Apple Watch Series 5 GPS Only – Specs Review

Design

The next generation smartwatch of Apple is here, the Apple Watch series 5 smartwatch. The smartwatch is available in 40 mm version and 44 mm version. The weight depends on the material and the hardware of the device. You have the option to choose aluminium, titanium, stainless steel or ceramic material. When it comes to design and looks, it is pretty similar to Apple watch series 4, in fact it is hard to distinguish the series to series 5 by looking at it.

Display

Still, the Apple watch series 5 is packed with a beautiful screen. The display is an LTPO OLED display (1000 nits), clear, crisp, sharp text and graphics with touch screen method of operation. But I think the main improvement  on the display is the “ Always On Display” feature. No need to flip your wrist to display the information, you can already check the time without jarring movements. Which makes it a desirable feature and I think should have been implemented on the Apple Watch series 4. The display is protected by a iOn-X tempered glass or the premium option Sapphire crystal glass.

Under the Hood

The wearable is loaded with S5 with 64 bit dual core processor and runs the Watch OS 6.It is packed with different sensors such as optical heart rate sensor, barometric altimeter, electrical heart rate sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope, ambient light sensor

It is also has a huge storage space, 32 GB allowing you to load it with variety of apps. It also has a built-in compass, GPS/GNSS, NFC w3 Apple wireless chip. It has a good hardware making it operate flawlessly and runs variety of apps.

Features

We know that the wearable has an HR monitor, another feature that take care of your heart is the ECG feature. New noise app alerts that protects your hearing. It is also loaded with heart and sport features with advance metrics for intense workout. Track your progress and challenge yourself with goals. Download tons of apps from the app store and enjoy a healthy life and fit body. Another feature that you can use before to personalize your watch before you order is the Apple Watch Studio, choose a case and pair any band to suit your taste.

Battery

Still, there is little improvement or none at all on the battery, according to Apple, it has the same all day 18 hour battery life, the same with previous models.
