Report: Galaxy Watch 4 runs Wear OS in Google ‘expansion,’ drops blood glucose sensor - 9to5Google
May 12, 2021 59 secs

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4 might be one of the most important smartwatches outside of the Apple Watch in quite some time as it merges Samsung’s hardware with Google’s Wear OS, and now yet another report is backing up that change.

Korean news outlet MT reports that the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Active will both be running on top of Google’s Wear OS.

This is the first time the Galaxy Watch 4 Active has been explicitly mentioned alongside the Wear OS rumor, though it was always implied.

A rough translation of the report from Korean to English mentions that Samsung and Google are collaborating on Wear OS for two reasons.

The Galaxy Watch 4, apparently, will also be leading the charge in an “expansion of wear OS.” It’s unclear exactly what this means, especially given the language barrier at play, but it sounds like more than just expanding the hardware Wear OS is available on.

The other, unfortunate point in this report is that Samsung is apparently dropping the blood glucose sensor from the Galaxy Watch 4.

As for a release window, the report mentions an August debut alongside Galaxy Z Fold 3, Flip 3, and Galaxy S21 FE.
