Features of the Galaxy Watch 5
Samsung has released only the Galaxy Watch 5 smartwatch models. This line includes the standard Galaxy Watch 5, as well as the more advanced Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. Both smartwatches have a high-end-looking round dial.
The standard Watch 5's aluminum case is shown here, in two sizes: 44 and 40 millimeters. The screen size here is a more manageable 1.2 inches, and its a Super AMOLED Sapphire Crystal display. Samsung's Exynos W920 SoC will power both the regular and pro models of the company's upcoming smartwatch. Internal storage will be 16GB, and well see 1.5GB of RAM.

The smartwatch can also serve as a health monitor, monitor sleep patterns, and remind you to drink water.
