The first thing we noticed about the GalaxyWatch4 Classic is that it doesn’t look like a smart watch. Its iconic silhouette and stainless steel casting has more in common with luxury watches than wearable tech. That kind of style does have a practical benefit—the better a watch looks, the more you’ll wear it. The more you wear it, the more you’ll be able to benefit from its smart features. 

That being said, we were slightly skeptical that the GalaxyWatch4 Classic would work as well as more tactical looking smart watches. At first it was hard to wrap our heads around the idea that you should wear this stylish accessory to the gym, to bed or basically anywhere besides a hip new bar or restaurant. But when we got it on our wrist and began to explore its features—the most comprehensive assessment of body wellness factors on the market, an upgraded operating system, suite of Google products and more—it became clear that there’s more than meets the eye to the GalaxyWatch4 Classic. 

The design of the GalaxyWatch4 Classic made us think it’s the perfect smart watch for people who don’t like the look of most smart watches. Now that we’ve actually worn it, we’re convinced it’s the perfect smart watch. Period. Check out all the ways it can have you feeling as good as you look. 

It Matches Any Lifestyle

Take a look at the GalaxyWatch4 Classic. That sleek design is going to look great with your outfit, whether you’re wearing gym clothes, office attire or even pajamas. That’s no accident. This smart watch is designed to go with you everywhere. You can leave your phone behind and go on long runs, comfortable knowing that the LTE connectivity will allow your family or coworkers to reach you in case anything urgent comes up. 

The GalaxyWatch4 Classic is also light and comfortable enough to wear to bed. Not only will it not interfere with your sleep—the advanced tracker will calculate a sleep score to help you improve the quality of your rest. In other words, it’s working hard even when you’re fast asleep. 

It’s hard to think of any activity, let alone any lifestyle, that doesn’t match the features included with the GalaxyWatch4 Classic. Staying connected and getting good sleep are obviously important for everyone, but style itself is more subjective. Luckily, Samsung had the inspired idea to let people personalize their GalaxyWatch4 Classic with a variety of bands and watch faces, ensuring that your smart watch will reflect your style and not be identical to everyone else’s.

Productivity Has Never Looked So Good

While the GalaxyWatch4 Classic would make a good looking bracelet, it’s a relief that it’s backed up by an upgraded operating system and suite of Google products. These tools and apps are what make the watch as functional as it is stylish. So how does this smart watch actually make you more productive and efficient throughout the course of your day? 

We’ve already covered how it monitors and improves your sleep, so let’s fast forward to picking up your morning coffee. After using the watch for directions to that cool new coffee shop you’ve been meaning to try, you can use it to pay for your latte without even pausing the music you’re streaming on YouTube Music. Throughout the course of your morning routine, you won’t even have to bother reaching for your phone or digging through your wallet or purse. And thanks to the LTE connectivity, you can relax knowing that you won’t miss any calls, texts or notifications in the process. 

When you have the full power of Google available right on your wrist, every aspect of your day becomes a little easier, a little more seamless. That gives you more time to focus on the tasks that really matter. 

Health Is Always In Style

You know what’s even more important than looking stylish and being productive? Maintaining your health. Luckily, the GalaxyWatch4 Classic is outfitted with a variety of features that empower you to do exactly that. Once you start wearing this stylish smart watch, you’ll get all the health data you’ll need to crush your wellness goals. No smart watch offers a more comprehensive assessment of body wellness factors. Its accurate ECG monitoring will even keep an eye on possible atrial fibrillation, a common form of irregular heart rhythm. This smart watch won’t replace your doctor, but sharing personalized readings through the Samsung Health app will help you stay on top of your health between appointments. 

In addition to evaluating the current state of your health, the GalaxyWatch4 Classic is an amazing tool when it comes to getting smart about exercise. Auto Workout Tracking recognizes six popular activities, from running to rowing to swimming. Not to worry if you exercise in a more unconventional way. You can manually track up to 90 different workouts, including high-intensity interval training. No matter how you exercise, you can get the most out of every workout with the GalaxyWatch4 Classic

It’s kind of amazing to think that one accessory can make you more stylish, productive and healthy. It starts to feel like an understatement to call the GalaxyWatch4 Classic a smart watch. Something like a brilliant-beautiful watch seems more appropriate. Whatever you decide to call it, you should really put one onto your wrist soon.
