What’s New in Samsung Watch 5?
Like always, with the new Galaxy Watch, Samsung has introduced five revamped Watch Faces with Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Models. If you’re not aware, I’d like to tell you that there are two Analog Watch Faces and two Digital Watch Faces that perfectly work with Galaxy Watch 4 Models. One of the Analog Watch faces is about a battery graph, real-time weather and workout details, while the other one is just a floral design with no information on the screen.
The other two Digital Watch Faces is all about showing the details like extensive weather information, workout metrics, day, and time; while the other Digital Face is focused only on time, and workout. As mentioned, one of the Galaxy Watch 5 Faces doesn’t work with Galaxy Watch 4 which is HealthMonitor due to a change in hardware.
