New Apple Watch Series 4 steals the show

The Apple Watch Series 4 was announced during the company's September keynote and it will now got head-to-head with Samsung's new Galaxy Watch. The new iPhones have more powerful processors and cameras, and a dual-SIM card feature for top-of-the-line devices.

Apple COO Jeff Williams started the show by focusing on the update to the company's popular wearable, Apple Watch Series 4. The aluminum finish will come in silver, gold and space gray while the stainless steel version will come in polished black, space black and gold.

The Apple Watch Series 4 has a few exciting and great new features, and you may be thinking it's time to swap out that old one on your wrist for the shiny new one. The watch can also detect an irregular heartbeat rhythm that may suggest atrial fibrillation. The Watch 4 uses an electrode mounted to the backside of the watch that detects heart rate among other metrics.

Apple recently unveiled its Watch Series 4 at the Special Event held on September 12.

The new Apple watch with Global Positioning System will be available for order on Apple's official website on September 14th and will be introduced in 26 countries. More recent versions began to emphasize health with new apps and functions - measuring heart beats, encouraging deep breaths, challenging friends with fitness goals. That happens to be the same date for the launch of Apple's latest smartwatch. Customers will be able to pre-order iPhone XR beginning October 19 with availability beginning October 26 in more than 50 countries and territories including Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, New Zealand and US.

Like the Series 3, it includes cellular, GPS, is swim-proof and includes Watch OS5.

The company also announced Series 4 of the Apple Watch, with prices starting at $399 for devices without cellular capabilities and $499 for watches with cellular.

However, there is the potential that the watch could mistakenly flag a problem, sending you unnecessarily to the doctor's office.

The latest model, Apple Watch Series 4 will have features like electrocardiograms, which test for irregular heartbeats that usually require a doctor visit. The redesigned crown is also notable for its thin, red outline, and haptic feedback.

The second, for the Series 4 only, is the ECG feature - which you, as the wearer of the watch, have to manually activate through the Digital Crown.

The Fall Detection Feature (Think Life Alert's "I've fallen and can't get up" ads) can sense when a fall occurs. Apple insists that the improved accelerometer won't be tricked and can easily differentiate a fall from other awkward movements.

The watch will use new sensors on the back and on the watch dial.

The feature is available immediately worldwide and will turn on automatically for users 65 and over. So, on one level that certainly sounds promising for a product that Apple is trying to position as "an intelligent guardian for your health". The device is said to run for up to 18 hours on regular use.
