The Apple Watch Series 5 was revealed today during the Apple Special Event. The Series 5 can be ordered starting today and will be available in stores on September 19, 2019.
The Apple Watch Series 5 was among the highlights of the Apple Special Event today. This latest iteration of the Apple Watch was introduced with a batch of new features, including the Apple Hearing Study, Apple Women’s Health Study, and Apple Heart and Movement Study, all within the Apple Research App. These features were announced to be launching within the U.S. in 2019, but other countries were not given a date for inclusion with these services.
Apple Watch Series 5 will also feature an Always-On Retina Display, LTPO Display, all-day battery life with up to 18 hours of use, and a new built in compass. The always-on feature will allow users to check their watch without raising their wrist or tapping the display, useful during workouts.
Series 5 of the Apple Watch will continue to build on safety features introduced by previous iterations. The EKG is back of course, and new to the Apple Watch will be International Emergency Calling, making it easy to contact emergency services in over 100 countries.
New features and improved services from the past will run on WatchOS 6, and Apple Watch Series 5 will be available in a variety of materials with a wide selection of bands. Included in this will be the first ever titanium models.
GPS models of the Apple Watch Series 5 will start at $399 USD, and cellular models will have a starting price point of $499 USD. The Apple Watch Series 5 can be ordered today, and will be available in stores on September 20, 2019.
