No. The Apple Watch 5 will not take measurements of blood pressure, body fat or temperature, same goes for previous models like the Apple Watch 3 or Watch 4.
The Watch 5 (check latest price) will only read your heart beat and can also record an ECG when used with Apple’s Health App. The photo from our sister site InFAQ shows the pulse sensor (center, green) and the electrodes for the ECG: the dark gray pad in the crown and the half-circle segments at the bottom of the case.
Cheap fitness trackers from China (example) promise to measure the blood pressure but are in fact estimating it from pulse, age and weight. They also have to be calibrated before use with actual measurements. Data obtained with those devices can not replace a proper upper arm measument with a cuff (example).
As for body fat and BMI, a dedicated scale is required; our recommendation is Fitbit’s well reputed Aria 2 smart scale.
Still undecided? See price and latest ratings for the Apple Watch 5.

Camera Creativ can recommend these digital cameras from personal experience. They all provide the best value in their respective category.
Large 1" sensor and 10x Leica lens make the ZS100 / TZ101 the perfect travel zoom.
4K Video, panos and a 60x zoom, combined with Pannys Post Focus in a portable package.
Grading up from a smartphone or compact? Then the Rebel T6 / 1300D might be for you.
APS-C DSLR for discriminating amateurs. With articulated screen and dedicated microphone port.
Best-selling mirrorless ILC with APS-C sized sensor and speedy AF. Currently at bargain prices.
APS-C ILC with 4K video, sensible feature set and nice EVF. Vast selection of lenses via adapter.
First gen. RX100 with 4x Zeiss lens. Still our standing recommendation, especially when on offer.
Posh compact with 1" sensor and very bright 4x zoom. Pocketable and with good manual controls.
Best feature and sensor set in any outdoor camera bar none, combined with clever software.
New in 2018 with 4K 60p support and improved stabilizer. Still the mother of all action cams.
