Apple Watch 5 release date, price, news and rumors

So, where does Apple's wristwear go from here?

Apple sold 43m Apple Watches over the last two years, according to data from IDC, accounting for almost 50% of the global smartwatch market.

The Series 5 doesn't come cheap, though, so many of our readers are probably wondering, "should I jump the gun, or go for one of the older models instead?"

The new iPhones aren't the only things Apple is launching today. However, the 4th gen Apple Watch is noticeably rounder and sleeker than its predecessor.

It adds, "Classic styles like the stainless steel case in Gold, Silver, and Space Black remain, while the aluminium case in Silver, Gold, and Space Gray is now made for the first time from 100 percent recycled 7000 series aluminium".

In the USA, the Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS) starts at $399 (roughly Rs. 28,700) and Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS + Cellular) starts at $499 (roughly Rs. 38,900). The Apple Watch Series 5's biggest highlight is its always-on display Retina display, using an LTPO OLED display panel.

Ankara considers the fighters terrorists, claiming they are joined to a Kurdish insurgency within just Turkey's borders. The U.S. and Syrian Kurdish forces refer to it as a "stability system".


Apple says that even with the always-on display, the Apple Watch Series 5 offers 18-hour battery life. But how? Well, this is possible through multiple technologies that work together in tandem.

Featuring the powerful A10 Fusion chip, the new seventh-generation iPad brings up to two times faster performance over the top-selling Windows PC4 for powerful multitasking and smooth gameplay in Apple Arcade.

Apple has teamed with a number of academic institutions and organizations for these new studies, including Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, the National Institutes of Health, the University of Michigan, World Health Organization, and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. This year's upgrades include an always-on display, a built-in compass, and yet more case choices.

Series 5 has expanded on its predecessor's capability to detect falls and call emergency services. Of course, you can always get similar functionality by installing a third-party app, but that's a different story.

Apple surprised viewers at its Apple Event on Tuesday with the release not of a fancier Apple Watch Series 4, but a whole new Apple Watch Series 5.

The new Apple Watch Hermès and new Apple Watch bands are also available online today and coming to stores on September 20. Apple's new display even manages its refresh rate in accordance so no unnecessary battery is wasted on display refresh cycles.
