The latest Galaxy Watch4 Series update empowers users to express themselves with more personalization options, and to reach their goals with enhanced fitness and wellness features
Today, Samsung Electronics Canada announced a new update to the Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch4 Classic, continuing its commitment to helping users express their personal style and reach their fitness goals. Users can expect new fitness and wellness feature improvements like advanced interval training designed for any cyclist or runner, a new sleep coaching program and new body composition insights. Galaxy Watch4 Series users will now have even more ways to match their smartwatch with their personal style with upgraded watch faces and a new line of stylish straps.
“We understand the growing needs of smartwatch users, and are committed to guiding our Galaxy Watch series community on their unique wellness journeys with our latest update,” said, TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile eXperience Business, Samsung Electronics. “Galaxy Watch4 Series helps our users reach their individualized goals by providing the health and wellness tools they need to be successful. We are excited to continue this effort as part of our wider initiative to redefine holistic wellness through expanded experiences and new innovations.”
Motivation to Move
The latest Body Composition update gives users even more insight into their wellness progress. Now, in addition to setting body composition goals like specific weight, body fat percentage, and skeletal muscle targets, users can get tips and reminder notifications within the Samsung Health app for added motivation.
The new interval target feature for runners and cyclists lets users pre-set the duration, distance, and number of sets for their workout. From there, the Galaxy Watch4 Series guides users through a custom intensity training session with a series of high and low intensity workouts, making for an impactful and targeted workout every time.
From warm-up to recovery, the latest Galaxy Watch4 Series update is designed to deliver the best running and recovery experience. Runners can measure their oxygen intake levels (% of VO2 max) in real-time, so they can always control exactly how hard they’re pushing. After the run, Galaxy Watch4 Series helps runners maintain proper hydration by recommending how much to drink based on the amount of sweat loss detected during the workout. It also monitors recovery heart rate, with data generated up to two minutes after a cardio-intensive workout.
Work Towards a Better Night’s Sleep
Building on the Galaxy Watch4 Series robust sleep tracking capabilities, the new Sleep Coaching program helps users develop better sleep habits. By tracking sleep patterns over seven days and completing two related sleep surveys, the program assigns one of eight Sleep Symbol animals representing the user’s sleep type. Then, the program will guide users through a four to five week coaching program that includes missions, checklists, sleep-related articles, meditation guidance, and regular reports to support users as they work towards improving their sleep quality.
When it comes to waking up refreshed, a peaceful and quiet environment is key to achieving a better rest. Galaxy Watch4 Series recognizes when users fall asleep and automatically turns off Samsung SmartThings enabled lights to help create better sleeping conditions.
Greater Selection of Matching Straps and Watch Faces
The new Galaxy Watch4 Series update makes the wearable experience even better, from the inside out. Users can further customize their watch face with additional colours and digital clock fonts that make the watch truly their own. Users can create a more personalized look with new strap colours such as burgundy and cream and the new fabric band.
Committed to Expanding Compatibility within the Android Ecosystem
In 2021, Samsung and Google introduced the co-developed Wear OS™ Powered by Samsung, bringing smoother connections across Android devices and seamless access to more apps via Google Play including Google Maps, Google Pay, and YouTube Music. Coming soon through an additional update, This means that users can leave their phone behind and still enjoy their favourite artists as they work out on-the-go.
