Apple launches Watch Series 5 with always-on display

If you're looking for a sportier look, Apple has brought back the Apple Watch Nike variant, while there is also a Hermès edition that retails in Singapore for SGD1,749 (about Rm5,296).

"The new iPad packs even more value into our most popular and affordable iPad model featuring a bigger 10.2-inch Retina display, support for Apple Pencil and for the first time, the full-size Smart Keyboard", said Greg Joswiak, Apple's Vice President of Product Marketing. This feature makes it stand out compared to all previous generations of Apple Watch models, and lets users see the smartwatch display even without lifting their wrists. The firm has also added the option for titanium and ceramic cases.

The other major new feature of the Apple Watch Series 5 is its built-in compass. Inside, the new iPad has the A10 Fusion chip, which is just a bit less powerful than the A10X Fusion in the iPad Pros. While their displays have generally been bright and clear, they're only active when you tilt your wrist and wake them up. If you'd like built-in cellular connectivity, you can expect to pay $459 for the 32GB iPad or $559 for the 128GB flavor. The watch again comes in 44mm and 42mm sizes, with options for 4G connected versions, and Apple's ECG heart monitor.

Series 5 will also come with a slew of location and safety features, including a built-in compass that can be added to the face, a fall detector, and global emergency calling for cellular models, which will work without an iPhone nearby. This feature will only be available for pricier cellular-enabled versions, however. These include the next-generation iPad, and the latest Apple Watch Series 5.
