    Is the always on display enough to justify the upgrade for you?

    hmm, so given I use a Galaxy Note 10+, I guess its a no go then, the SOS is what I was interested in.

    I never had an Apple Watch before, but now I bought this one because it has what I have been waiting for (A.O.D., ECG/EKG, fall detection etc.) I'm very excited about AW 5 as a brand new customer, it's really amazing.

    Soon these watches will replace phones and instead of having a phone people will have a tablet (or a foldable tablet) for things that require more screen

    Did you try the watch in direct sunlight at a certain angle? The always on display flickers and gets really dark... please check that

    So does your phone basically become useless if you get an Apple Watch? I’ve never had one.

    You don’t know why they don’t have a watch face store? You can’t even guess? It’s design, they want complete control over how the device looks, including the front of it..

    Hi. Can you confirm how much music storage capacity for Apple Watch 5? The previous models have 2GB of storage capacity.

    To me it’s like a whole new ballgame for the Apple Watch. Ive got the series 4 stainless and having the display always on is night and day for me. I have already ordered my series 5 still waiting for it to ship :/
