Apple Watch 4 could stop sunburn

Apple Watch 4 could stop sunburn

The highly-anticipated new models of Apple iPhones and watches were launched from the Steve Jobs Theatre at the company's new headquarters in Cupertino, California on Wednesday.

Any smart watch lives or dies by its display, and Apple not only increased the size of the screen on the Watch Series 4, it also implemented rounded corners similar to those of the iPhone X to make more of the available real estate.

Apple Watch 4 also comes with new watch dynamic watch faces, such as fire, water and vapour faces that interact with the watch dial itself.

The speaker on Series 4 is 50 percent louder, and Apple moved the microphone to the opposite side of the watch to reduce echo and improve call clarity, Williams said. Other additions include a "low heart rate" notification, alerts for atrial fibrillation, and electrocardiogram (ECG).

You can pre-order an Apple Watch Series 4 starting September 14, and expect it to ship or show up in stores on September 21.

Apple unveiled the new Apple Watch at its event Wednesday: the Apple Watch Series 4. Despite the physical overhaul, Apple still managed to wedge in a battery that will remain consistent with the Series 3's 18 hours of usage on a charge. Prices start at $399 for the cellular 40mm version - which will be carried by EE and Vodafone (the latter new for this edition).

Echoing the iPhone lineup, the stainless steel Apple Watch Series 4 is available in a new gold finish - a first for stainless steel case options. Williams also said the back of the new Apple Watch is made entirely of black ceramic and sapphire crystal. The first three generations of Apple Watch were offered with 38mm and 42mm watch cases. It will cost $399 with Global Positioning System and $499 with cellular capability.

The interface can withhold up to eight customizable complications, which makes it the "ultimate health and fitness watch". This feature will be reaching to U.S. customers later this year followed by a wider rollout.

A new electrical heart rate sensor also adds ECG features.

Apple also is introducing a significantly larger model alongside the iPhone Xs, the iPhone Xs Max, which shares numerous same features. This has the knock-on effect of reducing the starting price of the Apple Watch Series 3 to $279, around £213. If you are planning to watch using an Apple TV, you must have a second- or third-generation device updated to 6.2 or later or a fourth-generation model with any software version. It's going on sale on September 21st in stores, but you can pre-order the Apple Watch 4 this week and get it delivered on the release date.

It can also detect falls and will alert emergency services if it fails to detect movement 10 minutes after one has occurred.

Apple has even added new Workout related features which will automatically detect the type of workout you're doing now, so you don't have to slide your finger on the tiny display to kick off a new Workout session. Perhaps the one-day battery life is the reason why Apple has yet to add an always-on display feature to its smartwatches.
