Apple Announces New 10.2-inch iPad, Apple Watch Series 5, and More

11 September 2019

Series 5 models will start at $399 for the Global Positioning System version, and $499 for the Global Positioning System + cellular model, and are available for order immediately.

Apple sold 43m Apple Watches over the last two years, according to data from IDC, accounting for almost 50% of the global smartwatch market. The current design has arguably been polished to perfection, so the Series 5 doesn't have many surprises in this regard, but the feature set gives ample room for expansion, and that's where Apple's new smartwatch delivers in spades! It still promises an 18-hour battery life.

The new Apple Watch also has a built-in compass, so you can always know which way you're facing. For the first time, Apple will officially stream the launch event on YouTube, so, all smartphone users will be able to watch the launch of the 2019 iPhones live. The company adds that the Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS), has now received a price cut, and starts at Rs. 20,900, while the Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) is now priced at Rs. 29,900. A new gold stainless steel version will also be released.

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. New models from Nike and Hermès will also be available. The device comes in green, space gray, silver and gold.

Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS) starts at Rs. 40,900, while the Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS + Cellular) starts at Rs. 49,900.

The new Apple Watch Series 5 supports an always-on display that lets you glance at the time and your complications without having to raise your wrist or tap the display to wake it. Add to that a plethora of new band colors and styles, and I have no difficulty believing there are 1,000 unique Apple Watches to be made.

Workout metrics get an Always-On mode as well, meaning they can remain visible on your watch face even while it is in its low-power state. The workout app has also been tweaked to continuously show stats and exercise data.

Building further on the emergency calling feature which debuted on the Apple Watch Series 4 a year ago, Apple is adding worldwide emergency calling to the Series 5 but it is limited to the cellular variant only.

The Apple Watch 5 has improved the safety features in the watch with fall detection, emergency SOS, and Medical ID.

Apple has teamed with a number of academic institutions and organizations for these new studies, including Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, the National Institutes of Health, the University of Michigan, World Health Organization, and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. The new Noise app helps users understand the ambient sound levels in loud environments such as concerts and sporting events that could negatively impact hearing, and Activity Trends on iPhone provides a long-term view of their activity patterns to help them understand their progress.
