Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 — here’s how body composition could work – Tom's Guide

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 could pack a health sensor capable of changing how we understand our bodies, if a premature Amazon listing for Samsung’s upcoming smartwatch included accurate specs.

Under the “special feature” section in the since-deleted Galaxy Watch 4 online product page, we see several familiar perks like sleep tracking, blood oxygen (SpO2) reading and heart rate monitoring. But this smartwatch, which could cost around $275 if the listed price translates precisely, also boasts “body composition analysis.” Such a feature has been rumored in recent weeks.

Samsung is likely waiting until an imminent Unpacked event, believed to take place on August 11, to reveal how body composition analysis on the Galaxy Watch 4 works. But since the Amazon listing apparently confirmed it’s coming, we can take some guesses as to the health data it’ll provide. We also can begin to address potential concerns that come with it.
