Samsung Galaxy Watch, not Gear S4

Since the beginning of the year the arrival of the Gear S4 has been rumored but Samsung made it official in August; although with the name of Galaxy Watch.

The Galaxy Watch keeps the beautiful AMOLED screen round; and its rotating bezel that has been liked since the Gear S2.

In addition, the clock keeps the two side buttons that allow you to go to Start or open Samsung Pay; while its operating system is still Tizen (4.0). However, Samsung Pay only works with NFC, not with MST like the Gear S3 or Samsung's flagship phones; so its compatibility is a little more limited.

On this occasion, Samsung did not include S Voice as in the previous model. Now he has integrated Bixby directly to create more uniformity through his devices and try to offer a better experience.

The Galaxy Watch also comes with the Samsung Health Service, the Samsung Pay payment system, the SmartThings home and connected life platform and other third-party apps such as the Under Armor app.

Samsung promises that with the optimization it implemented in software and hardware, the Galaxy Watch smart watch will have the ability to last up to several days on a single charge.
