The company is also lowering the cost of the Watch Series 3 to $199.

Apple announced a new Apple Watch Series 5 on Tuesday during the company's annual September event at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California. Previously, emergency calling was only available in the US. The new Watch also will add a compass sensor for improved directions in maps and a new compass app.

And it's true. The Series 5 is a lovely smartwatch, particularly the fresh titanium and throwback ceramic finishes, and the new always-on display gives you even more to look at. We've already got a full rundown of the new iPhone 11, but here's everything else Apple announced including the new iPad, Apple Watch, and more.

The Apple Watch Series 5 features an always-on OLED display with a number of advanced sensors that still maintains an impressive 18-hours of battery life.

As a final bit of good news, O'Brien said the Apple store on 5th avenue would be reopened. But how? Well, this is possible through multiple technologies that work together in tandem. The Series 5 has an LTPO (Low-Temperature Polycrystalline Oxid) display driver, which can adjust its resolution and refresh rate on the fly to be much more energy-efficient than the previous models. One of the highlights in the new Apple Watch is the Always On Retina display.

Apple hasn't been shy about the Apple Watch's use for monitoring your health and fitness.

The three new studies are relatively self-explanatory, focusing on how daily sound exposure may impact one's long-term hearing health, whether tracking menstrual cycle data can be useful for screening for health conditions like osteoporosis, and whether movement metrics from the watch are useful for gauging overall health.

The new high-end phone, available in four different colours, is the first from Apple to feature a triple main camera, although other manufacturers' smartphones already include this feature.

Series 5 has expanded on its predecessor's capability to detect falls and call emergency services.

In the United States, 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). Even the screen looks the same, but it turns out the Series 5's display is its most exciting feature. The Series 5 has the same measurements as the Series 4, but it adds an always-on display mode.

The Panthers have a quick turnaround to make, as they face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday night at Bank of America Stadium. If Gurley and the Rams continue to pick his spots, Gurley's stats could suffer, but the Rams should be in pretty good shape.
