The Samsung Galaxy Watch6 Classic is the latest and greatest smartwatch from the tech giant, building on the success of its predecessor, the Galaxy Watch5 series

The Galaxy Watch6 Classic has significant upgrades – bringing back the fan-favourite rotating bezel, improved health tracking, and a longer-lasting battery.

The model we're reviewing in particular, the 43mm Bluetooth version, is retailing at RM1,399, while the LTE version is available at RM1,699.

After several weeks of constant use, here's what we had to say about the watch:

Made of stainless steel, the watch has a sleek and stylish design that is both elegant and durable

The rotating bezel on the Galaxy Watch6 Classic is a welcome addition, as it was missing from the previous model. It makes navigating the interface a seamless and intuitive experience, especially when used together with the touchscreen.

The Galaxy Watch6 Classic's hybrid strap is designed to be comfortable to wear all-day long, even during sleep. The inner side of the strap is made of sweat-resistant rubber, which helps to keep the skin dry and comfortable. The outer side of the strap is made of faux leather, again giving it a stylish look and making it more durable.

Of course, the main draw of the smartwatch is its plethora of fitness and health tracking features

These features include heart rate monitoring, Electrocardiogram (ECG), blood pressure monitoring, irregular heart rhythm notification, sleep tracking, stress tracking, body composition tracking, and fall detection.

While the Galaxy Watch6 Classic is not a medical device, it can still be informative in motivating you to stay on track for fitness goals, understanding your sleep patterns, and tracking your stress levels, on top of early detection of health problems through blood pressure and ECG readings.

The smartwatch even tracks workouts, heart rate zones, VO2 max (oxygen consumption during exercise), and recovery time

The Samsung Galaxy Watch6 Classic offers over 90 different workouts to choose from, so you fitness enthusiasts and gym rats are sure to find one that suits your needs and preferences.

For casual users, the step, sleep, and stress tracking features of the Galaxy Watch6 Classic can be helpful for improving your overall health and well-being. Simply looking at the numbers can motivate you to complete your daily step goal, get more quality sleep, or relax when you notice your stress levels are high. These small changes truly make a big difference.

When it comes to battery life, it is designed to keep up with your daily life

Sustaining a battery life of up to 40 hours on a single charge with Always On Display (AOD) off, the Galaxy Watch6 Classic will be with you for a whole day and then some. Even with all the health tracking and AOD on, we found that the watch could last through a night’s sleep and the entirety of the next day.

In our test, we've been ending the day with 30-40% of the battery remaining. The watch takes approximately 2 hours to fully charge from zero.

Whether you're into fitness, or just looking for the smartwatch experience, the Samsung Galaxy Watch6 Classic is a great accessory for all Android users, especially if you're a Samsung smartphone user

While the watch can be used with any Android device, certain functions are just designed to work seamlessly when paired with a Samsung device.

Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Watch6 Classic is a great smartwatch that offers a lot of features for the price. It is a good choice for people who want a stylish and functional watch that can help them track their fitness, health, and well-being.
