Considered to be one of the best smartwatches for Android, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 40mm GPS variety is the one most will go for. It offers a lightweight and comfortable design while still packing a punch where it counts. Features include fast charging so you’re always ready to go along with improved sensor accuracy for tracking how your body is performing. The highlight of all the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 range is its body composition analysis which reports back on body fat readings, BMI, and many other factors of your health. It also tracks all your workouts so you can soon see how things improve for you over time.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 44mm GPS has everything the 40mm model provides but it also sports a larger screen. That’s particularly useful if you have a larger wrist so it’s still just as prominent but it’s also useful if you want to be able to see things more clearly while you’re running, working out or simply for the sake of your eyes. Like with the 40mm model, we appreciate that there’s also advanced sleep coaching so you can learn to manage your overall sleep quality with some key tips and advice after you rest.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 40mm LTE — $270, was $330

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 40mm LTE is a great option if you don’t want to be dependent on your phone all the time for GPS tracking. The LTE component means once you equip it with an eSIM, you get cellular connectivity without the need for your phone. You can use it to make and receive calls, as well as reply to messages even if you’re nowhere near your phone. You also get all the benefits of the standard Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 with extensive workout tracking, health monitoring, and a Sapphire Crystal Glass that’s far stronger than previous models.

As before, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 44mm LTE is the chunkier version of the 40mm LTE model. That means a larger Sapphire Crystal Glass screen so you can see it more clearly while you’re hiking, running, or doing anything else imaginable. Not everyone will need the more sizeable display but if you have larger wrists or simply prefer to see things more clearly, this is the right model for you. Providing you need LTE functionality, of course!

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro 45mm GPS — $420, was $450

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is the ideal smartwatch if you want a truly luxurious experience while gaining all the benefits of a Samsung Galaxy Watch 5. On top of the standard features, it’s better designed for outdoorsy people with a thicker Sapphire Crystal Glass, 50 meters’ water resistance and a raised bezel that protects the screen even if you’re roughing it. It’s also made from titanium to keep it extra classy and tough plus it’s slightly bigger at 45mm. It also has a route workout and track back feature with the former allowing you to follow pre-determined routes while you travel and the latter helping you retrace your steps when you go exploring.

As with the standard Samsung Galaxy Watch 5, the Pro model is also available as a LTE model so you can use eSIM functionality instead of needing your smartphone near you at all times. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro offers up to 80 hours of battery life (more likely to be around three days in real-life use) so if you simply want to go off the beaten path without your phone, but still with some technology to help, this could be the solution for you. Turn-by-turn navigation really helps here and makes exploring interesting yet still safe.

Get 3 months of Boost Mobile with 5GB of 5G data for $15

Contracts are an ugly sort of thing. They invoke images of lawyers, courtroom, and rigid rules. Of legalese designed to getcha. Unfortunately, they are also closely tied to our cell phone bills. Luckily, companies know the contract life isn't for everyone and are offering prepaid phone plans as an alternative to those that want one. Boost Mobile, one of the best MVNOs (short for 'Mobile Virtual Network Operators'), is one such company and is now offering a great deal on phone service and 5G data. Their 3 Months 5GB Plan SIM Card Kit, which is only available to new customers, is currently just $15. That's $30 down from the usual $45 and a great way to save.

Why you should buy the Boost Mobile 5GB Plan SIM Card Kit
When you see a price this low, the first questions should be about the data. The Boost Mobile 5GB plan provides unlimited phone conversations and text and 5GB of 5G (or 4G) data and allows for mobile hotspots. Since the phone is prepaid, there are no overage charges, making this a great phone plan for teens. Teach them responsibility for their own data usage. No longer fear that their downloading of the best mobile games will incur big penalties on your credit card.

One of the better smartwatch deals right now is on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic 46mm LTE at Woot. Normally priced at a hefty $430, it's down to $180 for a limited time only aka until it sells out. Besides saving you $250, it's the coveted LTE version that means you don't need to keep your phone near you at all times to reap all its benefits. It's also the model with a larger bezel thanks to it being 46mm instead of 4mm. Sure to be popular, let's take a quick look at what it offers and how it compares to the newer Samsung Galaxy Watch 5.

Why you should buy the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is the best smartwatch for Android users on a budget. While the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 may have overtaken it in terms of being the newest Samsung Galaxy Watch, there's less of a difference between the two than you'd think. Both look very similar although the 5 has a more scratch-resistant sapphire crystal display. However, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic is the model that offers a physical rotating bezel -- something that many people have seriously missed in the newer version as it's very convenient.
