During the course of the past week, I have been trying it out to see how it functions and works in my everyday life. I will point out that I have not had the Always-On Display on, disabled some of the health notifications such as the ones from the Breathe app and do not have LTE on this Apple Watch.
The one that I have noticed about this Apple Watch compared to my old Series 1 is that the battery life is so much better. There were days with my Series 1 where the battery would start at 100 percent and then after about two hours of standby usage, it would be under 80 percent. That right there becomes a problem for people like me.
So far, with my Apple Watch Series 5, I have not been able to get the Series 5 under 75 percent after a week of using it. Right there, that shows Apple has been trying to improve its products in that respect.
In addition to that, I do like that the watch works with my 38mm watchband from my 38mm Series 1. This aspect was one of the top reasons I purchased the 40mm Series 5.
Lastly, I like the notifications on it. Perhaps it is the bigger screen and all, but I do like that they are clearer and I can see them better now too. My notifications for CARROT Weather and text messages have never appeared and looked better.
This is no review, but so far, I have been pretty impressed with the Apple Watch Series 5. I look forward to the upcoming weeks ahead where I can test it even more.
