Both the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic were some of the best smartwatches of 2021, but one thing holding both devices from truly achieving greatness was its battery life. This is something that Samsung plans to address with the upcoming Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro.
Now thanks to a report from WinFuture.de, the battery sizes of both models have been revealed. According to the report, the Watch 5 will feature batteries of 284mAh and 410mAh for the 40mm and 44mm respectively, and while the battery sizes are different, apparently they will both be able to achieve up to 50 hours.
This means that both devices will last around 2 days, if not slightly longer. This is an improvement over its predecessor, even though it’s not by much. As for the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, it will only come in one size and it will pack a 590mAh battery which is apparently good for up to 80 hours. This is in line with an earlier report that suggested that the Pro model could have a 3-day battery life.
Samsung has also recently published a post on its website where they talk about their upcoming wearables. What’s interesting is that Samsung hints that its new wearables will come with features aimed at users who have a “passion for the outdoors”.
“In the last few years, many people around the world have adopted new habits and interests. For many, these include a greater awareness of physical, mental and sleep health. To meet this demand, Samsung is excited to continue expanding our Galaxy Watch lineup to better cater to the many unique needs of our users — especially those with a passion for the outdoors.”
It sounds like the company might be trying to compete with Garmin, who are known for making smartwatches ideal for outdoor activities, in that particular smartwatch segment. In any case, more details should be revealed next week on the 10th of August, so check back with us then for more updates.
