Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Classic spins around in rendered clips
Last week we saw rendered clips showing the Galaxy Z Flip3 from all angles, now it’s time for the Galaxy Watch4 Classic to do the 360º twirl, thanks to @evleaks. Previously, we saw static renders of the upcoming smartwatch, but the video helps highlight the design changes from the Watch3.
Starting with the obvious, it’s the “Classic” model that has the hardware rotating bezel, while the vanilla model will have only a virtual bezel on the touchscreen. By the looks of it, the vanilla model will be the new “Active”.
Compared to the Watch3, the new model will have squared off sides and the wrist band have been redesigned to completely fill in the gap between the lugs. You can see the quick release pins that allow you to remove the bands without any tools. This does mean that you will need to buy proprietary bands, however.
Three colorways are expected: White, Silver and Black. The first two have a case with a natural metallic color, while the Black model has a case painted darker to match. You can see the optical sensor at the bottom of the watch – that will measure pulse and SpO2 (blood-oxygen saturation). This year Samsung is allegedly adding a body composition monitor thanks to a Bio-electrical Impedance Analysis sensor (BIA, you may have seen these on smart scales).
The Samsung Galaxy Watch4 and Watch4 Classic will be unveiled on August 11 alongside the next-gen foldables (Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3) and new TWS buds (Galaxy Buds2). The Watch4 Classic is expected to cost €470-€500 for the 42 mm model and €500-€530 for the 46 mm one, about the same as the current Watch3. The bezel-less Watch4 (seemingly standing in for a new Active watch), is expected to be €350-€370 and €380-€400 for the 40 mm and 44 mm versions, respectively (pricier than the Watch Active 2).
