Samsung's new smart watch will achieve fast charging FCC file display

While we still don't know all the details of Samsung's next smartwatch, a recent FCC filing hints that you can expect at least one big update: faster charging.

The FCC documents don't reveal much in terms of features, but they are a good indicator that a product is getting closer to launch. The documents were first discovered by 9to5Google and indicate that there will be three models, namely SM-R900, SM-R910 and SM-R920. They also confirmed basic connectivity specifications, such as that the watches will support Bluetooth, 2.4 and 5Ghz Wi-Fi, and contactless payments. But the most intriguing thing about Samsung's Galaxy Watch 5 lineup is that the watches can charge at 10W. In terms of background, the Galaxy Watch 4 only supports half that speed.

In terms of battery life, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 was a big disappointment. Despite Samsung's promise of 40 hours of battery life, the Galaxy Watch 4 series can hardly last more than a full day if you turn on all the features and applets with the usual bright display. And in The Verge's tests, things got worse once Google Assistant became embedded in Wear OS 3 last month.

If the new Watch also requires daily charging, adding a quick charging feature could help Samsung avoid similar complaints -- especially with the Galaxy Watch 4, which takes about two hours to go from zero to 100%. This feature already exists on many other smartwatches. Fossil added quick charging to its Wear OS watches a few years ago, while Apple introduced it in its 7 series last year.

Beyond user complaints, there are plenty of reasons why Samsung might be prioritizing a better battery experience. The first is sleep tracking. Compared to Fitbit and other fitness trackers, Samsung -- and Apple -- tend to lag in this area because their smartwatches often don't stay overnight without a quick charge before bed. Sleep tracking isn't everyone's top priority, but it's an increasingly popular feature and one that Samsung seems to be interested in. In February, it expanded sleep tracking with a tutoring program. That said, it's hard to make a splash if your sleep-tracking device doesn't last until morning.

Another reason may be due to the Galaxy Watch 5 ". Professional & quot; Version has been basically determined. The watch is rumored to have a 572mAh battery and 5W charging speed, making it a tortoise-like device by today's standards. The standard Galaxy Watch 5 model is also rumored to have a larger battery this time around. The Galaxy Watch 4's two-hour charge time is already poor, and extending it would be a major mistake.

Samsung usually launches its wearables in late summer, so we won't have much time until we know more about the Galaxy Watch 5 series. And, importantly, Samsung gets it right. Last year's Galaxy Watch 4 had some wiggle room because it was -- and still is -- the only Wear OS 3 smartwatch. A few months later, it was a different story.

Not only will Google release its Own Pixel Watch later this fall (which is rumored to have no quick charging feature), but certain existing Wear OS 2 watches are also expected to be upgraded to Wear OS 3 by the end of the year. Android users will have more viable options for wearables than ever before. Samsung doesn't necessarily need to pin multi-day battery life, but it can't withstand the pressure of a quick charge. If it wants to stay ahead.
