If that wasn’t enough, there’s also a detailed street map that can help any tourist feel more at home. It can be accessed simply by tapping the screen.
Not wanting to neglect the gym rats, Samsung went all out with the Sport watch face. This theme sports a stop watch at 3 o’clock & a speedometer at 9. There are also side-by-side heart rate & calories burned displays. Users also get easy access to My Journey to track their runs & rides.
