A Samsung presented news for the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 this Wednesday (20). In addition to the new watchfaces and the option to customize it at the time of purchase through Bespoke Studio, the smart watch and the Galaxy Buds 2 won a new edition made in partnership with the Kitsuné House. The South Korean brand also announced the Galaxy Z Flip 3 Bespoke Edition in the second part of Galaxy Unpacked.
The event focused on new options to make Samsung products even more customizable. Among the novelties is the Bespoke Studio, a platform that offers options to customize the look of the company’s gadgets through the South Korean brand’s website. This is the case of Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic.
The new option takes us back to the days of Moto Maker, the old Motorola platform for personalizing smartphones, such as the 3rd generation Moto G. In addition to choosing the color of the case, consumers can also select the shades that will adorn the bracelets. There are also options to choose the style and material of the bracelets.
Samsung also introduced four new watchfaces to the Galaxy Watch 4: Info Brick, Basic Dashboard, Weather Center and Live Wallpaper. In addition, there are improvements to the My Photo+ themes, to include GIFs, and Animals, to add up to four complications to present more information about the pet background.

This is the case of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Maison Kitsuné Edition, which takes the brand’s little fox to the look, the interface and even the watch charger. Galaxy Buds 2 also won a customized version by the brand.
Brand details can also be taken to mobile. The devices bring a card that, when read via NFC, customizes the Android interface with wallpapers, icons and the like with the brand’s visual language. Sales of new editions of the watch and phone start this Wednesday (20) in “selected markets”.
Clock gains fall detector upgrades and more
Watches also received other features. According to the manufacturer, users can now adjust the Galaxy Watch 4’s sensitivity so that the watch is able to detect drops “even when you’re standing still”. You can also set up an emergency notification that will be sent to up to four contacts.
In addition, owners of an eligible Samsung watch can enjoy a free 60-day Strava subscription. The novelty is valid for Galaxy Watch, Watch Active, Watch Active 2, Watch 3, Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic. The new watches also gained new gesture controls.
“Some users may not be eligible for this trial if they have previously signed up for two or more Strava trial offers, or if they have been a subscriber within the past six months,” they warned. “The availability of the Strava service varies by market.”
The update will begin to be released this Wednesday (20). “Availability may vary by market or operator,” they said. “The update will initially be available on Bluetooth versions of the Galaxy Watch 4 series and will be rolled out to LTE versions shortly thereafter.”
