Our clearest look yet at the Apple Watch Series 4

Apple Watch Series 4 will be available for pre-order on September 14 and arrives in stores on September 21; it starts at $399 for the Global Positioning System version and $499 for the cellular option.

This new Apple Watch will likely be released within the next couple weeks and will replace the current watch's price points.

The new watch faces include a slew of new complications, along with several animated faces such as Breathe, fire, and water. Apple did this by pushing the screen farther out to the edges of the front of the device and has rounded. Where the Apple Watch Series 3's display felt like it was surrounded by some indiscernible bezel, the Series 4 adds over 30% more screen real estate to the Apple Watch without making it feel cumbersome.

In his keynote address during the launch, its CEO Cook said that the launch of new models of Apple products has brought an end to the anxious wait of millions of fans who have been looking forward to the next-generation iPhones and watches for about a year. The "Digital Crown" - the fancy name given to the watch's control dial - now has haptic feedback for easier and more precise control.

The speaker in the watch has also been redesigned to be 50 per cent louder so you can better bother folks on the bus when playing music through your watch, you bloody futuristic fellow.

A new 64-bit dual-core Apple S4 processor is equipped with a new GPU.

You might wonder why that's good; well Apple noted the Apple Watch 4 can detect a fall, in case you trip and don't realise it. The Apple Watch Series 4 also added the ability to conduct an electrocardiogram test (ECG) using the updated digital crown and a series of electrodes integrated into both the crown and the heart rate monitor. Battery life is unchanged at 18 hours, though outdoor workout time has increased to six hours, Apple says. If you don't respond for longer than a minute, the watch will start an emergency call. For current Apple Watch owners looking to update the software to WatchOS 5, you can do that on September 17. The EKG, also known as the ECG or electrocardiogram, checks the electrical activity of your heart. Following lots of spiel about how Apple Watch has "redefined what a watch can do for you", Apple announced that they are taking the Apple Watch "to the next level" by unveiling Apple Watch 4.

Apple Watch Series 4 runs watchOS 5. Alternatively, customers can also pick up in Watch 4 in stainless steel case or a new gold stainless colour. Other dynamic watch faces that interact with the larger screen and its curved edges.

It will be available in silver, black and gold.

Prices for the aluminum Apple Watch Series 4 with an elastomer sport band will begin at $399 for the 40-mm model and $429 for the 44-mm model with Global Positioning System. Band colours and styles that are already available will still fit the new watch.
