Apple introduced yesterday the news on WWDC regarding iOS, tvOS, macOS and of course, watchOS, the operating system of its Apple Watch.
WatchOS 5, however, is something that some users may not appreciate as much as they would like. In fact, even if it brings interesting news, the problem is that it will not come to all Cupertino smart watches.

Well, not really. The first smartwatch It was old-fashioned enough – spec-wise – for what would be watchOS 5. It was, in many people's minds, the previous summer.
Apple Watch Original will not receive watchOS 5!
This way, only Series 1, 2, and 3 models will receive the update that brings the new Walkie talkie. The big problem for those who own one of the first generation watches is if, unfortunately, they eventually bought a model that could have reached $ 17,000 in price.
Yes, according to the settings between the watch itself and the strap itself, your price may have been that one. And the question that many ask, therefore, is: shouldn't the American company have any other consideration for such a reality?
No, not really. The Series 0 had been updated for over three years and truth be told, getting to watchOS 4 was a lot better than many would expect. Therefore, the decision is perfectly understood.
