    In the fwiw dept., my Watch 5 is getting about 60+ hours on a full charge. This pleases me.

    That's pretty good. Mine would probably last between 36-48 if I let it die.

    That's excellent. Is that the GW5 pro? I have the GW5 40mm and I surprisingly got 48 hours before my last charge but usually only get about 30 hours.

    I'm wondering if the last update to our S22 phones have something to do with improved battery life on our watches. Were you getting around 60 hours before? I couldn't get more than 30 hours on my watch and then all of a sudden, out of the blue, I get 48 hours. The only change I can think of is the update on my phone.

    5 Pro coming from a 4 and, before that, a 3. Battery life on the 5 Pro is insane. I'm getting 50+ hours on a full charge with normal vibrating notifications and workouts. 2x my 4.

    I just got my Watch 5 a couple of weeks ago, so I can't compare it with my phone running on 4.0.

    I have the LTE version and get a day and a half of battery life which is great for me.

    Dang ... These recent posts have me thinking about trading in my 4 classic for a 5 or 5 pro! I can live with the battery life on the 4 and charging it daily doesn't really bother me, but who doesn't want more battery life
    But I do love the rotating bezel LOL

    I'm a heavy user, use the various health features regularly throughout the day, have heart rate monitor on continuous monitoring, workout tracking, YouTube music while I work out, LTE always on, AOD on, etc.

    I can get about a day and a half, but since I don't sleep tracking, it goes on the charger overnight.

    I could never, NEVER get through my entire day with all of that turned on, let alone more on my 4 Classic.

    I'd do HR at every 10 min, LTE off, (except when I needed it), didn't run health checks as often, AOD off, and I'd get about 18/19 hours.

    You, probably, (I did), will get used to NOT having the bezel, (especially if you go Pro due to its design), very quickly, and, if like me, would greatly appreciate the increased battery life far more.

    Now... come out with a future version that has both the 5 Pro's battery life AND the 4 Classic's bezel... INSTANT upgrade, take my money, lol.

    I think you will only see a huge difference in battery with the pro. The 40mm & 44mm, battery life seems to be about 30 hours, 48 hrs at best.

    Yeah, I got used to no bezel after a couple of days, but I still miss it.

    I suspect the watch 6 will fulfill your wish... Exactly the same hardware as the 5 pro (and 4) with the big battery and rotating bezel why develop new features when they can just sell us the same hardware year after year fixing one problem and creating another... I can't be the only one who has noticed this trend from Samsung.

    I've really enjoyed the lower profile of the 5 vs the 5 Pro. and I don't miss the rotating bezel, at all.
