Apple Watch Series 4 can help keep tickers ticking

The new version, called Apple Watch Series 4, has larger screens that fit into the same overall watch sizes, and new health sensors and apps such as an electrocardiogram, or ECG, monitor. The Watch comes with a new health sensor that will alarm you if it detects the presence of atrial fibrillation and lets you take an ECG or as we term it electrocardiogram.

The Apple Watch 4 comes with an OLED panel which covers 30% more than its predecessors.

The smartwatch features the new Apple S4 SoC which contains a 64-bit dual-core processor and a new GPU, with up to two times faster performance when compared to the Series 3.

Apple COO Jeff Williams described the new watch - Series 4 of which will be available to order starting September 14 - with some superhero-sounding language, calling it an "intelligent guardian for your health".

Today at Apple's 2018 keynote event in Cupertino, CA, the company announced the newest iteration of the Apple Watch, marking the fourth series of the famous wearable. Apple says it's moved the Series 4's microphone to the opposite side of the speaker to reduce any echo effect as well.

The Apple Watch, Series 4 has a starting price of $599 (GPS only) or $749 (cellular/GPS).

Apple Watch Series 4 will be available in aluminum and stainless-steel finishes in both GPS and GPS + Cellular configurations. Of course, you'll also be able to choose a more simplified watch face if you find the new one to be way too busy, but all those options will be nice.

Last but not the least, Apple might also announce the next generation MacBooks running on 8th-generation processors. The drastic change in the price of dollar versus rupee should definitely affect the India pricing of newer models.

In the past, Apple has shied away from making specific medical claims or interpretations, even as it unveiled tools to measure health-related statistics like a person's heart rate. It detects electrical heartbeats in the wrist and allows you to take an ECG in just 30 seconds.

The new watch faces include a slew of new complications, along with several animated faces such as Breathe, fire, and water. These new health features will be available for U.S. customers later this year.

Not just that. but the watch's new ECG feature measures heart rate and will let you know if anything is irregular or potentially unsafe.

The new watch can also detect falls and contact emergency officials. If you're immobile for more than a minute, it will automatically dial emergency services for you. The watch face has been redesigned too, with eight customisable areas. S4 is available September 21 with preorders starting Friday. Battery life remains the same.

The Apple Watch Series 4's digital crown now delivers haptic feedback for a better navigation experience, and the speaker is 50% louder than previous-generation devices, said Apple.

The vanilla Apple Series Watch 4 will set you back $599 in Australia.

Apple also is introducing a significantly larger model alongside the iPhone Xs, the iPhone Xs Max, which shares numerous same features.
