Apple’s watchOS 5 update is a major breath of fresh air for the Apple Watch. It might be enough to convince you that you don’t need to upgrade to the Apple Watch 4. Installing this update is a major decision, and unlike the iOS 12 update, you cannot go back to watchOS 4 if you don’t like it.
The watchOS update is available today for all users after months of testing. This upgrade is available on the Apple Watch Series 1 and newer. It is not coming to the original Apple Watch. It will ship on the Apple Watch 4, so you won’t have an option to install if you buy that model.
