Two of Samsung's non-cellular Galaxy Watch 5 Golf Edition sizes return to their best prices at the giant retailer. The smallest 40 mm variant now steeply falls to $229 from $329, putting it as cheap as the discounted standard edition of the watch. For $259, the bigger option with a 44 mm case gets the same $100 price reduction as well.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 is more than just a golf smartwatch
In addition to the exclusive Smart Caddie app feature for pin data and direction along with the golf-themed design, the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro (review) are phenomenal Wear OS smartwatches based on Android. This time, both have tougher military grade protection and an aluminum frame. There is also a sapphire glass protection to the display, which is an upgrade to the predecessor.
When it comes to core smartwatch capabilities, Samsung enhanced the biometric sensor on the Galaxy Watch 5. Meaning, monitoring vitals such as heart rate and blood oxygen and sport detection become more reliable. Users can still tap the on-demand functions like blood pressure level monitoring to learn if you have hypertension or the ECG for a more extensive reading of the heart's condition.
Samsung gave the Galaxy Watch 5 (Pro) a bigger battery capacity and more optimized Wear OS 3 software. This results in longer endurance for the wearable that lasts multiple days in our testing. Additionally, charging is quicker, thanks to the higher 10 watts rating.
If you're an Android or Samsung Galaxy user, the Galaxy Watch 5 (Pro) is one of the best smartwatches you can pair to your phone. And if you don't prefer having the Golf Edition, both the Bespoke and regular editions are on sale as well.
