Are Samsung, Apple and just about every other smartwatch manufacturer lying? Companies underestimate the thickness of their watches

Published

It seems that today the “conspiracy” of smart watch manufacturers was accidentally revealed. Of course, there is no real conspiracy, but still, many manufacturers of such devices, as it turned out, are cunning or even outright lying about some of the specifications of their products.

Are Samsung, Apple and just about every other smartwatch manufacturer lying?  Companies underestimate the thickness of their watches

We are talking about weight and size indicators. The author of the channel DC Rainmaker found that Samsung very much underestimates the thickness and weight of the new Watch5. As a result, it turned out that not only Samsung does this.

But let’s start with her. According to the company’s website, the 44mm version of the Watch5 is supposed to be 9.8mm thick and weigh 33.5g. In fact, the watch weighs 55g and the case is 13mm thick! The Watch5 Pro is supposedly 10.5 mm thick, but in fact it is almost 50% larger (15.1 mm)!

Interestingly, if you remove the strap, then the mass of the watch itself will turn out to be exactly the same as it is indicated on the site. That is, we can say that in this case, Samsung is not lying. Moreover, the site has a postscript stating that the mass does not take into account the strap, but why would anyone need a mass of watches without a strap? In addition, such a focus will no longer work with the thickness – it is simply indicated incorrectly.

But the highlight is that the author decided to check the watches of other brands, and it turned out that this is the norm. In particular, Apple, Garmin and Polar also underestimate the thickness of their watches, which seems to be the norm. Although there are exceptions: Fitbit and Wahoo indicate the parameters correctly. It seems that companies just measure the thickness each in their own way. For example, Samsung apparently measures only the thickness of the side edge, while Apple and Garmin do not take into account the lower protrusion with sensors. A similar situation has long been the norm in the car market: automakers measure the clearance as they want, and it very rarely corresponds to the actual minimum distance from the lowest point of the car (excluding wheels) to the road.
