The latest Samsung smartwatch Galaxy watch 5 pro is the most premium smartwatch that the company produced until now. The watch has a solid build, and the rugged looks of the titanium body and the strong sapphire glass add an adventurist appeal to the new Samsung watch that belongs to a premium class. The big watch is big in the true sense as it can easily compete with famous smartwatch brands like Mont Blanc and Garmin. The watch design makes it clear that it’s an exclusive adventure watch that can be your perfect companion in all types of outdoor activities. Whether on a trekking trip or engaging in heavy workouts or extreme sports, the watch is a must-have for all occasions, besides serving as a regular fitness accessory.
Galaxy Watch 5 Pro – Light and Comfortable
Despite being an extensive watch of 45 mm size, the Samsung new watch isn’t heavy but relatively light and weighs 46.5 grams compared to the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, which weighs 52 grams. Moreover, the new watch is slimmer by a millimeter than the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. Therefore, you can comfortably wear the watch for longer periods without ever feeling uneasy. The magnetic strap design is not only new but offers enormous convenience in wearing the watch comfortably by fine-tuning the setting of the strap at any desired position. The strap design perfectly complements the watch design and looks gorgeous. The strap material prevents too much sweating.
Touch Dial and Display
The most notable deviation in the new Galaxy watch design is the touch dial that replaces the traditional rotating bezel in smartwatches. It seems that Samsung’s practical considerations for making an adventure watch compelled them to choose the touch-sensitive rotating dial to reduce the chances of damage or excessive dust accumulation. However, the touch dial remains protected from all sides by the protruding bezels that ensure its convenient use.
The Samsung new watch has a 1.4-inches super AMOLED display of 450×450 pixels. The colors, sharpness of images, and details are highly satisfactory. The display is so bright that you can view it under direct sunlight.
The Samsung new watch makes use of the Wear OS 3.5 operating system that has been a staple choice for Samsung’s other smartwatches. However, the Wear OS 3.5 operating system comes with the One UI Watch 4.5 update. It forms a fantastic combination of Samsung’s health and fitness features and Google apps.
Users can import GPX format workout routes from their smartphones with the help of the Route Workout feature or by syncing their routes. The backtrack feature ensures the safety of users as it helps them return to their starting point if they deviate from their trekking route. The watch also supports turn-by-turn navigation assisted by a voice and vibration guide.
The Galaxy watch 5 pro has the biggest battery among all other Samsung smartwatches. The 590 mAh battery can last for 3 days of mixed usage on a single charge. The automatic detection features track all your activities accurately.
