Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 3 has a lot to offer, not the least of which is its superb and innovative rotating bezel that makes it simple to quickly spin through apps, notifications, music and more. It has two sizes, two finishes, three colors and 50,000 plus watch faces with military grade durability. Also it provides water resistance.

You can get there using the on-screen menus as well, but the bezel brings an immediacy to the Galaxy Watch you don’t get in most other smartwatches. It runs the awesome Tizen operating system and has a wealth of health and fitness features like automatic exercise identification.

You also get built-in storage for playing music when you work out and a large library of workout apps. Integrated sleep and menstrual tracking help you manage other aspects of health.
