For example, these are the first Samsung devices with the Google Wear OS software platform and the One UI Watch shell " with the most intuitive interface in Samsung history ." The new and hardware platform is the 5nm Exynos W920, which was officially unveiled yesterday. This SoC includes a 1.18 GHz dual-core Arm Cortex-A55 CPU, an Arm Mali-G68 GPU, and an energy-efficient Cortex-M55 core that is responsible for the Always-on Display function. We got new items and 50% more RAM - it's 1.5 GB. The built-in flash memory is 16 GB.

The Galaxy Watch4 uses the innovative BioActive sensor and is more compact than the previous ones. This sensor is used to measure pulse, ECG, and bioimpedance analysis (measuring blood pressure and blood oxygen saturation, detecting atrial fibrillation, and, for the first time, determining body composition (BIA sensor)).

Bioimpedance Body Analysis provides a deeper insight into your overall health and fitness. This includes parameters such as skeletal muscle mass, metabolic rate, water content, and body fat percentage. Bioimpedance analysis is easy: just place 2 fingers on the buttons. In about 15 seconds, the sensor will record 2,400 units of data. The matter is not limited to these sensors alone: ​​the watch also has an accelerometer, gyroscope, barometer, and light sensor.
