Apple Unveils Apple Watch Series 5 With an Always-On Display

Using Low-Temperature Polysilicone and Oxide (LPTO) display tech, an ultra-low power display driver, and a new ambient light sensor, the Apple Watch Series 5 can always show your time and complications, or your workout if you're exercising.

A major novelty for the Series 5 is Apple Watch Studio.

Apple Watch Series 5 GPS starts at $399 and the Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS + Cellular) starts at $499.

In addition to the Always On display, the Apple Watch Series 5 has a built-in compass that allows users to see elevation and incline data, and there is a new safety feature too. Pre-orders for all models begin today and Watches will start arriving in stores on September 20. The added benefit of that always-on display?

Apple Watch Nike is available to order today, September 10 from apple.com and in the Apple Store app, with availability beginning Friday, October 4 in the US, Puerto Rico and more than 51 other countries and regions. Updates in technology will keep the battery life at 18 hours.

The new Apple Watch Series 5 looks exactly like its predecessor, the Series 4. Apple also said it would be dropping the price of its Series 3 watches to $199 and $299 for GPS and GPS+Cellular respectively. The existing emergency calling feature is going worldwide too, and will be supported in 150 countries for extra peace of mind. Anyone who wants to participate in the research study may do so through the Apple Research app - the company was quick to point out it won't have access to any of the users' information.

The most exciting day of the year for Apple fans is finally here. The new iPad also comes with a faster Apple A10 Fusion processor and support for the Smart Keyboard accessory for the first time. While it's possible these will be released later, there was no reference to them made at today's press event. If you'd prefer a more premium finish, the titanium Apple Watch Series 5 starts at $799, while the top-end ceramic version starts at $1,299.
