Moving forward, Apple talks about the new Apple Watch Series 5. This is the first Apple Watch to ever have… Wait for it… always-on display. How it works is it dims the screen when the user’s wrist is down, and return to full brightness when the watch face is tapped or raised.
When the watch is dimmed, you can see the time and select info and notifications. All this is made possible by combining new LTPO display hardware, new ambient light sensor, and a deep integration with WatchOS software.
The cellular models of the Apple Watch Series 5 now also has improved emergency services features, such as making international calls to emergency services, regardless of where the device was purchased or if the cellular plan has been activated.
The Apple Watch Series 5 now comes in a wider range of materials, including 100% recycled aluminum (base model), stainless steel, ceramic, and an all-new titanium. It is available for pre-order starting today, with first orders arriving on the 20th of September.
Prices start at $399 for the aluminum model, and can go up to $1,400 for the ceramic edition of the Apple Watch Series 5.
