Apple Watch 4 wants to keep you fitter and more alive

Nichole VegaSep 13, 2018

Apple Watch Series 4 pre-orders start at 12:01 AM Pacific on September 14th, that's 3:01 AM Eastern. The larger displays mean that there're more room to present information including more customizable complications (up to 8). Apple did this by pushing the screen farther out to the edges of the front of the device and has rounded.

Though the screens on Series 4 are larger, Apple said it made "minimal changes" to the case size; it's thinner and less total volume than Series 3.

While all that's well and good, events leading up to the keynote had one chatter cropping up quite often: will my current bands work with the new Series 4 model?

The Digital Crown now has haptic feedback and the speaker has been redesigned to be 50 percent louder, which is handy for phone calls and talking to Siri. He said Apple has received clearance from the Food and Drug Administration for its new ECG app, and that the data will be protected by encryption on the Watch and in the cloud.

Apple Watch Series 4 includes a new accelerometer and gyroscope, which can detect hard falls.

As previous models before it, the Series 4 Apple Watch has an optical heart rate monitor that logs your pulse constantly and alerts you of abnormalities.

But, the new processor and speed doesn't come at the cost of battery life, with a claimed 18 hours of use between charges. If Apple Watch senses immobility for 60 seconds after the notification, it will automatically call emergency services and send a message along with location to emergency contacts.

We loved the Apple Watch Series 3 when we reviewed it at Express.co.uk.

The watch has new heart-tracking features, like the ability to take an electrocardiogram, and a larger, almost edge-to-edge display.

For all that's new in the Apple Watch Series 4, the company says the improvements it made will have no effect on battery life. The starting price is $279, while the Global Positioning System version costs $399 and the cellular variant begins at $499.

Built-in sensors that let you take an electrocardiogram, or ECG.

Cellular signals also get a boost thanks to some fiddling with the watch's new ceramic rear, so you can gabble into your watch like a nutty Power Ranger. Even if you have an older Apple Watch, you'll still get to enjoy most of the features introduced by the new software. Standard watch finishes are aluminum anodized in silver, gold, and space gray. Alternatively, customers can also pick up in Watch 4 in stainless steel case or a new gold stainless colour.

Williams noted that all band colors and band styles fit any generation of the Apple Watch. The Watch Series 4 will be available in some countries starting September 21, and global availability will follow later this year. Apple Watch Series 4 with GPS will start at $399, while the GPS + Cellular configuration will be available starting from $499.
