Unboxing the Apple Watch Series 5

All of us at Epic were excited to get our hands on the new Apple Watch Series 5! We did a little unboxing video below and listed all the new features that come with Series 5. Overall, it's pretty similar to the previous version but we're happy we won't have to keep flicking our wrists to see the time. Having the new compass feature will be amazing for all you nature-loving Apple Watch users (will come in handy during hikes!). If you're new to the Apple Watch game and thinking about picking one up, we definitely recommend it! We might a be a little biased though… Best of all, your Epic products will work with the new Series 5!
