Apple Watch Series 4 Brings Life-Saving Improvements to the Popular Smartwatch

Apple Watch Series 4 was one of the highlights of Apple’s Special Event today, broadcast live from the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, CA. The new version of the popular Apple Watch, which Apple noted was now the number one watch in the world, period, has a veritable treasure trove of new design and feature ideas meant to help make life easier and safer for anyone who uses it.

The new watch, aside from rocking a few aesthetic and performance improvements, amazingly has a series of new heart-centric health features meant to keep its users more aware of their physical health. The watch will be able to utilize new features that will help assist it with screening the wearer’s heart rhythm for any abnormalities that may be related to conditions such as bradycardia, tachycardia (slow or fast heartbeat) or even atrial fibrillation, which is essentially an irregular heart rhythm.

Perhaps astonishingly is the new addition of the electrocardiogram (EKG) feature, which will allow users to perform an EKG directly from the Apple Watch. This will mark the first consumer-grade EKG that’s ever been available to consumers without having to visit a clinic to have the procedure performed. What’s more, Apple has been cleared by the Food and Drug Administration to have the Apple Watch Series 4 classified as a medical-grade device in this manner. Users can open an app on the watch, place one finger on the digital crown dial, and measure their EKG in seconds without having to go to the doctor’s office or pay expensive testing fees.

To that end, the watch has also implemented a new fall detection feature, which lets the watch figure out if you’ve taken a nasty tumble, and can automatically call 911 or a predetermined number for you if you remain unmoving for over a minute after falling down. This will be especially useful for those with limited mobility or elderly parents or other family members in the home.

Major changes have come to the Watch’s physical form, too. The screen is now almost edge to edge, with a new larger display in both 40mm and 44mm sizes. The display itself has become 30% bigger, and there’s more to watchOS as a result. The new UI has been altered so that it really makes use of the bigger display screen. There’s also a new watch face with eight built-in complications.

The watch’s overall body has been altered in meaningful ways as well with the digital crow now including haptic feedback and a special LTE ring indicator that flashes red when looking for service. It’s also significantly louder than it used to be, with an improved speaker. Finally, the back of the watch features a sapphire crystal and black ceramic with the electrodes that allow for the aforementioned electrocardiogram recordings to be done.

The battery may have remained the same, but this is clearly overall the most feature-packed Apple Watch yet. Best of all, you can continue to use the same bands from your previous models if you don’t feel like purchasing a new one. There are new gold and stainless steel finishes to choose from, and it’s all going to be releasing a lot sooner than you may have expected.

The Apple Watch Series 4 goes live to preorder on Friday, and it will begin shipping on September 21, starting at $399 for the GPS edition and $499 for GPS + LTE versions. If this is one Apple device you’re interested in snapping up, you’d better go ahead and get that preorder in, as this one will undoubtedly sell like hotcakes.
