Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS) is available to order in 41 countries and regions and Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS + Cellular) is available to order in 22 countries and regions.

As far as the Apple Watch hardware, Apple hasn't changed much outside of two new case options: titanium and ceramic.

It comes in silver, gold, and space grey, with a 100 percent recycled aluminium casing.

The new Apple Watch Series 5 supports an always-on display that lets you glance at the time and your complications without having to raise your wrist or tap the display to wake it.

Nike models cost £399 and Hermes versions start from £1,249 for those of you with more money than sense. Also new is an International Emergency Calling feature, letting users place an emergency call in a foreign country.

More interesting is Apple's decision to keep the Apple Watch Series 3 in its line-up.

Global Positioning System is not a novelty of Apple Watch, but, a dedicated compass hasnt really been a thing up until now. Apple is also providing third-party apps with access to the Compass for a better experience.

The popular Series 3 (GPS) model will remain on sale, with a new low price starting from $199 ($299 for the GPS + Cellular model).

Without doubt the headline feature is the new always-on display. Both models will be available in stores beginning Friday, September 20. Just like with India, the Apple Watch Series 3 price in the USA has also been dropped, with the GPS model starting at $199 (roughly Rs. 14,300) and the GPS + Cellular model starting at $299 (roughly Rs. 21,500). If you haven't worn an Apple Watch before, it's easy to dismiss the Series 4 as being identical to its predecessor, save for the larger screen. Apple hasn't revealed a specific availability date for its latest smartwatch.

During its keynote today, Apple detailed its ongoing research related to the Apple Watch, including the device's ability to help users detect the presence of a condition called AFib.

After 400,000 people participated in Apple's heart study, the company will conduct new research for hearing, women's health, and heart and movement.
