During its Unpacked event, Samsung introduced the new Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro. These new smartwatches will sure be tough competition for the upcoming Apple Watch Series 8. But, in addition to that, they also show what innovations Apple will likely bring with Series 8 and the rumored Apple Watch Pro.
The new Galaxy Watch5 doesn’t bring much innovation compared to its predecessor – which sounds about the same as what we expect when the Apple Watch Series 8 is compared to the Apple Watch Series 7 and Series 6. That said, Samsung was still able to bring a temperature sensor, which will also be a function users are waiting for Apple to introduce a few weeks from now. In addition, there’s a more resistant Sapphire display and bigger battery life – both good additions.
