The Apple Watch Series 5 brought a lot of improvements to the table, not the least of which is its always-on display. And for one day only, you can strap one on for less on Woot!, with the 40mm Rose Gold GPS model, for instance, down to just $334.99.
So, about that always-on display. On previous Apple Watch generations, the watch’s display would fall asleep when it wasn’t in use; to wake it up, you had to raise your arm or tap it. On the Series 5, it’s always at the ready for quicker access to your apps and messages. Plus, the Series 5 carries over the larger display and speedy S5 processor introduced in the Series 4 and carried over to the Apple Watch SE. This isn’t Apple’s absolute latest processor — that title goes to the S6 inside the Apple Watch Series 6. However, the S5’s got more than enough power to get the job done.
Of course, this watch is also running watchOS 6, which features a host of new apps like Cycle Tracking for menstrual cycle tracking, the Noise app for detecting harmful levels of noise around you and Activity Trends, which helps you keep track of your fitness and activity. After some time getting used to you, this app will suggest improvements and identify areas in which you’ve done well. Plus, with the introduction of an electrocardiogram, or ECG, you can accurately measure your heart rate.
Right now, you can pick up the Apple Watch Series 5 in several different models and colors over at Woot! with a limit of three per customer. Just note: These watches are Open Box, meaning customers returned them within 30 days of purchasing — and they will come with at least 60 days remaining of the original Apple warranty and will be packaged in their original Apple packaging and with the original accessories.
