Apple Watch Series 4 vs Samsung Galaxy Watch

Apple and Samsung are going head to head in yet another technology market as comparisons can’t help but be drawn between their new smartwatch products.

PRICE WHEN REVIEWED
  • Samsung Galaxy Watch: From $329.99
  • Apple Watch Series 4: From $399
Apple and Samsung are famous for fighting over the top dog spot when it comes to the world of smartphones, but with the announcement of the Apple Watch Series 4 at the Apple Keynote early in September, we’re seeing them square off for that prized position on your wrist.


We’ve taken a hands-on look at the Galaxy Watch right here, and our Apple Watch Series 4 article rests just here if you’re looking for some deeper insight into either product.

We’re going to set them against each other to see which one should be the better option for you. Here we go!

PRICE
The new Apple Watch 4 costs anywhere between £399/$399 all the way up to £529/$529.

That is not a typo by the way. It’s the same price in pounds and dollars. Yup.

The Galaxy Watch is a little more reasonably priced starting at £279/329 up to £299/$349.

We’d expect the prices to look roughly like this, although perhaps without the gap being quite so substantial. The inclusion of UK pricing is also a welcome sight for those of us using the pound, too.

Apple does tend to charge a premium for its products, and there is very much in evidence here. Is that large gap in price justified? Read on.

DESIGN AND BUILD
The Galaxy Watch still holds the gorgeous circular display and the rotating bezel that Samsung has perfected at this point. Browsing through the menus is easy and satisfying.

The build quality, as you would expect from Samsung, is excellent. The feel of this is detracted slightly by the rubberised feel of the strap but the metal body of the watch is very sturdy, well put together and looks great.

The Gorilla Glass DX+ display protects the screen and while it is an upgrade from the Gear S3 it’s a little difficult to tell them apart aside from the silver casing.

The Apple Watch Series 4 has a 30% larger screen than that of the previous generation but is actually thinner than the series 3 while retaining the same case size.

The speaker is 50% louder and the microphone has been moved to the other side too, to prevent any echoing problems. An improved 64-bit dual-core processor is twice as fast than the previous iteration while cellular reception has improved thanks to the black ceramic and sapphire crystal rear.

The crown on the side of the watch now provides the utility to take accurate ECG, approved by the FDA in the USA.

SOFTWARE
Samsung’s Tizen software is in many ways better than Wear OS.

Tizen is attractive and well designed, and the circular menus and bezel make us believe that the circular approach is still the best way of interacting with the smartwatch. The software is compatible with Android 5.0 and Apple phones with iOS 9.0 and above.

It does, however, have much fewer third-party apps available when compared to its Apple counterpart.

The customisable interface for the Apple Watch Series 4 is a big win, allowing you to turn your watch from something focused around your business life to your perfect workout companion. What we saw of the live demonstration at the keynote event early in September looked fantastic.

  • 40/44mm screen
  • Apple S4 64-bit dual-core processor
  • Accelerometer
  • Gyroscope

Nokia 4.2 Review

At £150, Nokia's budget handset has to be compared to the very best cheap phones. How does it stack up?
Should I Buy The Nokia 4.2?
The 4.2 has shown that Nokia can still produce good hardware, and combined with the slick user interface on Android One it provides an enjoyable user experience. This fully featured modern handset produces consistently solid performance, with above average cameras and impressive battery life. 
However, it is let down by a low resolution screen, poor implementation of biometrics and some stubborn design choices.
