You can buy the Apple Watch from Apple, through carriers like AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile or you can look for deals from Amazon and Best Buy. The Apple Watch 5 starts at $399 for the 40mm size and $429 for the 44mm size. Add $100 for LTE connectivity, and premiums for different materials and watchband combos.
- Always-On Retina display

The Apple Watch Series 5 is a nice upgrade from the Apple Watch 4. While the overall design is the same, Apple adds in an always-on display, a compass, International Emergency calling, and upgrades that are especially tempting for new Apple Watch buyers or users on an older model. There are also new Titanium models and a Ceramic option.
This guide will help you decide if you should buy the Apple Watch 5 today, or if you should hold off and wait.
