If you’re still on the hunt for a gift for someone this year, we have you covered with the perfect gift, Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 5. This is the best smartwatch out there for Android users right now who want a full-featured smartwatch that does plenty and ticks all the right boxes on price, functionality, and style.
The Galaxy Watch 5 is available at an incredible price from Samsung and while not its cheapest smartwatch ever, it’s pretty close. And all the while it’s probably Samsung’s most capable smartwatch to date. Far and away the biggest reason to grab the Galaxy Watch 5 as a gift this year over other smartwatches for Android devices, is the battery life. It now lasts up to 50 hours on a single charge which is a lot more than last year’s Galaxy Watch 4.
That means you can wear it for a couple days before needing to put it back on the charger. And that really is a huge benefit for anyone who’s busy all day every day. Even if the battery should happen to run low, it charges up quicker now too. Basically there’s very little reason you shouldn’t always be able to make sure that it has a charge. Though we would suggest buying a second charger to take with you while one stays at home.
The Galaxy Watch 5 is also a durable gift
Battery life isn’t the only improvement Samsung made over its previous watches. The Galaxy Watch 5 makes a great gift for this holiday season because it’s a durable one. The screen uses sapphire crystal to protect the display underneath. So you can rest assured that scratches and scuffs aren’t going to ruin the screen long before it’s time should be done. If at all.
This doesn’t mean the watch screen is unbreakable. Of course. It is however a heck of a lot more protected than other watches that don’t use a sapphire crystal display. You can currently pick up the Galaxy Watch 5 for $229 down from its regular $279 price. This is a limited time deal though.
