New Galaxy Watch4 series update empowers users to reach their goals with enhanced health and wellness features, and express themselves with more personalization than ever before

 

Samsung Electronics today announced a new update to the Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch4 Classic, continuing its commitment to helping users reach their health and wellness goals and express their personal style. Users can expect new improvements like advanced interval training designed for any cyclist or runner, a new sleep coaching program, and new body composition[1] insights. Galaxy Watch4 users will now have even more ways to customize their look 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 Watch4 series community on their unique wellness journeys with our latest update,” said, Janghyun Yoon, Executive Vice President and Head of Software Platform at Mobile eXperience Business, Samsung Electronics. “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 health progress. Samsung Health will also be providing body composition insights powered by Centr[2], a digital fitness program curated by Chris Hemsworth, to help users transform their health, fitness and mindset. In addition, Galaxy Watch4 users will receive a 30-day trial[3] for full and unrestricted access to Centr. 

 

Whether you’re just looking to get active or training for an upcoming race, Samsung’s new interval target feature for runners and cyclists lets them pre-set the duration, distance, and number of sets for their workout. From there, Galaxy Watch4 guides them through a custom intensity training session with a series of high-intensity workouts interspersed with low-intensity workouts, making for an impactful and targeted workout every time.

 

We are continuing our collaboration with top-ranked apps like adidas Running and Strava to help users power through their exercise.

 

 

Work Towards a Better Night’s Sleep

 

Building on Galaxy Watch4’s 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, it 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 healthy rest as well. Galaxy Watch4 recognizes when users fall asleep and automatically turns off Samsung SmartThings enabled lights to help create better sleeping conditions[4].

 

 

 

Deeper Insights for a Healthier Heart

Combined with the advanced BioActive Sensor technology and Samsung Health Monitor app[5], Galaxy Watch4 measures both blood pressure[6] (BP) and electrocardiogram[7] (ECG), allowing users to monitor their heart health anytime and from anywhere.

 

 

Greater Selection of Matching Straps and Watch Faces

The new Galaxy Watch4 update makes the wearable experience even better, from the inside out. Users can further customize their watch face with additional colors and digital clock fonts that make the watch truly their own. Also, new strap colors[8] such as burgundy and cream, and the new fabric band and link bracelet will be available for a more personalized look.

 

 

Committed to Expanding Compatibility within the Android Ecosystem

In 2021, Samsung and Google introduced 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, users will be able to stream music over Wi-Fi or LTE from the YouTube Music app on their Galaxy Watch4. This means that users can leave their phone behind and still enjoy their favorite artists as they work out on-the-go.

 

Users can also now install their favorite smartphone apps[9] on their Galaxy Watch4 during initial setup with one tap, creating a seamless experience across devices right out of the box.

 

 

Availability [10],[11]

This software update will be available via the Galaxy Wearable app for Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch4 Classic starting the day of the Unpacked – February 10th KST. Users can purchase the new watch straps beginning late February.
