Samsung Galaxy Watch 5


Samsung is back with its second Wear OS 3-powered smartwatch in the Galaxy Watch 5 – but is there enough here to warrant an upgrade?

The best example of Wear OS 3 ; New and improved sleep tracking ; Solid battery life for a Wear OS device ; Accurate HRM results

Barely any different to the Galaxy Watch 4 ; Temperature sensor is an afterthought ; The workout selection needs improving

The Galaxy Watch 5 is an incredible wearable when weighed up against its competitors. However, as a successor to the Galaxy Watch 4, it’s a huge letdown. The upgrades are few and far between, and there certainly isn’t enough on offer here to warrant...

Samsung Galaxy Watch5 and Watch5 Pro review


Samsung made a bold step last year by ditching its own Tizen OS for watches and moving over to Google's Wear OS with its own One UI skin on top. The bet...

Sapphire glass and good build quality, especially the titanium Pro model.

The non-Pro option comes with a subpar silicone band.

Still, if you've been holding off a smartwatch purchase due to the inadequate battery life, the Watch5 Pro may be what you've been waiting for. The 3-day battery life here is finally up to a level where charging no longer feels like a chore, and you...

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 review: peak of Android smartwatches


In 2021, the Galaxy Watch 4 stood out as one of Wear OS's best smartwatches. In 2022, the Galaxy Watch 5 does the same thing.

Lightweight, comfortable design Robust health tracking AMOLED screen looks excellent Easy access to Google apps Very fast charging speeds

Skin temperature tracking not yet available Falls short of battery life claims

“The Galaxy Watch 5 is far from an exciting upgrade over the Watch 4. But if you're getting your first Wear OS smartwatch or upgrading from an older model, it's one of the best available in 2022.”

Galaxy Watch 5 review: Should you go Pro?


The Galaxy Watch 5 is here — the workhorse of Samsung's new wearable range.

Sleek, timeless design ; Comfortable to wear and sleep with ; Vivid and legible display ; Fast charging means less time away from your wrist ; Wear OS is a joy to use

Battery life is still just okay ; Incremental changes from the previous generation ; Ecosystem issues - some features are exclusive to Galaxy phones

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 review


The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 has a new skin-temperature reader, more scratch-resistant display and a longer-lasting battery life. Here's our full review of why it's the best Samsung watch yet.

It's hard not to draw comparisons the Galaxy Watch and Apple Watch, as they've diverged as two different devices for two different product ecosystems. To me, it seems like the Galaxy Watch is following the Apple Watch's M.O. by making an annual minor...
