On August 10, Samsung decided to launch its latest products including Galaxy Z Fold 4, Galaxy Z Flip 4, Galaxy Watch 5 and the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. We already know lots of details about these products but not everything.
Today, two latest leaked reports have fueled the excitement for the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. The two details namely the price and the battery. At the end of the previous month, we already know the US and South Korea now the well-known Twitter tipster SnoopyTech revealed the Canadian price, highlighting how the numbers should fall rather than rising.
Galaxy Watch 5 from 40 mm should cost 349 Canadian dollars, or the equivalent of 266 euros: considering that the Galaxy Watch 4 of the same size and without LTE connectivity at launch had a price of 269 euros, therefore, we can at least expect that the giant Korean has kept the same prices, without raising them as the June rumors suggested.
To complete the picture, the 44 mm Galaxy Watch 5 would cost 389 Canadian dollars, while the biggest difference would be attributable to the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro since unlike the Classic it will come in a single 45 mm version. , and not two (42 and 46mm respectively): in this case, we are talking about 559 Canadian dollars, which is around 430 euros at the exchange rate.
Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic are currently among the best smartwatches on the market, but they have two flaws: a non-exceptional battery (this is a common vulnerability to the whole sector among the most advanced proposals, both on the Wear OS side and on the Apple Watch) and slow charging.
With Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro it seems that Samsung has decided to offer a rather substantial upgrade on both fronts: not only will the battery be more capacious and the autonomy (especially that of the Pro) will be greater, but the recharge will be longer.
Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro confirmed the same magnetic charging disk, but it seems (again according to what was reported by SnoopyTech ) that the charger has gone from 5W to 10W, and moreover that the socket will no longer be USB-A but USB-C.
Not yet a lightning bolt of war, this no, but it is still a substantial improvement that should allow the Galaxy Watch 5 to charge up to 45% in 30 minutes. And therefore to be able to wear it more easily at night for sleep monitoring, with the awareness that in the morning between breakfast and shower the smartwatch can recharge enough to face a new day.
