Apple's watchOS 5 is coming with a long list of improvements

There's also a new cadence metric (steps per minute), and a new pace alarm that alert users if they are behind their chosen pace. The system is flexible enough to include data retroactively for you, so you don't exclude any data. The new OS demands a dual-core processor, absent only from the first Watch, and is expected to end support for watchOS 1 apps as well.

Apple also revealed a new feature called Walkie-Talkie which allows users to send short voice memos to friends. These come with interactive controls and work without actually letting users open the app on their connected iPhone.

The fitness features are largely quality of life improvements for those who like to exercise while wearing their Apple Watch. Plus on top of that, you'll also now just be able to raise the watch and speak directly to Siri. Now, you also do not have to say "Hey, Siri" to trigger it.

Podcasts have now extended their reach to the Apple Watch in watchOS 5.

The Siri watchface gets some new data as well. It now offers more predictive and proactive shortcuts throughout the day based on routines, locations and information such as heart rate after a workout, commute time with Maps at the appropriate time of day or sports scores for a favorite team. So you can really mare the Siri watchface your own.

Original Apple Watch owners are naturally disappointed their three year old device has reached the end of the road and it's easy to understand why. Most likely, web resources.

So far, Apple has limited the number of faces available to customers, a stark contrast to other smartwatches like the Fitbit Versa. It does this by monitoring your heart rate and realizing you've slowed down and have probably stopped. Apple will do its best to optimize the content for the small display in the background.

Podcasts are coming to WatchOS as well. "With the launch of watchOS 5, we're excited to introduce new activity and communications features that will take the Watch to a whole new level".

And the Apple Watch is becoming useful for students, with the addition of Student ID cards that college kids can tap to gain access to buildings and more on campus. A few universities are already on board to test-drive the system soon.
