The Body Analysis update gives users insight into their body composition. Whether they just want to get active or gear up for an upcoming race, the interval goal feature for runners and cyclists allows users to pre-set the duration, distance and reps for a workout. From there, the Galaxy Watch4 will guide you through a series of alternating high-intensity and low-intensity workouts that are both effective and focused.

Collaborations with popular apps like adidas Running and Strava continue to help users with their workout routine.

Sleep coaching for a restful night’s sleep

The sleep training program is based on the Galaxy Watch4’s sleep tracking features and is designed to help users analyze their sleep habits. By tracking sleep behavior over a period of seven days and performing two sleep surveys, the program assigns one of eight sleep icons that represent the user’s sleep type. To help improve sleep quality, the program takes users through a four to five week training program that includes tasks, checklists, sleep articles, meditation guides, and regular reports.

A quiet and peaceful sleeping environment is one of the keys to restful sleep. To help create such an environment, Galaxy Watch4 can detect when users are falling asleep and automatically turn off the backlight using Samsung SmartThings.2

health in mind

Combined with advanced Samsung BioActive Sensor technology, the Samsung Health Monitor app for Galaxy Watch4 measures blood pressure (BP) and can also record an electrocardiogram4 (ECG). This allows users to monitor their health. Since its initial launch in 2020, the Samsung Health Monitor app is currently available in 43 markets worldwide and will expand to 11 additional markets (including Canada, Vietnam and South Africa) in March 2022.

Stylish bracelets and dials

In addition to functional changes, users can also look forward to some design updates. The watch face can be further customized with new digital clock fonts and an expanded color palette. New fabric and link bracelets and sports bracelets in burgundy and cream also bring new color accents to the wrist.5

Communication in the Android ecosystem

Last year, Samsung and Google introduced Wear OS™ Powered by Samsung. This ensures a smooth connection between Android devices as well as seamless access to various apps via Google Play (such as Google Maps, Google Pay and YouTube Music).

Additionally, Google Assistant will be available on the Galaxy Watch4 series in the coming months. With access to Bixby and Google Assistant, consumers have access to advanced voice assistant capabilities. In addition, users can also install their favorite smartphone apps6 directly on their Galaxy Watch4 during initial setup, creating a multi-device experience right out of the box.


The software update will be available through the Galaxy Wearable app on the Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch4 Classic after the Unpacked Event (starting February 9, 2022). The new bracelets will be available from the end of February.
