Apple Watch Series 5 has been replaced by Apple Watch Series 6.
This is my second Apple watch and I am generally a fan. However, some "functions" simply do NOT function. The heart-rate monitor is so random as to be basically unusable. I've often checked it against reliable monitors and it's is very often not even close. the latest "fix", to allow my watch to open my MacBook, is not a fix at all. So while I generally enjoy the product, several of its "functions" are very random AND THIS IS ANNOYING.
Purchased in March 2019 for $599.00.
its ok for me
I am not a watch person but got this as a gift. it looks good to wear one, stylish. I don't always wear it. most of the time i wanted to wear I found it no charge. so i put it on charge for next time. Battery life not good. other than that, very handy options, like heart rate monitor which is pretty good. So far I like the product. But I wont give it a 5 star.

Sapphire glass prone to scratches.
The S5 Apple Watch is comfortable and easy to use, and the black stainless steel is very attractive. The glass is no where near as durable and scratch resistant as Apple claim, with mine showing several scratches despite not knowing as to how they happened as I’m always very cautious.

First Apple Watch Experience- Honest review
I bought the new series 5S watch a week ago but it does not meet expectation of what I was told it can do. It’s like “sheep” dressed up in wolves clothing.
Before purchasing, I spent a good number of hours talking to various staff at the store including the Apple Gurus who were in the store supporting Apple sales.
My initial choice was the top line Garmin which I saw as a “wolf”
The Key functions and performance expectations I wanted were, very accurate GPS for off-road maps, battery life, accuracy of Health Monitoring, robust, and ECG func...tion. After much deliberation and having taken on the advice of the Apple Gurus who said all these functions are the best money can buy, I went with the Apple 5S non cellular for $699.00- as it had the added feature of ECG over the Garmin, so I thought.
Purchased in September 2019 at JB Hi-Fi for $699.00.
Questions & Answers
i am looking for a stand alone watch. i don't have a mobile phone and want a watch with which i can make and receive phone calls - oh and tell the time. does apple sell such a product in australia?
Apple doesn’t sell such a product anywhere. If you want to use an Apple Warch, you need to have an iPhone. Apple Watches won’t suit your use case, sorry.
I am using my second Apple Watch after upgrading early this year. The watch does almost all that it claims very well - but does NOT give an accurate heart rate, contrary to its claim. That aside, it’s a wonderfully flexible watch. It is able to make and receive phone calls if you don’t mind others nearby hearing your conversation. However for the phone function to operate you need to purchase the slightly more expensive watch with a ‘chip’ insert. Hope this assists.
