Apple Watch 5

Review Date 10/23/19

Ever notice the Apple Watch only becomes a watch if you jiggle your wrist or tap its face? Some watch, huh? The 2019 upgrade to the new Apple Watch 5 fixes all that. With what Apple calls an "Always-On Retina display", now your $400 (and up) watch is actually a full-time watch and more. Last year Apple added heart monitoring to the Apple Watch. This year they've added a noise app that lets you know when the decibels in your vicinity are a bit loud. And a new cycle tracking app lets users track their menstrual cycles. It also tracks your steps, plays your music, makes your calls, and hassles you when you've been sitting too long and need to get off your bum and move around. Thanks Siri!

What could happen if something went wrong

Apple meets our minimum security standards and does a pretty good job with privacy and security as a company. However, this device does track a whole bunch of biometric data including your heart rate, menstrual cycle, hearing, breathing, and your heart's electrical signals. Better hope your insurance company never gets access to all that info cause that could get weird (and costly).
