This is the Samsung Galaxy S22 in Bora Purple

  This is the Samsung Galaxy S22 in Bora Purple Samsung just announced a new lavender colorway for the Galaxy S22 that looks a lot like the rumored purple iPhone 14 Pro.There's a new color coming to the Galaxy S22 lineup and — depending on how you feel about the shade Samsung's settled on — a rather milquetoast one. Named Bora Purple, this deceptively illustrious title is basically just a light lavender, not a deep, rich purple that would look oh so amazing on a phone.

With the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 now available for pre-order, anyone who's been considering buying an Apple Watch 7 may be rethinking their plans.

Apple Watch Series 7 review: a great fitness tracker for iPhone users, but runners should look elsewhere

  Apple Watch Series 7 review: a great fitness tracker for iPhone users, but runners should look elsewhere Our Apple Watch Series 7 review puts the smartwatch to the test to see if it's the right tracker for your workoutsWe found that the Apple Watch Series 7 makes a pitch for the best running watch, but ultimately, it is better if you're a more casual runner or don't require it for any particularly long routes or races. It does make for a good general-purpose tracker, though, capable of recording yoga classes, gym workouts, or HIIT sessions.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 vs. Apple Watch 7: Features and performance

When it comes to features, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 is squarely focused on offering the best experience for anyone active and health conscious. While the Apple Watch 7 offers a lot of fitness tracking, the Samsung device has the edge.

The Apple Watch 7 has standard fitness and workout tracking, monitoring how far you run, walk, or complete a number of different exercises from HIIT sessions to Tai Chi or Yoga. It also keeps an eye on the calories you burn throughout the day and uses its Activity Rings system to motivate you to exercise a certain amount each day as well as stand up regularly.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 does all that but it also has more advanced sensors (more on that later) to ensure you reach your goals more effectively. Both devices offer sleep tracking but the Galaxy Watch 5 promises to deliver improved insights, conjuring up a month-long sleep plan to help you snooze better.

It also pairs up your sleep cycle with your connected smart home, using SmartThings integration to help your lights dim when it notices you falling asleep. You can control your smart home with the Apple Watch 7 but it's not smart enough to detect when you're falling asleep and react accordingly.

Winner: Samsung Galaxy Watch 5. Sleep tracking and extra fitness features are always a winner.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 vs. Apple Watch 7: Sensors

The Apple Watch 7 isn't short on sensors. It has a blood oxygen sensor as well as an ECG facility, along with notifications if your heart rate is unusually high or low.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 goes further than that. It has Samsung's BioActive Sensor which includes sleep tracking, along with heart rate and blood oxygen monitoring. It also had a body composition analysis tool for tracking water retention and bone density. Samsung promises it will lead to more personalized workouts and a tailored approach when setting goals.

There's also a temperature sensor - something that has been rumored to be added to the Apple Watch 8 but definitely isn't part of the 7's repertoire. Depending on your region, blood pressure measurements will also be an option.

Winner: Samsung Galaxy Watch 5. More ways to track your health are sure to be helpful for the fitness conscious.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 vs. Apple Watch 7: Interface and user experience

Predictably, your choices may be limited by your smartphone. The Apple Watch 7 needs the iPhone and won't work at all with any Android phones. The Galaxy Watch 5 will only work with Android phones, much like its predecessor.

Fitbit and Samsung have been leading the way in the Android smartwatch space, and these are the two best wearables the companies have to offer.Most impressive

When it comes to using them, they're fairly similar to what you would expect from iOS or Android depending on your choice of watch.

Battery life-wise, the Apple Watch 7 offers up to 18 hours while the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 promises up to 50 hours. Those numbers are liable to vary in ordinary life but there's no denying the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 is far ahead. A new USB-C-based charger means the Galaxy Watch 5 charges much faster than the Galaxy Watch 4 too, with it likely to beat the Apple Watch along the way.

Winner: Samsung Galaxy Watch 5. Not needing to recharge so often? What more could you want?

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 vs. Apple Watch 7: Verdict

Both watches are refined versions of their predecessor, and your choice may well be more dependent on the smartphone than anything else. However, solely based on their features rather than compatibility, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 is the clear winner for anyone keen to track their health.

With its extensive health sensors and body composition analysis tools, it's an easy choice for fitness fans. With better battery life and a lower price tag, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 is an extraordinarily tempting device for Android owners.

For iPhone users though? Perhaps it's time to wait and see what the Apple Watch 8 has to offer soon instead, or maybe even consider a change of phone if the need for a new smartwatch is so great.
