The company has recently announced the next version of its smartwatch, the Apple Watch Series 5. As an updated model of the Series 4, which was released last year, the company is looking to woo the fans once again.
However, Apple has also announced that the Apple Watch Series 4 will be discontinued. Coming to the new watch, it will feature the unique Retina display which will stay always-on. This feature is considered as a breakthrough point as no smartwatch currently in the market has this functionality.
With huge improvements in its calling features, the Apple Watch can be seamlessly used for emergency calls.
The watch will be equipped with the Watch OS 6 operating system, which will also be made available for the older models. The new OS has new features that will allow easy tracking of menstrual cycles and check their fertility periods.
If you’re at a noisy place like a club, concert or traffic jam, the smartwatch will detect the noise levels and make an alert if the noise levels exceed the potentially unsafe level. This feature was absent in the Series 4 Watch.
The new Apple Watch 5 can also detect a fall if in case you slip or fall off from a place. And like its predecessor, the new Series 5 is also equipped with a heart-rate tracking device which notifies the user if the heart-rate falls below a threshold level.
To improve navigation and Apple Maps synchronization, the new watch will also feature a dedicated in-built compass.
Color and Finishing
The latest Apple Watch will be available in both 44mm and 40mm sizes. The finishing options include metallic finishes such as aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium; and ceramic finishes such as gold, space black, space gray, silver, and white.
The company has offered a great level of customization options for the fans, with several different types of bands to choose from. Apple has also collaborated with Nike and Hermes to provide different band styles.
This year the company has launched a unique service called “Apple Watch Studio” which allows users to customize the watch completely. This feature is also exclusive to the Apple Watch 5 series.
