We’re a fan of both, with the main differences on the Pro being a bigger screen, larger battery and more durable titanium case. It’s also significantly more expensive, although neither are cheap by modern smartwatch standards.
With that in mind, you might be on the lookout for a great deal or bundle. That’s the purpose of this article, although you might be tempted to wait until Black Friday. It takes place on 25 November, before Cyber Monday on 28 November. There’s a chance we’ll see better deals on the Galaxy Watch 5 then, but it’s by no means guaranteed.
If you’d rather not wait until then, it’s unlikely you’ll be much worse off. Here are the best deals on both the Watch 5 and 5 Pro this November.

When was the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 released?
The Galaxy Watch 5 and 5 Pro were announced at Samsung’s Unpacked event on 10 August. Both have been on sale since 26 August in the US, UK and many other countries.
How much did the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 cost at launch?
The Galaxy Watch 5 and 5 Pro are premium wearables, and their RRPs reflect that:
Galaxy Watch 5 Pro (45mm, Bluetooth): $449.99/£429/€429
Galaxy Watch 5 Pro (45mm, LTE): $499.99/£479/€519
That’s slightly more expensive than last year’s Watch 4 (from $249/£249) and Watch 4 Classic (from $349/£349). The Apple Watch Series 8‘s starting price of $399/£419 means it sits roughly in the middle of the Watch 5 lineup.
