We expected the Apple Watch 5 to launch on September 10 alongside the new iPhone 11, and we weren't disappointed.

It also supports worldwide emergency calling, which is a great addition for added safety. It will be available to order from 10 September, starting at $399/£399 for the Global Positioning System only model and from $499/£499 for the Global Positioning System and Cellular model.

After an inspirational detailing the myriad of ways in which the Apple Watch has improved the health and well-being of its users, Apple divulged what we can expect to see from its next-gen wearable.

The Apple Watch Series 5 will be available in aluminum and stainless steel finishes as well as new titanium and ceramic models.

There will also be new Apple Watch Nike modes and Hermes models, with the Hermes models now coming in a space black casing option too.

The Apple Watch Series 5 starts at US$399 for Global Positioning System models, and $499 for cellular models, with pre-orders open now and shipping on September 20. Emergency SOS has been improved: the cellular version can instantly call emergency services in many global countries by simply holding the crown button down in an emergency. Those who want to enroll can sign up on the new Apple Research app. Both models can be ordered right now from apple.com and will be available in stores starting September 20 in the USA and 38 other countries and regions for the GPS-only version.

The big feature is the introduction of an App Store straight on the watch - conceivably, so you can use it without even needing a phone as a go-between.
