A premium Apple Watch at a reduced price

Aesthetically, the Apple Watch Series 5 offers beautiful finishes and comes in the brand’s iconic rectangular format. Its aluminum case (44mm) incorporates the famous digital crown as well as an — almost — edge-to-edge screen for real reading comfort. This OLED panel offers the practical Always-On Display feature. It allows you to constantly leave the screen on. But this very energy-intensive technology impacts the autonomy, which counts on 18 hours only. However, we console ourselves with its wireless charging compatibility.

Offering a smooth and complete experience

On the performance side, the Apple Watch Series 5 has some nice remains. It has the same chip found on the SE model currently: Apple S5. It delivers an always fluid user experience, in particular thanks to the presence of a well-controlled and thought-out OS. It also runs on WatchOS 8. The interface brings some new features, such as added activities, detection of start-up and fall in activity, Concentration mode, wallpaper in portrait mode, the meditation app Mindfulness, etc.

There are still a whole bunch of sensors to track user activity. Whether cycling, interval training, cardio, walking, running, yoga, dancing, rowing, badminton, basketball, Pilates, in the water (water resistant up to 50 m) or on land, this watch will follow you in all your activities. There are many parameters related to health. She can, for example, call the nearest hospital if the watch detects an anomaly, which is very useful for people who are fragile or at risk.
