While smartwatches are trendy among the young, gym-going demographic, I think people who could benefit the most from them are aging relatives and if you’re looking to buy one for your parents or grandparents, Samsung’s feature-packed Galaxy Watch 5 is on sale.
We see stories about smartwatches saving lives every now and then and while a smartwatch won’t magically make you healthier and is no substitute for good health advice, a capable one like the Galaxy Watch 5 can be used as a starting point to determine if something isn’t right.
The Galaxy Watch 5 has a circular design, so unlike the Apple Watch, it doesn’t feel like a mini smartphone on your wrist. The watch has a 1.2 inch screen and feels comfortable on the wrist. It is powered by the punchy Exynos W920 chip processor that ensures solid performance.
The Watch 5 isn’t as tied to the Samsung ecosystem as the company’s previous watches and you have the option to use Google Assistant instead of Bixby and you can also download useful third-party apps from the Wear OS Play Store.
Packed with health features, the Galaxy Watch 5 can help the wearer measure changes in skin temperature, take an EKG to see how the heart is functioning, monitor heart rate, calculate blood oxygen levels and monitor blood pressure. It can also perform sleep activity analysis.
The Watch 5 can also help you optimize your exercise routine and be more aware of your daily health goals.
So whether you want to gift the Watch 5 to someone whose health you want to monitor or need a good smartwatch yourself, the Galaxy Watch 5 is one of the best options, and it’s currently on sale for the biggest discount.
The 40mm LTE model that costs $329.99 has been marked down to $259.99 and the LTE model has dropped from $279.99 to $229.99. Stocks run out fast, so order one right away.
