Was so looking forward to Watch 5 Pro but feel a bit disappointed in it.

 - watch is smaller

 - no rotating bezel which is such a mistake.

 - same processor 

 - dissappinting trade-in offer

 - ANOTHER set of free buds live with pre-order. I have 4 pairs of these now!

The 'improved' sensor and new toughened glass is all just marketing spin, like 'new whiter than white' clothes detergent every 6 months.

 

Going to stick with my much loved Galaxy Watch 4 Classic and hope they get it right with Watch 6 next year.

No bezel is crazy. I am still rocking the OG Watch from a few years ago and would probably be prepared to upgrade now for new sensors and style but the bezel is just so good it's criminal they ever got rid.

I am not too impressed by the lack of rotating bezel either. Improved battery life and faster charging sound great, but the new watch costs too much. I will stick with my Galaxy Watch 4 Classic as well.

I wonder if they realize this and are leveraging it for marketing on a Galaxy Watch 6 comeback.

The rotating bezel lets you access the watch without having to look at it. Pretty invaluable.

It would be understandable if the screen was bigger as a result of removing the bezel, but it ain't!

I doubt it as they already brought it back last year. What they might do I guess is launch a Watch5 classic

Over priced MI watch. No bezel no buy.

Lackluster at best. I'm sick of this obsession for tiny tiny watches. 

It's basically the same watch with some different software bits. 

The digital bezel on my watch 4 is lame, to the point I tend not to use it if I can help it. 

I dunno. Was looking at preordering and it was helping that I could trade in my watch 4 but as pointed out elsewhere, trade in in the US is nearer £200 while here the max seems to be £100, while technically I can't even find the watch 4 in the trade in options. Word has it in the UK you can't trade in last year's model.... It's somehow not 'any smartwatch' ?

You can trade in the Watch 4 using the option of 'other'. But as you rightly say that only gives you £100 while in the US for the cleric you get nearly £200.

Same here so far just seems like my Watch 4 minus the bezel and another feature coming error who knows, the temperature sensor.
