An In-Depth Review of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5

Pros

Cons

  • Costlier than the Galaxy Watch 4

It appears that Samsung has found its footing in the smartwatch market with the Galaxy Watch 5. No, it isn’t significantly different from the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 from a year ago, but the few improvements are nonetheless appealing despite being minor.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 has a battery life that is up to 10 hours long and a sapphire crystal glass display that makes it more resistant to scratches. The bottom curve has been modified to better suit wrists and enhances the surface area that actually makes touch with your skin, increasing sensor reading accuracy.

A skin-temperature reader is a new health sensor that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 has to offer. On the other hand, the watch is positioned to become, for the majority of people, the greatest Samsung watch and may even be the best smartwatch of the year. Before drawing any judgments, we’ll need to evaluate the performance, but for now, here are my initial thoughts after handling Samsung’s upcoming watch. You can pre-order the watches now, and they will be available on August 26.

Design

First impressions suggested that the digital bezel on the Galaxy Watch 5 was responsive enough. On the other hand, Samsung claims that the Galaxy Watch 5’s redesigned bottom curve increases the surface area for watch-to-skin contact, improving the accuracy of data gathered from the biometric sensor. The watch has an IP68 grade and continues to be water resistant up to 5ATM. Samsung claims that the sapphire crystal glass used in the display is 60% more resistant to scratches than standard glass.

Health and Fitness Tracking

The addition of a temperature analysis sensor, which seems to exist apart from Samsung’s 3-in-1 BioActive sensor, is the most significant new internal Galaxy Watch 5 feature. The BioActive sensor, which debuted last year, uses BIA to measure body composition, SpO2, and heart rate. On the underside of the Galaxy Watch’s casing, the skin-temperature reader is positioned slightly out of the center. The improved sleep coach on the Galaxy Watch 5 is also intended to provide you with actionable sleep strategies based on how well you are sleeping.

Wear OS Feature

Wear OS powered by Samsung, which the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 runs, is essentially Google’s smartwatch software on top of which various Samsung-exclusive apps, watch faces, and menus are overlaid. Additionally, it implies that the smartwatch should easily pair and sync with other Samsung devices that are part of the same user environment. The best feature of Wear OS 3 is that it comes with Google services like Gmail, Google Maps, and most recently, Google Assistant for Galaxy Watch devices.

Battery Life and Colours

With a 15% larger battery than the Galaxy Watch 4, the Galaxy Watch 5 offers a battery life of up to 50 hours. That’s roughly ten hours more than before.

Four colors are available for the Galaxy Watch 5: Graphite, Silver, Sapphire, and Pink Gold. Although Samsung sells a variety of replacement bands, it comes with silicone straps by default.

Final Verdict

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 appears to offer a reasonable number of small improvements. It does not make any major improvements, but it does enhance two features that smartwatch owners normally value highly: health tracking and battery life. Although the temperature sensor is particularly intriguing, there may be a good reason to wait to purchase if it is not now available.
