Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 6 falls to an all-time low of $235

We consider Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 6 to be the best option for Android users in our smartwatch buying guide, and it’s now on sale for $235 at Amazon. There’s always a chance we’ll see a better deal on Black Friday, but for now, that’s the lowest price we’ve tracked for the wearable outside of trade-in deals. The discount only applies to the 40mm Graphite model without LTE support, but it’s still $65 cheaper than buying it directly from Samsung and $25 below the previous low we saw earlier this month. If you have larger wrists or want a larger screen, the 44mm version of the wearable is marked down to $280, which is $50 off its MSRP. The 40mm Gold model is also on sale for $250.

We gave the Galaxy Watch 6 a score of 84 in September. It’s not all that different from the Galaxy Watches that preceded it, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Its design remains clean and relatively durable, its interface remains simple enough to navigate, and it continues to offer the usual range of health tracking sensors. What’s new on this model is a slightly brighter and larger OLED display with thinner bezels. There’s also a larger battery, although you shouldn’t expect much more than a day of use from this 40mm model on average (although the 44mm variant should last longer).

In addition to the expected activity and sleep tracking information, the Galaxy Watch 6 can measure your skin temperature overnight, monitor your blood oxygen levels, and notify you if it detects an irregular heart rhythm. It also remains accurate by automatically detecting and recording workouts. All of this runs on Google’s Wear OS 4, and Samsung says the device will get software updates through 2027.

One thing the Galaxy Watch 6 doesn’t have is a rotating bezel for navigating the operating system. For that, you should opt for the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic, which is on sale for $350 and also comes with a sturdier stainless steel case. While we generally like both devices for Android users, they will still perform better when paired with a Samsung phone. Many of the Galaxy Watch 6’s software features will also come to older models, so there’s no need to upgrade if you have a Watch 5. But if you don’t use an iPhone and have been looking to buy your first smartwatch, this is a good entry point.
