Samsung Galaxy Watch5 and Samsung Galaxy Watch5 Pro, officially launched in Romania!
Samsung Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro, the new generation of wearable devices launched today by Samsung Electronics are announced to be a hopeful help for users. Thanks to new intuitive and advanced functions, much more powerful than the previous series, the two products will allow users to monitor, establish and overcome their health habits.
Samsung Galaxy Watch5 and Samsung Galaxy Watch5 Pro
The Galaxy Watch5 enhances the features that consumers rely on every day, while the Galaxy Watch5 Pro – the newest model in the Galaxy Watch range – is the most durable and advanced Samsung watch ever created. Users' goals and objectives can be more easily achieved with Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro.
Cutting-edge sensor technology helps users understand each other better
With a desire to better understand and act on individual health goals, Samsung provides in-depth monitoring and actionable insights designed to give users exactly the data they need on their journey to a healthier life.
Galaxy Watch5 is equipped with the unique BioActive sensor, which represents the next era in digital health monitoring. First introduced on the Galaxy Watch4 series, the BioActive Sensor uses a single, unique chip that combines three powerful sensors (optical heart rate, electrical heart signal and bioelectrical impedance analysis respectively) to provide comprehensive data on:
- heart rate,
- blood oxygen level
- the level of stress in the body.
In addition, users can get a clear picture of their heart health by monitoring their blood pressure and ECG – right from their wrist. As of 2020, Samsung has expanded these capabilities to 63 markets, including Romania.
With increased surface area and more direct contact with the wrist, the Galaxy Watch5 now tracks health metrics with even greater accuracy than the Galaxy Watch4. In addition, its powerful 3-in-1 BioActive Sensor works in combination with the other sensors that the Galaxy Watch5 has, including the newly introduced temperature sensor. The temperature sensor uses infrared technology for more accurate readings, even if the surrounding temperature changes. This opens up new possibilities for developers to extend health features and apps to provide new user experiences.
Holistic perspectives on health
Designed for everyday goals, Galaxy Watch5 offers a complete experience that takes into account not only fitness activities and physical exertion, but also the entire post-workout process, rest and recovery moments.
The body composition measurement function gives users the most complete overview of their health status, as well as an approach tailored to their needs – so that they can set their own goals, personalize workouts and track their progress. And when it's time to rest, the Galaxy Watch5 series is ready to provide them with recovery data, including post-cardio heart rate after an intense workout, as well as personalized hydration recommendations based on sweat output.
A good night's sleep is important for health, and that's why the Galaxy Watch5 helps users get a better night's sleep. They will be able to understand their sleep patterns through Sleep Scores, the feature that monitors sleep stages, detects snoring and blood oxygen levels.
Users can improve their sleep habits with Sleep Coaching, a one-month, guided and personalized program. Thanks to its integration with SmartThings, the Galaxy Watch5 can automatically set lights, air conditioners and TVs to predetermined values to create an ideal sleep environment. Additionally, users can sleep safe knowing that the enhanced fall detection feature notifies a predefined emergency contact should they accidentally fall out of bed.
Users don't have to worry about their smartwatch running out of battery or being damaged on rough terrain. The Galaxy Watch5 comes with a 13% larger battery and can track eight hours of sleep with just eight minutes of charging, making it 30% faster than the Galaxy Watch4.
An extra layer of durability protects the Galaxy Watch5. This year Samsung included its first Sapphire Crystal display on a smartwatch, which offers a 60% tougher outer layer so the watch remains reliable in everyday use.
Users can set their favorite song on Spotify, SoundCloud or Deezer with just their voice using the Google Assistant, and soon they will be able to use Google Maps directly from their wrist, without the need for a smartphone connection. In addition, One UI Watch4.5 provides a better typing experience, an easier way to make calls and a number of new accessibility features that make the Galaxy Watch a very intuitive device.
Galaxy Watch5 Pro, more features and greater durability for outdoor enthusiasts
Created for those who love to spend time outdoors, Galaxy Watch5 Pro is the newest addition to the Galaxy Watch portfolio. From hiking to cycling and beyond, the Watch5 Pro is ready for any challenge thanks to its premium materials. It features the same improved Sapphire Crystal display that better withstands any wear and tear and a durable titanium case that protects it. The Galaxy Watch5 Pro also comes with a D-Buckle Sport strap for extra durability.
Built to last, the Galaxy Watch5 Pro has the largest battery on a Galaxy Watch. It's 60% larger than the one on the Galaxy Watch4, which means it can keep up with users who want to conquer a new route.
They can take advantage of GPX, which is available for the first time on a Galaxy Watch. I can also go on a hike and record the activity, which I can share with other trail lovers in the Samsung Health app via Route Workout.
Users can also download hiking and biking trails while training for their next race. As they go hiking or biking, they can only pay attention to the road, away from the map thanks to the intuitive Turn-by-Turn directions they will receive at every turn. When they're ready to return home, the Galaxy Watch5 Pro will easily guide them there with Track back, meaning they'll travel the exact same route they came.
