Supercharged with impressive tech, the Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro are the latest Galaxy smartwatches to join the highly acclaimed Wear OS family. Bursting with features these watches are designed with you and your lifestyle in mind. In this article, we explore how they differ to help you decide which one is the right choice for you.


The key differences between both models in the latest Galaxy Watch5 Series are the design and battery capacity. With a sleeker, lighter design, the Galaxy Watch5 is more minimalistic than the Galaxy Watch5 Pro which has a more timeless look and feel like classic luxury watches. Thanks to its titanium casing, the Galaxy Watch5 Pro is slightly tougher than the Galaxy Watch5, which makes it more suited to outdoor adventures. The Galaxy Watch5 Pro also has a larger battery than the Galaxy Watch5, lasting an impressive 80 hours[1].



Galaxy Watch5 vs Galaxy Watch5 Pro: Design


With its refined design, the Samsung Galaxy Watch5 Pro brings sophistication to your wrist with upgraded titanium casing, making it both stronger and lighter. Plus, it has a new and improved magnetic D-buckle band as well as a choice of two sophisticated colourways; Black Titanium or Grey Titanium.


While the lighter Galaxy Watch5 is crafted from aluminium and comes with a range of new colours[2]: Silver, Graphite, Pink Gold, and Sapphire. There are also a wide selection of bands and watch faces to customise your smartwatch look.



Galaxy Watch5 vs Galaxy Watch5 Pro: Battery


There’s nothing more frustrating than running out of power, right when you need it. With the turbo-charged battery life in both the Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro you can rest safe in the knowledge that your smartwatch will keep up with all your demands. In fact, the Samsung Watch5 Pro has a massive 572mAh (typical) battery which will last for an impressive 80 hours – that’s equivalent to 3 days! This is a big boost when compared with the 361mAh (typical) battery of its predecessor, the Galaxy Watch4 Classic.


The Galaxy Watch5 also has a long-lasting battery, varying between 276-391mAh (typical) battery[1] depending on the watch model you choose – plenty to keep you powered up day and night. This is a significant improvement from the Galaxy Watch4 which has a 247mAh (typical) battery capacity[3].


You can now spend less time charging too, with improved charging capabilities. Both the Samsung Watch5 and Watch5 Pro can charge twice as fast as the Samsung Watch4 and Watch4 Classic. Benefiting from an upgraded 10W charging, you’ll be back up and running in no time. What’s more with Fast Charge, both watches recharge from 0-45% in just 30 minutes. Perfect if you need a quick top up when you’re out and about.



Galaxy Watch5 vs Galaxy Watch5 Pro: Durability


When you are putting your watch through its paces you want one that will stand up to everything you throw at it. Both the Samsung Watch5 and Watch5 Pro benefit from an upgraded Sapphire Crystal Glass watch face, which makes them tougher than ever. This highly engineered glass-like material is carefully curated to ensure it is highly resistant to scratches and damage. It is exceptionally strong, durable and chip-resistant.


The Galaxy Watch5 Pro also has a new and improved titanium casing which is thin but tough. As titanium is stronger, the casing makes the Galaxy Watch5 Pro slightly more durable than the Galaxy Watch5’s aluminium case.



The Key Fitness Features Packed in the Galaxy Watch5 Series


Your wellbeing is important. With the Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro it’s never been easier to keep track of your general wellness and take steps to improve it. The innovative Bioactive sensors in both smartwatches are specially designed to measure body composition[4] and heart rate in real time so you can create healthy habits that last. They also both have intuitive sleep tracking to help you on your journey to greater holistic health. Plus, with daily fitness goals and breathing exercises you’ll be bossing your wellbeing goals in no time.
