    Samsung will continue to release updates to the Galaxy Watch 5 series. Remember that the devices feature a temperature sensor, but it isn't active yet. So, the company could release an update to activate the functionality. It's important to note that Apple's latest smartwatches also feature a temperature sensor, so Samsung could activate the feature sooner than later.
