New Galaxy Watch4 series update empowers users to reach their goals with enhanced health and wellness features, and express themselves with more personalization than ever before.
Samsung has announced a new update to the Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch4 Classic, continuing its commitment to helping users reach their health and wellness goals and express their personal style. Users can expect new improvements like advanced interval training designed for any cyclist or runner, a new sleep coaching program, and new body composition insights. Galaxy Watch4 users will now have even more ways to customise their look with upgraded watch faces, and a new line of stylish straps, sold separately.
“We understand the growing needs of smartwatch users, and are committed to guiding our Galaxy Watch4 series community on their unique wellness journeys with our latest update,” said Janghyun Yoon, Executive Vice President and Head of Software Platform at Mobile eXperience Business, Samsung Electronics. “We are excited to continue this effort as part of our wider initiative to redefine holistic wellness through expanded experiences and new innovations.”
Motivation To Move
The latest body composition update gives users even more insight into their health progress. Samsung Health will also be providing body composition insights to help users transform their health, fitness and mind-set.
Whether you’re just looking to get active or training for an upcoming race, Samsung’s new interval target feature for runners and cyclists lets them pre-set the duration, distance, and number of sets for their workout. From there, Galaxy Watch4 guides them through a custom intensity training session with a series of high-intensity workouts interspersed with low-intensity workouts, making for an impactful and targeted workout every time.
Work Towards a Better Night’s Sleep
Building on Galaxy Watch4’s robust sleep tracking capabilities, the new sleep coaching program helps users develop better sleep habits. By tracking sleep patterns over seven days and completing two related sleep surveys, the program assigns one of eight sleep symbol animals representing the user’s sleep type. Then, it will guide users through a four to five week coaching program that includes missions, checklists, sleep-related articles, meditation guidance, and regular reports to support users as they work towards improving their sleep quality.
When it comes to waking up refreshed, a peaceful and quiet environment is key to achieving a healthy rest as well. Galaxy Watch4 recognises when users fall asleep and automatically turns off Samsung SmartThings enabled lights to help create better sleeping conditions.
Deeper Insights for a Healthier Heart
Combined with the advanced BioActive Sensor technology and Samsung Health Monitor app Galaxy Watch4 measures both blood pressure and electrocardiogram (ECG), allowing users to monitor their heart health anytime and from anywhere. Since the first introduction in 2020, Samsung Health Monitor app is currently available in 43 markets globally, expanding to 11 more in March, including Canada, Vietnam and South Africa.
Greater Selection of Matching Straps and Watch Faces
The new Galaxy Watch4 update makes the wearable experience even better, from the inside out. Users can further customise their watch face with additional colours and digital clock fonts that make the watch truly their own. Also, new strap colours such as burgundy and cream, and the new fabric band and link bracelet will be available for a more personalised look.
Committed to Expanding Compatibility within the Android Ecosystem
In 2021, Samsung and Google introduced co-developed Wear OS™ Powered by Samsung, bringing smoother connections across Android devices and seamless access to more apps via Google Play including Google Maps, Google Pay, and YouTube Music. Coming soon through an additional update, users will be able to stream music over Wi-Fi or LTE from the YouTube Music app on their Galaxy Watch4. This means that users can leave their phone behind and still enjoy their favourite artists as they work out on-the-go.
Additionally, Google Assistant will be available on Galaxy Watch4 series in the coming months. With access to both Bixby and Google Assistant, consumers will be equipped with advanced voice assistant functionality to meet their various needs. Users can also now install their favourite smartphone apps on their Galaxy Watch4 during initial setup with one tap, creating a seamless experience across devices right out of the box.
