New from Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 The series brings several upgrades over the 2021 lineup, and one of the most exciting improvements lies in the larger batteries with faster charging. Instead of topping out at 5W, the Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro both support 10W wireless charging. And since we had the Galaxy Watch 5 (40mm) and Watch 5 Pro in our possession, we thought we should put Samsung’s wireless charging claims to the test.

Samsung claims that the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro can recharge 35% of its generous 590mAh battery in 30 minutes. Meanwhile, the company says that the standard Galaxy Watch 5 can reach 45% battery charge in the same amount of time.

We tested the Galaxy Watch 5 (40mm) and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro charging speeds in a new YouTube video that you can find below. Since none of the smartwatches charges with a wall charger, we plugged the included charging disk into an official Samsung 45W charger. However, keep in mind that batteries are still limited to 10W, so using a 45W charger instead of 15W or 25W shouldn’t make a difference.

In our testing, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro reached 0-30% battery charge in half an hour, while the smaller Watch 5 (40mm) topped out at 36% battery charge over the same time window. It’s a bit disappointing that both smartwatches didn’t live up to Samsung’s claims, but as you’re about to see, they performed well enough.

At the 60-minute mark, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro had 55% battery charge, while the smaller model reached 85%. In fact, the Galaxy Watch 5 (40mm) battery was fully recharged in just under 90 minutes, while the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro was at 78% at 90 minutes. The Pro model achieved a 100% battery charge in about 2 hours and 9 minutes.

The new Galaxy Watch 5 series delivers impressive performance, thanks to the upgraded 10W wireless charging. Keep in mind that according to Samsung, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro should provide up to 80 hours of use on a full charge, while the standard model should last about 50 hours. Charging time between one and a half and two hours for two to three days of use isn’t a bad deal.
