    I just got the Apple Watch #5 and I’m not so sure about it. I workout daily, and it dies faster than my Apple Watch #2 did. But I’m gonna give it a chance because I love the size and all the new options and features that it has. Plus it looks a lot sleeker than the #2 watch.

    I’m loving my Space Black stainless steel series 4 but that space black titanium is calling my name. My only concern is the durability of the metal.

    There are times when you just can't turn your wrist? what times are they? to look at any watch you have to turn or raise your wrist, tell Apple you guy's are not very good at selling this thing.

    • Andru Edwards
      Andru Edwards  Month ago +1

      Have you ever been working out cycling while holding the handlebars and try to glance down at your watch? My Apple Watch shows nothing.
      Have you tried looking at your watch when you feel a notification tap while carrying groceries which stop you from doing the full smooth wrist raise motion? Try it sometime. Apple Watch won’t light up.
      Every been doing push-ups or holding a plank and glance at your Apple Watch? It doesn’t light up just because you glance at it.
      How about instead of being a troll, actually try to think about the answers to simple questions like the one you asked. It’s not hard.

    Do the edition models have sapphire cristal?

    Is there really a difference between the 40mm or 44mm? Getting my first one in a couple weeks

    • 1994Mattg
      1994Mattg Month ago

      Other than the size, no. But depending on your wrist size, you should defiantly get the one that fits more comfortably. The bigger 44mm isn't better if you have a smaller wrist.

    Can the on display mode be disengaged? There may be situations or locations (ny subways at night)when I would rather not be seen wearing a $400 watch

  • Lacey Riles
    Lacey Riles Month ago

    Based on weight, and durability/easily scratched, and pricing, which casing do you think is the best option from your POV? I’m really interested in the ceramic but it’s pretty costly and I don’t know how heavy or light it may be or how likely it is to be scratched up and chipped over a year

    • Andru Edwards
      Andru Edwards  Month ago

      The ceramic is VERY durable. Don’t expect scratches or chips. Aluminum and titanium will be your lightest options, stainless steel is heaviest. I think ceramic is nicest, titanium is second-nicest and a lot less expensive.

    Hey Andru how did your Stainless steel series 4 hold up in terms of scratches on the body?

    • Andru Edwards
      Andru Edwards  Month ago

      Actually really well. There’s some small light scratches if you hold it up to the light, which I’m positive can polished out!

  • Chemy Torres
    Chemy Torres Month ago +1

    It's a category of gadgets I like but I can't justify the price, not only the apple watch but any over $100 smartwatch, but somehow I feel this is the future, a watch, some earbuds, maybe smart glasses and done, no computer or phone.
    Nice video, nice improvements for the watch too, liked as always man

    Can you turn the (always on) option off or will this one always be on

    • Apple Exposed
      Apple Exposed Month ago

      @Brandon Chavez

    • The Game Belt
      The Game Belt Month ago

      Yes, in the watch settings you can turn always on display off.

    • Brandon Chavez
      Brandon Chavez Month ago

      Paul Toledo true and I do agree but I do like the slick look of my watch being all black as well

    • Paul Toledo
      Paul Toledo Month ago +1

      Brandon Chavez Most likely but there wouldn’t be a point because when it darkens it goes into a power saving mode and has an 18 hour battery life which is longer than the other stuff

  • Scrivener Writer
    Scrivener Writer Month ago +2

    It's very rude to raise your wrist to look at the watch if you are in a meeting and someone is holding forth and you desperately need to get to a plane or another meeting. So your concern was well placed and it is shared by many. Thanks - great review.

      The few times I have slept with my watch I used Theater Mode. Keeps the screen off unless tapped.

    STEVE WESKER Month ago +11

    I do hope when the watch is on charge that the screen stays on, almost like a bedside clock.

    rawlins jones Month ago +3

    I never had a Apple Watch because of the screen not always on, so now I’m officially upgrading to the series 5 ceramic 44mm, I’ve waited all this time why not go all the way. By the way is that two different orange bands your wearing in the video? What style bands are they?

  • MacAutomationTips
    MacAutomationTips Month ago +2

    I'll be honest, I always wanted an always-on display for aesthetic reasons. With the totally black screen the watch lost its character when my arm wasn't raised to view the display.
    I wanted to choose my watch faces to match what I was wearing, but since the display turned black, it kinda didn't matter.
    I don't want to fork over more money for the AW5, only having had the 4 for less than a year, but maybe I'll take advantage of the trade-in deal ($100 for the 4) and get the aluminum 5. While the black titanium probably looks great, $700+ is a lot, especially if Apple keeps trying to roll out a new version of AW every year.

    • Apple Exposed
      Apple Exposed Month ago

      The black is Apple-like and iconic though. I guess you could still use the blank face when wearing black.

    • Nesarika

      I actually like looked into the Apple Trade-In programme for example for the iPhone 11 my iPhone XS, was purchased like 3 months ago for €1149, Apple is ready to give me €340, and I just don’t get it. It’s way better to sell it on EBay

      1-2 days if you don't use it aggressively. Could go longer if you disable the always on display
