The Apple Watch Series 5 is the first Apple Watch to feature an always-on display – and what a difference this makes. Previously, the Apple Watch's face remained dark until you raised your wrist. Now when I glance down at my wrist, no matter what position it's in, I can see what time it is.

It sounds a bit silly, that the Apple Watch can now tell you the time all the time, but it's updates like this that have cemented the Apple Watch Series 5's leading position in our ranking of the best smartwatches right now. Elsewhere, you standout features include the heart health diagnostic tools that made the Apple Watch Series 4 so essential — including the ECG app — a built-in compass and the watchOS 6 tools that improve just about every part of the Apple Watch experience.
Apple is reportedly working on an Apple Watch 6 with improved sleep tracking and an even better MicroLED display, but that's not supposed to be released until September 2020.
