While waiting for your order to arrive, or while thinking about upgrading, AppleInsider will introduce all the new features built into the improved Apple Series 4.
Of Apple’s big announcement at the “Gather Round” event in September, Apple was undoubtedly the most exciting. Series 4 is the first physical redesign of Apple since it was first released.
Many updates – internal and external
The biggest feature is the latest display that newly acquires more than 30% of available real estate. In Series 4, there is a more subtle rounded corner so that it matches that of the display, there are also updated cases that are managed to be slightly thinner.
If there are lots of bands, do not worry if all existing bands will fit. The 38 mm band fits the new 40 mm size and the old 42 mm band fits 44 mm.
To take advantage of the larger display, Apple has reworked many of the UI elements, such as updating existing faces and updating new faces. Developers can include new aspects in complex aspects, such as corresponding to rolled corners and wider spaces on the updated Infograph Modular face.
Apple’s signature Digital Crown has a completely new mechanism given tactile feedback during rotation and achieves higher accuracy. It is 30% smaller than the previous generation and 21% more parts are used.
There is a sensor in the updated digital crown. The sensor is also on the back of the sensor. If you touch both of these electronic sensors at the same time, the circuit is completed and another new function, ECG, becomes possible. Your countdown will be done on the screen and the ECG results and the possible anomalies detected will be displayed.
ECG is only one of several new cardiac health monitoring functions. Series 4 can detect low heart rate like AFib. Unfortunately, some of these new features will be unavailable at startup and will instead be shown in future software updates.
Inside there is a new second generation accelerometer with twice the dynamic range, the sling occurs 8 times more frequently and it is possible to measure up to 32G. Thanks to that, the Apple Series 4 can now detect a fall. In particular, it can detect straight fall, slip, trip.
If a fall is detected, Apple will display an alert. If you are okay, the alarm can be dismissed. Otherwise, you can warn the emergency service using the SOS function.
In circumstances where there is a possibility that it may not respond, Apple warns the emergency service and sends your location to the emergency contact if it can not detect any movement within 60 seconds.
Other improvements include 50% large speaker, new microphone, sorted microphone, seriously fast 64 bit S4 processor, excellent self-reception, Bluetooth 5 and so on.
Where to buy
Apple Series 4 has several finishes and there are two sizes. If the size of the screen becomes bigger it will be 44 mm, while the smaller one will be 40 mm (before 42 mm and 38 mm).
For aluminum, series 4 will appear in silver, space gray, and for the first time in gold color. Stainless steel has all the options of silver, gold, space black.
If the order is open and you want to purchase it yourself, it will start with $ 9 for base GPS only, 40 mm with aluminum and sports band. Ceramic “edition” model no longer exists, but for those looking for something more expensive, there are some of the best Herms options at $ 1,499.
