Do you remember that mysterious Charger Cradle for the Galaxy Watch 5 that got listed on Samsung’s official website in the USA earlier this month? Well, it’s still missing in action Stateside, but it is now available in the UK.
Samsung offers the Galaxy smartwatch Charger Cradle in one color option (silver) for £20. It doesn’t come with a wall charger in the retail box, so you’ll have to use your own or buy one separately. The device measures 69.7 x 70 x 83.3mm and weighs 95 grams.
In essence, the Charger Cradle is a substitute for flat wireless chargers that don’t work with the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro due to the unusual strap design. Nevertheless, the cradle is compatible with other Samsung smartwatch models, including the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 5.
As of this writing, the Charger Cradle is available in the UK, but it’s also listed on Samsung’s USA portal without the option to buy it, and might be available in other regions. It will most likely hit the shelves in additional markets soon.
If you own a Galaxy Watch 5 Pro or you’re considering buying one, you might also want to buy this Charger Cradle if you don’t want to use the included charging puck. Of course, this won’t solve the issue of Wireless PowerShare, but nevertheless, you will get more options for charging your device without having to remove the wrist strap first.
