I finally decided to get a watch 5 40mm Bluetooth + 4G. Its certainly more advanced than my original Gear s! it's fitness tracking is great and it's everything I'd hoped for. The battery life is not as great. It's manageable, as I charge it when I'm in the shower or sitting at my desk, but I feel that I should have got the pro. If you are still deciding you should consider that aspect.

Really,? Have you found any particular settings that help? I've made the automatic health readings less frequent and have chosen a mostly black watchface. That helps a bit. Have you tried playing with the settings?

Yes I also did the health reading settings less frequent. Also turned off location and NFC because those functions also I'm not using frequently.  Also using the Watch 5 Pro watchface 😄 One and a half day easily manageable for me.

Still loving the watch. I've found that a daily restart (watch and phone) improves the watch's overall battery performance.
