Samsung now has its internet browser on its new Wear OS powered Galaxy Watch 4 according to reports from 9to5Google. The company also has its browser on its older Tizen-based smartwatches.
Browsing on a tiny screen for long might not be ideal, but its perfect for checking up locations and quick info. It reduces the burden of bringing out your smartphones in traffic, especially when the smartwatch has LTE.
A month ago Samsung displayed a set of 6 new sustainable limited edition watch bands for its Galaxy watch 4. These bands are made of sustainable and recyclable materials, including Apple peels. Lol, not the company, the actual fruit skin with prices starting at $39.99.

The South Korean company partnered with fashion designer Sami Miró to design the watch bands. “I am proud that we sourced sustainable materials for the entire collection,” says Miró
It’s important to use sustainable materials in the production process regardless of the actual product. That way we can reduce our carbon imprint on our planet. Apple’s decision to ship its smartphones without chargers was sustainable too.
Interestingly, the “Midnight Black” and “Stratus Sky” bands are made entirely out of apple peel skin ” from the fruit industry,” says Samsung. The four others (“Aurora Night,” “Cloud Navy,” “Earth Sunrise,” and “Dawn Atlas”) use synthetic materials. This material is thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), which Samsung claims is recyclable.
Also, “the neutral Stratus Sky and Midnight Black watchbands transition seamlessly between any outfit – from day to Night.” “It has the premium look of leather but is completely vegan and cruelty-free.”
While these are the very first sustainable bands for any of the Samsung Galaxy watches; we expect other smartwatch companies like Apple, Fitbit and others to join the trend. Wear OS has been receiving a lot of love lately, with constant updates from Google and app developers.
