Apple Watch Series 4 pushes the display right to the edges. The design also confirms what we saw a couple of weeks ago, with a slightly redesigned rotating crown and side button, as well as a new microphone placement.
Apple is promising that the Apple Watch Series 4 will provide identical battery life to its predecessor, which translates to a full day of usage. Thanks to the electrical heart rate sensor on Watch Series 4, the user can take an electrocardiogram (ECG) using the new ECG app.
U.S. Cellular has announced that pre-orders for the Series 4 will start on September 14 on its online store and area U.S. Cellular stores. It has a new dual-core 64-bit processor with 18-hour battery life, six-hour outdoor workout life.
There is a good chance that Apple will sell out of some models of the Apple Watch Series 4 this week, and into next.
A demonstration of the newly released Apple products is seen following the product launch event at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California, U.S. September 12, 2018. If you've been immobile for one minute after the fall, the Watch will automatically call emergency services and send your location to your emergency contacts, Williams added. According to Apple, the watch faces are created to interact with the screen with features that bounce off the sides.
The new smartwatch is touted to be swimproof, has Bluetooth v5.0, and has an optical heart sensor.
Apple unveiled three new iPhones, including two with bigger displays, but perhaps the more dramatic announcement from Cupertino, Calif., on Wednesday was its new Apple Watch, with the new health-related tools. However, Apple's total share of the smartwatch market dipped, down from 43% to 34% during the first quarter of this year, indicating the smartwatch market overall has become more crowded and competitive. With Series 4, Apple will add notifications if your heart rate is too low, which could signal that you're not circulating enough blood throughout the body. Apple's received clearance from the FDA - the US Food and Drug Administration - for both its heart rate monitor and the ECG technology. It is the first ECG product available to consumers over the counter, said Apple's chief operating officer Jeff Williams during the presentation.
To be extra clear, the Apple Watch Series 4 is created to work with any existing wristbands. The higher end Gold Stainless Steel Series 4 is $699 and $749 for the 40mm and 44mm sizes, respectively.
