Samsung just launched the new Galaxy Watch5 series that includes Galaxy Watch5 and Watch5 Pro in India, after these were introduced earlier this week. These retain the 1.2″ / 1.4″ Super AMOLED screen, and Exynos W920 5nm processor, but feature Sapphire glass protection and run One UI Watch 4.5 on top of WearOS.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro share similar specifications, except for the fact that the latter has a more durable titanium casing compared to the Armor Aluminum casing on the former. These feature a 5ATM + IP68 rating for dust and water resistance and are MIL-STD-810G compatible.
These feature BioActive Sensor that uses a single unique chip that combines three powerful health sensors – Optical Heart Rate, Electrical Heart Signal and Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis – to deliver extensive readings including heart rate, blood oxygen level, and even stress level.
The batteries of the Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro are 13% and 60% larger, respectively, than in the Watch4. Furthermore, One UI Watch4.5 provides a more comprehensive typing experience, a more convenient way to initiate calls, and a slew of new accessibility features that make the Galaxy Watch more intuitive.
