Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 review: peak of Android smartwatches


In 2021, the Galaxy Watch 4 stood out as one of Wear OS's best smartwatches. In 2022, the Galaxy Watch 5 does the same thing.

Lightweight, comfortable design Robust health tracking AMOLED screen looks excellent Easy access to Google apps Very fast charging speeds

Skin temperature tracking not yet available Falls short of battery life claims

“The Galaxy Watch 5 is far from an exciting upgrade over the Watch 4. But if you're getting your first Wear OS smartwatch or upgrading from an older model, it's one of the best available in 2022.”

Galaxy Watch 5 review: Should you go Pro?


The Galaxy Watch 5 is here — the workhorse of Samsung's new wearable range.

Sleek, timeless design ; Comfortable to wear and sleep with ; Vivid and legible display ; Fast charging means less time away from your wrist ; Wear OS is a joy to use

Battery life is still just okay ; Incremental changes from the previous generation ; Ecosystem issues - some features are exclusive to Galaxy phones

Samsung Galaxy Watch5 Review – Great For the Right Devices


Looking for a new smartwatch for health and general day-to-day life? Check out our Samsung Galaxy Watch5 review and see if this is for you.

+ Fluoroelastomer band is versatile and perfect for daily use ; + Can easily change look / feel with different straps ; + Improved build quality with sapphire crystal glass display ; + Flatter bottom allows more consistent readings with the BioActive...

- Battery life is shorter than expected ; - Some features are only available exclusively to Samsung Galaxy devices ; - Unsurprisingly, not iPhone-friendly ; - Touch-sensitive bezel is unintuitive

The Samsung Galaxy Watch5 is a great smartwatch but it's true potential can only be unleashed with a Samsung Galaxy device.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 review


The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 has a new skin-temperature reader, more scratch-resistant display and a longer-lasting battery life. Here's our full review of why it's the best Samsung watch yet.

It's hard not to draw comparisons the Galaxy Watch and Apple Watch, as they've diverged as two different devices for two different product ecosystems. To me, it seems like the Galaxy Watch is following the Apple Watch's M.O. by making an annual minor...

Galaxy Watch 5 Review: Wear OS' best gets just a little bit better


The new Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 isn't a huge milestone, but rather a refined and much better version of the Galaxy Watch 4.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 review: The best Android smartwatch, for now


With the Galaxy Watch 4, there was a lot of hype surrounding the arrival of Wear OS 3. But with more competition on the horizon, it's definitely plausible to think that the Galaxy Watch 5 might not ho The Galaxy Watch 5 doesn't do much to raise the bar.

Redesigned health sensor makes for a better fit ; Improved sleep tracking, complete with insights ; Charging speeds are vastly improved ; Wear OS 3 really shines, complete with onboard Google Assistant ; Sapphire Glass seems to hold up, so far

Battery life doesn't come as advertised ; Key features are limited to Samsung Galaxy phones ; Essentially the same as the Galaxy Watch 4 with a new name ; Touch bezel is practically useless

Samsung decided to play it safe with the Galaxy Watch 5 this year, bringing more changes to the Watch 5 Pro instead. But even with claims of longer battery life and improved health tracking, the best Android smartwatch doesn't do much to raise the bar....

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5


Samsung is back with its second Wear OS 3-powered smartwatch in the Galaxy Watch 5 – but is there enough here to warrant an upgrade?

The best example of Wear OS 3 ; New and improved sleep tracking ; Solid battery life for a Wear OS device ; Accurate HRM results

Barely any different to the Galaxy Watch 4 ; Temperature sensor is an afterthought ; The workout selection needs improving

The Galaxy Watch 5 is an incredible wearable when weighed up against its competitors. However, as a successor to the Galaxy Watch 4, it’s a huge letdown. The upgrades are few and far between, and there certainly isn’t enough on offer here to warrant...
