The Apple Watch keeps going from strength to strength and with it being in its fifth iteration already, there’s no sign that its popularity is going to wane any time soon.
If you’re looking at adding this exciting piece of tech to your already expanding collection, you might be really excited to learn that Apple has gone one step further in creating a watch that is not just smart, but one step ahead of the game at all times.
One of the more exciting features on the watch for those who might be elderly or having special needs is the fact that the Apple Watch Series 5 now comes with a few life saving features, including an ECG, which monitors your heart rates, and fall detection, which enables the watch to alert someone to a fall in the event you can’t.
Which Sizes Can I Choose From?
You can choose from two different sizes when it comes to the Series 5 watch – 40mm and 44mm. The option you choose will depend on the size of your wrist, as well as your own preferences.
The design of the watch is pretty sleek, with a digital crown, touchscreen display and a very similar overall design to the Series 4. This means, if you liked the old design, you’ll still find this one appealing.
What Materials Can I Choose From?
When you’re selecting the materials from which your Apple Watch Series 5 has been manufactured, you’ll be able to select from among more materials than ever before, including aluminium, titanium, stainless steel and even ceramic. This ensures that you get to choose a watch that not only suits your personal style, but also your lifestyle.
How Can I Personalize my Apple Watch?
You can personalize the watch in a few different ways, including by choosing the material from which it is manufactured and the colors with which it is finished off. The titanium watch, for example, can be bought into black and silver, while the ceramic is available in white.
What is the Nike Series Watch?
Both Nike and Hermes are creating special editions of the series 5 watch, allowing these brands to style the face and straps to their liking. These special editions are really adding a touch of elegance to the overall design of the series, but of course you should be expecting to pay for the privilege of owning one of these.
What is the Screen Functionality Like?
The overall screen itself is larger, making it easier to see the information displayed, but that’s not all – the functionality itself has been improved. For one thing, you’ll have an always-on display, which is something that Apple watch users have been looking for, for a long time.
When the watch isn’t active, it will dim, allowing you to see the time just as you would an analogue watch. Keep in mind that if you want to keep things such as your appointments private, you’ll likely want to consider turning off the always-on functionality, which you can do with this watch.
How Long is the Battery Life?
The overall life of the battery will depend greatly on how you are using the watch, including which features you choose to activate. Generally, the watch should last for about a day before it needs to be recharged.
What is the Apple Compass?
The compass feature is now being offered with the Apple Watch Series 5 and it allows you to not only position yourself on a run or walk, but also to see your incline. This is because the compass app actually records inclines, longitudes and latitudes, as well as elevation.
What are the Specs Like?
When it comes to the Series 5 specs, you can expect a lot of what you got with the Series 4, including the same battery, processor and W1 chip. It is through this chip that you’ll be able to connect your Beats PowerBeats and AirPods, so don’t forget it at home.
Can I Make and Receive Calls?
Yes, with the Apple Watch Series 5, you can still make and receive calls, just as you did with the Series 4. You’ll not only have this feature, but you’ll also be able to make use of the Walkie-Talkie mode.
