Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 charges faster

Samsung has made a complete new start with the Galaxy Watch 4. With the Galaxy Watch 5, Samsung is taking the next step and wants to attract more people with a Pro model. As is now known, one disadvantage of the predecessors must be eliminated. Samsung built in Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro that is, a fast charging function. As with smartphones, you can charge the new watches in less time:

A leaker posted images of the new charging station on Twitter and mentioned that it supports 10 watts. This should be the new Watches can be charged to 45 percent in 30 minutes. This is faster than the Galaxy Watch 4, but probably even slower than the Apple Watch 7, which charges up to 80 percent in 45 minutes. If the Samsung watch were faster to charge, the value would have been up to 80 percent.

Be that as it may, the evolution is positive, because the slow charging speed of old smartwatches is a disadvantage. For example, it often happens to me that I want to do sports quickly, but the watch no longer has enough battery. Therefore, a fast charging function is a great advantage. Of the new charger also has a USB-C connector. With the predecessor it is still a USB-A connector, as I did with the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic test criticized. So in the future you will no longer need two different power supplies with USB C and A if you have a modern Samsung cell phone and a smart watch.
