Samsung announces Galaxy Watch4 Black Yak Edition
The Samsung Galaxy Watch4 unveiled last August is offered in multiple colors, but it also has special editions, including the Thom Browne Edition, Bespoke Edition, Maison Kitsune Edition, PXG Golf Edition, and Wooyoungmi Edition. Today, Samsung added one more to the list, dubbed Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Black Yak Edition.
Samsung partnered with South Korean outdoor clothing brand Black Yak, which is where this limited edition Galaxy Watch4 gets its name from. The smartwatch is aimed at mountaineers and supports Black Yak's eco-friendly campaigns.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Black Yak Edition comes in 40mm and 44mm sizes and features a special watch face that changes color from red to green during lunchtime (12PM to 1PM) when disposable products are consumed, serving as a reminder to the users to clean the disposable items.
This is associated with Black Yak's Green Yak Campaign, which includes the PlustIC (portmanteau of Plus and Plastic) campaign to recycle PET bottles and the Clean Mountain Campaign that promotes plogging (picking up trash while jogging).
Additionally, the Galaxy Watch4 Black Yak Edition features mountaineering and hiking modes, and you can even track your route with GPS. Altitude information is provided as well.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Black Yak Edition's 40mm version is priced at KRW279,000 ($220/€210) and the 44mm model at KRW309,000 ($245/€230). It will go on sale in South Korea starting June 15 through Samsung's official website, with the retail package including an exclusive Black Yak strap, Black Yak tumbler bag, and a 40% discount coupon on Black Yak products.
Samsung said the Galaxy Watch4 Black Yak Edition is a product that pursues smart outdoor activities and sustainable eco-friendly values, and it plans to collaborate with Black Yak in the future on various projects, such as developing applications for outdoor activities.
