CNet Spends 48 hours with Samsung’s new smartwatch #WearableWednesday
CNet reporter Scott Stein got to spend some time with the upcoming Galaxy watch 4. Check out the full details and early report:
It’s early days yet when it comes to seeing where this Galaxy Watch 4 and Google’s Wear OS platform are heading, and the watch doesn’t even become available until Aug. 27. (The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3, unveiled alongside Samsung’s new smartwatch, also arrive Aug. 27, but you can preorder them now.) But here are some things I’m already figuring out from a couple of days with both models. Keep in mind that my thoughts here may change as new software or app updates possibly roll in, and as these health features spend a longer period of time collecting data on my wrist.
