Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced a new update to the Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch4 Classic.
The update includes advanced interval training designed for any cyclist or runner, a new sleep coaching program, and new body composition insights.
It also adds more customisation options in the form of upgraded watch faces and a new line of stylish straps.
Workout Smarter, Harder
Samsung Health will also be providing improved body composition insights powered by Centr, a digital fitness program curated by Chris Hemsworth, to help users transform their health, fitness, and mindset.
Galaxy Watch4 users will also receive a 30-day trial for full and unrestricted access to Centr.
Samsung’s new interval target feature for runners and cyclists lets them pre-set the duration, distance, and number of sets for their workout.
The Galaxy Watch4 will then guide them through a custom intensity training session with a series of high-intensity workouts interspersed with low-intensity workouts.
Samsung is also continuing its collaboration with top-ranked apps like Adidas Running and Strava to help users power through their exercise.
Sleep Symbol Animals
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.
Galaxy Watch4 recognizes when users fall asleep and automatically turns off Samsung SmartThings enabled lights to help create better sleeping conditions.
Matters Of The Heart
Combined with the advanced BioActive Sensor technology and Samsung Health Monitor app, the Galaxy Watch4 measures both blood pressure (BP) and electrocardiogram (ECG), allowing users to monitor their heart health anytime and from anywhere.
More Straps & New Faces
Users can further customise their watch face with additional colours and digital clock fonts.
New strap colours such as burgundy and cream, and the new fabric band and link bracelet will be available for a more personalised look.
More Integration Coming Soon
Google Assistant will be available on the Galaxy Watch4 series in the coming months. That means users will have access to both Bixby and Google Assistant on their Galaxy Watch4.
Users can also now install their favourite smartphone apps on their Galaxy Watch4 during initial setup with one tap, creating a seamless experience across devices right out of the box.
This software update will be available via the Galaxy Wearable app for Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch4 Classic starting the day of the Unpacked – 10 Feb. Users can purchase the new watch straps beginning late February.
