One new feature, "activity competitions", allows you to create week-long competitions with friends to complete "rings" (workout goals you create) the fastest. The victor will get an award to add to their collection, kind of like real life achievement system.

A new Workout type for Yoga has been added, as well as Hiking with elevation tracking. If you forget to start workout detection at the beginning of your workout, watchOS' new automatic workout detection can retroactively credit you with workout time. Similarly, the new feature also gives reminders to end workout sessions after a period of inactivity.

Walkie talkie: this new feature brings press-to-talk communication to watch owners. The Siri watch face will show you predictive shortcuts, such as a workout and a playlist that you usually do at a specific time of day. Also, third-party apps, like Nike+ Run Club and Citymapper, will be accessible directly through the Siri watch face for the first time. The new watch-to-watch connection is fast and can be activated between any compatible Apple Watch users around the world over Wi-Fi or cellular. Webkit content can be displayed in notifications now, and just like on iOS 12, notifications are grouped by app. Walkie-Talkie watchOS 5 introduces Walkie-Talkie, an entirely new way to communicate with voice and just a tap of the wrist. The Pride band is available for $49 on Apple's website and will roll out to Apple Stores in 35 countries, including the US, UK, Australia, Japan, Germany, France, China, Canada, Brazil and more.

There's a ton of other features, too.

Watch notifications, which were once simple alerts relayed from your iPhone, will become significantly more useful in watchOS 5, especially in third-party apps.
