The Galaxy Watch 3 was a strong mix of fitness and health features and a lot of smartwatch connectivity. But Samsung's Tizen OS and app store always stayed apart from Google's Android ecosystem. The Galaxy Watch 4 has much of the same design and features as last year's watch, but with more health sensor tech. The OS is the Big New Thing, though.



The Watch4, which comes in 40- and 44-mm sizes, and the Watch4 Classic, which you can get in 42 or 46 mm. Internally, they're pretty similar and they both have bright OLED displays, but the designs are different. The Watch4 is minimalist, whereas the Classic is more traditional and sporty. All the sizes share 20-mm silicone straps, but it's easy to swap out for a design of your own choosing. 

The Classic is made of stainless steel, so it's more durable than the aluminum Watch4. It also retains the popular mechanical rotating bezel, so you can physically move the edge around the screen to scroll through the interface on the watch. The Watch4 sticks with a digital bezel that accomplishes the same thing, like on the Galaxy Watch Active series, but it doesn't have the satisfying, tactile click as you wheel through menus. 


Exynos W920-powered smartwatch.

The Galaxy Watch 4 features Samsung’s new Exynos W920 chipset. This is the first 5nm chipset to be used in a Samsung smartwatch. It delivers 1.25x and up to 10x gains in CPU and GPU performance respectively.The new model also has 1.5x the RAM at 1.5GB and double the storage at 16GB compared to last year’s watch.Samsung and Google have done a great job of optimizing Wear OS for this Exynos W920-powered smartwatch. There’s an obvious benefit to using Android. Galaxy Watch 4 owners can now access the vast library of Android apps. Google Maps is finally available on Samsung watches and so are many other useful apps.



On the display front, the Galaxy Watch 4 (40mm) and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic (42mm) both feature 1.2-inch AMOLED displays with a 396x396 pixels resolution. The Galaxy Watch 4 (44mm) and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic (46mm), on the other hand, come with 1.4-inch (450x450 pixels) AMOLED displays. In both display sizes, you will get Gorilla Glass DX protection.

 The Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic run on OneUI Watch based on the latest version of Google’s Wear OS. This means users will now be able to use Google ‘s redesigned smartwatch apps and services directly like Maps, Play Store, etc. along with other Samsung and third-party apps as well.



Samsung is using a new 3-in-1 health sensor on the Galaxy Watch 4 that sits much closer to the skin than individual sensors for more accurate readings. Many of the health and fitness features that you’ve come to expect from its watches are already present.


Health is a major focus for the Galaxy Watch, and as such Samsung Health is now expanded with new stress management and breathing features, as well as a collection of 21 indoor exercises and 39 tracked workouts.

 Samsung has put in a BioActive Sensor which basically integrates all the essential sensors you would find on a smartwatch like optical heart rate, electrical heart rate, and bioelectrical impedance analysis sensor.There are advanced sleep management features as well like snoring detection, continuous SpO2 tracking, etc. You can of course measure your ECG and blood pressure levels as well using the watch.

 The small and large models of the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic feature a 247mAh and 361mAh battery respectively. There is no improvement here compared to the Galaxy Watch 3.Samsung claims the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic can last up to 40 hours on a single charge 


The Samsung Galaxy Watch is the best smartwatch Samsung has ever made. It's more attractive than previous incarnations, and comes packing some neat new fitness tracking abilities, making for a compelling package.There’s no denying the fact that the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic are genuinely good options for anyone considering an Android-based smartwatch. Even if they don’t use a Samsung phone. There is no doubt in my mind that these deserve a place on the list of Best Samsung Watches  ever made.
