The fifth iteration of Apple's smartwatch starts at $399 for the Global Positioning System only model and $499 for the Global Positioning System and cellular version.

When you tap your watch face, the display will light up as per previous Apple Watches.

"We've seen Apple Watch have a meaningful impact on our customers' lives and we're excited to deliver even more capabilities with Apple Watch Series 5 and watchOS 6", said Jeff Williams, Apple's Chief Operating Officer.

Apple is all set for its biggest event this year where it will launch the 2019 iPhones along with other Apple accessories like the new AirPods.

The Apple Watch 5 was announced during the company's September 10 event alongside the next iPhone. This availability was detailed for the Apple Watch Series 5 GPS model, while the GPS + Cellular model will be up for order in 22 countries and regions on September 20. Pricing starts at $399 for the aluminum GPS model or $499 for the aluminum GPS + Cellular version, while the stainless steel models start at $699.

Perhaps the most interesting development for readers of this site is the reintroduction of the Apple Watch "Edition" line, with models available in ceramic and, for the first time, titanium.

A game like this is sure to generate buzz all on its own, nevermind the profits that can potentially be made from the game itself. KFC has done a lot of odd things to draw attention to its brand in recent years, but this might be the strangest yet.

Stainless steel variants remain on offer, in gold, silver and space black.

Apple's newest Watch, the Series 5, builds on last year's model with an always-on display, compass, and different materials. And of course, there will be a few new watch faces. The workout app has also been tweaked to continuously show stats and exercise data. Apart from unveiling it on a global stage, Apple has also announced the Apple Watch 5 India prices.

The Apple Watch 5 has improved the safety features in the watch with fall detection, emergency SOS, and Medical ID.

Starting later this year, Apple Watch owners will be able to enroll to participate in these studies, when applicable, through the new Apple Research app.

Over 100 game titles, playable on iPad, iPhone, Mac and Apple TV, will be available at launch. Samsung has also had its own app store in Galaxy Watches for ages now, too.

WatchOS 6 continues the phone-detaching trend with three new standalone watch apps that are wristbound versions of extant iPhone apps: Apple Books, Voice Memos, and Calculator.
