Samsung will be releasing new features in an upcoming update for the Samsung Galaxy Watch4. These features include new watch faces, gesture control and improvements in fall detection.
The update was release on Oct 20, but exactly went we get it depends on Samsung.
Your Watch Face, Exactly How You Want It
With 4 new watch faces to choose from, you can see whatever information that you want on the watch face with a glance at your wrist.
You can keep your health stats and customise the new Info Brick watch face with heart rate and stress to daily activity status.
You could also choose to display the in-depth weather forecast or live wallpapers inspired by the Galaxy Z line devices, which are all customisable.
Complications are a great way to quickly access information and launch apps at a glance. You can now mix and match up to 4 complications to display on your Animal watch face from battery life, messages, reminders, step count and much more.
You can also choose a GIF for your My Photo+ watch face, sprucing up your watch face that is unique to you.
Gesture control lets you do more with simple hand movements and the update comes with new hand motion that acts as a shortcut to activating pre-selected apps.
By doing a ‘knock-knock’ motion with your wrist, the Galaxy Watch4 lets you open pre-selected applications, open workout list, turn on a light or even create new reminders.
Improved Fall Detection
Fall detection was introduced in the Galaxy smartwatch line in 2020 and was capable of recognising if you had fallen down during exercise sessions.
The update lets you adjust the sensitivity so that it is capable of detecting a fall even when you are standing still. The Galaxy Watch4 can also send out an SOS notification to up to 4 emergency contacts.
Just for the Galaxy Watch users; you will get a 60-day free Strava premium subscription, a cycling and running tracking app.
