      I bought the series 5, but I notice that the battery drains very fast. I restarted the watch, and finally I unlinked it from my iphone and set it up as a new Apple Watch from scratch and the problem still continues. If you can make a video solving this problem I will appreciate it.

      AppleInsider what model was that you used to review?

  • Elizabeth Stenhouse

    Is there a fast re charge up way for this watch?

  • Elizabeth Stenhouse

    Got watch 5 for falls and health. Disappointed how it unlinked itself from phone when battery power went low unexpectedly. Don’t know how to start it again. Have put back on charge up.

    I’ll stick with the series 4, this really isn’t worth the upgrade.

    I was considering buying an Apple Watch Series 5. But if these are the TOP 8 features, I don't see why I would buy one :s

    Finally the Apple Watch series 5 is out, which means that the series 4 will be cheaper. Now I can finally afford a used series 1

    This is my first Apple Watch, awesome I bought the aluminium space grey. I wanted it for the ECG but I believe it is not available in Australia yet. I just recently had a mini stroke and now have a pace maker put in. This little device is also handy if I have another fall. Good work Apple 🍎, I came across from Samsung.

  • Jerry Parks

    Very disappointed on what the series 5 does. I don’t think I will buy. May instead buy the series 4.

      It’s the “S” version of the 4 there’s no other way to explain it. Because as we could remember, all the S versions of iPhones do not come with the biggest upgrades, and that’s how I feel this Watch is this year

      Iñaki Campomanes yes I traded in my series 4 just for that feature alone

  • Victoria
    Victoria 24 days ago

    I'm incredibly disappointed about the lack of improvements to battery life and no addition of on board sleep tracking. I have the ORIGINAL apple watch and these have been my gripes since 2015. I really hoped for more in the 6th iteration of the watch....I know this means that these change MUST come in 2020 because how could they not? But my apple watch is completely obsolete and I don't know if I want to wait another year.

  • TheFemaleCritic
    TheFemaleCritic 25 days ago +1

    Unpopular opinion warning: I have the series 3 and wanted to upgrade once the 5 came out but there’s no point for me. I love the way series 5 looks but all the features I need, I have with my 3. I will still upgrade because like I said, I like the look, but I’m in no rush considering I have several bands and cases anyways. I feel like you’d be paying just to say you have one. Hell, if it weren’t for the crown, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. 😂

    Apple takes about 4-5 generations to get things just right. I think I’m gonna get this as my 1st Apple Watch.

      Ashley Giarratano how do you record voice on Watch5? I see your answer on how to mute the voice in an active call. Thanks

      Ashley Giarratano mute mic on watch ? Yes I know we can. But mute AirPods from watch ? Big no. Atleast not happening for me.

    • Ashley Giarratano
      Ashley Giarratano 16 days ago

      VS nat yes you can mute your mic on it and you can silence incoming calls on the watch and phone by placing your palm over the watch face. You can also record calls on your watch recorder while on your phone

    Got my Series 5 Stainless Steel model 2 days ago. I am a "light" user - as in hardly done any hands on activities, or heart rate check etc. yet in 12 hrs it has battery level of only 52%. My Series 3 Cellular would have about 70% left after an 18 hr day. Should I worry??? What are other people's actual real world experience?

  • Ray Gun

    Meh.. have the 4, and these 8 features do not warrant buying a new series.
    If they improve the watch face customization that allows us to put more complications on custom face, I would get a new series. Otherwise, series 4 is already good enough :)

      6806goats1 Month ago

      Yeah, wouldn’t be worth going from an S4 to a 5. Bought my refurb S2 in 2017 so I think I’ll get a 5, keep the 2 for the heck of it. Maybe my bro could use it.

    • Jason Kressen
      Jason Kressen 4 days ago

      The speed is relatively the same in my opinion and the always on screen was a cool upgrade but I wouldn't be happy if I paid full price. Got mine from sprint for 50%, I'm not disappointed for that price.

    • Z RapidFire
      Z RapidFire 20 days ago +1

      Same thing?? I think you’re just messing around.
      I just upgraded from a series 3.. and the difference is awesome!!
      I love the always on display! Plus that extra 2MM is fantastic, I’m sure the upcoming updates and firmware will bring even more features so I’m pretty excited about that!
      Keeping my iPhone XS along the side, until next years iPhone. 👏🏻💯

      Dávid Kristóf I got the Nike+ Apple Watch and October 7th is the scheduled release(?) date. I checked yesterday and the regular Apple Watch shows an estimate of oct 4th for my address (Alberta, Canada). I guess just keep checking the order progress 🤣 that’s what I’ve been doing even though I know it’s going to be around the 7th... (okay just checked rn and it says my watch is “preparing to ship”)

    • Dávid Kristóf
