But is the Watch 5 a worthwhile buy? Possibly, if you've not owned a Watch, but if you're an owner of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, then we'd say the upgrades are all not too different from the winning formula.

The pros of Samsung Galaxy Watch 5

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5's body and battery have bigger specs than the Watch 4, and it fits comfortably on your wrist. Watch 5 also supports both Google Maps and Assistant, with added functions like the body composition monitor, sleep tracking and skin temperature sensor. It makes for a great health-tracking device if you're into numbers.

The Watch 5 also automatically tracks activities like running/walking, rowing and elliptical machine activity, and swimming. You can also choose from added cool activities like yachting and even Pilates. One user was happy with the sleep tracking function: "This watch is wonderful, I'm rather impressed with the way it can be so accurate with my sleep patterns (as I never sleep very well). All the different little apps that work so well with it."

You have the option to tag on to other third-party and Google apps including Google Maps, Wallet, Assistant and more. Your Watch 5 can pair with most Android phones, but the features are reserved for Samsung phone users.

The battery life is the star here as the Watch 5 44mm model scores higher than the Watch 4.

Impressively, the Watch 5 scored 4.5 with over 8,800 ratings over at Amazon.

The cons of Samsung Galaxy Watch 5

Compared to the 44mm model, the 40mm model is said to have lesser endurance, but this also typically relies on your daily activities. Some users also complained that the touch bezel on the Watch 5 isn't as sensitive.

A user shared: "There are a lot of featured apps on the watch, but they suck battery power if you enable them all."

Another said, "From the display to the processor, RAM, speakers, everything is basically the same as the Watch 4. It just has slightly more scratch-resistant glass, a shape that sits flatter on your wrist, and a bigger battery."
