Reshaping the smartwatch experience, the Galaxy Watch4 & Galaxy Watch4 Classic are the latest innovation in wearable tech. 

Put your health & wellness in your hands (and on your wrist) with Samsung's most advanced suite of features yet. The ground-breaking BioActive Sensor uses a single chip to precisely run three powerful health sensors  Optical Heart Rate, Electrical Heart and Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis. Now you can monitor your blood pressure, detect an AFib irregular heartbeat, measure your blood oxygen level, and, for the first time, calculate your body composition. 

The all-new Body Composition measurement tool provides you with a deeper understanding of your general health and fitness, with key measurements like skeletal muscle, basal metabolic rate, body water and body fat percentage. Check your body composition easily from your wrist with just two fingers, and in about 15 seconds, your watch’s sensor will capture 2,400 data points. 

Stay in touch and keep up with your goals by enjoying Group Challenges with your friends and family, or set up a home gym by connecting your Galaxy Watch4 to your compatible Samsung Smart TV, where calorie counts and heartrate metrics appear on screen. When you’re ready to rest, the Galaxy Watch4 series offers the most complete picture of your sleep patterns yet, going more in-depth than ever before. Your phone detects the sound of your snores while your Watch measures your blood oxygen level while you sleep. Together with advanced Sleep Scores, you can learn more about your sleep patterns to get the rest you deserve. 

Wear OS powered by Samsung pairs perfectly with the brand-new One UI Watch for simplicity, ease, and innovation. Compatible apps are automatically downloaded to your Watch when added to your phone, and important settings - like Do Not Disturb hours and blocked callers- are synced instantly. Partnering with Google on Wear OS Powered by Samsung means that a whole host of brilliant apps are now available on your wrist- we're talking Google Maps, Google Pay, Adidas Running, Calm, Strava, and Spotify. Auto Switch ensures your Buds can seamlessly toggle audio between your phone and watchdepending on your usage.

Hi. I'm thinking about buying the watch 4 classic. But I think a couple of questions has not been answered about the device. Especially for runninf and sports usage. Will it support Strava? And will it support a HRM strap? If yes, which ones? And the battery of 40hrs. What does that mean? With GPS/heart rate or just on idle doing nothing? Running 1hr per day +normal usage?

 

Thanks. I think does questions must be answered for the watch for to be a real competition for somebody that's actually going to use it for sports and not just as a expensive step counter.

I pre-ordered the Watch4 to replace my Watch Active (1). Can you tell me if now with a new OS

  • activity tracking finally takes into account the Heart Rate (that it does measure in 5 zones) when giving calorie count with all workouts?
  • there is any way I can add Les Mills workouts so I can use it to track those too (and therefore to no longer use Polar)?
  • the sleep tracking, which is said to have been improved, finally has an alarm that you can schedule to wake you up when you're in a light sleep phase (even if it means waking you up before the time you set the alarm clock to)? This feature used to be available with Jawbone and it was great because it woke you up at a moment where you didn't have trouble waking up. 

Thanks

Does the Galaxy Watch 4 come loaded with Gpay for contactless payments and Google Assistant? Or can they be immediately downloaded from the Google Play Store on launch?

Also, does the watch come with Blood Oxygen Level monitor?

Thanks

No, it's a stripped down version of WearOS apparently. Think I read somewhere that they will be coming at some point though.


My advice comes from being a UK Samsung phone user.
Current Devices:

Samsung S21 Ultra 5G 256Gb > Model: SM-G998B/DS.
Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Classic > Model: SM-R890NZSAEUA.
Samsung Galaxy Buds2 > Model: SM-R177NZKAEUA.

Samsung One Ui 3.1 / Android 11.
