Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 have surfaced online to suggest the design and specifications of the company’s next-generation smartwatch ahead of its official announcement. The leaked show the Galaxy Watch 4 in a circular build, which makes it look similar to the Galaxy Watch Active 2 rather than the Galaxy Watch 3. The new smartwatch is also said to have a bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) sensor for monitoring body composition. This may be alongside real-time heart rate monitoring and blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) tracking.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 in four distinct colour options: Black, Silver, Dark Green, and Rose Gold. Samsung is likely to retain some features of the Galaxy Watch 3 in its new smartwatch, including the interchangeable wrist strap design and physical buttons. However, the overall build of the Galaxy Watch 4 isn’t aligning with last year’s smartwatch. It appears to have rounded edges and a thinner profile over the Galaxy Watch 3 that came with a sporty design.
Instead of being closer to the Galaxy Watch 3 in appearance, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 leaked renders suggest it may have more in common with the Galaxy Watch Active 2. The new Samsung smartwatch may also come in 40mm and 44mm sizes as well as include 5ATM water resistance, MIL-STD 810G durability, and Gorilla Glass DX+ protection. It is also likely to have GPS support. Last month, Samsung and Google partnered to integrate Tizen OS with Google’s Wear OS. It could allow for better battery life and performance as well as support for newer apps and watch faces.
In addition, tipster Max Weinbach has tweeted about the existence of a BIA sensor on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. It would allow users to measure their body fat and muscle mass. Samsung is also likely to continue to provide support for heart rate monitoring and SpO2 measurement on the Galaxy Watch 4. Both features were part of the Galaxy Watch 3 last year.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is expected to have LTE and Wi-Fi variants, and both the variants are likely to have NFC support and features including offline music playback. Alongside the vanilla Galaxy Watch 4, Samsung may also have the Galaxy Watch 4 Active in the works, with a sportier design.
