New Galaxy Watch5 series is packed with insightful sleep tracking, personalised design, plus enhanced durability that shape everyday health and wellness habits
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced the Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro – shaping health and wellness habits with intuitive insights, advanced features, and even more powerful capabilities. The Galaxy Watch5 enhances the features that consumers rely on every day, while the Galaxy Watch5 Pro – the newest addition to the Galaxy Watch lineup – is Samsung’s most durable and feature-packed watch yet. These new devices are a commitment to users that their goals and milestones can be met, and Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro are there to help.
“We’re dedicated to giving our Galaxy Watch community the tools, data and resources needed to not only understand their overall health and wellness better, but to coach them on their journey,” said Dr. TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics. “With Samsung’s groundbreaking BioActive Sensor, we’re empowering users with the most complete picture of their health-related insights yet.”
Cutting-edge Sensor Technology to Better Understand You
With a growing desire to better understand and act on individual health goals, Samsung has set out to provide in-depth monitoring and practical data, offering users the information they need to help them along their health and wellness journey. Galaxy Watch5 is equipped with Samsung’s unique BioActive Sensor that drives the next era of digital health monitoring. First introduced on the Galaxy Watch4 series, the BioActive Sensor uses a single unique chip that combines three powerful health sensors – Optical Heart Rate, Electrical Heart Signal and Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis – to deliver extensive readings that include heart rate, blood oxygen level, and even stress level. In addition, users can get a deeper understanding of their heart health by monitoring blood pressure and ECG – right from their wrist. Since 2020, Samsung has expanded these capabilities to 63 markets including five new – Bolivia, Nicaragua, Réunion Island, Türkiye and Venezuela – to ensure that everyone can better track heart health, every day.
With an increased surface area and more direct contact with your wrist, Galaxy Watch5 tracks health metrics now with even greater accuracy than Galaxy Watch4. Plus, its powerful 3-in-1 BioActive Sensor works in combination with the other sensors of Galaxy Watch5 series.
Holistic Health Insights to Enhance Everyone’s Wellness Journey
Designed for everyday wins, Galaxy Watch5 offers a comprehensive end-to-end experience that goes beyond fitness activities and into the post-workout, rest, and recovery process. The Body Composition measurement tool provides a complete snapshot of the user’s overall health, providing them with a tailored approach to set goals, guide them through personalised workouts, and track progress. And when it’s time to rest, the Galaxy Watch5 series empowers users with recovery data, including post-cardio heart rate after an intense workout, and customised recommendations on water consumption based on sweat loss.
A good night’s rest is important in wellness, and that’s why we’re helping users have a better night’s sleep. Understand sleep patterns through Sleep Scores that monitor stages of sleep, along with snore detection and blood oxygen levels.
Like the Watch4 Series, the new Watch5 Series support blood pressure measurement, and users can detect an AFib irregular heartbeat, measure their blood oxygen level, and calculate their body composition. Our Body Composition measurement tool gives users a deeper understanding of their general health and fitness, with key measurements like skeletal muscle, basal metabolic rate, body water and body fat percentage. You can easily check your body composition from your wrist with just two fingers.
No need to worry that your watch may run out of power or get damaged in rough terrain; Galaxy Watch5 comes with 13% larger battery, with up to 40 hours of battery life. This provides eight hours of sleep tracking with just eight minutes of charging, which is 30% faster than Galaxy Watch4. An extra layer of durability protects the Galaxy Watch5. This year, we’ve included our first smartwatch display featuring a Sapphire Crystal display, which offers a 60% harder outer layer, so your watch remains reliable in day-today use.
Cue up your favourite song on Spotify with just your voice using Google Assistant. And coming soon, find your way using Google Maps from your wrist without a smartphone connection. Music and audio lovers will appreciate updates that include new apps like SoundCloud and Deezer. Additionally, One UI Watch4.5 offers a fuller typing experience, an easier way to make calls, and a host of new accessibility features that make the Galaxy Watch more intuitive.
