Samsung announced its latest devices at its Samsung Galaxy Unpacked press event yesterday, this included the new Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic smart watches.
These two new smart watches are the first devices to feature the new Wear OS which Samsung and Google developed together.
Galaxy Watch4 is equipped with Samsung’s ground-breaking BioActive Sensor, which boasts a smaller and more compact design that doesn’t detract from measurement accuracy. This new 3-in-1 sensor uses a single chip to precisely run three powerful health sensors — Optical Heart Rate, Electrical Heart and Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis — so users can monitor their blood pressure, detect an AFib irregular heartbeat¹, measure their blood oxygen level, and, for the first time, calculate their body composition. Our all-new Body Composition measurement tool gives users a deeper understanding of their general health and fitness, with key measurements like skeletal muscle, basal metabolic rate, body water and body fat percentage. Now, you can easily check your body composition from your wrist with just two fingers. In about 15 seconds, your watch’s sensor will capture 2,400 data points.
Here are the specifications of the two devices:
