Apple Watch Series 5 has a display that’s always on, showing the time and important information—no need to raise your wrist. It helps you navigate with the built-in compass. Tracks your workouts and activity. And makes it easy to connect with the people and information you care about, right from your wrist.
With a display that is now always on, Apple Watch Series 5 is there for you like never before. Faces and complications let you see the information that matters most to you without raising your wrist. Cases are available in a range of materials engineered by Apple, including 100% recycled aluminum and, for the first time, titanium. Match with any band you please, and create a combination that is perfectly personalized, just for you.
You no longer need to raise your wrist or touch the screen to see the time or other information on your watch face, because the display never sleeps. So whether riding a bike, cranking out some crunches, or counting the minutes in a meeting, all you need to do is glance to find the time or your workout metrics right there where you want them.
To remain on all day with all-day battery life, hardware and software have to work in harmony. The display dims when your wrist is down, yet key features, like watch hands, remain visible at all times. Touching the face or raising your wrist brings everything back to full brilliance.
Any face can be personalized by selecting apps or shortcuts to features — what we call complications — that let you see more at a glance and do more with a touch. There are hundreds to tap into, and some faces, such as Infograph, can accommodate up to nine.
Apple Watch packs surprising capabilities into a footprint so small it’s more like a fingerprint. Tucked below the deceptively simple surface are many massive feats of engineering.
All around, Apple Watch inspires a healthier life. It monitors your heart rate and lets you know if something is wrong. Helps you keep track of your menstrual cycle and taps you if noise levels rise to a point that could impact your hearing. You can also add complications like Breathe, Heart Rate, and Noise to your watch face and keep them top of mind throughout your day. It’s the first watch that really watches out for you.
With the ECG app, Apple Watch Series 5 is capable of generating an ECG similar to a single-lead electrocardiogram. It’s a momentous achievement for a wearable device that can provide critical data for doctors and peace of mind for you.
Electrodes built into the Digital Crown and the back crystal work together with the ECG app to read your heart’s electrical signals. Simply touch the Digital Crown to generate an ECG waveform in just 30 seconds. The ECG app can indicate whether your heart rhythm shows signs of atrial fibrillation — a serious form of irregular heart rhythm — or sinus rhythm, which means your heart is beating in a normal pattern.
Unusually high or low heart rates and irregular heart rhythms (known as arrhythmias) could be signs of a serious condition. But many people don’t recognize the symptoms, so the underlying causes often go undiagnosed. With notifications in the Heart Rate app, Apple Watch Series 5 can check your heart and alert you to these irregularities — so you can take action and consult your doctor.
The Cycle Tracking App gives you insight into your menstrual cycle and can help provide a clearer picture of your overall health. In addition to simply ensuring that you’re prepared, you’ll have more information to help you track irregularities and symptoms and enrich discussions with your doctor.
Taking moments throughout the day to stop, relax, and practice mindfulness can help reduce stress and improve overall health. The Breathe app keeps you centered by leading you through a series of calming breaths. It’s also available as a watch face, so you can bring focus to your day just by raising your wrist.
With the redesigned Health app on iPhone, it’s easier than ever to access the information that matters most to you. Now you can see automatically generated highlights of how your health data is trending over time.
Apple Watch Series 5 can detect that you’ve fallen. When an incident like this occurs, a hard fall alert is delivered, and you can easily initiate a call to emergency services or dismiss the alert. If you’re unresponsive after 60 seconds, the emergency call will be placed automatically. Your emergency contacts will then be notified and sent your location.
Now you can complete a call to emergency services almost anywhere in the world. Just press and hold the side button on Apple Watch Series 5 with cellular and you’ll be connected with the help you need. It even works if you’re nowhere near your iPhone.
Whether you’re an elite athlete or you just want to track your daily activity, Apple Watch Series 5 helps you train smarter to get results faster. Now with a display that’s always on, your metrics are always visible, so you never have to stop and raise your wrist to see how you’re doing. And with 50 million songs to stream from Apple Music, you’ve got all the motivation you need to keep moving.
Cycling, yoga, swimming, high-intensity interval training. You name it, Apple Watch measures it. Set workout-specific goals, see full summaries when you’re done, and track how you’re trending over time in the Activity app on your iPhone. Apple Watch even works for wheelchair users, with two specific wheelchair workouts.
The Workout app has been optimized for the new display. Whether you’re holding a pose, riding a bike, or swimming some laps, your metrics are always visible, every agonizing second. You’re welcome.
Water resistant to 50 meters, Apple Watch Series 5 is designed with swimmers in mind. The Pool Swim workout automatically records splits and sets and can actually recognize your stroke. The Open Water Swim workout visualizes your route on a map. And both precisely track active calories, distance, and overall pace.
Apple Watch Series 5 is made to take even the most advanced runner further. Pace alerts give you a gentle tap on the wrist to let you know if you’re behind or ahead of where you want to be. Cadence lets you see your steps per minute and helps you refine your running technique. And rolling pace constantly updates, allowing you to see your split for the preceding mile at any time.
Now, in addition to counting flights of stairs and providing elevation gain in an outdoor workout, Apple Watch Series 5 gives you your current elevation. So whether you’re climbing a hill or descending into a canyon, you know just how high or low you really are.
With just a tap, you can pair your watch with compatible gym equipment. So you can keep important metrics like heart rate, speed, and calories in sync between your watch and the treadmill, stair climber, or stationary bike you’re on.
From phone calls, to texts, to emergency assistance around the world, Apple Watch Series 5 with cellular lets you leave your phone behind and still stay connected. And now that the display is always on, your important information stays front and center.
Apple Watch Series 5 has a built-in compass, so now you can navigate directly from your watch face. The updated Maps app now shows the direction you’re facing. And the new Compass app displays your heading along with elevation, latitude, longitude, and incline. Scouts everywhere, rejoice.
Working with the built-in compass, the Maps app is even more powerful. In addition to showing your geographic position, it now indicates which direction you’re facing. When you’re using turn-by-turn directions, a gentle tap on the wrist lets you stay on track without having to look at your watch. Which means even if you can’t hear the beeps and chimes, you can be sure you’re going the right direction.
Hear a song you like? Just raise your wrist and ask what it is. Siri and Shazam will help you discover the latest tunes. Have an important question about, well, anything? Now Siri can also search the web and show you the top results. With cellular, you can do it all without your phone.
