New Apple Watch Series 4 unveiled, bigger screen, faster processing

Apple chief operating officer Jeff Williams said the company is taking the Apple Watch to the next level with the newest generation of the device, improving functionality across multiple areas.

While the design is fairly similar to previous Apple Watch models, the S4 manages to pack up to 35 percent larger display into a similar form factor thanks to slimmed-down bezels. In 16 of those regions, 34 carriers will have the cellular version from $499.

Apple's new smartwatches would also feature automatic accident detection for the first time, Mr Williams said, and had been created to measure the difference between a user slipping, tripping, and falling.

Apple Watch Series 4 Will Come in 40mm and 44mm Sizes

The Apple Watch 4 will be available in silver, gold and space grey. Of course, you'll also be able to choose a more simplified watch face if you find the new one to be way too busy, but all those options will be nice.

The new watch has new features, like the ability to measure your heart rate with an electrocardiogram, and a hardware redesign that gives it a larger display. These include a Pure Platinum/Black Sport Band and a Summit White Sport Loop Band. You'll still have to charge your watch every night, even if you upgrade to the latest Apple Watch model.

Before the event unveiled the new watch, Cook boasted on the Apple Watch for being the no. 1 smartwatch - and no. 1 watch in general - in the world, praising its breakthrough technology that helps people "stay connected, be more active and live a healthier day".

If you've been waiting for watchOS 5 final to arrive for your Apple Watch then you will be pleased to learn that it will be available on the 17th of September. If you want last year's Apple Watch Series 3, you can get it for $279 starting today. It has been optimised for phone calls, Siri and Walkie-Talkie. Apple says it's moved the Series 4's microphone to the opposite side of the speaker to reduce any echo effect as well. The user can add contacts on the Watch Face to just touch to start a call. There are a bunch of new faces like the new Fire watchface, and Breathe watchface coming with the new Series 4 Watch. 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. The feature will roll out in the U.S. later this year.
