Apple Watch Series 4 Hands-On: A Seriously Stunning Screen

Apple Watch Series 4 Hands-On: A Seriously Stunning Screen

The strategy has been successful, helping Apple's stock up more than 30 pct this year and making it the first publicly traded US company to hit a market value of more than $1 trillion.

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

To make the most of the extra space, there are now new customization options for faces and Complications.

Apple's new phones are the XS, with a 5.8-inch (14.7-cm) screen, starting at $999, and the XS Max, the largest iPhone to date and one of the biggest on the market, has a 6.5-inch (16.5-cm) screen, and starts at $1,099.

The larger model now comes with a 45mm screen, up from 42mm, and the smaller version's previously 38mm screen is now 40mm.

There is no ceramic or gold Apple Watch Edition version of the Series 4. The speaker on the Apple Watch Series 4 is 50 percent louder, and the microphone has been moved away from the speaker to reduce echo.

Inside the Apple Watch Series 4 is a new 64-bit dual-core S4 processor, which Apple claims offers up to 2x faster performance. With all new sensors, the watch can also detect when you accidentally fall.

Lyon airport flights grounded as vehicle rams terminal, speeds onto runway
A white auto can be seen speeding through a field toward the runway at Lyon's Saint-Exupéry worldwide airport on Monday. Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes police proceeded to arrest the man but have not yet disclosed what he is being charged with.

Appearing at the Apple event, Dr. Ivor Benjamin, president of the American Heart Association, called the heart-monitoring features "game changing", especially the ability to detect an irregular heart rhythm, known as atrial fibrillation.

The Digital Crown now gets haptic feedback that helps navigate easily in apps like Calendar and Podcasts. If you're immobile for over a minute after a fall, it'll automatically make the call for you. Using electrodes built into the watch's crown and a new heart rate sensor, users touch and hold the side of the watch while it sends an electric current through the chest to the opposite hand.

The Apple Watch Series 4 features the same 18-hour battery life as previous-generation devices, despite the collection of new features. It also has a new interface redesigned for a larger screen with richer detail. The starting price is $279, while the Global Positioning System version costs $399 and the cellular variant begins at $499. 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. The stock drop suggests investors are concerned the features on the new smartwatches will entice consumers to Apple's products over Fitbit's.

The watch will be available in 3 aluminum finishes: silver, gold, space gray.

Pricing has gone up a little from the Series 3. Pre-orders for the Series 4 starts this Friday goes on sale September 21.

Starting at $399, some £300, for the base version of the Series 4, the price hikes up to $499, around £389, for the cellular model. All the bands that fit earlier Watches will fit the Series 4.
