While Samsung has been making smartwatches for a while now, it never really has a model that is marketed specifically for an outdoor active lifestyle, and that’s until Samsung Galaxy Watch5 Pro comes along.

“Outdoor active lifestyle” is not limited to a rugged watch with a sapphire crystal and titanium case, and a 60% larger battery but also software that favors the outdoor with features like GPX for downloading hiking and cycling routes, turn-by-turn directions, TrackBack function et cetera.

Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Watch5 while looking like its predecessor but in reality, it has received some design changes, including a case back with a wider contact area to achieve a more accurate reading for the BioActive sensor.
