It's not the big update that we say past year, but it is the most polished Apple Watch yet, with one feature users have been begging for since the very first model - an always-on display.

The company also launched the Apple Watch Series 5.
The Apple Watch Series 5 is available in multiple cases, Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Titanium, and Ceramic. It will be available to order from 10 September, starting at $399/£399 for the Global Positioning System only model and from $499/£499 for the Global Positioning System and Cellular model. You can order it today, and it will be available September 20. The GPS + Cellular model is limited the United States and 20 other countries and regions. Several advanced technologies work together to deliver this new feature, including the industry's only low-temperature polysilicone and oxide display (LTPO), ultra-low power display driver, efficient power management integrated circuit and new ambient light sensor.
For added personal safety while travelling, users with cellular models of Apple Watch Series 5 can now complete worldwide calls to emergency services, regardless of where the device was originally purchased or if the cellular plan has been activated.More news: Hailee Steinfeld Offered The MCU Role Of Kate Bishop In 'Hawkeye' Series
Apple says the watch faces and Workouts app have been specifically tuned for the always-on display. Regardless of where you buy the Apple Watch Series 5, as long as you're in one of the 150 countries that support this, the Watch can call emergency services even without a mobile plan active.
The most exciting day of the year for Apple fans is finally here. The Maps app will integrate the compass to show the correct facing direction as well. That said, Apple's special event today isn't an iPhone-only affair. If you'd like built-in cellular connectivity, you can expect to pay $459 for the 32GB iPad or $559 for the 128GB flavor.More news: FDA Warns Juul About Illegal Marketing Claims
