What you need to know
- Samsung has unveiled the Thom Browne edition of the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic.
- The limited-edition smartwatch will ship with three interchangeable straps and five preloaded Thom Browne watch faces.
- It will be available beginning on September 29 for $800.
Samsung's collaboration with American fashion designer Thom Browne is getting another offshoot. On Wednesday, the tech giant announced the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic Thom Browne Edition, a limited-release smartwatch that will go on sale on September 29 for $799.99.
The rhodium-plated smartwatch will come preloaded with five Thom Browne watch faces, and it will ship with three interchangeable straps, including leather, rubber, and fabric options. Like the original version, which is one of the best Android smartwatches to launch this year, the Thom Browne Edition is powered by Wear OS 3, so it comes with all the latest features of Google's updated OS for wearables.
As a smartwatch, the Galaxy Watch 4 Thom Browne Edition still keeps all the necessary fitness features offered by the standard models. This means the device can measure your blood oxygen, stress levels, water intake, and sleep patterns.
The luxury smartwatch also features the new BIA measurement tool designed to monitor your skeletal muscle mass, basal metabolic rate, body water and body fat percentage. However, the Thom Browne edition only supports Bluetooth with a 42mm size, unlike the original model which has both LTE and Bluetooth options.
Samsung's new edition of the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic is the latest Galaxy device to bear Thom Browne's artistic signature. The collaboration kicked off last year with the release of the first Thom Browne edition Galaxy device, the Galaxy Z Flip, during New York Fashion Week.
Most recently, Samsung introduced the Thom Browne edition of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Z Fold 3. That said, these limited-release devices may not be rolling out to every consumer.

Absolutely rediculous. No digital phone or watch can be a premium fashion thing. You are either Omega or Rolex, or you aren't. An $800 Galaxy watch 4 with a couple of exclusive bands is an imposter. Lol... I pity whomever buys / pays for this. But I will say the regular Galaxy watch 4 is terrific and a worthy upgrade to number 3... Granted, I didn't pay for mine... I got it as an airmiles.ca reward.
As much as I agree this thing is dumb. To be fair, it is plated in rhodium... That stuff isn't cheap.
who TF is thom brown and why do I care for thrice the price and no added features specific to the watch other than material?
