A great Smart Watch


I have had the Apple Watch S5 for about 2 months now, and it has been amazing. The always on display is very useful, however I have noticed that the watches battery can drain pretty quickly, especially when doing a workout. This is the first ever Apple Watch I have bought and it is amazing all the brilliant features that can fit into such a small device. As always, Apple's attention to detail, even in the packaging has really created a seamless experience for the user. I have not used it in water, however it would be useful to track swimming workouts.

Would definitely recommend to someone who wants to get back into shape, or needs to become more organised.

Purchased in October 2019 at JB Hi-Fi for $649.00.

This just became a new way of life!


My wife bought this for me as a gift for Christmas and within days this just became the most useful thing in my life. The watch itself is so informative and being connected to your phone, it just gives you a lot of functions that doesn’t require you to bring out your phone. Charging it isn’t as bad as everyone says because the 18 hour battery life is true. This became a new way of life for me and it has really changed how I use wearable technology in my life.

Swapped to Apple from Andorid. Previously used latest $1000 Garmin Watch for workouts and Samsung for phone.
Apple watch brilliant for heart rate, swimming, workouts and general everyday use. Much more accurate and user friendly than the Garmin. Only downside would be battery does not last as long. Still get at least a full days run with it

Purchased in September 2019 at JB Hi-Fi for $650.00.

Questions & Answers

Series 5 GPS + Cellular

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?

2 answers

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.

Watch Series 5 GPS

Can you use all the apps with the gps only model

Yes you can. It runs the same WatchOS, therefore meaning all apps are supported from the GPS+Cellular model.

Apple Watch Series 5



  • Watches in the Apple Watch Series 5 range track your daily activity and accurately measure all your favourite workouts, so you can easily see your progress.
  • They also measure your health stats, such as your blood oxygen levels, to help you be more in tune with your body.
  • Emergency SOS and the ability to detect if you’ve fallen help make your walk, run, or ride safer, giving you a bit more peace of mind when you’re out and about.
  • These watches have an Always-On Retina display so you can easily see the interface at all times, and are cellular, so you don’t have to worry about carrying your phone around with you.
  • You can choose from a variety of case and band materials and colours and patterns - there are aluminium and stainless steel cases, as well as everything from sports to leather bands.

Points of praise:

  • Most reviewers found that the watch face was easy to read, largely thanks to the larger, lit-up display.
  • They also found that it was fairly accurate in reading their heart rate and other similar health metrics.
  • According to reviewers, it’s easy to integrate this watch with an iPhone and other Apple products, and it’s also simple to install apps on it.

A point of pain:

  • Some reviewers noted that the battery life of the watch was short, and said that they usually only got one day or just less than that out of a full charge. Of course, battery life depends on how you use your watch, so not all users will experience this.
