Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Possible Release Date Rumors

One of the major Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 rumors is the possible release date. Everyone is speculating the release date of this new and hyped Galaxy Watch. There is no official word from Samsung on this matter, so we shall look at the previous release patterns:

     Galaxy watch 3 – August 2020

     Galaxy watch 4 – August 2021

Looking at this pattern, we can arrive at one answer only. There is a chance that Samsung will release the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 in August 2022.

This has been backed by Forbes in 2021 when it reported that “Samsung plans to release the new watch in Q3-Q4 of the next year.”

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pre-Order Rumors 

There is little to no information about the pre-order dates for Samsung Galaxy Watch 5. This has led to a lot of Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 rumors. Last year there was a gap of more than two weeks between the release of new Galaxy watch models and when they were available for pre-booking.

We assume this will be true for the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 too. So if we expect the Galaxy Watch 5 to be released in August 2022, we have to wait two weeks past that to book the smartwatch.

There is no official word from Samsung on what the smartwatch may cost. This has filled the market with Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 rumors. People are speculating the amount that can be charged for the new Samsung Galaxy Watch 5.

The pricing of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 can be similar to previous models. Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 starts at $249.99. The prices, however, increase if you want a larger size or LTE connectivity. Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic starts at $349.

We expect to see a similar pricing model for Samsung Galaxy Watch 5. 

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5  New Design Possibilities

Another Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 rumor that everyone is excited about is the new design possibility. There is no official word on this, but an early leak suggests that there can be changes in the smartwatch’s design.

There is a possibility that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 may have an extendable screen that can increase up to 40% in size with a pinch gesture. There are images of this design floating around the internet. However, we can’t be sure if a design that complicated could be developed before the release of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5. 

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Health Sensor Rumor

One of the most exciting Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 rumors is about introducing the skin temperature measurement feature. A lot of Samsung’s competitors already have this feature. Samsung has been delaying it to make it reliable.

If this feature is introduced in the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5, we will be able to measure our body temperature through a watch on our wrists. You can detect a fever, infection, and more in the early stages. Imagine how useful that can be, especially in the times of Covid!

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Rumors | Expected Features

While Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic are two of the best smartwatches, there is still room for a lot of improvement. There are a lot of features we wanted in these two watches. However, as Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 is on its way, we can expect to have those missing features now. 

Here is a list of features we want to see in the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5:

1. Compatibility With Other Phones

When we talk about compatibility, we consider both iOS and Android devices. The Samsung Galaxy Watch models stopped connecting to iOS devices after the Galaxy Watch 4 range release. The previous models were, however, compatible with iOS devices. 

The Samsung Galaxy Watches can be paired with Android devices but is fully compatible only with the Samsung phones. If you have connected your Galaxy Watch with other Android devices, you won’t be able to use some features like blood press measurement, etc.

We understand if there is a compatibility problem with iOS devices since most Apple users prefer Apple Watch. However, it is unjustified for the Galaxy Watch to be incompatible with Android devices since it runs on Wear OS (operating system of Google)

For Samsung Galaxy Watch 5, we want these issues to be resolved. We expect that Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 will be fully compatible, atleast with Android phones.

2. Better Workout Controls

While Samsung Galaxy Watches can monitor your workouts and health specifics, their workout controls are a little complicated. The major problem is with pausing a workout. The Galaxy Watch takes a little longer to pause a workout. This is not a major problem and can be solved very easily.

For Samsung Galaxy Watch 5, we want these issues to be resolved. Right now, Apple Watch is considered the best fitness tracker. We want to see if Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 beats the Apple Watch to become the best fitness device.

3. A Wider Strap Selection

Apple Watches give us a large selection of accessories, but Samsung does not. This is what bothers many Android users. Samsung Galaxy Watches do not offer a lot of accessories or bands to make a style statement. 

For Samsung Galaxy Watch 5, we want a wide variety of strap collections. We want to have choices. We want to be able to change our watch straps according to our outfits and occasion.

4. FDA Approval for Health Monitoring

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic already have the feature of monitoring blood pressure. However, it does not have FDA approval, due to which these features can’t be used by people. 

For Samsung Galaxy Watch 5, we want Samsung to take FDA approval for blood pressure monitoring so that people can finally use this feature.

5. Longer Battery Life

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic have one issue in common: their battery life. These two Galaxy watches last only for 24 hours after fully charging. However, their rivals like Apple Watch and Fitbit have longer battery life.

For Samsung Galaxy Watch 5, we want longer battery life. It is rumored that there will be a battery boost. Fingers crossed! However, we can only be sure, when we test it. 

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro Rumors

Another Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 rumor that is fascinating to everyone is the release of the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. There is no official word on this rumor, but it has been claimed by many that this one will have a huge 572 mAh battery. It is also rumored to have a 44mm screen that will make it the biggest smartwatch yet.
