It has been confirmed not too long ago that the South Korean company, Samsung, will launch its next smartwatch model this year, the Watch 5 Pro. Being a Pro model, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will definitely bring some significant features, compared to the regular Galaxy Watch models. We already have a number of credible leaks about the smartwatch. Evidently, it will be a 45mm smartwatch with titanium chassis to ensure good durability in many situations. It will have a 1.36-inch display with 450 x 450 resolution and an AMOLED panel. The sapphire glass will also protect the display against daily wear and tear. Apparently, it will have up to eighty hours of runtime on a single charge, thanks to its high-capacity 590mAh battery. If true, this will be a huge improvement over earlier Samsung Galaxy Watch models. Regardless of the variants, all Galaxy Watch 5 models will be powered with Samsung Exynos W920 to ensure smooth operations, even during the busiest day.
Depending on your budget, you can get up to 16GB of internal storage, which is more than enough for daily activities. There will be also 4G LTE variants, which include an eSIM slot. Being a capable and powerful smartwatch, it will have some heft to it, weighing 46.5 grams and measuring 10.5mm thick. This means the Pro model is nearly twice as heavy compared to the regular Galaxy Watch 5 model. Pricing for the device will be substantially higher, starting from $469. It will arrive with the latest user interface, the One UI Watch 4.5, which includes various new features, including a new QWERTY keyboard with a swipe, handwriting, and dictation features. If you pair the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro with a dual-SIM smartphone, you can decide which SIM card to choose. There are also other watch face personalization and customizations, which makes it more suitable for many users, whether they are professionals or casual users.
As an outdoor device, the combination of durable chassis and long runtime will be appealing to many users. With casual outdoor usage, it is possible to keep the smartwatch running for four days, especially if the display is turned off when not being used. For busy individuals, the 10W charging capability can fill the battery from zero to 45 percent charge in just 30 minutes, which is quite decent for a smartwatch. This device will be a tough competitor for the Apple Watch Series 8. Alternatively, you may choose Garmin Fenix, which also has a tough case and sapphire display. Based on recent information, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will shape up to be an excellent successor to the current Galaxy Watch 4. The concept of mating up fashionable and rugged design sounds quite interesting. Coupled with long battery runtime, it will be an interesting wearable, especially for those who have been restricted by a smartwatch with low battery life. Right now, we will need to see whether Apple Watch Series 8 will offer something worthwhile to counter Samsung’s next high-end smartwatch.
