Apple Watch, Series 4

Apple unveiled the next generation of its smartwatch on Wednesday—the Apple Watch, Series 4—in two sizes, each featuring a larger screen than in the past. The smaller fourth-gen Apple Watch moves to a 40mm display, from 38mm previously, while the larger fourth-gen Apple Watch gets a 44mm screen, compared with the previous 42mm size. Slimmer bezels help to enable the larger screen sizes, and Apple said the new Apple Watches are thinner, giving the smartwatches less total volume than Series 3. Other changes in the fourth-gen Apple Watch include up to 2X faster performance (via the new dual-core S4 chip) and a 50 percent louder speaker, while the cellular connectivity and 18-hour battery life of the previous model have been retained.

Additional features for health monitoring are also included in the fourth-gen Apple Watch, such as the ability to take an electrocardiogram heart beat measurement (the first time this is offered in a consumer product, Apple said, thanks to FDA approval); notifications on low heart rates and irregular heart rhythms (known as atrial fibrillation); and detection of falls (which generates an automatic call to emergency services).

The Apple Watch, Series 4 has a starting price of $399 (GPS only) or $499 (cellular/GPS). Preorders begin Friday, Sept. 14, with the smartwatch shipping Sept. 21.
