Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Specifications
One of the standout features that sets the Galaxy Watch 5 apart from the other model is its rollable display, which means a screen that can be rolled out to make it bigger.
Apart from looking like a natural inclusion to the other extendable-display devices from Samsung, there are patents to stick for it, and it is also expected to come up with a camera in the center. It was not ready for the 2022 watch, also we would not be able to confirm unless we get some upright leaks. As of now, this is yet to be confirmed and we will update this as some information is available.
The other features include enhanced physical design, new straps, and a longer-lasting battery. Another feature is wider compatibility: opening up the phone for complete use with non-Samsung devices as well and this would definitely be praised by specifically iPhone users apart from the other Android users as well.
The new smartwatch has a route workout, however, all the earlier versions also have features to track sleep cycle.
The watch controls’ BioActive sensor has three health sensors that include:
- Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis sensor that measures body fat percentage and skeletal muscle weight,
- Electrical Heart sensor for real-time ECG tracking to check unusual rhythm, and
- Optical Heart Rate sensor that keeps a check on cardiovascular health and tracks irregular heart rates.

Furthermore, a rollable display we already mentioned above. But this is not ready as of now for the Galaxy Watch. Though if it ever happens, the screen would be able to extend up to 40%.
