Galaxy Watch5 

The Galaxy Watch5 is all about helping Galaxy users be in their best shape possible. 

This includes equipping the watch with a host of health monitoring features. Most prominently, there’s the BioActive Sensor. Essentially, it’s one chip that enables three other sensors which are the Optical Heart Rate, Electrical Heart Signal, and Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis. 

Too much to take in? Just think of it as a new tech that enables the Galaxy Watch5 to perform its function of getting you healthy. That’s through Samsung’s Holistic Health approach. 

You can record your Body Composition and the Watch5 will help tailor workouts that work well to achieving your fitness goals. But it goes beyond workouts. It also has suggestions for your post-workout, rest, and recovery process. Like an actual trainer, but on your wrist. 

There’s also the other usual smartwatch functions like Sleep tracking, getting your notifications and what not. It also comes with a 13 percent larger battery. 

The display is made of Sapphire Crystal which Samsung swears is tougher than most other materials used on other smartwatches.

The Galaxy Watch5 comes in different sizes and colors.

  • 44mm: Graphite, Sapphire, Silver
  • 40mm: Graphite, Pink Gold, Silver 

Galaxy Watch5 Pro

The Galaxy Watch5 Pro is everything the Galaxy Watch5 is but made for the outdoor enthusiasts. It’s made more durable and has extra features to support hiking, cycling and more. 

Build-wise it’s also made of Sapphire Crystal but enhanced. It has a titanium casing that protects the display. You also get a D-Buckle Sports Band made for rugged durability.

For outdoor activities, it has GPX making tracking easy. As you hike or cycle, it’ll help you navigate turn-by-turn so you can keep your eyes on the path. And when you’re ready to head back, there’s a Track back feature that traces your starting point. Great for those challenged with directions.

The Galaxy Watch5 Pro comes in 45mm in either Black Titanium or Gray Titanium.

Buds2 Pro

It’s easy to dismiss this as just a tacked-on offering but Samsung did make significant upgrades to their new headliner earbuds. 

The Galaxy Buds2 Pro now supports Hi-Fi 24bit Audio. This offers high-dynamic range and a crystal-clear audio resolution. Naturally, there’s also ANC or Active Noise Cancellation which is also enabled in calls for a clearer call conversation. 

If you own a Samsung TV or other Samsung devices, the Buds2 Pro can seamlessly switch between them if necessary.

Form-wise, the Galaxy Buds2 Pro is 15 percent smaller than its predecessor. To some people, that could mean it’s easier to misplace. In case that happens, they should be easy to locate using SmartThings Find now. 

It has an IPX7 rating which means it should be okay to take on workouts, except if your workout is swimming. 

The Galaxy Buds2 Pro comes in Graphite, White, and Bora Purple.

FreeBuds Pro 2

Huawei has released its latest TWS Bluetooth earbuds — the FreeBuds Pro 2 — in the Philippines.

The FreeBuds Pro 2 will retail for PhP 9,999 via Huawei’s Shopee and Lazada shops, online stores, authorized retail outlets.

The device will be available in Silver Blue, Ceramic White, and Silver Frost, with an installment payment option.

ANC 2.0: Creating a quiet world

The latest earbuds feature an adaptive active noise cancellation (ANC) technology, along with the original integrated call noise cancellation to enable users to dynamically listen to their preferred music or content.

This intelligent ANC 2.0 takes what noise cancellation is capable of even further, as the FreeBuds Pro 2 can accurately identify and judge the external sound field environment with changes.

For instance, when a user is in the subway, the noise cancellation effects deepen and reduces severe low-frequency noise. In contrast, when in coffee shops, the ANC intelligently adapts. In any case, the earbuds keep users immersed to whatever they’re listening to.

On top of this innovative technology, the FreeBuds Pro 2 has up to 30 hours of playback time, thanks to its 580mAh charging case. Boosted by its 11mm driver, the earbuds is also rated IP 54 for splash, water, and dust resistance.
