US Apple Watch Series 5 works on Brazilian 4G
The Watch Series 5 sold in Brazil will be different from the model sold in the USA. But, if you buy the watch over there, you probably won’t have any connectivity problems: it is also compatible with the main bands used in the Brazilian 4G (1, 3, 5 and 7). No model works in the 28 band (700 MHz), not even the one approved by Anatel.
Apple will launch the Watch Series 5 next Friday (25). Its OLED screen is always active, reducing the refresh rate to up to 1 Hz to save battery. He also gained a compass and the ability to make international emergency calls.
It is worth remembering that the Watch Series 3 suffered a reduction in price and now costs from R $ 1,999 in Brazil (US $ 199 in the USA). The Series 4 has been discontinued.
