Apple introduces watchOS 5, with more ways than ever to stay active and connected
05 June, 2018, 19:14
Here's a sentence I didn't think I'd write: my favorite new Apple Watch feature is one that turns the wearable into a (slightly higher tech) walkie-talkie. In fact, those first watches was the exact time when Apple was testing the grounds with super premium gold watches that cost up to $17,000!
Apple has added competition to the watch's activity-sharing feature to make it even more social. The somewhat overlooked social networking aspect of the platform is being bolstered with competitions between friends, and you get notifications on your progress every step of the 7-day challenges. (This was a specific complaint we had in our Apple Watch Series 2 review - forget to hit "start" and your entire workout was lost, no data recorded.) The watch will also stop tracking a run when it senses that you're done running.
On the exercise front, watchOS 5 introduces two new workout types, Yoga and Hiking. Outdoor running can now track your rolling mile pace, and will alert you if you're falling behind your desired pace.
While on a run, a new cadence metric will be shown while indoors and outdoors.

With Walkie-Talkie, users will be introduced to an entirely new way to communicate with voice and just with a tap of the wrist. This new watch-to-watch connection mode works over both Wi-Fi and cellular. With this Apple TV will detect the user's broadband network and automatically signs them in to all the supported apps they receive through their subscription. WatchOS 5 has many more new features added behind the scenes and same interesting ones coming soon, as well.
The Siri watch face, which shows contemporaneous information, is getting much better in watchOS 5.
Watch notifications, which were once simple alerts relayed from your iPhone, will become significantly more useful in watchOS 5, especially in third-party apps.
Unlike the original iPhone, the first Apple Watch came with third-party apps from the start. Apple is partnering with a handful of universities, including Duke, Johns Hopkins and Temple University, to roll out that integration this fall.
