The Series 5 includes 32 GB storage, up from 16 GB from previous models. The Series 5 will be preloaded with watchOS 6.
There are several new features that are upgraded and improved in this new series. Some of them are as follows.
As we experienced in previous watches we should move our hand to see the time. But in apple watch 5 it consists of an always-on display, so we don’t have to move our hand always just to see the time. It does not show just the time, it displays weather information, your messages and work out details. This always-on display goes dim when inactive. The display’s ambient light sensor can detect how bright your environment is and adjust itself.
2. Compass and maps are improved
Apple Watch 5 got its own compass built-in and is also using it in its own Maps app to enable a feature that shows you which direction you’re facing. Well, there is good news to developers too. Apple is opening the Compass API to third-party apps.
3. Battery life improved
Previous watch 4 used to have 18 hr battery life. So even with always-on display apple watch 5 can last up to 18 hrs and according to news developers are trying to improve that in WatchOS 6.1.
This special feature is for ladies. The watch 5 now can track your periods time with great accuracy of the prediction of next periods date. You can also add details about ovulation test results, cervical mucus quality and basal body temperature in the iPhone Health app, and allow Cycle Tracking to predict your fertile window if you want to use the app to plan or prevent pregnancy.
