Apple unveils new iPhones, smart watch - Hardware

Image Source All Things How

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".

Apple Watch Series 4 pre-orders start at 12:01 AM Pacific on September 14th, that's 3:01 AM Eastern.

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

While I only spent a few minutes wearing it so far, the advances made in the latest version of Apple's wearable device might be the best example of why Apple has such an advantage when it comes to smartwatches, especially compared to the competition.

All Apple Watches have previously been 38mm or 42mm models (referencing the display size), the new leak shows they will now measure 40mm and 44mm tall.

Evacuations underway as Florence strengthens to category 4 hurricane
He told The Chronicle Sunday that once Florence hits land, destructive winds and vast rainfall flooding may take hold of the area. Forecasters have predicted as much as 20inches of rain in parts of North Carolina , which could cause potentially fatal flooding.


Apple announced the Series 4 wearable at its Gather Round hardware event at its Cupertino campus. If you or a loved one falls, the Apple Watch can even contact emergency services. That's a 64-bit Dual-Core processor, designed by Apple to be up to 2x faster than its predecessor. There's a new accelerometer and gyroscope inside the Apple Watch Series 4, too, which can help the device to detect falls.

Speaking of detection the Apple Watch Series 4 can now screen your heart rhythm for irregularities to see if your suffering from atrial fibrillation (which isn't good) and can also detect low heart rates and alert wearers that the end could be nigh.

The crown is now digital with haptic feedback as we reported a few months back. According to Apple, the watch faces are created to interact with the screen with features that bounce off the sides. It detects electrical heartbeats in the wrist and allows you to take an ECG in just 30 seconds. There will also be an ECG app coming later this year that will allow users to record and ECG by placing their finger on the digital crown.

The Apple Watch Series 3 started at $459 for the GPS-only version that skipped mobile connectivity, and $559 for the always-connected version. Williams said Apple conducted tests with "thousands" of people to capture data on real-world falls.

The Series 4 has the same 18-hour battery life as the Series 3, Apple says. And, in case the ease of use isn't enough, the ECG app has been granted clearance by the FDA - the first device of its kind to receive such a distinction.

Apple Watch Nike+ features redesigned Nike watch faces that match the new band colours.

The device will be available in a number of finishes, including silver, gold, space grey, as well as in a new gold stainless version.

Prices for the aluminum Apple Watch Series 4 with an elastomer sport band will begin at $399 for the 40-mm model and $429 for the 44-mm model with Global Positioning System.
