The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and the more premium Classic smartwatch have just launched and this hands-on review compares the specs, design & features. The Galaxy Watch 4 Classic is significantly more expensive vs the original, but is it worth that price? Includes a full tour of the new Wear OS 3.0 ‘Powered by Samsung’, fresh for 2021 – a hybrid of Google’s smartwatch OS and Tizen.
The vanilla version is smaller with a 1.2-inch screen and 40 or 44mm flavours. Meanwhile that more expensive Classic model comes in 42 or 46mm and boasts a 1.4-inch display. Both Sammy devices rock a crisp Super AMOLED panel, plus speaker and mic for taking/placing calls and using Bixby.
You get a rotating bexel on the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic for navigating those Wear OS 3.0 menus. Google Play can be used to download fresh apps, while NFC allows Samsung Pay to take you contactless. And as my hands-on review shows, all the major features from Tizen etc are present and correct.
Hoping to bring you an in-depth video soon!
