Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Release Date

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 was announced on August 21 of 2020. The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 was announced on August 5 of 2019, and the original Samsung Galaxy Watch was unveiled on August 9 of 2018. Based on that, it’s predicted that The Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch Active 4 should be available around the same time this year.

This apparent confirmation comes from the industry insider, who had already published a whole range of forecasts in the past that later turned out to be correct. He doesn't share any further information but previously said Samsung will be releasing a new smartwatch with Wear OS instead of Tizen. If that's true, it could be a big boost to Google's wearable platform, which hasn't exactly thrived in the past few months.

There are also other rumors about Samsung's next smartwatch, including that it might be equipped with a blood glucose meter. According to a previous report, the wearable could use an optical sensor capable of monitoring a person's blood sugar without drawing blood, which is often the way a person's blood sugar is tracked.
