Apple is definitely making some noticeable leaps in the wearable space. With the Apple Watch Series 5, the company proved to the world that it doesn't need to fix anything that wasn't broken in the first place. Instead, Apple went ahead and added an always-on display, threw in a compass and called it a day. That's all.
