On February 9th, the day of its next Unpacked event, Samsung also flipping an update that improves some of the health and wellness features of the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic. While watches have been able to perform body composition scans for a long time, the update adds information about those results with Chris Hemsworth’s Centr app. Their partnership gives Watch 4 owners access to a 30-day free trial of the app, which typically only lasts seven days.

Samsung is releasing a new range target feature for runners and cyclists that gives you a way to preset the duration and distance you want to cover or the number of sets for your workout. After entering these details, the Watch 4 will be able to create a custom training session for them that alternates high-intensity and low-intensity workouts.

Lastly, Samsung is rolling out a new sleep training program with the update that will assign users one of eight sleep symbol animals that represent their sleep type. The program determines your sleep animal by tracking its sleep pattern over seven days and asking them to complete two surveys. He will then guide them through a four to five week training program with missions, checklists and regular reports to help them improve their sleep quality. To help users sleep better, going forward, Samsung will also automatically turn off SmartThings-enabled lights once the Watch 4 determines the user is asleep.

In addition to these health and wellness updates, the company is releasing new watch face colors, digital watch faces and bracelet colors, including burgundy and cream. Samsung also revealed that an upcoming update will allow users to stream YouTube Music over WiFi or LTE on their Watch 4 and that Google Assistant will be available on devices in the coming months.
