The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 ticks all the boxes for a good connected watch in 2022. It benefits from a calibrated AMOLED screen, with a diagonal of 1.2 inches on the 40 mm version of the watch and 1.4 inch for grind 44 mm. A display surface large enough to be able to correctly read information or navigate through apps.
The TizenOS interface gives way to the more pleasant WearOS, with One UI Watch overlay. A version that offers substantially the same design as the interface of Samsung smartphones. The user experience is much better, with the added possibility of accessing the Play Store directly from your watch. You can download all your favorite apps, like Strava and Google Fit, and even YouTube Music from your watch. Apps that can be used offline thanks to the watch’s internal storage.
