Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 (Classic): The problems are increasing

Samsung recently introduced the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, a new smartwatch that makes a new start in terms of technology, appearance and software. The first customers have now received their smartwatches and are massively disappointed, especially in the area of ​​software. Now there are other problems as well.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4: hardware top, software flop

Update from 09/01/2021: This is certainly not how Samsung imagined the launch of the new Galaxy Watch 4. On Amazon, the negative ratings are increasing (check out Amazon). In the meantime, however, there are also threads about problems in Samsung forums and on Reddit. The main complaints there are about the poor battery life . If you have conversations about the smartwatch with LTE, the watch also gets very warm. The same thing happens if you lose the connection to the smartphone.

If you have problems with the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, you should install the latest software if possible and put the watch back on in an emergency . But even that is not always a solution. So Samsung will have to go one step further with the software.

Original article:

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 celebrated its market launch last Friday. The interest in the smartwatch was so high that deliveries were delayed. The first customers have already received the watch and are publishing their first impressions directly on Samsung (look at Samsung) but also on Amazon (look at Amazon). These don't seem really good everywhere. While the hardware and the design basically convince everyone, the software can't keep up .

Many bought the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic with the expectation that it would be a Wear OS smartwatch. In the end it does, but essential components are missing . For example, it is noted that the Google Assistant is missing. Instead, you have to use Bixby. Many preinstalled apps cannot be removed and only unnecessarily occupy the internal memory, which should only be half free. Of 16 GB, only a little over 8 GB remain.

There are also complaints about the not-so-beautiful watch faces, although that should be more of a personal taste, as well as the complicated connection with an Android phone that is not from Samsung. You probably need several attempts to connect and many Samsung apps have to be installed. In addition, some functions of the watch are not properly supported. The battery life is also criticized.

In the video you can see our first impression of the Samsung Smartwatch:

Samsung has to improve the software of the Galaxy Watch 4

For most buyers of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, this is clear. The software has to get better. It is not known exactly where the problem is . Can't Google integrate its own assistant into Wear OS 3.0 or does Samsung want to force Bixby on us? We haven't had the opportunity to test any of the watches yet, but hope to receive a test device soon.
