The Titanium Always-On Apple Watch Series 5 Has A Built-In Compass

Category: Tech

Only a year ago, Apple unveiled their Series 4 watch — a game-changing smart device loaded with more, better features than ever. It was so advanced, in fact, we weren’t expecting to see another one for quite some time. But that didn’t stop the Cupertino-based brand from upgrading it so comprehensively that, less than 365-days later, they’ve unveiled the Apple Watch Series 5.

For the most part, the styling of this new generation is in line with the Series 4. But there are some big changes — including the option for an all-new titanium case alongside the previous stainless steel, aluminum, and ceramic options. But this new version now has the industry’s only always-on low-temperature polysilicone and oxide display (LTPO) Retina display that allows you to check the time without lifting your wrist or tapping the screen. But don’t worry, the brightness goes down when you’re not using it. It also comes with a suite of new apps, including upgraded navigation with a built-in compass (offering heading, incline, latitude, longitude, and current elevation), a decibel-tracking Noise app, Cycle Tracking, and more. It can even make emergency calls when you’re traveling internationally. And it manages all that while retaining an 18-hour all-day battery. It will be available on September 20th starting at $399.

Purchase: $399+
