Rather than reimagining its smartwatches from the ground up, Samsung is focussing on improving the basics with the Galaxy Watch 5 series. The company is expected to bring longer battery life, improved software, and better integration with other devices. It is also bringing faster charging with its upcoming wearables.

Samsung seems to be upgrading charging speeds with the Galaxy Watch 5 and the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. The company is bringing a new wireless charging puck with a USB Type-C port, which supports up to 10W fast charging. According to leakster SnoopyTech, the Galaxy Watch 5 series can be charged up to 45% in just 30 minutes. That’s much faster than the Galaxy Watch 4 and almost as fast as the Apple Watch Series 7.

You can see the new wireless charger in a series of images below. It will likely be bundled with the Galaxy Watch 5 and the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. Samsung could also bring faster smartwatch charging to its future wireless chargers that can simultaneously charge a phone and a smartwatch.

Whether or not this charger supports backward compatibility with the Galaxy Watch 4 series remains to be seen. The combination of faster charging and longer battery life will help bring down battery anxiety among potential Galaxy Watch 5 owners. Rumors claim that the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro can last up to three days on a single charge.
