Description

The Apple Watch Series 5 (40mm) is a high-end fitness-focused smartwatch with a remarkable design, equipped with lots of features, and has about 18hrs long battery life. It’s available in two sizes; 44mm and 40mm, each of these two are available in GPS only and cellular models. It succeeds the Watch 4 which has now been discontinued.

Watch 5 has an outstanding compact design, very slim at 10.7mm, and lightweight too. It’s available in four materials; stainless steel, aluminum, ceramics, and titanium. The last two are premium materials and will cost you more money. It has a wide 1.78 inches display for the 44mm and 1.57 inches for the 40mm that’s always-on and very bright and colorful to watch with touch support alongside the remarkable rotating crown button and one other physical button that makes navigation very easy. The Watch 5 is available in white color, space-gray, gold and black

You can now access your favorite apps directly from the Watch 5, this allows you to simply install apps you like from the watch. The 32GB storage capacity makes it ideal for storing your favorite tracks on the watch and as well stream from popular services such as Spotify.

The GPS model allows you to make and receive calls directly from the Watch 5 connected to your phone, while the cellular models allow you to make and receive calls directly from the watch independent of your phone.

The Watch 5 is also a comprehensive fitness tracker, perhaps one of the best fitness trackers on the market that can help you reach more fitness goals. It’s equipped with a handful of sensors and apps that enables it to monitor your daily activities such as the activity minutes that reminds you to move, stand or exercise, ECG tracker that allows you to track your heart rhythm instantly, menstrual cycle tracking, a compass for orientation, inbuilt GPS for outdoor activity tracking and maps. It will also track your heart rate, calories, VO2 Max, floors, sleep (via third-party apps), and more.

This watch will tell the time, notify you when you receive a notification on your phone, and there’s also Siri voice assistant that can help you perform a handful of tasks simply with your voice. Apple Pay is also available, a feature that allows you to make payment directly from the Watch 5.

The battery life of the Watch isn’t anything to write home about, but great improvement, especially with always-on display feature. However, you can expect about 18 hours long battery life from this device with light usage.
