Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 will be launched on August 4, but we already know a little more about the sensors it will use. According to leaker Max Weinbach, Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 may include BIA” sensor that measures body fat.
Max Weinbach has revealed that the Galaxy Watch 4 will use a new “BIA” sensor, which analyzes body composition.
Bioelectrical impedance analysis or bioimpedance analysis (BIA) is a method of assessing your body composition. In particular, it allows measure body fat in relation to lean mass. It is an integral part of a health and nutrition check-up.
This technology has been present for years on high-end “impedance-meter” scales, which allow you to know the exact percentage of fat in your body. This scientific technique, known for a long time to the medical profession and dieticians, could soon arrive on Samsung watch.
The addition of the new BIA sensor is good news for fans of the Samsung Watch since we recently learned that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch Active 4 will not support blood sugar monitoring.
The Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch Active 4 will both come in two different sizes. The first will be marketed in 42mm and 46mm, while the Active version will be slightly smaller, 40mm and 42mm.
It is also known that after using Tizen for years, new Samsung watches will work under a new version of Wear OS. According to Ice Universe, this new overlay would be called Water OS.
Finally, according to Max Weinbach, Samsung may unveil its two watches for the Galaxy Unpacked on August 4. They will likely be presented alongside the new Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 . This morning we were able to see official images of the two folding smartphones.
