With Samsung launching the Galaxy Watch 7 in less than a couple of months, it means we're seeing heavy discounts offered for the existing Galaxy Watch 6 (review). For instance, the standard model is now on sale on Amazon, which has been reduced by 30 percent, dropping it to $189 from $269.

That's the second-best price for the non-cellular 44 mm model of the said Galaxy smartwatch. While the deal applies to the graphite or black colorway of the smartwatch, you can still match and spice it up with third-party wristbands.

Why buying the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 is now worth it

Samsung's Galaxy smartwatches are undoubtedly some of the most feature-packed options in the market. That's true for the Galaxy Watch 6, which has been further upgraded, making it a compelling purchase if you're coming from older models.

The Galaxy Watch 6 keeps the aluminum build of its predecessor, but it has become slightly thinner than before, adding comfort when worn for a longer period. It is military-graded and swim-proof for 50 meters, meaning it would do well for high-speed sports and free diving.

The round display of the smartwatch has gone up to 1.5 inches bigger without the result of added heft or bulk. Plus, the high-resolution panel, which is protected by a sapphire crystal, remains bright and crisp in different conditions.

The health and fitness tracking features are likely the major reasons to buy the Galaxy Watch 6, and the watch surely doesn't fail. It boasts a plethora of tools including continuous heart rate, ECG, blood pressure level monitoring, and skin temperature sensing, among others.

Samsung's Galaxy Watch 6 is also equipped with a faster processor and a bigger RAM, giving a noticeable improvement in navigation and running the apps. Battery capacity has slightly increased as well, but this compensates for the extra power the processor deliver. In the end, you still get a few days of battery life between charges, which is already more than the competition.

What are your thoughts on the Galaxy Watch 6 now that it is heavily discounted? Is it worth now? Let us know in the comments.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.

    I wouldn't touch any new Samsung Watch or ring until Samsung makes their existing technology work.

    Samsung current Galaxy Smart Watch 6 Classic isn't fit for purpose as it can't tell when I'm Sleeping, despite Samsung's unqualified claims of Sleep tracking.

    Despite evidence from my $30 Chinese knock-off and my wife's Apple Watch, Samsung has done nothing to correct the issues with the Sleep tracking.

    I won't buy another Samsung product until they make their current products work.

      Do you think the discrepancies of the sleep tracking data on your Galaxy Watch is notably off compared to the Apple Watch?
