The Apple Watch may be largely responsible for transforming smartwatches from mini-phones to dedicated health-tracking devices, but rival Samsung is taking things to the next level with the new Galaxy Watch4.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch4 offers the most thorough assessment of physical fitness and wellness of any smartwatch thanks to its new BioActive Sensor. The 3-in-1 sensor includes Optical Heart Rate, ECG, and Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis, allowing the watch to detect AFib, monitor blood pressure, and measure blood oxygen levels. The watch can even calculate body composition, capturing 2,400 data points in 15 seconds to give off measurements for things like skeletal muscle, basal metabolic rate, body water, and body fat percentage. Powering all of this is the brand new Wear OS Powered by Samsung, an operating system that Samsung co-developed with Google. Available in a 40 or 44mm case, the Samsung Galaxy Watch4 starts at $250, while the more premium “Galaxy Watch4 Classic” with a rotating bezel comes in at 42 or 46mm and starts at $350.

Purchase: $250+
