watchOS 5 doesn't add sleep-tracking or any other advanced analysis, but it does catch Apple Watch up to Fitbits in a few key ways.

The updated updated Siri watch face on Apple Watch now offers predictive and proactive shortcuts throughout the day based on routines, locations and information such as heart rate after a workout, commute time with Maps, or sports scores for a favorite team.

Apple Watch: Apple's wearable device will likely be getting an update come September, with a larger, edge-to-edge screen. These types of challenges are incredibly popular with Fitbit users, and now you'll be able to challenge Apple Watch-wearing friends to 7-day activity competitions. Apple also introduced new summer band colors in Marine Green, Peach and Sky Blue.

When Apple's new Apple Watch software arrives this fall, one group of users will be left out of the update: those who shelled out for the $10,000 Apple Watch Edition.

Pitched heavily as a lifestyle and health device, it's little surprise that so numerous updates in watchOS 5 are related to fitness.

How much will Starbucks' closing on Tuesday cost the company?
Williams said the full curriculum will be made available to the public "after May 29", although Starbucks did not say exactly when or where it will be published.

WatchOS 5 turbo boosts the fitness tracking capabilities of the Apple Watch.

Additionally, Apple has released new colors of the Beats Powerbeats3, as well as the Beats Solo3.

The new Walkie-Talkie app does very much what you would expect, making it possible to voice chat with another Apple Watch owner by tapping your wrist.

Workouts now support yoga and hiking, measuring heart rate to gauge performance, and there's also an outdoor running workout and pace alerts so you can train better. There's also Student ID Card integration, letting students of supporting universities make their Apple Watch a virtual student ID card.

The Siri watch face, first introduced previous year, brings a handful of the voice assistant's features right up front on your Apple Watch, providing your calendar, reminders and commute times. This will let students user their Apple Watch to enter areas normally limited in access to those with student ID cards. Also, Apple Watch users can also download the dedicated Pride watch face starting today.
