Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Overview
Design and Display
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 (also the Watch 5 Pro) is the first smartwatch from Samsung that features a sapphire crystal display. Samsung says that it is 60% harder than the Gorilla Glass DX+ used on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4.
Unlike the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro’s titanium frame, the frame of the vanilla Watch 5 is made up of aluminium. The watch is certified to 5ATM and IP68 standards for protection against water, and MIL-STD-810H — the 2019 version of US Military Standard.
The 40mm model, which has a 1.2-inch display, weighs 28.7g, while the 44mm variant is slightly heavier at 33.5g. The 44mm model has a 1.4-inch display. Both models have a Super AMOLED panel.
The device comes with 1.5GB RAM and 16GB internal storage.
Health and Features
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 comes with Samsung’s BioActive Sensor, which was introduced on the Galaxy Watch 4 series. The sensor can measure optical heart rate, electrical heart signal (ECG), and bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA). Sadly, the ECG feature is not yet available in Nepal.
The Watch 5 series also introduces a temperature sensor that uses infrared technology for measuring body temperature. Like before, it can monitor sleep stages and sleep patterns, along with snore detection and blood oxygen levels.
If the user trips, the Samsung Galaxy Watch’s fall detection will notify the emergency contact if there is a network connection.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 runs on One UI Watch 4.5 on top of Google’s Wear OS 3.5. Deezer and Soundcloud will soon be available on the new Wear OS, allowing for music listening from the watch without the need for a phone nearby.
Later this year, Google will push a feature that lets you use Google Maps on the watch without the need for a smartphone.
Connectivity and Battery
The smartwatch supports Bluetooth 5.2 and dual-band Wi-Fi 4 for connectivity. It also has NFC and support for GPS, Glonass, Beidou, and Galileo.
As for the battery, the Watch 5 has a 13% larger battery than the Galaxy Watch 4. The 44mm model has a 410mAh battery, whereas the 40mm has a 284mAh battery.
It also supports faster wireless charging. Samsung claims in around 30 minutes, the watch’s battery can go from 0% to 45%. With just eight minutes of charging, Samsung says that the watch can provide eight hours of sleep tracking.
