The new Galaxy Watch5 series brings insightful sleep tracking, personalised design options, and enhanced durability to help shape everyday health and wellness habits

LONDON, UK – August 10, 2022 – 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.


“As a result of new habits, routines and interests formed over the last few years, we’ve seen a growing desire in people to better understand their physical and mental wellbeing,” said Conor Pierce, Corporate Vice President, Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland. “The Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro devices are not only our most durable and feature-packed watches yet; they are designed to take our customers’ wellness journeys to new heights”.


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 rates, blood oxygen levels[1], and even stress levels[2]. In addition, users can get a deeper understanding of their heart health by monitoring blood pressure and ECG[3], anytime, from anywhere.


With an increased surface area and more direct contact with your wrist, Galaxy Watch5 tracks health metrics now with even greater accuracy. Plus, its powerful 3-in-1 BioActive Sensor works in combination with the other sensors of Galaxy Watch5 series to provide users with an in-depth understanding of their wellness. The temperature sensor uses infrared technology for more accurate readings, even if the temperature of your surroundings changes. This opens new possibilities for developers to expand their health and wellness options and for users to take advantage of all-new experiences.


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[4] 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.



Understand sleep patterns through Sleep Scores that monitor stages of sleep, along with snore detection[5] and blood oxygen levels[6]. Achieve improved sleep habits with Sleep Coaching that gives a tailored month-long guided programme[7].



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[8], so your watch remains reliable in day-to-day use. Cue up your favorite song on Spotify with just your voice using Google Assistant. Music and audio lovers will appreciate updates that include new apps like SoundCloud and Deezer[9]. 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.


Galaxy Watch5 Pro, More Features and Greater Durability for the Outdoor Enthusiast 



Created for those that love the great outdoors, the Galaxy Watch5 Pro is the newest addition to the Galaxy Watch portfolio. From hiking to cycling and beyond, Watch5 Pro is ready for the challenge thanks to its premium materials. It features enhanced Sapphire Crystal that’s even harder and a titanium casing that’s five times more durable[10] and protects the display with a protruded bezel design. Galaxy Watch5 Pro also comes with an all-new D-Buckle Sport Band that offers rugged durability with a sleek and clean fit.



Built strong, and built to last, Galaxy Watch5 Pro has the largest battery in a Galaxy Watch. It’s 60% larger than Galaxy Watch4, which is key to lasting longer while conquering a new route. Take advantage of GPX, that’s available for the first time on a Galaxy Watch. Head out on a hike and record and share it with fellow trail-lovers on the Samsung Health app with Route Workout. You can also download hiking and cycling routes as you practice for your next race or look to mix up your routine. As you hike or cycle, keep your eyes on the path and away from the map with intuitive Turn-by-turn directions[11]. When you’re ready to head home, Galaxy Watch5 Pro will get you there easily with the Track back feature that takes you back the way you came[12].
