They have very great battery life and have more accurate tracking . Battery saver could give you up to more than 20 days . I use one . Very great . I can travel for a week without taking my charger.

              I need a watch with no or just basic fitness features, I don't care about fancy ECG, Heart Rate etc I just need a watch that can be used for calls, notifications, texting, 3rd party apps, LTE and NFC for payments

                Anonymous, 03 Oct 2022What do you mean "no correlation with reality?" ... moreThank you very much for your learned and real life experience response.

                  I have the 5 Pro, battery life was terrible and I watched numerous YouTube videos to turn all the features off to try to get through a while day.
                  I was so disappointed, started to try to sell to buy a Huawei gt pro3 at a loss
                  Then I stumbled across an comment, i tried that and all is good 😁. 3 days easy with all features on.
                  Do not have Google assistant set on voice activation, only by holding the key it to launch.
                  As oon as you turn it off the the battery becomes great, it works really well now.
                  Good luck to you other owners 😁

                    Thank you

                      I have been using the 5 pro for the last week and I hate it. As a long time Galaxy user since S1 till today owning Note 20 ultra, Samsung is simply terrible in the battery development. I leave the watch full charged from mid night till 8 am with Bluetooth off, wifi off and battery saving on and the battery drains 10% without any use. Also the design of the normal watch 5 is better the pro as this design of the pro is obstructive with the raised lip.

                          We need more competition. Surely there is a Wear OS 3 manufacturer with a decent health sensor and Snapdragon W5 chipset that could probably go against the Samsung at considerably less money.

                              Have watch 4, and will never upgrade it unless it has 1 week battery life, should have listened to my friends suggestions of buying huawei or amazfit watch as pretty much the same.
                              Thought playstore would give different experience, but otherthan spotify, i dont use or download other apps

                                  I've wore the Watch 5 Pro LTE for the last month and have the following to add. I'm really enjoying the magnetic D Band as it looks great and is quick and easy to put on and take off. I actually prefer the raised titanium bezel vs the bulky rotating bezel on the Watch 4 Classic. Looks much higher end and the metal bezel acts as a groove for my finger if I want to use the digital rotating bezel. Battery life great and I'm getting 3 days and nights of constant wear.

                                    I think another Con should be added. i.e. the QI charging does not work on non Samsung phones or most standard QI charges. It doesn't work with older Samsung QI chargers either.

                                      Anonymous, 03 Oct 2022In future we will pay for food with watch and make calls.Already did that in the past with the first gen of Galaxy Watch ... Using MST! 😁
