The main reason for the feature not being made available outside the US is due to Health regulatory challenges and what is required for each country. But in typical Apple fashion, they tend to carefully deploy the more complicated services or features before a more widespread availability.

Another feature rumoured for the Apple Watch series 5 is that it would be available again in a ceramic casing. Whilst Apple did ditch this from the Series 4 line up, it does offer a lighter and more scratch resistant material.Apple Watch Series 5 ceramic

Whilst Apple may have ditched the ceramic casing option because of the low sales volumes and this may have been due to the high prices. They may bring the model back at a lower price as some Apple fans were disappointed when it didn’t stay in the line up in 2018.

If Apple follows normal tradition then the Apple Watch Series 5 will be announced in September 2019 at the normal iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch event along with the release of WatchOS 6 and iOS 13.
