Summary

Samsung's Galaxy Watch4 Classic is the first smartwatch to run Wear OS 3, which is a joint Google and Samsung platform. Android apps for Wear OS work on the watch, unlike on the Tizen-powered Galaxy Watch 3. Samsung's use of One Watch UI is key to the watch's usability, as the interface is slick and logical.

The Galaxy Watch 4 Classic doesn't look that different from the Galaxy Watch 3. There are subtle refinements that give the new model a more cohesive, mature, and watch-like style. The health and fitness tracking is comprehensive, detailed, easy to use, and packed with features. The watch starts at $349, and will be released on August 27 in black or silver.
