From phone calls, to texts, to emergency assistance around the world, Apple Watch Series 5 with cellular lets you leave your phone behind and still stay connected. And with the Always-On Retina display, your important information stays front and center.
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.
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.
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.
With the Audio books 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.
