Samsung Galaxy Watch 5
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 price in Kenya is KES 29,500 shillings. It has many of the same specs as the Galaxy Watch 4, including the Exynos W920 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, contactless payments, GPS, optional LTE, contactless payments, and 5ATM of water resistance. You get the same health features via the slightly improved 3-in-1 BioActive sensor — heart rate tracking, ECGs, and body composition analysis. Hardware-wise, the only new thing you’re getting is an infrared temperature sensor. That, by the way, doesn’t do much of anything yet. It will allegedly improve sleep tracking accuracy, but as Samsung said during Unpacked, it added the sensor so developers can tinker around with creating future health features. As far as software goes, it also runs Wear OS Powered by Samsung (aka Wear OS 3 running a Samsung skin). The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, which ships alongside the Watch 5 on August 26th, is where you’ll see new design choices and snazzy features like turn-by-turn navigation, but the Watch 5 is a very vanilla update.
Galaxy Watch 5 vs. Galaxy Watch 5 Pro
There are key differences between the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 vs. Galaxy Watch 5 Pro that could make one of the versions of this year’s watch offerings better for you than the other. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is an all-new model looking to cut into Garmin’s market with 80-hour battery life, ultra-durable design, and outdoor sports-specific features. These perks come at a price — as I mentioned above, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro starts at $449. I still haven’t conducted a full review of the Watch 5 Pro, but I did speculate on who the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is for, based on what I’ve seen so far.
