The biggest innovation concerns Samsung Health, which now includes indoor work-outs and also offers a function to to combine training if you do several activities in succession. The Health widget has been expanded with information about the different sleep phases.

Also new to these older clocks are the Theater and Hibernate for the moments when the wearer does not want to be disturbed by calls and notifications. These functions can be operated via the new Quick Panel, which has become easier to access in Tizen 4.0.0.2. Furthermore, the possibility to change music on the clock itself, the function to save concept messages and the support of more than a thousand emoji are worth mentioning.

The new bells software is currently only rolled out in the US, but 9to5Google expects other countries to follow soon.
