Samsung is gearing up to launch its next-generation smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch 7 series. Although various leaks have circulated, detailed specifics are still under wraps. Here are the top three features we can look forward to in the upcoming models.

1. Huge battery life up to 6 days

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 (available for purchase at BestBuy) features a 425 mAh battery that typically lasting just over a day under standard usage conditions. This necessitates frequent recharging, which can be inconvenient for users, particularly given the emphasis on sleep tracking—a key feature requiring the watch to be worn continuously.

For the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Watch 7, an improvement in battery longevity would be highly beneficial. While physical constraints limit the potential for a larger battery, enhancing the device's overall efficiency could be a viable solution.

This enhancement might be achieved with a new, more efficient chipset, particularly for the Pro version, which could feature a battery capacity of up to 600 mAh as rumored. The aim would be to provide users with a more seamless 24/7 wearable experience without the frequent need for recharging.

2. More storage

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 and Galaxy Watch 6 Classic come with 16GB of internal storage, which is considerably less than what some of its competitors offer. Although smartwatches generally do not require as much storage as smartphones, having more storage allows users to install a greater number of apps, watch faces, and music tracks directly onto the device. This can significantly enhance the user experience by providing more customization options and offline functionality.

To remain competitive and meet user expectations, it would be advantageous for Samsung to equip the Galaxy Watch 7 with at least 32GB of storage. This upgrade would enable the device to better accommodate the growing number of applications and media files that users might want to store on their smartwatch.

3. Expanding beyond the Samsung’s ecosystem

While the Samsung Galaxy Watch can technically be paired with most phones, certain advanced features, such as ECG and blood pressure monitoring, are exclusive to Samsung smartphones. This limitation restricts access to some of the more sophisticated health functionalities of the wearable, making it significantly less attractive to users without a Samsung phone.

This approach can make users feel locked into Samsung’s ecosystem once they purchase the watch, which is not particularly consumer-friendly. Ideally, we would like to see all features of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 7 supported across all recent Android phones, enhancing its appeal and usability for a broader range of users.
