Galaxy Watch5: Samsung app confirms Pro model & disappearance of Classic version

Last summer, Samsung introduced new smartwatches with the Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch4 Classic. After a good year, we can state that this is the first time that this is a serious smartwatch for Android smartphones. Samsung relies on Wear OS 3.0 for the Watch4 (in the article image), which was developed in close cooperation with Google.

The Galaxy Watch4 is also available in a Classic version. It is a bit “chunkier” and also offers a rotating bezel. Rumors were already circulating in late spring that the Galaxy Watch5 would deviate somewhat from this concept and that there would be no classic version in the portfolio. Instead, there should be a second model called Galaxy Watch5 Pro.

Samsung and their beta update of the Samsung Health app (version 6.22.0.069) have now revealed the secret and confirm the rumours. The next generation of smartwatches are the Galaxy Watch5 and the Galaxy Watch5 Pro. The Classic model should actually disappear.

According to information from various leakers, the rotating bezel of the former Classic version is not available on the Pro model. Instead, the choice of materials should be in the premium segment. Sapphire glass is used for the display and titanium for the case.

A round design with an OLED display is again expected for the upcoming Samsung smartwatches. All kinds of sensors, as in the Watch4, should of course not be missing. It is not known whether a new SoC will be chosen. Purely in terms of sensor technology, the Watch4 offers almost every imaginable wish on the market. For example, the Apple Watch – in connection with Samsung devices – has the ability to measure blood pressure ahead of it.

Samsung relies on its own UI cover for Wear OS 3: One UI Watch. It has probably been further improved and equipped with new functions. The new version of One UI Watch is set to debut on the Galaxy Watch5.

As of now, Wear OS 3.0 is not very common. Various manufacturers, including the Fossil Group, have promised corresponding updates. What the system looks like without the One UI cover has already been shown. As is well known, the Pixel Watch should appear in autumn.
