Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Golf Edition smartwatch has been launched in South Korea, targetting professional golfers and enthusiast golfers. Samsung has launched a Golf Edition in its smartwatch lineup in the past. However, this will be the first time, the South Korean tech company’s Golf Edition smartwatch will come running on the WearOS platform. This is the same version of Google’s Android OS that powers up the Galaxy Watch 4. Furthermore, the latest Golf Edition smartwatch is capable of helping golf lovers improve their game.
This is a limited version of the Galaxy Watch 4 smartwatch that has the Smart Caddie app pre-loaded. The app is quite useful for golf players since it measures and shows their performance metrics. As a result, they can easily access details such as elevation, power, shot distance, and more. Aside from that, the app enables golf players to access maps of more than 40,000 golf courses around the world. As if that weren’t enough, it shows key details such as their automatic hole information recognition, satellite maps, aerial photos, and their actual measurements.

The Golf Edition smartwatch is available in a 40mm Silver, as well as a 44mm Black variant. The 40mm Silver version will set you back KRW 299,000 (about $256). The 44mm Black version, on the other hand, carries a steeper price tag of KRW 329,000 (about $281).

What Else Does It Offer?
As mentioned earlier, the Golf Edition smartwatch is a special product available for South Korean golfers. To recall, previously launched Golf Edition smartwatches are even available for stateside consumers. Although it boasts similar specifications, this special edition smartwatch comes with a slew of exclusive software features that makes it different from other Golf Edition smartwatches. The wearable has a Smart Caddy app that offers tips for a player’s shot after considering various courses data.
According to Samsung, the watch offers a detailed distance measurement function that discloses details about the height difference, as well as green undulation on the Smart Caddy app. This helps golfers to strategize their game operation. It is worth mentioning here that elevation difference information is available only in domestic golf courses. Aside from that, it offers a course strategy guide, which is based on the distance and shot history of a whopping 40,000 golf courses worldwide.
