Samsung and Google have worked together to push mobile technology forward across smartphones, tablets as well as foldable. The partnership between these two companies is strong because they both want what's best for users--a challenge can often make things more interesting! Now that we're ready take our collaboration even further with smartwatches (here’s looking at you Moto Watch), I'm excited by the possibilities this Partnership could bring us all in years ahead.
The future of wearables has arrived and it’s got a heart rate monitor! Samsung announced its new Galaxy Watch4, which will be available in stores soon. This smartwatch runs on our unified platform - the first device to do so for watches or other devices that you might wear around your wrist (or otherwise). The innovative design includes all features from both Android Wearable OS versions as well iOS apps like Google Maps navigation seamlessly integrated into one interface so there's no need go back between screens when checking directions.
We’re taking what we've learned from Wear OS and Tizen to jointly build a smartwatch that is more tailored for users. The Galaxy Watch4 features an easy set up, 40 hour battery life with optimized performance so you can spend less time charging it every day as well as access to over 100 different apps available through the Samsung ecosystem including Spotify Music Beta!

With Wear OS there are more ways than ever before so google doesn't have just one app on your wrist at any given time (which would be pretty boring). You can customize everything from graphics down through individual tiles within each respective application--changing things up every single day if needed without having install new software onto our devices because this system ensures updates come automatically via Bluetooth Low Energy. There are also new apps and Tiles coming to Wear OS for quicker access to your favorites. Let’s get into the details:
