The Samsung Galaxy Watch5 will charge a lot more quickly than its predecessor, according to the latest leak. Tipster SnoopyTech claims Samsung is packing a 10W magnetic charger with the wearable, meaning the peak charging rate will be twice as high as that of the Watch4.
However, we expect a bigger battery in the Watch5, which alongside the charging curve limitations mean that actual charging time improvement is hard to predict.

The images reveal the charger cable is USB-C as was to be expected. While 10W output is a lot for a smartwatch it’s actually conservative in general terms so just about any PD charger should be able to pump out enough juice.
