There are rumors that Samsung will announce a new Galaxy Watch 4 at any time, likely alongside upcoming foldable smartphones. But until then, what we will get is a special edition of the current Galaxy device. The Galaxy Watch 3 TOUS edition, a collaboration with the famous Spanish jewelry and accessories brand, is now available in Spain but can also be purchased in the United States. The features are mostly the same, but it is the design of the smartwatch that is modified.
The Galaxy Watch 3 TOUS Edition it uses the 41mm variant of the smartwatch but with a slightly different design. The physical rotating bezel now has a matte texture instead of the ridged edges of the original edition. It also comes with two interchangeable silicone bands in nude and black with the iconic TOUS bear logos embossed on the strap. The smartwatch also comes with various custom watch faces, as well as 18 different wallpapers.
As for the other basic features of the smartwatch, it is still the same Galaxy Watch 3 that we know. You’re connected to your smartphone with Bluetooth 5.0 technology so you can access the most essential functions. This variant is Wi-Fi only, so you need to connect it to a smartwatch for it to work as it should. The Samsung Health app also turns your smartwatch into a health and fitness tracker that includes EKG monitoring, but it’s available in select countries for now.
This is not the first time that Samsung has collaborated with TOUS, as they also released a special edition of the original Galaxy Watch a couple of years ago. If you are a fan of the jewelry brand, you will probably want to get this if you are looking for a new smartwatch. But aside from the design, there doesn’t seem to be anything special about this variant, so you might want to wait for the supposed Galaxy Watch 4.
But if this is your thing, the Galaxy Watch 3 TOUS Edition is available in all TOUS stores in Spain for about $ 495, which is $ 100 more expensive than the original. Those who live elsewhere can also get it at the TOUS online store.
