Apple Watch Series 4 hands-on

Apple Watch Series 4 hands-on

First of which was its Apple Watch Series 4 line of smartwatches.

Alongside the screen upgrade, the watches are also receiving improved health-tracking abilities, replacing the light-based heart monitor found in earlier models with a new ECG-based system, which is generally more accurate - particularly when used on dark or tattooed skin. Once a fall is detected, Apple Watch can send an alert to your emergency contact and call emergency services for you.

Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS) will be available to order from September 14 in 26 countries, while the GPS + Cellular variant will be available to order in 16 countries.

Apple also announced that the Watch Series 3 would now be available at the new starting price of $279.

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.

Also for the first time, because Apple is allowing its stream to be played on other platforms, it will be available on Twitter. The watch is also powered by new S4 chipset, which is a 64-bit chipset that Apple claims is two times faster. If you don't respond for longer than a minute, the watch will start an emergency call. However, it is worth noting that Apple has made the move to more energy-efficient, LTPO OLED screens for the Series 4.

Applications have been redesigned to account for the larger display and Apple has also included new customisable watch faces.

The Apple Watch Series 4's battery life has the same 18-hour battery life as its predecessors, even with the enhancements. This newest Apple Watch has an accelerometer and gyroscope inside, both of which are now "next-generation" according to Williams.

Today at the Steve Jobs Center in Cupertino, Apple took the wraps off the latest addition to its Watch range. It is backed by 16GB of storage - as much as on a GPS + Cellular Series 3 model, but twice as much as on the Series 2 or GPS Series 3 models.

Like the previous Apple Watch, battery life is claimed to be 18 hours, but a charge should last longer for workouts and running than before: 6 hours with Global Positioning System. It will come in Silver, Gold, Space Gray, Polished Space Black, and a new Gold Stainless color.

But the Series 4 isn't only about the display. This feature will be reaching to U.S. customers later this year followed by a wider rollout. For current Apple Watch owners looking to update the software to WatchOS 5, you can do that on September 17.

Are you willing to get the Apple Watch Series 4? For one, Series 4 Watches will regularly keep an eye on the wearer's heart rate in the background, and they'll automatically inform the wearer if their heartbeat shows signs of atrial fibrillation. With watchOS 5, the pulse sensor will occasionally capture your heart rhythm and notify you of an irregular beat.
