Samsung Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch Active4 running WearOS will not receive non-invasive glucose monitoring
South Korean edition of Money Today has released new exclusive information on the Samsung Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch Active4 smartwatches, which are due to be unveiled at the Galaxy Unpacked event this August.
The source claims that Samsung will indeed ditch the Tizen operating system in its future smartwatches. Insiders confirm previous reports that the Samsung Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch Active4 will run Wear OS.
The reason for switching to Wear OS is the lack of many applications on the Tizen platform. Even after many years, South Korea’s popular KakaoTalk instant messaging app still doesn’t have a Galaxy Watch app.
In addition, the source claims that Samsung’s upcoming smartwatches will not support non-invasive blood glucose monitoring. The Samsung Galaxy Watch4 will reportedly be available in 42mm and 46mm versions, while the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 4 will be offered in 40mm and 42mm versions.
Smartwatches will be available with and without an LTE modem; there will be no 5G support in the watch.
