If you're looking to snug last year's Galaxy Watch 5 for the best deal, Best Buy now has its retail price reduced by $100 (36 percent off). This puts the capable Galaxy smartwatch down to their best price, which starts at $179.

The listed variants include the graphite in 40 mm case size with GPS-only connectivity. Other finishes like the pink gold in 44 mm case is also offered at $209. But if you prefer the option that has cellular features, the cheapest one falls to $229 with the same $100 savings.

Why the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 is a better buy at this rate

For those users holding more dated Android smartwatches or Galaxy Watch models, the Galaxy Watch 5 (review) is a perfect upgrade without breaking the bank. And while Samsung already introduced the Galaxy Watch 6 recently, the current discounts make the Galaxy Watch 5 recommendable given it shares core features with the newer model at almost half the price.

Samsung retains the premium-looking design on the Galaxy Watch 5, but they gave the wearable a tougher build than its predecessor. It is now built from armor aluminum material while protected by a more durable sapphire crystal. Overall, this results in the watch getting an upgraded military grade 810H rating.

Under the hood, the Galaxy Watch 5 has a larger battery capacity that further extends the endurance of the smartwatch. There is also a faster wireless charging at 10 watts. More importantly, vital health and fitness tracking features such as ECG and blood pressure monitoring are supplemented by a temperature sensor for enhanced menstrual cycle and detection of fever in users.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
