Apple Watch Series 5 launched with always-on screen

Apple on Tuesday launched Apple Watch Series 5, debuting an "Always-On Retina" display, several new health features and worldwide emergency calling that allows customers to call emergency services directly from Apple Watch in over 150 countries, even without an iPhone nearby.

Meanwhile, the new iPad (7th Gen.) has been upgraded to a 10.2-inch 2160×1620 display, up from the 9.7-inch screen on the iPad (6th Gen.) model. Version 5 of the wearable features an always-on display, doing away with the need to lift the watch in order to take a glance at the time, and any notifications.

There are also new Nike and Hermés models, with new bands, case finishes, and watch faces.

There should be something for everyone, and the new designs allow for a truly personal experience.

Apple will keep selling the Series 3 watch, which will now start at $199.

Turkey accuses US of stalling on Syria 'safe zone' plans
Turkish troops return after a joint US-Turkey patrol in northern Syria near the Turkish town of Akcakale on September 8, 2019. The minister's comments came as two US military officials were visiting Turkey for talks on what Ankara calls "safe zone".

The key here is that the screen will never go to sleep, so you'll always be able to see what time it is and what your daily stats are. It's very useful for situations where twisting your wrist would be rude, awkward, or impossible. However, Apple has developed an "ultra-low-power" display driver and more efficient power management software to compensate.

The new Apple Watch Series 5 will start at $399 or $499 with the 4G version shipping on 20 September. With Apple Watch Series 5, you can use the new Compass app to see the heading, incline, latitude, longitude, and current elevation.

This can be accessed through a new Compass app, watch face complication, as well as in apps (such as Apple Maps, or Night Sky).

The feature is just one of several Apple Watch updates the company revealed on Tuesday at a closely watched press event. For regular people you will also be happy to hear that the LTE models will have free emergency calling without having to be linked to an iPhone.

The new phone will cost from €1,179, while the Max version will start at €1,279, with the devices becoming available from September 20th.
