Apple Watch Series 5 Titanium Models Weigh Up to 13% Less Than Stainless Steel Models

When the Apple Watch Series 5 lineup was introduced earlier this week, tech specs on Apple's website listed incorrect weights for the new models based on Series 4 weights. Apple has since corrected the data, providing for an accurate comparison of the new titanium casing option with stainless steel.

40mm and 44mm titanium Series 5 models weigh 35.1 and 41.7 grams respectively, according to Apple, which is up to 13 percent lighter than the 40mm and 44mm stainless steel Series 5 models at 40.6 and 47.8 grams respectively.

Meanwhile, 40mm and 44mm aluminum Series 5 models weigh 30.8 and 36.5 grams respectively, which is virtually the same as aluminum Series 4 models. And the 40mm and 44mm ceramic models weigh 39.7 and 46.7 grams respectively, making them slightly lighter than ceramic Series 3 models, despite having larger displays.

40mm
- Aluminum: 30.8 grams
- Stainless Steel: 40.6 grams
- Titanium: 35.1 grams
- Ceramic: 39.7 grams

44mm
- Aluminum: 36.5 grams
- Stainless Steel: 47.8 grams
- Titanium: 41.7 grams
- Ceramic: 46.7 grams

Apple Watch Series 5 pre-orders began earlier this week, with deliveries to customers and in-store availability starting Friday, September 20. Key features include an always-on display, a new Compass app, international emergency calling on cellular models, 32GB of storage, and the new casing options.

I don't see the point of this article. This is all in the spec sheets for anyone interested.

I like the weight though. Anyone else?

I don’t like the aluminium ones as they don’t feel solid.

It’s an improvement from the red dot ;-) but I wish they would remove the ring now
