Why This Samsung Watch is My Favorite Smartwatch at the Moment

Now that I’m feeling old age upon me (lol), it has become all the more important for me to keep track of my busy life and the habits that come with it. This includes how much sleep I get and how much I work out and, ever since my cardiologist told me I had arrhythmia, this also includes my heart rate. That’s why it was so important for me to find a smartwatch that matches my overall lifestyle.

I had tried a lot of smartwatches in the past but none of them really captured my heart. And then I tried the Samsung Galaxy Watch5 Series. You could say it was “love at first wear” because the minute I strapped it on, I knew it was the one. While other smartwatches felt like I had a watch on, the Samsung Galaxy Watch5 hardly feels like it’s there. It’s light and comfortable and doesn’t feel like a burden whatsoever.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch5 also entered my life at an opportune moment: when I had (finally) made the switch to Samsung after years of being an Apple user. It basically fits right into the new ecosystem of devices in my life with my Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 foldable smartphone. This fitness companion knows me best and is an essential accessory for anyone looking to lead an active lifestyle.

Since I bike a lot, I love how its all-new Route workout feature which lets me easily import my workout routes from my smartphone so I can focus on the trail hands-free. It’s good for hikers too.

I actually also got some Samsung Galaxy Buds2 Pro when I pre-ordered my Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 (told ya I have a full ecosystem haha) and this lets me enjoy voice or vibration-guided turn-by-turn navigation so I don’t have to worry about getting lost.

All I gotta do is connect to the Samsung Health mobile application on my Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 for personalized sleep coaching based on data collected by my Samsung Galaxy Watch5. Armed with sleep animal symbols that represent your sleeping style, it makes things more fun by allowing me to take on daily missions, checklists, meditation guidance, and sleep reports so I can sleep better.

You can also create an optimal sleep environment with SmartThings by automating your ecosystem of smart home devices to work just the way you like. When it’s time for bed, the Samsung Galaxy Watch5 automatically sets connected lights, air-conditioning units, televisions, and more to predetermined settings that encourage more restful sleep, so you wake up refreshed
