Apple Watch Series 5

Who is getting one? The key highlight is the always on display to make it finally look like a real watch.

Not much improvement lei. The always on display will drain battery very fast?

Not sure if want to buy as only always on display, compass and new S5/W3 chip are the main differences to the Series 4, so only subtle upgrades.

You can do that since cellular models were introduced in the Series 3.

Indeed. If old one on discount, maybe apple watch 4 is a good buy

Coming from an Apple Watch series 3 user. This is a good upgrade for me. Just preordered mine! Collecting on the 20th September at the orchard Apple store.

Little or no impact as they are using a special display to support this feature.

On their official store, they will be dropping Apple Watch 4, keeping only Watch 3. But I believe some retail stores may still carry them.

Wow. Thatís fast. Which one did you order? I probably get end of the year.

Will you still be keeping your watch 3?
