Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is one of the best smartwatches available on the market. The company continually updates these watches to provide users with the best performance. Recently, it received the most anticipated Google Assistant feature.
Meanwhile, to test new features before they get live publically, Samsung has decided to test those updates in the form of beta. Just recently, the OEM began releasing the first One UI Watch 4.5 beta to introduce the first wave of changes and additions that Samsung wants to try.
But ahead of releasing the beta update, the company introduced the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 beta app. This app distributed the Watch 4 beta through the Galaxy Store. The app installs on an existing Galaxy Watch 4 plugin and provides the same functions.
However, there are no noticeable changes seen in the Galaxy Wearable app after installing this update, at this moment. But we might see some later (via 9to5Google).

Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Revolutionizes Running with University of Michigan Partnership
Thanks to Samsung’s research partnership, the Galaxy Watch 6 revolutionizes running with the University of Michigan Exercise & Sport Science Initiative. This collaboration is launched to help runners manage their health and physical activity by providing more reliable and accurate data.
The Michigan Performance Research Laboratory (MiPR) — ESSI’s core research lab — will oversee an eight-month study that uses the Galaxy Watch series to estimate the VO2 max and sweat loss of participants as they run.
The study will compare reference data against smartwatch data from both indoor (treadmill) and outdoor running trials of different distances, from 2.5km to 20km.
Runners at all levels grapple with sweat loss, dehydration and heat management, particularly during the summer months. Samsung and University of Michigan teams hope the study’s findings will further enhance smartwatch technology, giving runners more accurate measurements of their health metrics.
Galaxy Watch 6
Samsung’s new Galaxy Watch 6 and Watch 6 Classic feature personalized fitness coaching, advanced sleep management, and health monitoring. For runners, the new Personalized Heart Rate Zone feature provides five optimal running intensity levels based on individual physical capabilities.
Additionally, Track Run helps runners record their runs while on a running track. During a run, Galaxy Watch provides in-depth analysis including asymmetry, regularity, and ground contact time to help improve performance and reduce injury.
