Is the Apple Watch Edition Series 5 new titanium case worth its premium cost?
For everything new this year, much of Apple Watch Series 5 looks familiar. It has the same physical size and screen as the Series 4, the same red circle around the Digital Crown if you have the cellular model. The aluminum and stainless steel come in the same finishes as they did. Even the new ceramic is really a re-launch of the case Apple discontinued in 2018.
Titanium is a fantastic material for watches as it is very strong, durable, and lightweight. It also looks particularly sharp and unique in Apple’s implementation… That is a gap of around $400 between the aluminium and the titanium models, which might be a bit hard to justify. However, if you were considering the stainless steel, you should spring for the titanium. It is the best of both worlds when compared against both the aluminum and the steel.
MacDailyNews Take: Barring Liquidmetal, Titanium is the ideal case material for an Apple Watch – and for a physical credit card.
