3 New Features & Benefits
While the Apple Watch Series 4 introduced several exclusive new features, watchOS 5 is packed with improvements that can make any supported Apple Watch device feel like a new wearable.

There are new workout types like Hiking, automatic exercise-tracking, and other major health and fitness improvements. In addition, Siri can now be activated with a new Raise to Speak capability.
watchOS 5 also adds support for podcast listening and offline playlists.
