Samsung Watch Pakistan in 2024
By far the most sought-after smart watch in the Android world is the Samsung Galaxy line of watches. These watches are at the top of the smart watch game at the moment, bar no one else but Apple themselves. They offer a combination of some of the best quality, features and flexibility in the market right now.
The latest product that Samsung Watch Pakistan has available is the Galaxy Watch 6 and the Watch 6 Classic. These are some of the best watches currently on the market. But the Galaxy Watch 5 came out just a year before. With the price points that these watches are often at, it can be a point of discussion about what watch a person in Pakistan should buy.
With that in mind, let’s compare a few of the major things from this year’s and last year’s watch and see if the new one is worth it.
The Samsung Watch Pakistan Options
The watches that we will be talking about in this article will be the standard version of the everyday watch that Samsung released in both years. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 and the Galaxy Watch 5.
We won’t be talking about the ‘special’ versions of each Samsung mobile watch that was released; the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro for last year’s watch and the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic that came out this year. The reason is that these watches are more ‘unique’ watches that were made for more enthusiast users and were not really meant to be watches for the everyday person, and as such, are not really comparable.
So, we will focus on the main watch of each year. Now, let’s get to the comparison:
At a quick glance, both the Galaxy Watch 5 and the Galaxy Watch 6 look more or less identical (which, if you ask us, is the most important thing for everyone other than the person wearing the watch themself). There are differences, but they are very, very subtle.
The only minor difference on the front is the bezel, which is somewhat slimmer on the newer watch compared to the older one. But again, the difference is so minor that you might not even notice it unless you put them side-by-side.
The only other major difference in terms of visuals between the two watches is the colour options that you can get for each. Interestingly, there is one less option on the newer watch. The new watch comes in graphite, with an additional option of silver or gold depending on if you get the 44mm or the 40mm option. The older Samsung Watch 5, on the other hand, had graphite and silver in both sizes, with the option of either a sapphire or a pink gold, depending on whether you get the larger or smaller version.
Let’s talk about maybe the one place that you might actually notice a difference between the two watches when it comes to day-to-day use. The Watch 6 boasts a slightly larger battery, somewhere around 15% as compared to the Watch 5.
For people who aren’t aware, the Galaxy Watch 5’s battery was so borderline that you would be thanking yourself if you got more than a single day of usage without having to charge it at least for a little while. This is something that, unfortunately, plagues most of the larger flagships when it comes to watches.
The Watch 6, though, is actually a noticeable improvement in this regard. You can now easily get through a day of regular watch use with more than half your battery remaining, even with the Always-On display (or the always-on-battery gone, as we like to call it) turned on.
This means that compared to one day on the older watch, you might actually get a day and a half or even two days if you use it carefully. But for most people, the difference in regular use will only be between charging it at night or charging it in the afternoon the next day. You will have to decide whether and how much that matters to you.
Samsung Watch Price
Now that we have told you some of the major differences, we should probably tell you about the one thing that often makes or breaks a purchase decision for a person living in Pakistan: the watch price.
Samsung smart watch price in Pakistan is already going to be higher than the overwhelming majority of other options on the market. The reason for this is that they have possibly the highest quality watches and, maybe more importantly, the highest brand value in the Android space
compared to anyone else.
So, with that in mind, the current price of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 is going to be around 60,000 to 70,000 rupees, depending on the size and the seller. On the other hand, the price of the Galaxy Watch 5 from last year will be around 40,000 to 50,000 rupees. As you can see, there is a major incentive to go for the hardly-year-old watch over the latest version.
Considering what the Samsung watch price in Pakistan tends to be compared to most other watches, it may be a good idea to look at last year’s version over the latest one. The unfortunate reality of iterative updates in technology, and especially personal tech, means that the Watch 5 is just as viable an option even today in 2024 as the latest watch from Samsung.
