Samsung Unpacked: 5 Major Foldables, Wearables Updates

Shane Snider

Samsung Unpacked August 2022 focused on improvements to the company’s premium foldable line of devices, along with wearables.

Galaxy Watch 5 Recharges Battery With Upgrade 

Many reviewers were down on Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4 series’ stingy battery life, so the company addressed that major complaint with bigger batteries in the Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro. Samsung is also promising better durability and a nifty new skin temperature sensor. The new watches feature sapphire glass normally found on luxury analog timepieces, giving users a scratch-free experience.

While all batteries have been improved, the Pro model offers an even larger battery (in a larger case). The watches offer a wide range of options starting at $280 for the Bluetooth-only model. The Pro model starts at $450.
