The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 has a familiar feel to it. But it’s also unique, and I mean that in the best possible manner. It has the same appearance as the Galaxy Watch. But it is sharper and more complex. Although the software is similar to Tizen. The new Google Wear OS platform is more practical and precise. For its current lineup, Samsung dropped the ‘Active’ moniker in favor of a sporty-looking Galaxy Watch 4 as the company’s flagship and a ‘Classic’ version that retains the sumptuous features of last year’s Samsung Galaxy Watch 3.

- The watch comes in three in one health sensor
The Galaxy Watch 4 comes with a three-in-one health sensor that can measure heart rate, take ECGs. And assess body composition – it’s the first big wristwatch to have bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA). The Galaxy Watch 4 is without a doubt the best smartwatch available for Samsung smartphone users.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 comes in two models, each with a revamped frame that allows for a seamless transition from the smartwatch chassis to the straps. Instead of a single protruding round crown accompanied by a flush side button. The uniform pair of crown buttons has an oblong shape. Despite these minor differences. The Galaxy Watch 4 pays homage to previous Galaxy Watch models. The rotating bezel comes standard on the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. Which serves as a useful navigation tool as well as an amazing fidget spinner. Since the launch of the first Samsung Galaxy Watch, the bezel has become as synonymous with the device as the S Pen is — or was? — with the Galaxy Note smartphone.
Wearing pros and cons
The software on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is by far the best I’ve ever had with Wear OS. The Galaxy Watch 4 doesn’t falter. Despite the fact that smartwatches running the outdated Wear OS have previously misled me. Performing perfectly at first until faults emerge. I’ll admit that the software still has a Tizen-like feel to it, but that’s a good thing. It didn’t take long for me to find my stride, allowing me to easily flip between programs, menus, and settings pages. The rotating tiles are clear Tizen relics, and Samsung Pay and Samsung Health continue to take precedence. Aside from that, Google’s new app cloud (which looks a lot like watchOS, but who cares? it’s convenient) is jam-packed with Google’s apps.
Body composition analysis
For the Galaxy Watch 4, Samsung created a new health sensor. It’s a 3-in-1 sensor that combines heart rate monitoring (PPG), an electrocardiogram reader (ECG), and bioelectric impedance analysis (BIA) for a sensor that’s closer to the skin than the previous Galaxy Watch’s individual health sensors.
