Samsung has brought its web browser to the new Galaxy Watch 4 based on Wear OS, so users can access the internet on their wrist.
And browsing by the watch doesn’t seem like the ideal way to surf the web for an extended period of time. But it may be useful for small tasks such as checking a name or searching for a place.
The Galaxy Watch 4 is the best watch you can buy with Wear OS today, and a large part of that is due to Samsung’s software add-ons.
The browser was originally available for the older company’s working hours system Tizen. But Samsung Internet via Galaxy Watch 4 is a modified browser that allows users to access web pages and websites that might not otherwise be available from their wrist. The app is now available from During Google Play Store.
An obvious question about a web browser on your wrist is how this small circular screen is able to show entire web pages. The company’s answer comes through gestures.
A guide appears when you go to your first web page. This guide explains that swiping on both sides of the screen allows users to reach the corners of a web page.
Meanwhile, swiping up reveals options for bookmarks, zoom mode, and a shortcut to send the web page directly to your connected phone.

Samsung Browser arrives on Galaxy Watch 4
The browser’s opening page displays a list of bookmarks that sync with your phone (with Samsung Internet only). The search button opens a page where you can navigate to websites and use the search terms of the search engine of your choice.
The page defaults to Google. But you can also choose Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, or Bing.
Although the application is difficult to use. But it may be useful nonetheless. Users can still access the pages through their smartwatch instead of having to pull out the phone.
It is noteworthy that there are many Internet browsers such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari. But when it comes to browsing the web via a smartwatch, the options are limited.
And by bringing its own browser to its latest smartwatch, Samsung may make things simpler for smartwatch wearers while also reminding people of the presence of the browser.
