What about the regular Watch? Will they release a Galaxy Watch 2?


I’m intrigued. How does it measure how far the ball goes given all the variables of wind direction and wind speed plus how well the person strikes the ball. Unless there’s a sensor on the ball, I can’t imagine it being very accurate.
