Usage statistics show that one of the primary uses of a smartwatch is health and fitness tracking. As a result, Samsung's Galaxy Watch (see our full review) and Apple Watch Series 4 enhance and promote these features. Neither can provide as much as a focused GPS sports watch, but they are both sufficient for the masses.
Samsung and Apple have a different approach to the smartwatch, with Samsung going the more traditional route, as Galaxy Watch has a round design with a smooth rotating frame to help you navigate quickly. Apple continues to release its square Apple Watch with touch proofs and a small spinning digital crown used for navigation. Both are optimized for ease of use now when Apple and Samsung have released several generations of smartwatches.

Some important differences to note in the specs are that the Samsung Galaxy Watch has a mterterial (stainless steel) while lower price Apple Watch is aluminum and the higher price model is stainless steel. The Galaxy Watch is priced less than Apple Watch, and in some models it's half the price of an Apple Watch Series 4.
Battery life is interesting, with Apple advertising one full day (up to 18 hours) and Samsung's advertising four to six days. In my experience, the Samsung Galaxy Watch can realistically go around three days of normal use and it's always on display disable, but it lasts longer than Apple Watch.

A feature that Samsung supports, thanks to this long battery life, is sleep tracking. The latest version of Tizen, Samsung's portable OS, and Galaxy Watch support are advanced track tracking with REM, light and deep sleep mode identified when worn at night. Sleep is a very important health statistics and is an important feature missing in Apple Watch Series 4.
Health and wellbeing is the focus of both bells, with Apple focusing on heart rate tracking capabilities, as the new model will act as a single lead electrocardiogram that can indicate if You have a heartbeat irregularity. The latest generation of heart rate monitoring capabilities even helped ZDNets Jason Perlow discovers a heart irregularity that may have saved his life. Apple also gives Apple Watch a fallopian discovery, which can make it a very convincing product for older generations where cases can be very dangerous.
