Apple has launched Watch Series 4 yesterday along with its iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. According to the company, this watch is fundamentally redesigned and re-engineered to help you stay even more active, healthy and connected.



The watch has been priced at $399 (approx. Rs 28,700) for the GPS-only and $499 (approx. Rs 35,900) for the variant with both GPS and Cellular capabilities.



The watch helps you to keep a close monitor on your health conditions on a day to day basis and is designed to improve your health every day and powerful enough to help protect it.


The Apple Watch Series 4 comes with Low and high heart rate notifications along with fall detection and Emergency SOS.


Coming to the design part of Apple Watch Series 4, the curved corners precisely match the radius of the case, creating a more pleasing, continuous appearance. This also allows imagery and the touch surface to extend to the farthest reaches of the screen.



The optical heart sensor has been part of Apple Watch from the beginning, allowing you to quickly check your heart rate. Now it can also detect if your heart rate falls below a specified threshold for a period of 10 minutes when you appear to be inactive, triggering a low heart rate notification. This can be a sign of bradycardia, which can be serious if the heart is not pumping enough oxygen-rich blood to the body, Apple mentioned in its website.


This new Apple Series 4 watch comes with the all-new S4 chip, which more than just a processor. It’s a complete System in Package (SiP), with the entire system fabricated onto a single component. 


The watch is up to 2x faster. In fact, this fourth-generation CPU is faster than ever. Apps open more quickly and performance is boosted across the entire system.


Apple Series 4 watch has an inbuilt Emergency SOS which allows you to quickly get help. It notifies your emergency contacts, sends your current location and displays your Medical ID badge on the screen for emergency personnel. And Apple Watch Series 4 with cellular does it all even when you’re away from your phone.


The watch has a 50 per cent louder speaker which is bigger and even more powerful than the previous Apple watches. The Apple Watch Series 4 speaker provides improved audio quality for Siri and Walkie‑Talkie. In addition, the microphone has been relocated to the opposite side to reduce echo for clearer phone calls.


One of the most amazing features of the Apple Watch Series 4 is that it is water resistant to 50 metres and tracks both pool and open-water workouts.
