Galaxy Watch 4: the new Samsung smartwatch with Wear OS 3 is coming

Samsung has decided to modify its smartwatch, Galaxy Watch, giving the device a new processor and a new operating system: Exynos W920 processor, recently announced and WearOS software powered by Samsung. It will also have double the storage space and will be able to calculate body composition. Obviously the smartwatch will not be compatible with Apple and iOS.

The appearance will therefore not detach much from what it was its predecessor, but it does soften in the lines, changing the shape of the two side buttons which are now more similar to the rest of the case. Obviously the appearance of the new Galaxy Watch 4 turns out to be more youthful, arriving on the market in two variants: Galaxy Watch and Classic.

Galaxy Watch 4, same style and improved functionality

the Watch 4 is in two sizes of 40 and 44 mm with an aluminum case while the Watch 4 Classic has diameters of 42 mm and 46 mm and a stainless steel case. The first has the digital touch crown, while the Classic has a rotating and mechanical one. Both variants will be sold with the availability of Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and LTE.

The screens remain in 1.2 “and 1.4” sizes as for the Watch 3, the Super AMOLED screen in Corning Gorilla Glass DX now has a resolution of 396 x 396 pixels and 450 x 450 pixels respectively. The display will automatically adjust to brightness based on the natural ambient light. It also increases the RAM that gains half a gig and reaches 1.5 GB, while the storage space doubles and takes 16 GB.

The battery capacity also increases slightly which goes from 340 mAh to 361 mAh but only for Watch 4 with 1.4 ”screen. Those with 1.2 ”displays will have the same 247 mAh battery for the same size as the old Watch 3. However, both support fast charging. Instead of 2.5 hours, about 1 hour and 40 minutes is now enough to bring the battery from 0% to 100% capacity. The overall autonomy is about 30 hours of useso we could be faced with a smartwatch with an average autonomy of about two days.

Software and operating system change

The company leave aside the Tizen operating system to make room for Google’s Wear OS 3. This choice brings better integration with Google’s services that all go through the Play Store on the watch as well. There will be Google Maps, the Google Assistant, Google Pay and YouTube Music, and apps like Spotify and specific ones for training like Strava, Adidas Running, or MyFitnessPal, among many others.
