Apple Watch Series 5: the first video hands-on!

Apple has just officially announced the next generation of the Apple Watch, the Apple Watch Series 5. The last model is very similar to the 4 series last year, with a design and dimensions similar.

The big news this year is the display is always-on so you can see the time without having to move the wrist, something that has been required since the Apple Watch has debuted for the first time in 2015.

The screen is always active, the more options for the houses

Apple is late with the display always-on Apple Watch Series 5. The smartwatch Wear OS of Google have this feature for years, and in fact it has been a great lack on the previous Apple Watch. But it finally arrived and elevates the smartwatch Apple.

Switch from the main screen to a display that is always active is simple, and is still easy to see the time in this new mode. It is not necessary to raise your wrist or tap the screen each time you want to see something on the watch, that is the time or the data of fitness.

The screen always active does not mean a life worse than the battery. Apple says that we will find the same battery life of 18 hours on the 5 Series. Apple could, perhaps, have been able to go a step further and greatly improve the battery life on the new model, as it has done with its latest iPhone.

A large part of how Apple is able to maintain the life of the battery despite having a screen that is always active and it is thanks to the display LTPO, which switches the screen refresh rate from 60Hz to 1Hz, allowing for less absorption of energy.

The dials and the workouts have been redesigned to take advantage of the new display option. The screen will be in a mode of low brightness until you move the wrist, where you will go to full brightness in a way similar to how you turn on the current model when you turn the wrist.

Here are some video hands-on:
