The Watch 5 Pro is more durable with a casing that’s made of titanium (versus stainless steel in the Watch 4 Classic) and there’s a distinct raised lip to protect the display (which now uses Sapphire crystal) in place of the rotating dial to brace for any potential impact

 It comes in only one size (45mm), though, unlike the Watch 4 Classic that comes in two— 42mm and 46mm

The screen size is 1.4mm. Bigger is better in the case of “pro” multi-GPS smartwatches,

it would have been nice if there was another Watch 5 Pro option with a smaller dial. (The Watch 5 becomes the only option in such a case. It is available in 40mm and 44mm sizes.

The pro Watch 5 is also getting a couple of “exclusive” features, turn-by-turn route navigation and track back, that you’d normally associate with professional GPS watches.

Watch 5 Pro comes with a magnetic D-buckle sport band. A bigger chassis –and pro branding— naturally means there’s more space to fit a bigger battery

The Watch 5 Pro, to that effect, gets a sizeable 590mAh battery (even as the Watch 5 makes do with a smaller 284mAh/410mAh battery depending on the size). Battery life is good, not great.

This is Samsung’s 5nm Exynos W920 — dual Cortex-A55 cores, Mali-G68 GPU— which is paired with 1.5GB RAM and 16GB of storage. Running the show is Wear OS 3.5. Both watches are slick and powerful, with barely any lag or stutter in day-to-day use.
