Galaxy Watch5 Features
The Galaxy Watch5 is equipped with Samsung’s unique BioActive Sensor that drives the next era of digital health monitoring.

Plus, its 3-in-1 BioActive Sensor works in combination with the other sensors of Galaxy Watch5 series, including the newly introduced temperature sensor, to provide users with an in-depth understanding of their wellness. The temperature sensor uses infrared technology for more accurate readings. This opens new possibilities for developers to expand their health and wellness options and for users to take advantage of all-new experiences.
