For Samsung smartwatch it means health, and the fifth generation of Galaxy Watch represents a clear evolution in the help given by technology in the relationship between a person and his body.
Two dial sizes available, 40 mm and 44 mm, always round dial to maintain compatibility with apps already developed.
Samsung has changed the sensor on the back: BioActive, this is the name of the sensor introduced last year on Watch 4, manages with a single processor to manage three different health sensors, heart rate (optical), electrical heart signal and bioelectrical impedance analysis. Thanks to the larger surface and better adhesion to the wrist, the new version is even more precise in detecting heart rate, blood oxygen levels and stress levels, and is now able to work together with the other sensors present among the such as that of temperature detection.
A product designed not only for sportsmen but also for those who want to keep the state of the body under control: Samsung has improved the interface making it productive and now, after having done the complete body analysis, the Watch can also suggest and propose workouts customized to improve. Tips that also arrive for those who train, with Galaxy Watch5 offering recovery data and personalized advice on the amount of water to be taken based on the liquids lost by sweating.
News also for sleep: Galaxy Watch5 automatically activates the default settings of lights, air conditioners and televisions connected via Smarthings in order to create the most conciliatory environment for a night’s rest. Also present is the fall detection function: it sends a message to the emergency contact in case the user falls out of bed at night and does not react.
They also improve endurance and autonomy: Galaxy Watch 5 has 13% increased battery compared to the previous model and has a sapphire front glass that is virtually impossible to scratch.
The real novelty, however, is Galaxy Watch5 Pro: it is made of reinforced sapphire glass and has a titanium case with a protruding touch bezel to protect the display. The dial is wider, 45 mm, and we are faced with a device designed specifically for the outdoors.
Samsung, thanks to the wider body, has managed to insert an even larger battery, 60% more than Watch 4. To make the Watch designed for hikers “pro”, however, is the software: the user can in fact load GPX cartography tracks and the system also has a Track Back mode that brings the user back to the starting point backwards on the route taken.
