Update, Sept. 18: Read our full rated.
Apple on Tuesday unveiled its new from the Steve Jobs Theater at its Apple Park headquarters in Cupertino, California. The new watch features an always-on display and internal compass, and they'll be available in titanium and ceramic bodies. Cellular models now have international emergency calling built in, too.
To save power, screens on previous generations of the Apple Watch automatically turned off after a few seconds or when you dropped your wrist. Most of the performance improvements to the Apple Watch Series 5, however, focused on energy efficiency, allowing for an always-on display that merely dims when you're not looking at it. Raising your wrist or tapping the screen will return the display to full brightness.
Apple also announced a new way of choosing which watch and watchband combination best fits your style, called the Apple Watch Studio Experience. Previously, watches were sold with preselected bands. Now when you buy an Apple Watch, either online or in-store, you can mix and match to suit your personal taste.
