More about the Apple Watch Series 5: Compass interference, extra wristband on Edition Edition…

O Apple Watch Series 5 it was announced almost a week ago at Ma's last special event and will hit stores next Friday.

We have detailed here on his site all his changes from the Series 4 and we have also done an article focused on the advantages and disadvantages of the new titanium model, but there are still other little details that deserve to be highlighted.

Interference with the compass

A new component within the Apple Watch Series 5 is the compass, which primarily enhances the use of maps by the watch but will also be beneficial for augmented reality apps, for example.

A Reddit user noted, however, that certain Apple bracelets contain hands that may interfere with the operation of the compass (not unique to Apple Watch, of course), and the company reports this in moist letters on the corresponding pages.

Among the “affected” bracelets are the milan style bracelets, the leather ones and the modern clasp. Good to keep that in mind, therefore.

Extra bracelet on Edition models

Perhaps in connection with the above "problem", Apple has decided to include in the boxes of the new Edition models (titanium or ceramic, as well as the Herms special line) an extra sporty bracelet in addition to the one chosen by the customer.

The color of the extra bracelet always matches the main one, as shown in the example above.

Apple Watch Series 5 in AR

Like the iPhone 11, the Apple Watch Series 5 is also available to anyone who wants to play augmented reality on the Apple website.

Just access this link using Safari on iPhone / iPad and have fun. 😊

New dial for everyone

It's a nice surprise: the new dial Meridian (Meridian), demonstrated on the Apple Watch Series 5 release keynote, was added by the company on the back Golden master (GM) watchOS 6 also for Series 4 users.

Likewise, new Nike + dials that come with the Series 5 will also be released for fourth generation Nike + Apple Watch owners.

So bo! 😃
