Apple’s next smartwatch won’t appear until at least September 2019, alongside the new iPhones, but that hasn’t stopped rumours appearing about it.
Here’s everything we’ve heard so far about the Apple Watch Series 5, coupled with what we want and expect to see.
Apple Watch Series 5 release date
Apple typically holds its iPhone launch event in September of every year and the next iteration of the Watch is normally announced at the same time.
This launch event normally takes place in the second week of September on a Tuesday. We’ve therefore been placing our money on 10 September 2019 for a while, which is also the date that has now appeared in rumors following some a couple of images from the iOS 13 beta, though we expect nothing to be confirmed officially until later this month – August 2019.
Apple Watch Series 5 Rumors
New hardware features are unknown at this time. It’s expected to ship with watchOS 6. Because the watch was redesigned with the Series 4, it’s expected to remain similar in the overall design.
It’s possible that Apple will add additional Health-focused features into the next version of its wearable device. We also expect Apple to continue rolling out the ECG feature in additional countries.
It’s also possible that LTE streaming for third-party devices might become a Series 5 feature if the restriction needs a larger battery. It’s also possible it comes to past watches with a software update, though.
New Software Features
While we’ve not heard rumors of what is coming in watchOS 6, 9to5Mac’s Zac Hall recently published a wishlist of features. Among them are sleep tracking, revisions to the workout app, enhancing to Activity sharing, and enhancements to watch faces.

Apple Watch Series 5 Pricing
No pricing is known at this time, but we expect pricing to remain similar to Series 4. Pricing will likely start at $399 and go up for the 44mm size or stainless steel. LTE versions are expected to be available for users who want to data access (for services like Apple Music). Colors will likely remain similar to the previous model and existing bands will likely remain compatible with the new watch.
