Prior to their Smartphone Event tomorrow, Samsung announces a Galaxy Watch4 Series Update that Levels Up Holistic Wellness+
Tomorrow Samsung is set to announced their next-gen Galaxy S22 line-up that they hope will be able to better compete with Apple's iPhone 13. Prior to the event, Samsung wanted to get the news about the Galaxy Watch4 update so that it doesn't get run over with their Galaxy smartphone line-up news tomorrow. Samsung Electronics announced this morning that they will offer a new software update to the Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch4 Classic sometime tomorrow.
Samsung Electronics is continuing its commitment to helping users reach their health and wellness goals and express their personal style. Users can expect new improvements like advanced interval training designed for any cyclist or runner, a new sleep coaching program and new body composition insights. Galaxy Watch4 users will now have even more ways to customize their look with upgraded watch faces, and a new line of stylish straps.
The latest body composition update gives users even more insight into their health progress. Samsung Health will also be providing body composition insights powered by Centr,2 a digital fitness program curated by Chris Hemsworth, to help users transform their health, fitness and mindset. In addition, Galaxy Watch4 users will receive a 30-day trial3 for full and unrestricted access to Centr.
Whether you’re just looking to get active or training for an upcoming race, Samsung’s new interval target feature for runners and cyclists lets them pre-set the duration, distance and number of sets for their workout. From there, Galaxy Watch4 guides them through a custom intensity training session with a series of high-intensity workouts interspersed with low-intensity workouts, making for an impactful and targeted workout every time.
Building on Galaxy Watch4’s robust sleep tracking capabilities, 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.
Combined with the advanced BioActive Sensor technology and Samsung Health Monitor app, Galaxy Watch4 measures both blood pressure (BP) and electrocardiogram8 (ECG), allowing users to monitor their heart health anytime and from anywhere.
Since the first introduction in 2020, Samsung Health Monitor app is currently available in 43 markets globally, expanding to 11 more in March, including Canada, Vietnam and South Africa.
