The leaks surrounding the upcoming Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro are just getting more pressing. Design, materials, autonomy, sizes… Let’s take a full look at the next Samsung connected watches.
Last year, Samsung took the top spot in smartwatches running Wear OS, with the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic being the only ones to offer the latest version of the operating system, Wear OS 3. The result: It was real cardboard.
This year, the situation should change, with the arrival of the Pixel Watch, as well as other players equipped with the operating system (Fossil, Mobvoi, Tag Heuer …), Samsung will have to step up its game with the irreplaceable Watch 5s. We are evaluating the various information that was leaked.
A very professional classic
The first point of distinction with the Galaxy Watch 4 range, this time Samsung will introduce the Pro version of the Galaxy Watch 5. Unsurprisingly, it will be the larger version.
Even more surprisingly, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro could completely replace the classic in the range, thus retaining two Galaxy Watch models, instead of going for three.
The Pro version will also include premium materials to say the least: sapphire crystal for the dial and titanium for the case. It is not yet known if every Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will be entitled to this or if a less expensive option will also be offered.
In addition, the new Watch series will integrate a new version of Wear OS 3, within its miniature version of Samsung called One UI Watch, without knowing at this point what additions the Korean company has under its hat.
The autonomy of the watch largely depends on its size. Regarding the Galaxy Watch 5, there will be three models in two sizes, small format around 40 to 42 mm, large format 44 to 46 mm. The more premium Pro version should only come in one size, which is the largest.
In terms of battery capacity, we can expect small gains for the smallest models, from 247 mAh 4 to 276 mAh 5 40 or 42 mm. There will also be a very large 572mAh battery, a 58% increase compared to the 361mAh in the Galaxy Watch 46mm.
health and sports
Who said the new connected watch doesn’t necessarily mention new health measures or a sensor. In fact, all watches today are equipped with the same set of sensors from a certain price range and will rather be distinguished Across Their interface, their ecosystem or even the accuracy of their measurements, whether for sports activity or a simple GPS.
However, Samsung will be actively working on adding a new sensor. Just like Apple in the Apple Watch, Samsung will try to integrate a thermometer capable of measuring skin temperature and determining body temperature. but
Galaxy Watch 5 price and release date
At this point, no pricing has been leaked for the future Galaxy Watch 5. However, we can count on the prices of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. The latter was trading between 269 euros (in Wi-Fi and 40mm) and 349 euros in (in 4G and 44m). There is every reason to think that if the Pro version had included titanium and sapphire crystal, the Note might be more salty.
On paper, we also expect the Galaxy Watch 5 to be on the same calendar as its predecessors, namely the beginning of August 2022. Last year, Samsung took the opportunity to introduce its latest foldable smartphone, so we expect it to be the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 4. and Z Flip 4.
