Android Update

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 5 is now $249 (reg. $279)

Amazon has just dropped the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 down to $249 for the 40mm and $279 for the 44mm models. They were cheaper earlier this week, but we likely won’t see that price again for another month, once we get closer to Black Friday. So now is a good time to pick one up.

This pricing is available for all three colors: gray, pink gold and silver. The larger 45mm Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is not on sale, it’s still listed at $499. So unfortunately, we’ll need to wait a bit longer for that one to get cheaper.

The Galaxy Watch 5 is a pretty nice upgrade over the Watch 4, though many will complain about the rotating bezel being gone. But it now has much better battery life, a new version of Wear OS, and it also has the ability to measure your skin temperature. So the watch can give you a full picture of how your health is doing.


Then there’s the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. It’s the biggest watch Samsung has ever made at 45mm. It’s a bit more rugged and durable, and also has routes available. So you can get directions while you’re out on your run without having to look down at your watch or your phone. It also has a whopping 80 hours of battery life, which is fairly impressive for the size of this smartwatch. Apple can’t match that with the Apple Watch.

Both of these watches are really good, and to be able to get some free money from Best Buy with your pre-order definitely makes this a much sweeter deal. The Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will be dropping on August 26, so this pre-order deal is available until August 25.
