Apple Watch 4 wants to keep you fitter and more alive

Apple Watch 4 wants to keep you fitter and more alive

For more on the Watch Series 4, head over to Apple here.

The device brings a design overhaul to the Apple Watch as the iPhone-maker is now using a new dual-core 64-bit S4 processor, custom created to boost performance.

Irregular heart rhythm and ECG features will be available to United States customers "later this year", Williams said.

On the software side, Apple has revamped its apps to make them fit the new screen.

"Apple Watch has become an intelligent guardian for your health", said Apple CEO Tim Cook. The larger display allows for more complications and shows more information at the glance. The speaker is also 50-percent louder, which is a very welcomed change in my book. The smartwatch is powered by Apple's A4 chipset and is two times faster than Watch 3.

Williams says the new watch can detect when you've taken a hard fall, and automatically call emergency services if you don't respond to the alert.

Williams also said the watch's battery life would be the same as the previous edition of the Apple Watch, at 18 hours. 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.

A new electrical heart rate sensor also adds ECG features.

The Apple Watch Series 4 will be available directly from Apple, either at brick-and-mortar Apple Store locations or online.

The existing Apple Watch Series 3 will still be available, at reduced prices.

And the Series 4 will be available in Singapore from Sept 21 with the cellular version exclusive with Singtel.

Various applications have been enhanced for the new device, and the Breathe app is now available as a standalone watch face for the device, synchronising dynamic images with your breathing.

"The killer app for most who have been holding out has been longer battery life, something that doesn't require daily charging, and possibly a larger screen to make it easier to type on", he said.

The 5.8 inch 2.7 million pixels while the larger handset boasts a whopping 3.3 million pixels.

The Apple Watch does bring some upgrades, but the biggest and most important is to that display. It also comes in stainless steel: polished, space black, and. gasp. gold stainless!

Apple unveiled new products on Wednesday, including a new iPhone and a new iWatch. "The A12 bionic is the industry's first 7 nanometre chip". After about 30 seconds, the device measures heart rhythms, classifies them, and alerts the user if there are signs of atrial fibrillation.

Apple didn't quite detail what operations we are talking about here.
