Apple Watch Series 5 Release Date

The Apple Watch Series 5 is expected to be released in the fall of 2019 alongside the 2019 iPhone. The Series 4 was announced on September 12th, 2018. It was released later that month. We expect the next Apple Watch to follow a similar pattern.

Apple Watch Series 5 Rumors

New hardware features are unknown at this time. It’s expected to ship with watchOS 6. Because the watch was redesigned with the Series 4, it’s expected to remain similar in overall design.

It’s possible that Apple will add additional Health focused features into the next version of its wearable device. We also expect Apple to continue rolling out the ECG feature in additional countries.

It’s also possible that LTE streaming for third-party devices might become a Series 5 feature if the restriction needs a larger battery. It’s also possible it comes to past watches with a software update, though.

New Software Features

While we’ve not heard rumors of what is coming in watchOS 6, 9to5Mac’s Zac Hall recently published a wish list¬†of features. Among them are sleep tracking, revisions to the workout app, enhancing to Activity sharing, and enhancements to watch faces.

Apple Watch Series 5 Pricing

No pricing is known at this time, but we expect pricing to remain similar to the Series 4. Pricing will likely start at $399 and go up for the 44mm size or stainless steel. LTE versions are expected to be available for users who want to data access (for services like Apple Music). Colors will likely remain similar to the previous model and existing bands will likely remain compatible with the new watch.
