Apple launches Watch Series 5 with always-on display

Apple Watch Series 5 smartwatch launched along with new iPad Apple launches Watch Series 5 with always-on display

After Apple got a load of tedious smile-at-the-sun types to harp on about how the Apple Watch saved their lives, an Apple bloke - we forgot his name because he had so little to really say - revealed the new Apple Watch. Apple also unveiled the latest generation of its A13 Bionic chip, which it said boosts the performance of the device even more. There have been other tweaks, such as a new display driver to ensure the Apple Watch Series 5 doesn't glug down electrical juice.

As expected Apple announced the iPhone 11, which includes a new wide lens camera and the highest quality video camera ever found in an iPhone.

The new iPad is available to order starting now and in stores starting September 30. Pricing starts at $399 for the 40mm Global Positioning System variant while the LTE variant starts at $499. The Watch changes are more muted than a year ago, when Apple added redesigned cases, larger screens, faster processors, and an EKG sensor with the Series 4 line. The stainless steel cases will be available in gold, silver and space black while the aluminum option comes in silver, gold and space gray. The GPS+Cellular variant, on the other hand, now costs Rs 29,900.

Apple has announced the new Apple Watch Series 5, featuring a new always-on retina display.

When I raised my wrist, the watch face brightened.

A wrist raise or tap brings the display back to full brightness but you'll always be able to see the display and Apple claims the battery life won't be affected thanks to new technology and optimised watch faces.

The company also provided an update on its Apple arcade gaming subscription service which will become available from September 19 in 150 countries around the world. The workout app has also been tweaked to continuously show stats and exercise data.

The Apple Watch Series 5 will also come with compass, which users can add to their home screen as well.

The Apple Watch 5 has improved the safety features in the watch with fall detection, emergency SOS, and Medical ID. Also new is an International Emergency Calling feature, letting users place an emergency call in a foreign country.

During the event, Apple trumpeted the health studies it's helping with by partnering with research institutes and hospitals for heart, hearing, and women's health (including menstrual cycles) health.
