Three years after the launch of Watch Series 3 (2015), Apple refreshed its smartwatch with the Watch Series 4 version last year. The Verge says this also means that the next-generation Watch Series (Watch Series 5) will regain the current Watch design but add new materials to the case, such as titanium or ceramic, as some believe.

Compared to older devices, the integration of Apple Watch Series 4 with a series of features such as water resistance, speaker and microphone, direct LTE connection ... has made this device more complete. But this also makes the list of new features that the Cupertino company (USA) can include in Series 5 increasingly narrower.

In fact, Watch Series 4 is not a perfect product. This smartwatch still has poor battery life compared to most competitors in the market, such as the Fitbit Versa line. Besides, Apple's smartwatch line does not have its own app store, sleep tracking feature is still open. The command with Siri is quite annoying, while this is the only real input method on a small screen. "Always-on Display" - a necessary feature that keeps the screen always bright to display the time without manipulation, has not yet appeared on the device, although many other products from Garmin, Samsung, Huawei ... already exist.
