Easy Ways to Connect
The freedom of cellular.
Built-in cellular lets you go with just your watch. Field a call from the office, text a thumbs-up to a buddy, check your email — Apple Watch Series 5 keeps you connected, even without your phone.1
Always On. Always on it.
With the innovative Always-On Retina display, your watch face is always visible. No more having to raise your wrist to see the time or your important information.
The App Store. Right on your wrist.
With the App Store on Apple Watch, you can discover and download new apps while barely lifting a finger. Browse curated collections. Search using Scribble or Dictation, or enlist the help of Siri. Tap an app and scroll to read a description, check out screenshots, and see reviews. And install it more conveniently than ever.
Find your way in the world.
Apple Watch Series 5 has a built-in compass, so you can navigate directly from your watch face. The Maps app shows the direction you’re facing. And the Compass app displays your heading along with elevation, latitude, longitude, and incline. Scouts everywhere, rejoice.
Start off on the right foot.
Working with the built-in compass, the Maps app is even more powerful. In addition to showing your geographic position, it indicates which direction you’re facing. When you’re using turn-by-turn directions, a gentle tap on the wrist lets you stay on track without having to look at your watch. Which means even if you can’t hear the beeps and chimes, you can be sure you’re going the right direction.
International emergency calling.
You can complete a call to emergency services when traveling abroad. Just press and hold the side button on Apple Watch Series 5 with cellular and you’ll be connected with the help you need. It even works if you’re nowhere near your iPhone.2
With the Audiobooks app, Apple Books titles in your Reading Now list are automatically synced to your watch. Apple Watch also makes it easy to stream all your favorite episodes from Apple Podcasts, an album or playlist from Apple Music,3 or live radio from stations around the world,4 right to your wrist.
Just double-click the side button and hold your watch to the checkout reader to use Apple Pay. You can also send or receive Apple Cash with the Messages app. No matter how you use it, Apple Pay keeps your financial information completely private and secure.
Your voice has never been so commanding.
Hear a song you like? Just raise your wrist and ask what it is. Siri and Shazam will help you discover the latest tunes. Have an important question about, well, anything? Siri can also search the web and show you the top results. With cellular, you can do it all without your phone.
