Following the completely redesigned Apple Watch Series 4 last year, there was not much buzz about what Apple plans to continue in 2019, but Apple has been quietly straining for something new: the highly updated  Apple Watch Series 5. Previously updated, Series 5 arrives Back in smaller sizes (40 mm) and larger (44 mm), but with a series of packaging and inner disk.

The tentpole feature is an always-on display that is capable of maintaining all-day battery life for 18 hours with a transition from brightness to full brightness as needed. Apple says all aspects of watchOS 6 and its applications have been updated to support the new feature, allowing people to steal a glance. Although Apple Watches always included partially viable OLED displays for long periods, behind-the-scenes power consumption necessary to achieve this – with full access to notifications and sensors – would have killed small appliance batteries.

One of the tricks is the duplicate screen refresh rate that can go down to less than one refresh per second to conserve power. Others have been found in new chipsets, including a processor on an Apple-designed S5 chip system that has not been discussed in any way – it features “up to 2x faster” speeds than the second generation of the S3, along with the latter’s W3 wireless chip With 802.11n (Wi-Fi 4) support and Bluetooth 5.0 support. This year, there is also a built-in compass to improve the use of Maps independently of the iPhone, including a new Compass app, and 32GB of storage, higher than the 16GB version of the Series 4.

In addition to previous aluminum and steel models, Apple also offers two fairly new materials for Series 5: Titanium and Ceramics. The Apple Watch Hermès, a variant with precious leather straps, will now be available in second body color – black stainless steel – with new stripe options, while Apple Watch Nike + will have its new ranges and at least one watch interface.

Apple has previously used titanium in metal PowerBooks that were soon replaced by aluminum due to titanium exposure to paintbrushes. Although it is unclear whether the Apple Watch will be more flexible over time, the standard version is unpainted gray titanium with a “special surface layer that prevents the appearance of yellow, stains and fingerprints”, while the black version uses a carbon layer similar to that In stainless steel model.

Ceramics first appeared as a more affordable alternative but still expensive for the Apple Watch Edition Gold version, sold for $ 1,299 and above in glossy white and gray models before disappearing in Series 4. The new ceramics are only glossy white, Especially with the white, black, and red digital crown.

The Apple Watch Series 5 will be available at prices starting at $ 399, with a $ 100 bonus for GPS + Cellular models. Stainless steel models will be sold at a premium of $ 300 over aluminum, especially including cellular capabilities for $ 699 and higher prices. Both the titanium and ceramic versions are marketed under the nickname “version” that was previously dedicated to Apple watches made of ceramic and gold, with the price of titanium starting at $ 799 and ceramics at $ 1,299 for smaller versions of 40 mm.

All with watchOS 6, announced in June, will specifically ship the Apple Apple App Store standalone for direct downloads and a software update feature that can run from Watch instead of a companion iPhone app. WatchOS 6 also includes a decibel scale to measure ambient noise, a calculator with limb splitting, menstrual cycle tracking, and a voice memo recorder, among a host of other enhancements to integrated applications. Premium GPS + Cellular Apple Watch Series 5 models have received upgraded international emergency calls that can automatically call local emergency services based on user location.

New watches will arrive in stores on September 20. Visitors to Apple retail stores will be able to choose “Studio” to customize the look of the watch with a band of their choice. Each hour continues to include one band for the asking price.

Since the Series 5 is very similar to the Series 4, Apple will stop the model last year while retaining the fifth series of the 2017 2017 model as an option for beginners, for $ 199 now. Stepping down means dropping screen size and processor performance with loss of ECG functionality.
