New Galaxy Watch4 Series update empowers users to express themselves with more personalisation than ever before, and monitor their goals with enhanced health and wellness features


LONDON, UK – February 7th, 2022 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced a new update to the Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch4 Classic, continuing its commitment to helping users express their personal style and monitor their health goals. Users can expect new health and fitness feature improvements, like advanced interval training designed for any cyclist or runner, a new sleep coaching programme, and new body composition insights. Galaxy Watch4 users will now have even more ways to customise their look with upgraded watch faces, and a new line of stylish strap.


“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, James Kitto, Vice President of Sales, Samsung Electronics UK and Ireland. “Galaxy Watch4 helps our users monitor their individualised 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.”

The latest Body Composition[1] 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 programme curated by Chris Hemsworth, to help users transform their health, fitness and mindset. In addition, Galaxy Watch4 users will receive a 30-day free 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.


Track Your Sleep


Building on Galaxy Watch4’s robust sleep tracking capabilities, the new Sleep Coaching[4] programme helps users develop better sleep habits. By tracking sleep patterns over seven days[5] and completing two related sleep surveys, the programme assigns one of eight Sleep Symbol animals representing the user’s sleep type. Then, the programme will guide users through a four to five week coaching programme 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 recognises when users fall asleep and automatically turns off Samsung SmartThings enabled lights to help create better sleeping conditions[6].


Deeper Insights for a Healthier Heart


Combined with the advanced BioActive Sensor technology and Samsung Health Monitor app[7], Galaxy Watch4 measures both blood pressure (BP) and electrocardiogram[8] (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 customise their watch face with additional colours and digital clock fonts that make the watch truly their own. Also, new strap colours such as burgundy and cream, and the new fabric band and link bracelet will be available for a more personalised 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[9] 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[10]. This means that users can leave their phone behind and still enjoy their favourite artists as they workout on-the-go.


Users can also now install their favourite smartphone apps[11] on their Galaxy Watch4 during initial setup with one tab, creating a seamless experience across devices right out of the box.




Galaxy Watch4 software update will be available via the Galaxy Wearable app on Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch4 Classic starting the day of the Unpacked – February 9th. Users can purchase the new watch straps beginning late February.
