Apple launches Watch Series 4

Apple launches Watch Series 4

In fact, the FDA's letters to Apple classifying the watch's software as a Class II device-dated September 11 (PDF), the day before the launch event-state that the ECG app is not intended for use by people under age 22.

The most enticing feature of the new Apple Watch is that OLED display which is now over 30 per cent larger to reduce the bezels and max out the wearable's slightly larger (but also thinner) case size.

Williams described the latest Watch as an "intelligent guardian of your health", noting that Apple got clearance for the ECG app from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the first of its kind.

Topol noted that a similar product - AliveCor's Kardiaband, a band for the Apple Watch - offers EKGs and received FDA clearance previous year. The Watch's screen now goes almost edge-to-edge, thanks to a larger display which also lets watchOS 5 show more information through Apple's built-in app complications. As on the new iPhones, the screen appears to extend to the edges of the device. The speaker is also 50 percent louder.

Cook said the brand has created new categories of technologies that have had a profound effect on people worldwide.

While the Series 2 Apple Watch didn't support any kind of cellular connectivity, the Series 3 model introduced LTE support, allowing one to make calls from or stream music to their wearable even when their iPhone wasn't near.

If the watch thinks you've fallen, it'll send an alert to ask if you need help. If you're immobile for more than one minute, it will automatically make a call to emergency services for you. Series 3 watches are far to quiet to hear well if for example, you take a call while jogging.

"Apple watch can now screen your heart rate in the background and detect if users are suffering from arterial fribrilation, or an irregular heartbeat which could indicate certain health issues".

Most importantly, Apple has added new electrical sensors to the back of the Watch to enable an electrocardiogram (ECG). It's the first ECG product offered over the counter directly to consumers. If you want last year's Apple Watch Series 3, you can get it for $279 starting today.

Apple Watch Series 4 is available for pre-order this Friday, September 14. 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.

Bigger Apple Watch screenThe displays are bigger and lovely. The smartphone's display falls in between the sizes of the two OLED iPhones, at 6.1 inches, and will still get a almost edge-to-edge display. Both devices will come in silver, gold and space grey aluminum, and gold, silver and space black stainless steel.

Apple says if you drop your phone in a pool, for example, you will be able to jump in and grab it and be confident that it will be unharmed.
