Fall symbolizes back to school, no matter how long ago you may have graduated. This year, you’re going to need more than a solid backpack and fresh kicks to keep on track. Samsung has you covered with innovative tech — whether you’re working from home, heading back to school or simply want to get a leg up on those fitness goals you’ve been putting off over the past few months.
Below we’ve rounded up the Samsung Galaxy gear you’ll want to kick-start the year.
Sleek, smart & on time
With calculator watches being a thing of the past, smart watches are essential accessories for all students. Life is busy, whether you are running off to class, hitting a workout or meeting up with friends, the Galaxy Watch3 will help keep you on time and organized.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch3 is our top recommendation this fall; it has all the features you need to help you stay engaged and connected without sacrificing on style.
Built like a luxury timepiece with stainless steel and high-quality leather, Galaxy Watch3 seamlessly fuses elegance and comfort. As with earlier generations, the Galaxy Watch3 offers you thousands of customization, with a large variety of watch faces to choose from in the Galaxy Store or the opportunity to design your own. You can even match your Galaxy Watch3 with your outfit, making it a great back to school (or work) accessory. Plus, a library of forty different watch face options enables a customized interface.
Staying on top of your readings is essential, but maintaining your fitness and wellness is also vital to acing the whole school thing. When you’ve hit a roadblock and need a break, the Galaxy Watch3 is ready to join you as a fitness partner1. You can link to Samsung Health, where you’ll have access to more than 120 exercise video, so you’llbe motivated to crush your next workout. Pick your favourite class, cast it on to your Samsung Smart TV2 with your Galaxy Note20 5G and your Galaxy Watch3 will take care of the rest – tracking your workout, monitoring your heart rate3 and keeping you connected with motivating tunes. The Galaxy Watch3 makes it easier to work out and will even track your heart rate in real time.
You can connect seamlessly between the Galaxy Watch3 and other Galaxy devices, including the Galaxy Note20 Series 5G. This helps keep you connected and offers innovative features such as setting automatic reply options for messages and offering images and easy access to emojis and photos directly on your wrist so you don’t miss a beat. It’s super handy when you’re in class and need to respond to mom’s worried texts, or your frantic roommate looking for her keys. You can also control your phone easily from your wrist4 – play music with the rotating bezel, rotate your wrist to mute incoming calls and clench or unclench your fist to receive a call.

Style and function for your listening pleasure
Galaxy Buds Live
First, your must have: earbuds. The new Galaxy Buds Live have been configured with a premium minimalist design so sleek it almost doubles as jewelry. With three ‘mystic’ shades to choose from, these innovatively shaped wireless earbuds fit the natural shape of your ear, delivering an all day comfortable feel and a futuristic look. Pop them in for your virtual lectures, sport them on campus, and easily sync with your Galaxy smartphone to catch up with friends and family on the go. Galaxy Buds Live are also equipped with incredible sound quality.

Another cool feature is the Active Noise Cancellation. It gives you the power to reduce background noise, so you can focus on that important call or audio book with fewer distractions.
Battery life is, of course, essential to keeping you tuned in for whatever your day holds. With Galaxy Buds Live, you can listen non-stop for up to six hours5 and get up to 21 hours6 of life with the charging case (when buds are fully charged). Whether you’re listening to music in the library, on your commute or during workouts, Samsung has you covered so you can worry less about re-charging. Plus, these puppies power up fast – just five quick minutes in the charging case gives you up to one glorious hour7.
And of course, Samsung delivers tech to keep you connected when switching seamlessly between Galaxy devices, such as the Galaxy Watch3 or Galaxy Tab S7+. Use your buds as a wireless microphone when recording video for that upcoming project on the Galaxy Note S20 Series 5G. Or take advantage of the amazing gaming experience, with the Galaxy Note S20 Series 5G dynamic AMOLED 2X display with Game Mode8.
