Apple Watch Series 5 review: the best smartwatch

  • Жарияланды 2019 ж. 18 Қыр.
  • 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.

    Useless video, ever try simplifying a video! You’re not Apple, you don’t need to discuss the specs of an Apple Watch. What can you do with it exactly? What Do you use it for exactly?! no worries you’re not alone all the videos on KZclip are useless when it comes to Apple products because it’s just a bunch of posers discussing their Apple purchases without ever using them.

    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

    The only question I’ve had about the series 5 is if the message notification in the green bubble changes to 1 if you receive a message while the watch is in 1hz mode. (Not referring to the red dot) I’ve been searching everywhere and can’t find the answer. Anyone with the series 5, if you can test it and let me know please and thank you!!

    Come on Dieter, haven't you seen Samsung Galaxy Watch with brighter always-on screen with a longer battery-life and a ton of free watch faces for every taste.
    And yes, Galaxy Watch is also fast (snappy).

      @Dylan I agree with you regarding Wear OS. However, Galaxy Watch runs Tizen OS (not Wear OS). 🙂

    • Dylan
      Dylan 12 күн бұрын +2

      WearOS just isn't good though. It's a lot of endless scrolling in menus. Nobody is really trying on the android side. It's more like a notification center on the wrist rathe than something leading toward a fully capable self sufficient OS which watchOS is close to. They're just sticking to what is out and hoping that is enough to sell. Fitbit and cheaper smartwatch models are honestly better options now over most android wear currently.

    Perhaps one of you can help me. Is the screen the same across all models of the series 5? The Apple website mentions that the back is sapphire, but I see no mention of the front.

    I saw other reviews said in terms of the phone call quality and the speaker quality, Apple Watch Series 5 cannot compete with Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2, which is a lot cheaper.

    • Dylan
      Dylan 12 күн бұрын

      It can though simply because of first party capabilities and having more of a full fledge OS on it vs just a lot of menus.

    What my issue is, that mostly every upgrade on this watch is something made possible by a software update, apart from the larger screen and a few other small, very small, details, all these updates where and should be possible by software updates

    • Dylan
      Dylan 12 күн бұрын

      I'd disagree, screen and battery updates are what make features run more smoothly. While they could put always on, on the series 4 or 3 it's not designed with that in mind.

    I am an avid viewer for verges Reviews simply because the reviewers are not technical or superlative tech persons which kinda give realistic consumer approached.. However , I am highly displeased with incorrect facts that are stated and the highly rigged biasness that is labeled on product..its a review, not a personal impression. So you dont say stuff like "it's the best product ever" or "nothing beats this product " . Your are expected to relay Facts and statistics thats what review consist of ...
