Yesterday was Samsung’s big day. The Galaxy S22, S22+ and S22 Ultra were presented, phones that we have already been able to test in our first impressions. With them came the new Tab S8, although there was no news at the smartwatch level. Despite this, Samsung has not forgotten its brand new Watch 4, and promises to update it for four years.

Samsung already offers more updates than Google on its phones and tablets, and it wants to do the same with watches. We’re going to tell you which Samsung smartwatches will get four years of updates, because that’s some of the best news for current and future owners of the company’s watches.

Four years of updates for the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and its successors

Samsung has made four years of updates to its Galaxy Watch 4 official, following in the footsteps of the new S-series phones and tablets. The company says the Galaxy Watch 4 and Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic will receive four system updates . operational, so they have a guaranteed long life.

They will thus come to compete with the Apple Watch, the only watches that have been updated during these years to date, since their life cycle is generally similar to that of the iPhone, with more years of updates than their direct competition.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch that will succeed the 4 will also be those four years old, so this family is now taking the new update policy until further notice. No other data was given on the frequency of updates, only the guarantee that the watches will receive all four versions of the operating system.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and its successors are at the forefront of system updates

With this policy, Samsung Watches are the first on Android to be updated for so long, which is great news given that the change frequency of a smartwatch is usually not as high as that of a phone. The entire Galaxy S22 family, Galaxy Tab S8 and Watch 4 thus guarantee years and years of updates.
