The Apple Watch has, of course, been around for years and seen several updates. It’s the latest updates, however, that have truly made the newest watches standout.
From always-on displays to GPS navigation, Apple Watch has become more than a companion gadget to the iPhone; it’s become a stand-alone device that is hard to live without.
In addition to all the great features Apple Watch has always had, Series 4 introduced a slimmer body (yet with a screen that is somehow bigger), has optional cellular for making phone calls and streaming music without your phone, and drop detection (so if you fall and can’t get up, the fire department is dispatched to your location). Everything about it was designed to motivate you to be more active.
Series 5 has taken it a step further by adding one of the most asked for features: an always-on display. Something, it should be noted, it does without sacrificing battery.
As amazing as all the new features are, it’s not quite as easy to use as an iPhone; the lack of buttons, the smaller screen, and general UI can make a frustrating initial experience. The point of this book is to help new Apple Watch users (and users updating to WatchOS 6 from an older device) get the most out of their investment.
