Review

With its most recent flagship wristwatch, Samsung isn’t reinventing the wheel, but it doesn’t have to. With a larger battery, a more durable display, and an infrared sensor that can measure your body temperature, the Galaxy Watch 5 (starting at $279.99) improves on the Galaxy Watch 4, which was our favourite Android-compatible smartwatch of 2021. However, as of this writing, there is no way to view your temperature data. The Galaxy Watch 5 shares the same eye-catching appearance, stunning display, and valuable digital bezel for quick navigation as the model from a year ago. It continues to run Wear OS, giving you access to all the standard Google apps.
