Both smartwatch models have received the national 3C certification, classifying them as smartwatches (TD-LTE wireless data terminal). This certification ensures compliance with local standards and regulations, confirming that the devices are ready for the Chinese market.

Anticipation is running high for Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked event, scheduled for 9 pm Beijing time on July 10th in Paris, France. In addition to the Galaxy Watch 7 and Watch 7 Ultra, the event will feature the highly anticipated Galaxy Z Fold6 and Galaxy Z Flip6 foldable smartphones, as well as the Galaxy Buds3 series headphones.

The Galaxy Watch 7 series is expected to showcase sleek and modern designs, aligning with Samsung's reputation for stylish and functional devices. Enhanced connectivity features, including WCDMA, LTE, and eSIM support, promise seamless communication experiences.

Battery life is also expected to be a significant highlight. The larger battery capacities in both models, particularly the 590mAh battery in the Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra, aim to provide extended usage time between charges.

Integration with the broader Samsung ecosystem is another key expectation. The new watches are anticipated to work seamlessly with other Samsung devices, including the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold6 and Galaxy Z Flip6 smartphones, as well as the Galaxy Buds3 headphones.

The Galaxy Watch 7 and Watch 7 Ultra have the potential to be a game-changer for Samsung in the smartwatch market.
