The Galaxy Watch 5 received a 4-star review from Trusted Reviews during the summer. We praised it for being the best example of Wear OS 3, the new and improved sleep tracking, the good battery life and the accurate heart rate monitor.

It’s not the biggest upgrade over 2021’s Galaxy Watch 4, but if you’re on the lookout for a new Wear OS watch to replace an ancient one, there are arguably no better options. Our reviewers prefer it to Google’s long-awaited, but ultimately disappointing Pixel Watch, for example.

“You won’t find a better wearable for the Android crowd than the Galaxy Watch 5,” our reviewer concluded in August and we’ve seen nothing to change that view in the last few months.

You’ll get 48 hours of wear from a single charge and can go from 0-50% in around 30 minutes on charge. It’s got GPS, and has a range of excellent workout tracking modes and some enhanced sleep tracking. You’ll also benefit from the Wear OS interface.
