The Samsung Galaxy Watch5 and Watch5 Pro is now available for pre-order in the UAE.

With the new lineup, Samsung aims to act on individual health goals. The watch allows for in-depth monitoring and provides practical data to help users along their health and wellness journey.

The new watches boast advanced features and powerful capabilities, as well as a sleek personalised design.

“Packed with holistic innovations, the new Galaxy Watch5 series is designed to enhance everyday health and wellness. Created for those that love the great outdoors, the Galaxy Watch5 Pro is the newest addition to the Galaxy Watch portfolio. From hiking to cycling and beyond, Galaxy Watch5 Pro is ready for the challenge thanks to its premium materials,” said Seong Hyun Lee, President, Samsung Gulf Electronics. “The Galaxy Watch5 enhances the features that consumers rely on every day, while the Galaxy Watch5 Pro is Samsung’s most durable and feature-packed watch yet. These new devices are a commitment to users that their goals and milestones can be met.”

Samsung’s BioActive Sensor, a technology that was introduced on the Galaxy Watch4 series, will also be available in the new lineup. It uses a single unique chip that combines three health sensors – Optical Heart Rate, Electrical Heart Signal and Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis. Users can monitor heart rate heart rate, blood oxygen level, and even stress levels.

Commands can also be made with Bixby Voice. It automatically sets connected lights, AC units, and TVs with the Galaxy Watch5. Updates that include new apps such as SoundCloud and Deezer. Additionally, One UI Watch4.5 offers a fuller typing experience, an easier way to make calls, and a host of new accessibility features that make the Galaxy Watch more intuitive.

The Galaxy Watch5 Pro has the largest battery in a Galaxy Watch; 60 per cent larger than Galaxy Watch4. This edition marks the introduction of GPX in Galaxy Watches.

The Samsung Health app now has a feature called Route Workout. This allows users to record and share hiking or cycling journeys with fellow fitness enthusiasts. It has 'turn-by-turn' directions which allow users to keep their eyes on the trail, and a track back feature for when it is time to return.

Users may now head out on a hike, record and share their journey with fellow trail-lovers on the Samsung Health app with Route Workout. As they hike or cycle, they can finally keep their eyes on the path and away from the map with intuitive Turn-by-turn directions
