Several new Galaxy Watches and a new set of Galaxy Buds are on the way, with significant improvements across the board.
First, the Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro have been redesigned to fit your wrist and provide more accurate bioactivity readings. Reworked surfaces and curvature provide a more comfortable fit, and the face uses Samsung’s first sapphire crystal display. The company also claims over 60% scratch resistance.
The (Galaxy watches series) Galaxy Watch5 and Watch5 Pro has upgraded sensors for better health monitoring, and skin temperature is on an updated biometric list, including improved sleep tracking.
Both devices can quickly charge up to 45% in 30 minutes and come with 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
What sets the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro apart from the rest? According to Samsung, it will have a more durable titanium chassis than the Watch5’s aluminum frame, as well as a sturdier 45mm screen. It also supports up to 80 hours on a single charge (20 hours with GPS enabled).
Samsung also introduced the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro, which has an improved ergonomic design and is about 15 percent smaller than the previous model. When you place the buds in your ears, Samsung promises less pressure, more airflow, and zero rotation.
The speaker features 24-bit HiFi for better sound, and the microphone has a higher signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for clearer communication. The new Buds 2 Pro also supports Dolby Atmos and lasts up to 8 hours with active noise cancellation (ANC) turned off (up to 30 hours with the charging case). You can also talk for up to 4 hours with ANC off and up to 15 hours with the case on.
The Galaxy Buds 2 Pro, Galaxy Watch 5, and Watch 5 Pro will be available on August 26th starting at $229. The Watch5 starts at $279 with Bluetooth and $329 with LTE, and the Watch5 Pro starts at $449 with Bluetooth and $499 with LTE.
