Apple has also announced Apple Watch Series 5 with features on Always-On Retina display and international emergency calling in Cellular models amongst others. It runs on WatchOS6.
Apple Watch Series 5 features an Always-On Retina Display that allows the time and important information to remain visible at all times. The screen intelligently dims when a user’s wrist is down and returns to full brightness with a raise or a tap. It offers upto 18-hour battery life.
This watch incorporates new built-in compass and updated Maps app which allow users to see which way they are facing. The new Compass app enables the user to see heading, incline, latitude, longitude and current elevation. Users can even add one of three new Compass complications to their watch face to see direction at a glance.
The cellular models of Apple Watch Series 5 allow international calls to emergency services, regardless of where the device was originally purchased or if the cellular plan has been activated. International emergency calling also works with fall detection, if enabled, to automatically place an emergency call if Apple Watch senses the user has taken a hard fall and remains motionless for about a minute.
This app also has additional health and fitness features which are features of watchOS 6, including the new Cycle Tracking app, which gives female customers the ability to log important information related to their menstrual cycles, and see predicted timing for their next period and fertile windows. The Noise app helps users understand the ambient sound levels in environments such as concerts and sporting events that could negatively impact hearing.
The watchOS 6 also brings dynamic new watch faces, including Meridian, Modular Compact and Solar Dial, which can be easily customised for quicker access to favourite apps.
Apple Watch Series 5 is available in a wider range of materials, including aluminium, stainless steel, ceramic and an all-new titanium.
For this watch, Apple has introduced new case material made of titanium that has superb strength-to-weight ratio and is lighter than stainless steel. Available in two brushed finishes, the natural titanium has a custom-engineered surface which helps maintain its colour and resist staining, while the space black titanium achieves its deep colour from a diamond-like coating
