You get the same processor, RAM, and storage capabilities found in the newer Galaxy Watch 5 series, plus NFC, GPS, and a ton of health and fitness tracking features. The biggest issue is that the watch won't be getting updates for much longer, but if that isn't a concern for you, then the Galaxy Watch 4 remains a solid buy.
