Android’s answer to Apple Watch SE

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 runs on Wear OS 3 and offers multiple fitness and health tracking features. The all-new Galaxy Watch 5 also comes with a temperature sensor that claims to measure skin temperature and alert the user to signs of a fever. However, the feature is not very useful and is mainly a gimmick. Samsung also said at the launch that the sensor will improve the overall performance of the smartwatch and that the company is working with the developers to find more particle uses of the technology. So at this point the temperature sensor is not as useful as expected.

As mentioned above, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 comes standard with OS 3. The wearable OS 3 runs smoothly on the wearable and also comes with new editions. For example, the Google Assistant is now available on the smartwatch and it works smoothly. Samsung has also improved its sleep tracking software and now uses colorful animals to represent different sleep patterns. You’ll also be given a designated sleeping animal and the Health app will then set you up for a four-week course. The course teaches you the importance of a good night’s sleep and also how you can improve your sleeping pattern. With all these features on board, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 offers a smooth user experience.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 works with the Samsung Health app which is not new to Galaxy smartwatch users. The app offers a neat, clean and simple user interface. It has a daily activity tracker that tracks your steps, activity time and calories burned. Like its predecessor, the Galaxy Watch 5 also comes with a range of sensors, including heart rate, blood pressure, EKG, body composition, stress tracking, SpO2 and snore detection. The wearable is designed to automatically track multiple workouts and provide a fairly accurate measurement.

The smartwatch also provided the correct data when measuring heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen content. The company has also included its famous BioActive sensor in the smartwatch. The sensor monitors your overall health by measuring your weight, skeletal muscle and BMI. Same as its predecessor, the feature works very well this time too.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 comes with GPS tracking functionality. But we’re not really impressed with it, because it needs to learn more from people like Garmin in this department.

Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 delivers a smooth performance that will be appreciated by many.
