Samsung is expected to host its next big event in August. The South Korean tech giant is rumoured to launch the next-gen Galaxy Fold and Flip smartphones alongside the next Galaxy Watch. Rumour mill has been buzzing with leaks about the products. The latest rumour suggests that the Galaxy Watch may have a feature to measure body fat.
According to tipster Max Winebach, the Galaxy Watch will have BIA or Bio-Electrical Impedance Analysis feature that measures body fat composition. The feature could help users about their body fat percentage and let them know when they are getting close to their weight loss goals. The feature is curiously missing from the Apple Watch till now.
Rumours have suggested that the next Samsung smartwatch — Galaxy Watch 4 — will have an all-new processor.
The other big reveal on the Samsung smartwatch will be the new Wear OS that has developed in partnership with Google. At its annual developer conference in May, Google had announced its partnership with Samsung. “Samsung and Google have a long history of collaboration. Now, we’re bringing the best of Wear and Tizen into a single, unified platform. By working together we have been able to take strengths of each and combine them into an experience that has faster performance, longer battery life and more of the apps you love available for the watch,” Google said at the event in May.
Apple dominates the smartwatch globally with Counterpoint Research stating that every third smartwatch sold is an Apple Watch. Samsung — along with Google — will be hoping to make a dent in Apple’s market share with the Galaxy Watch 4.
