After the leak of the Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro prices, at least in Canadian dollars, tipter Snoopy Tech is now working on their charger specs and images. It turns out that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 will have a USB-C charging puck capable of 10W output that will power the smartwatches on a 45% battery in 30 minutes.
That’s pretty good news, especially for the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, which is widely expected to have a much larger 500mAh battery pack, thus much longer battery life than the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, which could be called a predecessor despite its changed naming schemes.
As long as the charging cable is plugged into a 10W power adapter, sure, but at least the magnetically attached puck has a modern USB-C instead of the outdated USB-A port that came with expensive Samsung portable chargers.

Apple, in turn, lists Check out Series 7 charging speeds that are faster than what’s speculated the new Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 charger will bring. The Watch Series 7 charges to 80% in 45 minutes, Apple says.
Given the rumored 45% in 30 minute charge speed of the Galaxy Watch 5, it’s doubtful the 10W puck can now get it to 80% for another 15 minutes. However, the Apple Watch Series 7 has a much smaller 309 mAh battery and a rather puny battery life that can barely last you all day with normal use.
Samsung, on the other hand, is preparing to announce a true smartwatch with a battery life of two or three days, at least as far as the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is concerned and is huge for a smart watch with 500 mAh battery. in question.
That’s why claimed charge times aren’t an apples-to-apples comparison, as a Watch 7 might charge faster but then drain faster, while the Watch 5 Pro will keep going despite the potentially slower charge rate.
