When it comes to smartwatches, Apple is considered to be one of the strongest contenders in the market with powerful devices that have been known for its excellent health functions.

This is why it is understandable that as early as now fans are already anticipating the arrival of the Apple Watch Series 5 which is expected to offer more groundbreaking health features.

With the recent update of the watch OS, we know that the Apple Watch Series from 2 to 4 have already been upgraded with ECG functions that are available not only in the U.S. but in other parts of the world such as Europe and the Asia Pacific. This, plus a function that measures heart rate and detect atrial fibrillation or irregular heartbeat also make the Apple smartwatch a formidable health partner.

So what else could make the Apple Watch Series 5 even more appealing? A number of rumored features can actually do the job. The first function is sleep tracking which Forbes already reported to be one of the most unique features of the upcoming smartwatch. And although IBTimes earlier reported that this function has some nicks that need to be addressed, we believe that this will be a great help for users should the speculation proves to be true.

Another feature that would truly make the Apple Watch 5 exceptional is the “always on display” function. Currently, Apple Watches need to be tapped or have its function button pressed to enable display. An “always on display” bit would make the device more convenient for users although this would probably require an improved battery life.

The next function smartwatch fans will probably want to see in the next Apple Watch is longer battery life. This will be a stretch as rumored functions like sleep tracker, which means users would need to wear the watch even in bed, will most likely drain the device. On the upside, consideration of this function is likely to have been thought of and battery implications have already been considered.

Another cool feature that would make the Apple Watch 5 truly the coolest bit of technology is a Face Sensor. Although the Face ID is available only in the Apple iPhone, connecting the feature to the smartwatch would complement the convenience of using both devices.

There are other characteristics that Apple Watch fans hope to see in the next available model such as a thinner body and customized face watches. But no matter what the new features will be once the watch makes its expected release in September this year, we’re sure that it will be worth the wait.
