Always On Retina Display
Apple Watch’s brand new display allows for your watch’s home screen to stay visible at all times, but dimming when the user’s wrist is down. In turn, when the watch is raised or tapped on, the screen will brighten once more. Worried about battery life slowing down? Don’t be. Apple worked hard to optimize the new display and still deliver an 18 hour battery life.
Navigating from your Apple Watch just got a whole lot easier. This Series 5 watch includes a built-in compass and updated Maps app, so that you can see exactly where you are going and facing. See heading, incline, latitude, longitude, and elevation with ease.
International Emergency Calling
Thanks to Apple innovation, your watch will become beneficial to you while traveling. Even if you have not purchased an international data plan, or you are not in the country where your device was purchased, you may place an emergency call. Bonus feature: if your watch has detected you have fallen, it will automatically place an emergency call for you if you have not responded in a period of one minute.
Health and fitness mesh well with the brand new Apple Watch, as new features make it easier than ever to log important information, including tracking feminine health. The new Cycle tracking app gives customers predicted timing for their next period and fertile windows, all from the convenience of your Apple Watch. The brand new Noise app helps you understand sound levels in loud environments like concerts and sporting events. The Activity trends feature provides a long-term view to your activity patterns. On top of all of this, you’re able to try new watch faces including Meridian, Modular Compact, and Solar Dial.
