Samsung will be holding its Galaxy Unpacked event tonight, where it will launch its next-gen foldable smartphones along with a few other products including its next-gen Galaxy Watch 4. Many are excited for the upcoming Galaxy Watch 4 as it will be the first smartwatch to run Google’s and Samsung’s new wearable operating system, which was revealed earlier this year. Here we will be taking a look at everything we know about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Watch 4.
While Samsung has not officially stated how many smartwatches it will launch at its Galaxy Unpacked event. However, multiple leaks suggest that alongside the vanilla variant of the Galaxy Watch 4, the company will launch another Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, with a unique design.
From the leaked renders, we have seen that Samsung will be ditching its rotating bezel in the Galaxy Watch 4. The device could be made available in 40mm and 44mm sizes. It is difficult to tell if the rotating bezel would be made available on the Classic version of the watch or not. However, from its looks, the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic feels like the true follow-up to the Galaxy Watch 3.
According to an earlier leak by 91Mobiles, the Galaxy Watch 4 will come with 5ATM water resistance, MIL-STD 810G rating, Gorilla Glass DX Plus protection and onboard GPS.

It is also being said that both the Galaxy Watch 4 series devices will feature a seven-day battery life. This if true would be one of the USPs of the device, however, we are a bit sceptical on the point.
The watch is expected to feature a pulse oximeter, heart rate sensor, blood pressure monitoring, and ECG. There is also a floating rumour, which states that the watch will come with a new sensor to monitor body composition, called the bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), which will estimate the wearer’s body fat percentage, providing a broader overview of their general health.
No Tizen this time along
Google during its I/O 2021 developers conference confirmed that it has developed a new operating system for smartwatches in collaboration with Samsung and that it would release it later this year with Samsung’s upcoming smartwatches. Samsung during MWC 2021, officially confirmed that the new wearable operating system will be called Wear OS 3 and will combine the best of Google’s Wear OS with the best of Samsung’s Tizen.
Samsung will also launch its Wear OS 3 skin, dubbed One UI Watch, apart from the new OS. The skin will bring in multiple features including automatic app installs, settings and feature syncing across phone and watch, and a watch face developer console.
