Apple Watch Series 5 Launched with Always on Display; Starting at $399

The Apple Watch Series 5 is official with an Always-On display; priced from RM1,749

It would seem that this would significantly decrease battery life. The Series 5 has an LTPO (Low-Temperature Polycrystalline Oxid) display driver, which can adjust its resolution and refresh rate on the fly to be much more energy-efficient than the previous models. The Watch has the same 18 hour battery life, Apple said. Both provide a 30 percent larger display compared to the Apple Watch Series 3, Apple says.

Surprisingly, the Series 5 doesn't natively support sleep tracking-a feature that was widely rumored to be coming to the new model-so that's not something to consider when choosing a model. 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. Alongside, Apple also unveiled the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, and a new 10.2-inch iPad.

Apple has introduced the newest product in its series of smart watches, offering a familiar design with notable software upgrades. Also, the compass will be open to third-party apps as well so developers can incorporate it into other experiences as well. The new positioning chip can provide heading information as well as latitude, longitude and current elevation. The stainless steel watch will be available in gold, space black, and polish colours. Previously, emergency calling was only available in the US.

The three new studies will target additional potential uses for the Apple Watch as a health device, joining the company's existing research related to its wearable and heart health. It can manually initiate an emergency call or be set it up to call automatically in the event of a hard fall where the user remains motionless for about a minute. There is a new app to track menstrual cycles for women to monitor their fertility. The app will allow anyone to enrol and will roll out in the United States later this year.

The company, criticised in recent years for the high costs of its premium iPhones, also revealed the new iPhone 11, which will replace the cheaper iPhone XR.

Apple's latest watch, the Series 5, will sport a new look thanks to an always-on display.

Apple Watch Series 5 GPS starts at $399 and the Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS + Cellular) starts at $499. Meanwhile, if you want a deal, the Series 3 will be discounted to $319 for Global Positioning System and $469 for TE.
