Design

The Apple Watch Series 5 is visually unchanged compared to the Series 4. It comes in either a 44mm case size or a slightly smaller 40mm for those who have slimmer wrists. The case is still a svelte 10.7mm, and the 44mm model which weighs only 36 grams. It’s barely noticeable on your wrist, never gets caught under a shirt cuff, and the curvy case is wonderfully ergonomic.

Apple Watch Series 5

It comes in an elongated box that’s an occasion to open, with the case wrapped in a soft protective bag. The strap is separate, and if you get the Sport Band version, it even has medium and long size options in the box. The case is delicate but durable, and even the aluminum model feels exceptionally high quality.

The Always on Feature in the Apple Watch Series 5

The Series 5 for Apple Watch doesn’t only show you what time it is. When it is inactive, the display shows you a dimmer version of all the information on your watch face.

Always On Feature

It is usually to use the Info-graph Modular watch face, which has six complications along with the time, so I have access to my most-used apps (Workout and Messages) as well as bits of information like the weather and battery percentage. You can still see all of that when the display dims. 

Fitness and health tracking

Health and Fitness Tracking

The Apple Watch is the only fitness and health tracker you’ll ever need to wear. It takes care of steps, calories, hourly movement, relaxation, VO2 Max data, hours spent standing, and workout tracking for everything including swimming and biking, and more unusual activities like yoga and elliptical training.

Battery and Performance

The always-on screen in Series 5 does not ruin the battery life. It’s possible to get a full day out of a single charge. Re-charging will take about an hour, and a top-up mid-day would easily see it last for the remainder of the second day of use.

Battery Life

Personal use will vary, and expected battery life will decrease if you use the call features on a cellular Apple Watch, or an extended period of fitness tracking with GPS and heart rate monitoring. This is also the case with the smaller 40mm Apple Watch.

Pricing

The aluminum body costs about $400 for the 42 mm and about $430 for the 44 mm, or $500 for the GPS + Cellular 42 mm model and $530 for the 44 mm version. The stainless-steel Apple Watch starts at $700, the titanium model starts at $800, the ceramic from $1,300, and the Hermès version from $1,250.

Pricing

It is not sure how much the Series 5 will cost in Nepal, since it hasn’t been launched in Nepal (as of 19th November, 2019). But the pricing for this Apple watch will fall around Rs. 45,000 – Rs. 50,000 in Nepal.

Apple also provides a one-year warranty against manufacturing defects but offers AppleCare+ for a coverage plan, but this will still cost $50 for two years.
