Apple Watch Series 5 review: the best smartwatch

Apple’s new Watch Series 5 starts out so far ahead of the competition that Apple didn’t need to do much. But it did one big thing: add an always-on display. In this review Dieter Bohn gets into all the new features of Apple’s latest smartwatch.

  1. ok so i’m thinking of getting the series 5 and this will be my first apple watch. why should i get it? like what REALLY the point of it?

  2. I got a 4 series about 5 months ago… i wish i bought myself a classy watch instead and a separate FitBit. Loooooads of apps are not compatible including whatsapp etc. Even if mine is cellular as well, u cant send or receive messages if you dont have the phone close by. You can make calls but you wont find any contact in the contact directory unless you have the phone near by. Waste of money honestly. Sure, if u have spare cash and dont mind wasting it is absolutely lovely watch…thats all it is.. a watch ✌️i doubt 5 is worth anything more

  3. Hey,
    I asked for a apple watch for Christmas and I've been wanting forever, in the month of my birthday, my mom bought me a Fitbit, so that was her excuse for not buying it for me, this morning my stepdad came in my room and said tomorrow we will shop for a wristband for moms apple watch I gasped, to be honest, my mom never really wanted one as much as me, she said it was a waste of money, I even asked for a phone, they said for my birthday, I mean I don't wanna be like a spoiled brat but now I have to live the pain of me seeing my mom wear something that I wanted forever and she didn't even care about having.

  4. Thank you for video, it was so helpful for me I was in hesitation to buy Apple Watch ⌚️ series 5 or Garmin, so it is one huge + to Apple 🍏

  5. It does all the functions of a smart phone and required to be charged daily just like a smartphone…so my question is what's the point of buying it ??…basically the whole of smartwatch thing is a marketing gimmick…..what's the point of carrying two smartphones ???

  6. I am using the oldest iwatch and I don’t need to even move my wrist to look at the time like he said. I have face detection on it.

  7. Apple watch series 5. Best smartwatch money can buy. Too bad if you're an endurance athlete, Suunto, Polar, Garmin and even Coros rule. There's a reason why the Apple watch is non existent in the world of triathlon or pretty much any endurance sport. Where's the damn lap button that I can press even without looking.

  8. The best features are still the iPhone pinging function so that you can find your iPhone in your house when it's lost, the walk-talkie function, and the fact that I can count laps with it when I'm swimming. That's it.

  9. Your sentence with the full potential nailed it
    right now its not where it should be they are wrist computers yes but not reliable ones yet!
    When they come up with batteries who can last much more and drive the price down so many more can afford them these things will be awesome

  10. I know that we used to hunt wild animals, throw spears etc.; but to actually have to put my Apple watch on the charger next to where I sleep every day? Omg, not sure if I can handle that kind of daily strain.

  11. Must agree, if you use iphone Apple Watch as a "Smartwatch" is the best.

    Can´t beat my Garmins for training but on the other hand Garmin only wins on training and battery ..:)
    If Apple just could make one extra BIG 52-58mm with big battery it would be sweet..will never happen tho. 🙂

  12. Sorry to disagree, but I would go as far as to argue that the Garmin Fenix 6 is the most advanced smart watch out there (and I wish to be proven wrong, but not by an apple absolutist). Technologically advanced = what the watch can do for you, irrespective of means (CPU etc).
