22 June 2022
The rumored price hikes are substantial, let's see if the theoretical improvements in battery life will compensate somewhat.

          If they will keep the feminine style for the Pro, than am not buying.

            It seems that Watch 3 will be my last Samsung watch. In fact I was thinking of moving away from Samsung phones. There are much better choices out there.

                Downgraded ram, glass, size, and battery in models yet still ups the price? Are there even any upgrades to make up for that????

                  500 EUR and after 3 month, sold for 300 at best. I'll pass Samsung ...

                      So basically it's more expensive than a lot of upper midrange phones on the market and i can't handle that

I am expecting gw5 to be more competitive with such improvements.

                          If the Watch5 isn't completely bezelless they won't sell any volume. They loose their loyal customers who want a physical rotating bezel and in return people only get big black borders without function. The virtual bezel sucks hard to be honest and the price is increased.
                          So who is supposed to buy this?

                            lapax, 23 Jun 2022The Watch 7 has one of the worst battery life amongst smart... moreMaybe so, but Apple Watches have one of best displays in terms of utilizing active and AOD displays that look exactly the same, just slightly dimmed. The performance has also been the smoothest for years and apps integrate between phone and watch the best I've seen. The amount of sensors they use for features surely has to eat quite some battery.

                            And Samsung started doing another annoying thing that is also annoying with Apple. To make good use of Galaxy Watch 4 or newer, you also need Samsung smartphone. Integration is probably better, but this greatly limits combinations of devices.

Having said that, the Samsung Watch 4 batteries are also nothing to boast about. They both need to do something drastic about it.

                                  Based on my experience with the Galaxy Watch 4 LTE , the LTE version is not worth having in the UK as it is not possible to get a contract to connect this watch via LTE so don't spend your money on an option you won't be able to use.

                                    galaxy watch5 is supposed to be a direct competitor to apple watch7.it definitely needs better battery life,thinner bezels and much more accurate HR and GPS sensors.

                                        Who remembers Galaxy S5 selling around for 599$? and today's flagship does not go below 1000$....

                                        Yea you can argue that inflation, more cameras...etc

                                        But manufacturing process and everything has gotten cheaper by the years also, so are they ripping us completely? Same with petrol prices, they just want to make phones, cars and stuff like that a luxury for the rich or the ones who can really afford.
