If you’ve been checking out our Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro hands-on, you might be wondering which is the smartwatch for you. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro are both tempting devices with some great strengths.

Both watches offer a Super AMOLED always-on display with the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 having the choice of either a 1.2-inch display or a 1.4-inch option, while the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro sticks with just the 1.4-inch option. They both have a number of sensors including a heart rate sensor, blood oxygen sensor, and GPS. They look the same, too, although the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is more robust thanks to its titanium case.

They both also feature Samsung’s BioActive Sensor which means you can monitor a range of health factors such as sleep, blood oxygen level, blood pressure, and body fat levels. Doing so much more than just tracking your calories burned or steps taken, it’s a great way of getting deeper insight into your body composition.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro adds to that by including a GPX feature that means users can share their locations, trace back their steps, and also see turn-by-turn directions. The extra feature makes it a better choice for hikers and travelers, with that further enhanced by its superior battery life.

Ultimately, only you know if you need the extra features of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. Whatever you decide, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 range is a great way of tracking more of your health than the standard methods offered by devices we’ve seen elsewhere.
