Apple Watch Series 5 is the sleekest, most polished Apple Watch yet

Apple Watch Series 5 smartwatch launched along with new iPad

For more stories, go to www.businessinsider.co.za. The Series 3 will stick around at a lower $199 price, and the Series 4 is going away.

Stan Ng presents the new Apple Watch at an Apple event at their headquarters in Cupertino, California, U.S. September 10, 2019.

Apple Watch Series 5 was unveiled by Apple at its "Special Event" on Tuesday. However, the 4th gen Apple Watch is noticeably rounder and sleeker than its predecessor.

There are more cases and straps to choose from than ever before, with aluminum, stainless steel, ceramic, and a new titanium the casing materials you can pick from. With the Series 5, you'll be able to pair a watch case with any band you'd like.

The Apple Watch 5 packs an Always On Retina display which, well, never turns off - it just dims when you're not using it, so time and complications (notifications) are always visible.


Frank Gillett, principal analyst at Forrester, told CNN Business that the Series 5 "improvements were very compelling for new and upgrade buyers, especially the always-on display and the expanding range of health monitoring features". But how? Well, this is possible through multiple technologies that work together in tandem. Well, in my hands-on time with the Series 5, it's clear that this watch's version of always on is far more advanced than other watches. Apple didn't say how much these bad boys will cost in the presentation, but it's likely they'll cost much more than base models. Joining the ranks of other heath features, like early warnings based on ECG readings and fall detection, is the ability to make an emergency call on any cellular Apple Watch around the world.

The Series 5 starts at $399 for the 40-millimeter Global Positioning System model and $499 for the LTE version. Sleep tracking is one of the features that was rumored for this year, but that will have to wait for the Series 6 or beyond.

Apps are optimized for always-on display.

It will also have a dedicated compass app that will display and track your heading, incline, latitude, longitude, and elevation.

The device will also be powered by the A13 Bionic chip and the battery will last one hour longer than last year's iPhone XR, Apple claims. It will offer predictions for your next period and fertile window.
