UK price and launch date are unclear.
So it’s not surprisingly more expensive than the standard Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, which costs $ 479 / £ 459 / AU $ 849 for the most expensive variant.
If you think this price is too steep, keep in mind that the recently launched Apple Watch 6 also has a titanium variant available – and it starts at $ 799 / £ 799 / AU $ 1,199. So in comparison, the titanium Galaxy Watch 3 could appear to be quite affordable.
