Everything you need to know about the Galaxy Watch 4

Apple has dominated the smartwatch market for a long time and still is, but the competition from Samsung in this market is very fierce and for most users, Galaxy watches are the best alternative to the Apple Watch. Is there a change in the Galaxy Watch 4?

Samsung's latest smartwatch may face a big challenge. This is due to the high expectations of users and the emergence of Wear OS watches in partnership with Google.

Looking at the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, we noticed that Samsung has provided everything it can currently offer, both in terms of design and materials, as well as internal specifications.

Design on Galaxy Watch 4

The new Samsung watch is based on the usual Galaxy Watch design. Samsung has been committed to the circular design for many years. It is this design that makes the watch more traditional. It differs from the peculiar design of the Apple Watch.

Speaking of the more robust classic version, it comes with a stainless steel case available in 42mm and 46mm sizes. In the classic version, Samsung offers the same moving circular edges as the previous versions of the series.

This was back when it made the default bezels available on the regular version of the Watch 4. Samsung uses rubber bands on both versions, but the materials and build quality are different.

Based on the reviews of users who have tried it, the new Samsung Watch is comfortable to wear all day long without any problem.


The Galaxy Watch 4 is unique in terms of manufacturing materials and provides the user with everything a smartwatch could need. In general, we cannot fully describe the design changes between the Galaxy Watch 3 and 4.

The biggest change is the operating system. As mentioned earlier, Samsung is ditching Tizen in exchange for Wear OS 3 co-developed by Google and Amazon.

As we all know Tizen was much better than Wear OS in previous years. Now we can theoretically assume that Samsung has integrated its system into that of Google.

Samsung refers to its watch operating system as One Watch UI, which means that Samsung Wear has changed OS 3 to the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, just as it did with Android on smartphones.

Of course, users have to spend a few minutes tweaking the settings of the smartwatch before they can actually use it. Especially since some parameters (eg "alarm boost") don't work by default.

We can say that the new Wear OS 3 is very close to Samsung's Tizen. Given that this is the same Samsung Watch, that's to be expected. As mentioned earlier, he made some fundamental changes to the system.

In general, the user experience of the new Samsung watch is very good, because it has a large 1.4-inch screen with a resolution of 450 * 450 pixels, Super AMOLED, 46 mm in the larger version and 369 * 369 pixels. The smaller version is 1.2 inches.

Help and Application

The main advantage of the new Samsung watches is the high level of integration with the Android operating system. Unable to access Google apps and services due to old clock.

But with Wear OS 3, the new watch has the Play App Store and can access hundreds of apps that will be greatly improved in the coming months to make services available to users of the new Samsung Watch.

Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic users can access Google apps such as Google Maps, Google Fit, and Google Pay. Along with other special apps from Samsung Watch users.

In addition to Google services and the app itself, the Play Store also contains core apps like Spotify, Outlook, music, and general navigation apps.

Health and exercise in Galaxy Watch 4

The new Samsung watch offers built-in functions as well as health and exercise monitoring functions. The South Korean giant is using a new sensor called Samsung BioActive in its new generation of watches.

The sensor can track AIB and EKG at the same time and can be used as a PPG heart rate sensor. It is the strong support for timing algorithms and software technology.

The new BIA watch can measure body composition including fat percentage, muscle percentage, BMI, body water level, etc. This is the first time we've seen the job.

In terms of sports, the new watch relies on Samsung's Health app on one side and Google's Fit Tiles app on the other. The watch supports GPS navigation technology and can be used to track your running or walking distance.

Battery performance and consumption

The new Samsung clock is based on a single processor, the Samsung Exynos W920, which offers a clock frequency of 1.18 GHz based on two cores. Except for 1.5 GB of RAM. The watch also supports Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, no problem.

Galaxy Watch 4 Classic is equipped with a battery with a capacity of 361 mAh and a size of 46 mm. This capacity allows the watch to withstand up to a day and a half or two. Charging the watch to 100% takes about an hour and a half.

In the smaller version, the battery is smaller and has a shorter life, so we can assume that the watch does not offer a long battery life, which is normal for its functions and features, just like the Apple Watch.
