Watches, to begin with, have evolved drastically since their advent in the 17th Century. Smart watch slowly creeps on our wrists as opposed to our traditional watches.

Usage of Corning Gorilla Glass DX and shallow placement in the making will surely keep the scratches away.
Two physical buttons are there on the right, letting the user navigate through the UI. The Swipe gesture coupled with a rotating bezel works well to navigate around the menus and app.
The watch adorns a fluoroelastomer strap and quick release pins making the swapping of it a minute job.
The underside of the same comes with Samsung BioActive Sensor used to measure heart rate and SpO2 levels.
The watch also takes into account stress and body composition. The watch four classics has 1.5GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage and supports Bluetooth 5, four satellite navigation systems, Dual-Band Wi-Fi and NFC. The watch sports a water resistance of 5ATM and is IP68 rated.
The upgraded feature- Software
One of the exciting changes that appear in this model is the software. Samsung’s Tizen OS goes out, and the new WearOS comes in.
The change in software showcases the collaboration of Samsung with Google, letting users have access to Google apps on smartwatches produced by the tech giant- Samsung. Google Assistant, however, isn’t available in the classic model; Bixby is.
One of the key features is its lack of compatibility with the iPhones; they can only pair with Android 6.0 or higher.
Needless to say, Yes! For the moment, the lack of compatibility with iOS devices devoid the tech giant of a market segment that is iPhone driven.
A significant chunk of the smartphone users uses Android, yet Samsung does miss out on the potential iPhone users’ feature.
