Samsung took the stage yesterday at the Galaxy Unpacked event to unveil a number of new devices. One of these was the Galaxy Watch 4, Samsung’s first smartwatch with a 5nm chipset and One UI based on Wear OS.
The Galaxy Watch 4 brings a modern and sleek look with a rubber band and what the company calls a “digital bezel”. It comes in two different sizes, 44mm and 40mm, and both of them have a pixel density of 330 PPI.
According to Samsung, the smartwatch has been designed for health-conscious people since it is loaded with plenty of health features and a redesigned 3 in 1 sensor. The bioactive sensor on the back of the watch can measure PPG, ECG, and BIA to assess blood flow, heart rate, and body composition.
Sleep management has also improved with snoring detection and continuous blood and oxygen tracking through your sleep.
Now that One UI is based on Wear OS, more than 100 fitness activities can be extended to other Samsung devices like the Samsung TV. One UI can also sync DnD, blocked callers, and alarms from your phone. If you install an app on your Samsung phone which is compatible with the watch, it will automatically be installed on the watch as well.
There are several gestures on board as well, such as a nod to confirm the call, shake to decline, and a knock-knock for a custom function.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is powered by the Exynos W920, Samsung’s latest 5nm chip for wearables. This comes alongside 1.5GB RAM, 16GB storage, and 4G connectivity. The battery capacity is 361 mAh and it is good for 40 hours of use on a single charge. It can be charged up to 100% in only 2 hours.
The Galaxy Watch 4 will be available in Black, Silver, and Green colors for $250.
