The hands-on images only show off the classic model of the Galaxy Watch 4, which comes with a bezel. Sadly, there’s no detailed look at the new UI, with the images only displaying the initial setup screen.

Fitness focused

While the images don’t show the UI in action, SamMobile leaked a marketing video that does. The video focuses on standard fitness features such as step counting, heart rate monitoring, and sleep tracking.

Previously, it was rumored that watch would have a Bio-electrical Impedance Analysis sensor, which has now been confirmed in the video as noted by Android Authority. The sensor measures body composition, calculating a person’s percentage of fat and muscle.
