Apple Watch Series 4 official with larger display

Marion JacobsSep 13, 2018

The design of the Apple Watch 4 is much like many would expect - it's based on the previous four models (the first Watch was retooled and re-released, remember), but now is ever so slightly larger, as you can see in our side-by-side pictures.

New watch faces, including one with up to eight customisable complications, or special features.

The arrival of the new devices also marks the discontinuation of the iPhone X, less than a year after it arrived in Apple's game-changing move into edge-to-edge OLED iPhones, as all attention shifts to the next-gen versions. Of course, along with the new Watch came a plethora of cool new bands to choose from that are tailor made for the Series 4's larger sizes and new, optimized faces.

Apple has unveiled a new smart watch at their annual launch event that is not just faster and sleeker but also capable of saving lives. This new watch takes the better bits of the previous model and makes them bigger and better in three specific areas: connectivity, fitness, and health. There's a new accelerometer and gyroscope inside the Apple Watch Series 4, too, which can help the device to detect falls.

Not just that. but the watch's new ECG feature measures heart rate and will let you know if anything is irregular or potentially risky.

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. The redesign also allows for more accurate scrolling through lists and apps, and there's also haptic feedback. If you're immobile for more than a minute, it will automatically dial emergency services for you. We have been hearing about AFib detection lately and knew it was eventually coming to Apple Watch, and now it is here.

Eagles fans kick of 2018 National Football League season at Penn's Landing
With a 13.4/5 in the metered markets, the post-midnight ending game is down 8% from last year's kickoff of September 7, 2017 . Jones dominated the game for the Falcons , making up for 67.33% of Matt Ryan's total passing yardage.

The user can touch the Digital Crown and receive heart rhythm classification after 30 seconds.

Apple Watch Series 4 boasts a screen that's 30% larger than it's predecessor - in a smaller-volume package. The wearable's speakers are said to be 50 percent louder, as well, which Apple positions as making the device better for taking phone calls and talking with the Siri digital assistant.

Cellular signals also get a boost thanks to some fiddling with the watch's new ceramic rear, so you can gabble into your watch like a nutty Power Ranger.

But the Series 4 isn't only about the display. The next-generation Watch Series will also be available in a gold stainless steel option with matching Milanese band, in addition to the silver and space black stainless steel models.

The Apple Watch Series 4 will start at a $399 for the non-cellular Global Positioning System model, and the cellular-model will start at $499.

T-Mobile starts pre-orders for the Series 4 starting on September 14 at 12:01 a.m. PT. Pricing is forthcoming and we will update this when it's available.
