What do we already know about the upcoming smart watch?

Since the introduction of the new generation of smart watches Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 We are still a few months apart, but we already have some information about them today. Portal AndroidPolice summed up everything we already know about them.

Galaxy Watch 5 may get a temperature sensor

The first information about the Galaxy Watch 5 started circulating at the end of winter. In March, we learned that the watch will allow the user’s temperature to be sensed following the Fitbit Sense pattern. This feature could also help monitor sleep and the menstrual cycle. However, researcher Ming-chi Kuo recently questioned this information.

Kuo claims that due to software issues, similar technology has not been integrated into the seventh generation of rival Apple Watch, and Samsung is reportedly facing similar hurdles. The problem seems to be in creating algorithms to accurately convert the skin temperature to the user’s temperature. However, it is still possible that Samsung will find a solution and the Galaxy Watch 5 will include this sensor.

Larger batteries extend life by a few hours

Probably the biggest improvement in the next generation of Galaxy Watch in terms of hardware should be a larger battery. According to several leaks in April, the 40-millimeter Galaxy Watch 5 will come with a 276 mAh battery, which is about 12% more than a 247 mAh cell in a similar size to the Galaxy Watch 4.

The 44-millimeter model should also see a similar increase in battery capacity. About 10%, from 361 mAh in Galaxy Watch4 to 397 mAh in Galaxy Watch 5. Samsung advertised 48-hour battery life for Galaxy Watch 4, which was not always achieved, especially with a smaller size. However, increasing the battery could add a few extra hours to the next generation.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 comes in three versions

Galaxy Watch 5 is also apparently being developed under the codename Heart. According to leaks, there is a version of Heart-S (model SM-R90x), Heart-L (model SM-R91x) and a third version of Heart-Pro (SM-R92x). This third model is said to be released as the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, although this name has not yet been officially confirmed, so it could also be sold as the Galaxy Watch 5 Ultra.

The only known detail we have about this alleged higher-end model is that it will have a huge battery with a capacity of 572 mAh. This is almost 60% more than the largest capacity of the last generation of watches. A larger battery is likely to affect the larger body size of the watch.

However, there is also bad news, because the same leak suggests that Samsung will not release the Galaxy Watch 5 Classic this year. Brand fans can probably forget about the rotating hardware ring that could be navigated in the watch system. However, there is still little chance that omitting the “Classic” designation will not mean the loss of the ring.
