Built for the next era of the smartwatch experience, the Galaxy Watch4 Series is the latest line of Galaxy smartwatches with a suite of advanced features to fit you and your lifestyle. With a variety of straps and customizable watch faces, as well as a host of diverse features and apps to choose from, you can personalize your Galaxy Watch4 Series to be just as unique as you are. But it doesn’t stop there. Galaxy Watch4 users can now take customization to the next level with a new software update.[1]


Here is a look at some of the new features coming to the Galaxy Watch4 Series:


Your Watch Face, Exactly How You Want It

With four new faces to choose from, you can see the information you tend to check the most with just a glance at your wrist.


If you’re committed to smashing your fitness goals – or just want to keep an eye on your fitness stats – you can customize the new Info Brick watch face with your favourite stats from heart rate and stress[2], to your daily activity status. Or, you can choose a watch face that displays in-depth weather forecasts, a basic dashboard, or live wallpapers inspired by Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G – all of which can be customized to match your personality and unique lifestyle.



New Complications have also been added and are a great way to quickly access important information and launch the apps you use the most. You can now mix and match up to four Complications to display on your Animals watch face – from battery life and reminders, to messages, your step count, and much more. You can now also choose a moving GIF for your My Photo+ watch face to create an exciting and lively watch face that’s unique to you.



The update also brings more playful animations to your Steps Challenge watch face to help keep track of how you’re doing and keep you feeling motivated. An animated bear will follow every step of your competition – from stretching before you start a challenge, to cheering you on when you win.



More Convenience with Added Gesture Control

Gesture controls enable you to do more by using simple hand movements. In addition to moving your forearm up and down twice to receive calls and rotating your wrist twice to reject calls or dismiss alarms, the latest Galaxy Watch4 update includes a new hand motion that can act as a helpful shortcut to activate your favourite or most frequently used app or features– without having to lift a finger or press a button.


By doing a simple ‘knock, knock’ motion with your wrist, you can open your list of workouts, turn on a light, or even create a new reminder with ease.


In addition, Galaxy Watch4 users can also enjoy a 60-day access to make the most of your sport with Strava’s subscriber-only features[3]. With the Strava app, you can get the most out of your Galaxy Watch – train smarter and stay motivated with enhanced workout analysis, training plans, safety features and more.
