Apple Watch 5 features:
Since its launch five years back, the Apple Watch has grown up to become much more than just an iPhone accessory. It now dominates the global wearable industry. Tonight, Apple announced the Watch Series 5, which comes with an Always On display for the first time ever.
The new Watch 5 flaunts what Apple calls an LTPO (Low Temperature Polysilicone and Oxide) Retina Display. This can essentially vary the display’s refresh rate, so that if there’s no need to update the screen, it doesn’t, thus saving power. It’ll still dim the screen when your wrist isn’t raised, but now it’s possible to check the time without people noticing.
Another new feature is an onboard Compass. This will now tell users the directions as well as incline, longitude and latitude. The new smartwatch will also display these stats on the home screen as one of three Compass-based complications.
Apple Watch 5 Specifications:
The Apple Watch Series 5 will be available in two sizes of cases – 44mm and 40mm – and features a ceramic and sapphire crystal back finish. Both are 10.7mm thick, and feature a digital crown with haptic feedback. It is powered by Apple’s new 64-bit dual-core S5 processor, said to be up to 2 times faster than the S3 processor. The W3 wireless chip provides connectivity. There is 32GB of storage on the smartwatch.
The speaker on the smartwatch is 50 percent louder than that of the Apple Watch Series 3, Apple claims. As for the important battery life statistic, Apple says the Apple Watch Series 5 delivers up to 18 hours of battery life – which means you still need to charge it at the end of the day. The Apple Watch Series 5 case has been built using 100 percent recycled aluminium.
