The size of this Watch 5 Pro is big as well as taller and heavier than the Apple Watch. Coming in at 45mm, made entirely of titanium and sapphire glass.
The durable Galaxy Watch 5 Pro features a raised bezel to protect the screen from accidents and sharp objects. The old version of the clock has a rotating bezel but in the new version, they removed this part.
Software & Features
The new Bioactive sensor in the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro provides users with accurate health data and connects to a large number of health sensors. Plus, the watch provides tips on how to reach your goals and encourages you to rehydrate after exerting yourself during cardio.
The Galaxy Watch 5 will have an infrared skin temperature sensor at the bottom of the lineup, but that’s just a teaser for now. You can measure your skin temperature and get alerts for temperature rises, as well as track a woman’s menstrual cycle.
Sleep tracking has also been greatly improved by Samsung. The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will tell you if you are experiencing sleep problems such as obstructive sleep apnea, so you can take appropriate action. In addition to the Watch 5 Pro’s enhanced Activity features, it also boasts GPS-based route navigation using gentle haptic feedback and voice messages.
Battery and Charging
The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is one of the longest-lasting watches, featuring a 590mAh battery. This wearable has a battery life that matches that of older Samsung devices running Tizen, such as the Gear S3 Frontier, which regularly lasted more than two, three, or even four days.
This watch charges up more than 50% after 40 minutes of charging, while a complete charge takes about an hour due to the 10W WPC-based charging.
Processor, RAM, Storage, and Connectivity
Compared to the regular Galaxy Watch 5 or the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro doesn’t have any new hardware. You should be able to use all your custom watch faces, GPS methods, apps, photos, and music files with it, thanks to the old dual-core Exynos W920 chipset, 1.5GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory.
There aren't any major performance issues, but the smartwatch sometimes lags when trying to access a particular app or function, especially if you're frantically switching between multiple apps. It is not perfect.
Audio Quality and Haptic Feedback
In terms of the quality of the smartwatch, this watch is suitable for receiving and making calls.

It comes with a new bezel that protects your watch screen from accidents and sharp objects. The body of the watch is made of titanium so you can use it in any situation without any problem. If your budget allows you to buy this watch, you can buy it without doing any research.
