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.

Rather than going black when not active, as has been the case since the first Apple Watch, the Watch now dims slightly, allowing you to conserve battery, but still see the information on the screen.

So there's that, and of course, a built-in compass, which Apple for some reason never had in the Apple Watch series despite the iPhone having had a compass for ages.

Apple Watch Series 5 GPS starts at $399 and the Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS + Cellular) starts at $499. Unlike the Apple Watch Series 4, the new Apple Watch Series 5 is a minor update with no changes to the overall design of the hardware. New models from Nike and Hermès will also be available.

APPLE HAS REVEALED the Apple Watch Series 5, a smartwatch that comes with an always-on display, and - wait for it - a frickin' compass for all you wannabe Bear Grylls types. In addition to its slightly larger 10.2-inch retina display, features like the Smart Connector make the new tablet compatible with the full-size Smart Keyboard once relegated to the iPad Pro. 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.

Apple today wrapped up its September event today with a few words about its new retail initiatives, including a trade-in program that should help users transition to the new iPhone 11. Also new is an International Emergency Calling feature, letting users place an emergency call in a foreign country. Combine that with a new, more sensitive ambient light sensor and Apple's 'software power management, and there you have it.

With so many big advances in 2018, the Apple Watch Series 5 looks to hone and refine the experience. The watch can be pre-ordered starting today itself, and will go on sale starting September 20. Apart from unveiling it on a global stage, Apple has also announced the Apple Watch 5 India prices.

Apple's newest Watch, the Series 5, builds on last year's model with an always-on display, compass, and different materials.

Starting later this year, Apple Watch owners will be able to enroll to participate in these studies, when applicable, through the new Apple Research app. The 44mm display has a resolution of 368x448 pixels, while the 40mm display has a resolution of 324x394 pixels.

Nearly from the beginning, Apple Watch has been focused on health and fitness, and that continues with new Activity Trends, which gives users an overview of their workout progress over time.
