Samsung goes for the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro moniker because ‘Classic’ is out of fashion

Instead of going “Classic,” Samsung could go the “Pro” route with the name of its two Galaxy Watch models coming later this year. So the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic successors could be called Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, reports SamMobile.

Previously we heard that Samsung may have a third option in its Watch 5 series, but this speculation may just have added the Pro model without subtracting a Classic for the 2022 series.
It’s unclear why Samsung would change the naming scheme of its smartwatch family, but we bet it has something to do with the “Classic” looking less advanced than its counterpart, when it is, in fact, the larger and more expensive option.

The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro’s giant 572mAh battery capacity already leaked not too long ago, indicating that it could well be the heavyweight on this year’s Galaxy Watch list. Also, given the rumors that the Galaxy Watch 5 will come in two sizes for different wrist surfaces, while the Watch 5 Pri will come in one version.

The Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic are Samsung’s first smartwatches to ship with WearOS 3.0 instead of Samsung’s own Tizen, and the Watch 5 as well as Watch 5 Pro are expected to carry on that tradition, building on the plethora of health and fitness features introduced with their predecessors.
