The 2018 Series 4 Apple Watch is one of Apple’s best products of the year. It is also the best smartwatch to buy. Apple has updated the Watch to Series 5 offering it a handful of new features yet still retaining the same design. It is more like a Series 4S.
It’s still miles ahead of the competition. Here are some of the great features that make it a great smartwatch.
Same Iconic Design
The Apple Watch Series 5 is somewhat similar to Series 4 except it comes in either a 44mm case size or a slightly smaller 40mm for slim wrists. The design has become a classic.
An always-on Display
The biggest change for the Series 5 over the Series 4 is, it has an always-on display, mans it always displays the time. It appears to be crazy as this has never been an option on the Apple Watch until now.
It acts as a true fitness tracking! You can check the watch to see your data without stopping if you are doing push-ups. Apple needs to improve battery life to make it work longer.
The Noise app will warn you when you’re in a loud atmosphere and continued exposure to the sound could damage your hearing.
The Apple Watch and Watch OS 6 pairs well together with excellent performance and simple quick-to-learn user experience.
It’s also fun to use. You would love the haptic feedback, which is impressively tactile against your wrist or finger. It’s cohesive and smart.
Fitness Tracking App
The Apple Watch is the only fitness and health tracker you’ll ever need to have. It will track your steps, calories, hourly movement, VO2 Max data, relaxation, hours spent standing, and workout, like swimming and biking, and more unusual activities like yoga and elliptical training also.
Battery and performance
You can run this watch, when fully charged, a full day (about 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.) and then half the next day. You can recharge it in an hour, and a top-up mid-day would easily see it last for the remaining of the second day of use.
While you should charge a smartwatch every day, new features are putting extra pressure on the battery in Series 5.
Price and availability
Available on Apple’s online store, its retail stores, and partner locations also. The aluminium body will cost $400 for the 42mm and $430 for the 44mm, or $500 for the GPS + Cellular 42mm model and $530 for the 44mm version.
The stainless steel Apple Watch starts at $700, the titanium model from $800, the ceramic version from $1,300, and the Hermés version from $1,250.
