We update the main physical and orbital properties of the transiting hot Saturn planet HAT-P-19 b, based on a global modelling of high-precision transit and occultation light curves, taken with ground-based and space telescopes, archive spectra and radial velocity measurements, brightness values from broadband photometry, and Gaia parallax. We collected 65 light curves by amateur and professional observers, measured mid-transit times, analyzed their differences from calculated transit timings based on reference ephemeris information, which we update as a result. We haven’t found any periodicity in the residuals of a linear trend, which we attribute to the accumulation of uncertainties in the reference mid-transit time and the orbital period. We comment on the scenarios describing the formation and migration of this hot-Saturn type exoplanet with a bloated atmosphere yet a small core, although it is orbiting a metal-rich ([Fe/H] = 0.24 dex) host star. Finally, we review the planetary mass-radius, the orbital period-radius and density, and the stellar metallicity-core mass diagrams, based on the parameters we derive for HAT-P-19 b and those of the other seventy transiting Saturn-mass planets from the NASA Exoplanet Archive.
