Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro are the most comprehensive and advanced smartwatches Samsung has ever produced. The combination of the Korean company’s build quality and the capabilities of Wear OS 3.5 – with One UI Watch 4.5 customization – promises one of the absolute best user experiences for the wearable world.

Compared to the Galaxy Watch4, the battery has been increased by 13% and the charging speed is 30% higher. On Galaxy Watch5 it only takes eight minutes of charging to perform an eight-hour sleep tracking. In addition, the new sapphire crystal display offers greater external resistance (+60%) for bumps and falls.

The unique Samsung BioActive sensor, already on the Galaxy Watch4, can handle three of the internal sensors — Heart Rate (Optical), Electrical Heart Signal, and Bioelectric Impedance Analysis — to track all health and fitness functions. You can, for example, detect your heart rate, blood oxygen levels, stress levels, but also check your blood pressure and an electrocardiogram directly to your wrist.

There are also many new features for post-workoutrest and recovery, such as the body composition measurement tool and personalized advice on the amount of water to be taken based on fluids lost by sweating. Plus, you can keep tabs on your sleep quality through the Sleep Scores feature, which tells you how well you can sleep each night.

With this version of the operating system it will be possible to use Google Maps navigation directly on your wrist, without the need to connect your smartphone. Finally, many new native apps for WearOS are now supported, such as SoundCloud and Deezer.

Differences: Galaxy Watch 5 and 5 Pro

Samsung Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro are very similar devices when it comes to internal hardware, but they have so many small differences in aesthetics, materials, size, and additional functionality.

First, the basic Galaxy Watch5 comes in two variants, the 40mm case and the other 44mm case, while the Galaxy Watch5 Pro has only one 45mm size. As you can see from the list of technical features at the top, the size and weight are also different, with the Pro model being larger than the others.

The display is a 1.2″ 396×396 pixel panel for the 40mm Galaxy Watch5, but it is the same on both the 44mm Galaxy Watch5 and the Galaxy Watch5 Pro: in this case we are talking about a 1.4″ panel at 450×450 pixel resolution.

The only hardware difference is the built-in battery, different on each model: 284 mAh for 40mm Galaxy Watch5, 410mAh for 44mm Galaxy Watch5, and 590mAh for Galaxy Watch5 Pro.

The Galaxy Watch5 Pro is the most rugged in the batch, because it’s built using a reinforced sapphire crystal for the display and a titanium case. Plus, use a next-generation D-Buckle Sport Band. Only on the Pro you can use the GPX service, especially useful for excursions in nature: it supports route tracking, Turn-by-turn navigation so you don’t get lost and the Track back feature to get home safely.

Galaxy Watch 7 Could Powered By Exynos W1000 chip

Published

on


Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy Watch 7 is in an actively developing phase and is expected to introduce a new naming system for Galaxy smartwatch processors. 

Initially, Samsung switched to WearOS with the Galaxy Watch 4, powered by the Exynos W920 chip. Since then, the giant has also changed the naming scheme for their smartwatch processors. The same chipset, ‘Exynos W920, carried over to the next Galaxy Watch 5 lineup. 

The current Galaxy Watch 6 is powered by an upgraded chipset named the Exynos W930, and it is expected that this will carry over to the next-generation Galaxy Watch 7 series as well. Recent reports suggest that an Exynos chip, likely to be named W1000, will power the Galaxy Watch 7. Although this naming scheme could be suitable, the key point is that it would better convince consumers that the new chip is a major upgrade as compared to the previous chip. 

Although the model number for this new iteration is yet to come into existence, and usually the simple word is just not a part of the Korean giant, it will be interesting to see what turn this report will take in the future.. 

On the other hand, previous leaks already revealed the forthcoming Galaxy Watch 7 could offer three variants, including standard, classic, and pro, with hints at monster battery life and more. It is also supposed to be launched at the Galaxy Unpacked event in early July 2024.

Île-de-France Mobilités & Samsung Expand Transport Tickets On Galaxy Watches

Published

Île-de-France Mobilités is in the phase of modernizing transport tickets and is stepping up its efforts to dematerialize them. 

This includes new ticket options, pricing, effortless ways to buy tickets online or directly by phone, and updating station equipment to make using these new options smoother. Île-de-France Mobilités dematerialized ticketing solutions are used more and more every month and are now the majority in use. 

The aim behind this is just the dematerialization of ticketing and the generalization of this use, which has less environmental impact as compared to magnetic tickets. 

Regarding this president of Île-de-France Mobilités and the Île-de-France Region, Valérie Pécresse stated, “The generalization of this service, in partnership with Samsung, is in line with our dematerialization policy initiated in 2016: making the lives of Ile-de-France users simpler, more practical, and more in tune with our times. We will continue to invest and increase our efforts in this direction.” 

Back in November 2023, a few testers were able, during a developing phase, to use their Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 lineup as well as newer models to validate their transport tickets. The feedback was positive, highlighting simplicity, fluidity, and the speed of using the service. 

Although, since 2019, the Korean giant has been a partner of Île-de-France Mobilités to provide solutions for dematerializing transport tickets to all Ile-de-France residents on their smartphones. Now users can use their Galaxy smartphone for public transport in Île-de-France; this includes validating tickets on a terminal and buying or even reloading them with Samsung Pay. 

The two players are going further with this new deployment, which will permit you to buy tickets from a smartphone and validate them just with a flick of the wrist with a connected watch, even in the scenario where it is turned off. This step appears as a move forward to the modernization of Ile-de-France ticketing in a simple way, especially for scenarios when you get late.
