'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?
ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.
When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.
ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.
Keeping up with your fitness is tough, especially when the motivation to work out isn't there. But if you're motivated by competition, this device could be a game-changer for you. With the Samsung Galaxy Smart Watch 4 Classic, you can connect with friends, encourage each other throughout the day, and track a leaderboard of who has the most steps -- among other statistics.
Additionally, this watch has many great features including sleep-tracking, oxygen readings during workouts, an ECG monitoring system to detect irregular heart rhythms (or atrial fibrillation), and more.
By just touching your wrist, you can get information about body fat, muscle, water levels, and your BMI. The watch also connects to your phone, allowing you to receive messages, stay up-to-date on alerts, and stream music with just a few taps.
