Apple Watch Series 5 Faces

Apple unveiled the new Watch Series 5 at its iPhone 11 event earlier this month. One of the most notable features was the new always-on Retina Display. Prior to this, watch faces were only visible when tapped. Now, as the name suggests, they're always on. Here are all the watch faces available for the Series 5.
