Dimension and Weight
Apple Watch Series 4 is lighter and smaller than Samsung Galaxy Watch by 2mm. However, classic solidness comes from Samsung, while Apple offers modern look.
Their batteries are charged easily without cord. However, Galaxy Watch has longer life, while up to 18 hours battery life comes from Apple Watch 4 series.
Both have dual core processors from different sources. Smart watches are not really hard exploited unlike smartphones, tablets and laptops. Due to small display the user wants only one app running. That’s why interaction with the watch is less. Operating systems, however, are different: Tizen and Watch OS.
Apple made nice move in making Series 4 storage biggest. Nevertheless, the wearable tech fans are not into large memory devices yet. We can only expect that large storage will become a trend for smartwatches.
Almost every connection spec is same in both devices. Most users don’t really recognize the connectivity specs as important as they expect everything is already inside by default.
In sensors comparison, there is one difference that brings a benefit to Apple user. ECG electrode feature delivers monitoring the user heart’s electric activity process. Samsung could not offer it inside Galaxy Watch.
In pricing, Samsung always provides lower price tag than Apple. Difference is huge by almost $200. Units sold number can amaze Samsung. However, a revenue in US dollars might cheer up the Apple’s Finance executives.
They are not the best but good for wearable device fans who will never be tired of charging them every 18 hours or 4 days. Nothing can replace good old automatic watch that never stops. Just shake hands to charge.
