With a huge £80 off, whether you’re starting couch to 5k, training for a marathon or simply looking to create healthy habits that last, this could be the deal for you.

Crafted from aluminium, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 compliments your busy lifestyle and comes packed with a host of features designed to help you stay connected and set daily goals.

The watch has a built-in ECG monitor that helps you keep an eye on your blood pressure and heart rate, as well as a fitness tracker that automatically recognises when you’re working out.

In our review of the watch, our tester described it as “outstanding” and was particularly impressed by its ability to measure body composition. “Rather than considering your overall weight, you see a more detailed breakdown of the ratio of muscle, fat, bone and water in your body,” they said. “This is especially helpful for weight training and tracking muscle gain, situations where your apparent weight can remain stable while your actual body shape is changing.”

Aside from improving your fitness, the watch also lets you read and reply to texts, WhatsApp messages and social posts, pick up calls and add to your calendar. You can also change the song that’s playing on your phone with a simple tap, pay for your coffee with Samsung Pay and even ask Bixby what the weather is going to be like.

If you own an Android phone – especially a Samsung phone – our tester said the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is “the best smartwatch you can buy right now”. “Elegantly designed, powerful, and powered by Google’s revived Wear OS software, it marks a revival of the Android wearable scene,” they added.
