Apple Watch Series 5 was the fifth generation of this versatile Apple wearable to be issued since its inception. As is now customary, the new models of Apple Watch were announced during the annual Apple product launch event, this time in September 2019. Among a series of enhancements and updates to the previous version (Apple Watch Series 4) were an ‘Always-on’ Retina display, complete with Force Touch functionality. This OLED display, which was available in the same two sizes as the Series 4 (40 and 44 mm), was notable for having energy-saving features, which aimed to help extend battery life. These features included a low-powered screen driver, which gave the Watch a very low refresh rate (even going down to once per second under certain conditions). The battery life of the Series 5 was also preserved by the inclusion of the latest Apple S5 processor – the most power-efficient processor fitted into a Watch to date.
Apple Watch Series 5 was particularly notable for having a whole 32 GB of storage, twice the storage capacity of any previous Watch models. It also boasted several brand-new features, including International Emergency Calling covering more than 150 countries, a magnetometer which enabled it to act as a compass, and an advanced ambient sensor. From a visual appearance point of view, Apple Watch Series 5 saw the re-introduction of the ‘Edition’ models, to accompany the Hermes and Nike+ ranges. Among the Edition models was the previously-seen ceramic bodies Watch, plus a new titanium version in both white and space black. With the usual choice of bands and loops in different colours and materials, Apple Watch Series 5 continued to combine practicality as an accurate timepiece, plus useful health and fitness tracker, with being a versatile, customisable and handsome fashion item to wear on the wrist.
