Placing solar cells on either side of the watch case allows sufficient sunlight to be collected, no matter how the watch is worn. The Korean manufacturer describes the use of various types of solar cells that can provide relatively high efficiency.

Per LetsGoDigital report, the smartwatch could be named Galaxy Watch 5 or Galaxy Watch Solar, but it’s too early to confirm anything about that. Brands like Garmin and Casio have already shown that such solutions are possible. This allows us to hope for a relatively early release of such Samsung watches.
