5 amazing things you can do with your smartwatch

We check out Samsung’s latest Galaxy Watch4 Classic

19 Nov 2021

You may think of smartwatches as being a really recent invention, but the first model actually dates back to the 1920s. Ok, it wasn’t actually very smart. You’d insert a small paper scroll of your map route and then physically scroll along until you reached your destination. This was a long time before GPS!

Since then, smartwatches have come a long, long way and have a whole host of features and we had a look at the Samsung’s latest Galaxy Watch4 Classic to see what surprises it had up its sleeves.


1. Give you tons of apps

The first thing people tend do with a new phone or tablet is to head to the relevant app store and download their faves – whether that’s YouTube for content or Whatsapp to stay up to date with their mates.

And you can do exactly that on the Watch4?* Wear OS Powered by Samsung’s clean and simple UI provides fast access to all your favourite apps. So, you get your apps on tap – right on your wrist!

And speaking of which…


2. Track your wellbeing goals

Whether it’s getting more sleep, feeling fitter or calmer – we all want to do a little better with our goals. But without keeping track of them it’s too easy to slip into bad habits. So, where better to have everything you need to reach your goals than on your wrist?

And whether you’re in the gym or getting active in the great outdoors – there are over 90 exercises that can be tracked on the Galaxy Watch4 Classic.

3. Pay for what you want on the go

Once you get used to paying with your watch, it’s a game changer.. You’ll never need to rummage through your wallet again, it’s just a matter of tapping your watch, thanks to the power of Samsung Pay and Google Pay. It’s never been more convenient to grab and go!


4. Be a mobile jukebox

And there’s no need to worry about running out of just as the  long-lasting battery lets you go further between charges.


5. Match your style

You don’t need to sacrifice style for brilliant features. The Galaxy Watch4 Classic will let you have both
