This New Smartwatch Will Help Improve Your ZZZs

You’ll wake up happier after a good night’s sleep.

Brought to you by

Sleeping is one of the most important functions for our body to repair itself, so if you’re not getting enough quality shut-eye then it could affect your mental and physical performance.

While sometimes it seems like sleep has become the ultimate luxury, getting a better night’s sleep could be as easy as wearing the new Samsung Galaxy Watch4.

Tracking your sleep patterns, so you can improve on what your body needs, is one of the smart additions to this ultimate connected smartwatch.  You access the Sleep Tracker via the Samsung Health App then after you download, these are the clever things your Galaxy Watch4 series can do for you:

1. Monitor your heart rate (HR)

Turn on the automatic HR function so it can measure stress levels, allowing your watch to track your sleep stages in real- time.

2. Record Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep

Toggle on to record and see just how much deep – think restorative – shut-eye you’re really getting each night. BTW the goal for an average adult is around 90mins during a 7-8 hour sleep.

3. Monitor blood oxygen levels

This can reveal if it falls below what the body actually needs to function normally.

4. Set up snore detection

Let’s be real, it’s probably best you know, right? Activate the Snore Detection Setting in Samsung Health, wear your Galaxy Watch4 to bed and place your phone near your head, as you got to bed. Your watch will detect how well you slept, with your phone’s microphone picking up and recording any snoring sounds – identifying how long and how often you snore throughout the night.

The next morning you get to review your sleep metrics and stats right from your wrist – or on your paired phone.  Tap on “Sleep Score” and you’ll find even more details about how you compare to the same age and gender group as well as info on best practices moving forward. A sleep history tab will store this info over days, weeks and months, so you have a record of your progress too.

But, of course, it’s not all about sleep. Galaxy Watch4 sports a whole host of cool new health and fitness features including GPS for tracking runs, electrocardiogram (ECG) support as well as measuring key fitness metrics – like skeletal muscle mass and body fat percentage – simply by standing still. It’ll also give you an idea of the healthy range for your sex, weight and height.

This is a smartwatch that’s not only performance-driven for the fitness fanatic in you but looks good too.  Expect a choice of two sleek designs, brand new hardware, top of the line specs and a new collaboration with Google, giving you access to the new operating system of the future – Wear OS Powered by Samsung.  This is a seamless connection with your smartphone so you can switch between all your favourite apps like Spotify, Calm, Strava and Google Maps – right from your wrist.

Tracking data to keep tabs on your health will keep you motivated to become your best self yet.
