Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro: At a glance
Samsung announced two models, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, on August 10, 2022 at its summer Unpacked event. The two watches share similar core features but differ regarding unique selling points and target audiences.
The Galaxy Watch 5 is a direct successor to the Galaxy Watch 4. It’s the lighter option and features the more intriguing colorway palette. The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is effectively the same offering at its core but includes a thicker, heavier body to accommodate a larger battery. It also gets a larger dial, a D-buckle strap, and comes with additional workout planning features. In addition, it trades the aluminum build used by the base Galaxy Watch 5 models for a titanium body with a protective lip around its face.
