Samsung’s most recent and greatest flagship smartwatch, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, has a glaring design flaw that many owners have picked up on. The band on the watch doesn’t allow you to use Samsung’s Wireless PowerShare feature. To solve this issue, Samsung has a new workaround in the form of a charging cradle.
For those who are unfamiliar with Samsung’s terminology, the Wireless PowerShare function enables smartphones like the Galaxy S22 series to wirelessly recharge other devices. However, for this to work, the two devices’ wireless charging coils must be in close proximity to one another.
Samsung has posted an unreleased charging cradle on their website that will enable you to use Wireless PowerShare without removing the strap on the Watch 5 Pro, as first reported by SamMobile. According to the listing, the charging cradle appears to include a platform on top for the watch and a platform on the bottom for a different device.
