Apple has just officially announced the next generation of the Apple Watch, the Apple Watch Series 5.

The latest model is very similar to last year’s Series 4, with a similar design and size.

The big new feature this year is an always-on display option so you can see the time without having to move your wrist, something that has been asked for since the Apple Watch first debuted in 2015.

Apple says the Series 5 watch maintains the prior model’s 18-hour battery life, even with the new always-on screen, thanks to a new low-temperature polysilicone and oxide display and low-power display driver.

In addition to the new always-on display feature, the Apple Watch Series 5 is now available in a recycled aluminum or titanium finishes.

Apple says this is the widest number of finishes ever for the Apple Watch.

Apple is also permanently dropping the price of the Series 3 to $199, matching the lowest sale price on that model we’ve seen. »
