Snoopy Tech has leaked the Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro charger specs and photos. Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 will contain a 10W USB-C charging “puck” that will charge the smartwatch to 45% in 30 minutes. That’s fantastic news, especially for the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, which is slated to have a larger, 500 mAh battery pack and longer battery life than its predecessor, the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic.
As long as the charging wire is linked to a 10W converter, of course, but at least the magnetically attached puck has a USB-C port instead of the old USB-A port that Samsung wearable chargers come with. Snoopy said the 40mm Galaxy Watch 5 will cost $349 CAD and the 44mm will cost $389 CAD. The stainless steel Watch 5 Pro costs $559 CAD.
SnoopyTech shared insights on the Galaxy Watch 5’s charging process today.
The Galaxy Watch 5’s 5W charger will be 10W, as previously rumored. Last year’s 5W model took 110 minutes, or little under two hours, to fully charge.
There’s no direct comparison with the Galaxy Watch 5, however it charges to 45% in 30 minutes. If charging were linear, it would take little over an hour, but it’s likely to be slower. Samsung is increasing the Galaxy Watch 5 series’ battery size, so charging may be about the same speed.
The Galaxy Watch 5 and 5 Pro will likely come with a wireless charger. Samsung’s forthcoming wireless chargers could charge a phone and wristwatch faster.
Will this charger work with the Galaxy Watch 4 series? Faster charging and longer battery life will reduce Galaxy Watch 5 battery anxiety. The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro reportedly lasts three days on a charge.
