Design Story

This is the key visual image of Galaxy Watch4 Design Story.

The modern society respects individuality and today’s generation focuses on the self. People choose items that fit their preferences and live lives that best suit their personalities. Following these changes, smartwatches are drawing attention as an item of self-expression that goes beyond its role as an accessory for your wrist.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch4 is faithful to the fundamentals and upholds the values favored by the new generation. The perfectly round shape inherits the unique identity of the Samsung Galaxy Watch series, and the broad selection of straps caters to various personalities and tastes. It expresses a clear identity and contemporary values for today’s users.

“We used the perfect shape of a circle as the core concept to capture the originality of the Galaxy Watch and preserve its identity as a watch.”

One Core Element

The circle is the original identity of the Samsung Galaxy Watch. It is a simple yet perfect form that resembles most existing watches. The Galaxy Watch series has used the circle as its core design element from the very beginning.

Samsung Electronics designers worked to create a user-friendly structure with basic watch-like qualities rather than complicated features and deliberated on ways to differentiate the Samsung Galaxy Watch. By removing unnecessary decorative elements and focusing on the essence, the designers achieved a watch design that could be a long-term, appealing partner to anyone’s wrist.

One Identity

The Samsung Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch4 Classic share a single design language and unravel a consistent identity. A seamless line from the screen to the body frame and strap is applied to both models based on the essence of the circle. Instead of pursuing differentiated designs of minimalistic and classic watch models as before, designers wanted to establish an identity centered on the circle to deliver a bold and unique impression of the Galaxy Watch. Through a refined form that can best express the essence of the watch, both models carry one unique voice under the Galaxy Watch brand.

Seamless Unity

The Samsung Galaxy Watch4 strap is seamlessly and effortlessly connected to the watch body. Samsung Electronics designers created a silhouette that serves as an outline that encompassed the circular frame to put more emphasize on the circular screen. The body line design is not only crucial when establishing aesthetic appeal, but also is an important element that provides optimal fit for users. Designers carried out countless mock-up tests to create the slimmest and most flexible line design with a natural and snug fit on the wrist.

Meticulous Design

A smartwatch can carefully manage movement and health status as its constantly in contact with the user’s body. Samsung Electronics designers focused on this monitoring role of smartwatches and considered ways to improve fit and stability. The result is the H-Wing strap. The H-Wing strap connects with the screen and helps the sensors underneath the watch firmly attach to the wrist. A secure fit provides a stable, ergonomic fit with greater accuracy when measuring heart rate or ECG.

Material Evolution

Samsung Electronics designers made sure to capture every detail in the process of creating a strap with both aesthetics and functionality. The Hybrid Leather Band was designed with appropriate and meticulous use of materials in accordance with these standards. The exterior is made of leather, while the interior is made with sweat-resistant FKM (Fluoroelastomer). Although the exterior and interior sides of the strap are made from different materials, they are naturally harmonized with unified colors.
