Apple Introduces Apple Watch Series 5 With 'Always On' Retina Display

APPLE HAS REVEALED the Apple Watch Series 5, a smartwatch that comes with an always-on display, and - wait for it - a frickin' compass for all you wannabe Bear Grylls types. But on the plus side, that is with Always-On display turned on. And all-day battery life.

Here's all the important info. The added benefit of that always-on display? Yes, it's finally here.

For added personal safety while travelling, users with cellular models of Apple Watch Series 5 can now complete worldwide calls to emergency services, regardless of where the device was originally purchased or if the cellular plan has been activated. What this display would do is switch from 60Hz to 1Hz dynamically according to the display and what is being displayed on the device.

This type of technology allows for power saving.

In addition to an always-on display and compass, the Apple Watch Series 5 offers a second-generation optical heart sensor, fall detection, and a Digital Crown with haptic feedback. It runs on watchOS 6 which empowers to take charge of their health and fitness with new features like Cycle Tracking, the Noise app and Activity Trends. It would be kind of pointless introducing it considering most people will still opt to recharge their device during the night.

Apple announced a new Apple Research app during Tuesday's "By Innovation Only" event that will pair with the Apple Watch and the iPhone to crowdsource health data for future research.

Emergency calling has been expanded to over 150 countries.

Last year, Apple slightly increased the size of the Apple Watch - from 38mm and 42mm to 40mm and 44mm. The GPS+Cellular variant, on the other hand, now costs Rs 29,900.

Today, in a live-streamed keynote address from their headquarters in Cupertino, CA, Apple unveiled the newest version of their ever popular Apple Watch.

Other notable features of the new iPad include an 8MP rear camera, 1.2MP FaceTime HD front cam, stereo speakers, nano-SIM and eSIM support, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Many users report that they get longer than the estimated 18-hour battery life, but that's wholly dependent on how often you use Global Positioning System, and other power-guzzling apps and features.
