Bigger, thinner Apple Watch Series 4 unveiled at Gather Round event

Bigger, thinner Apple Watch Series 4 unveiled at Gather Round event

Instead, the Apple Watch Series 4 can detect if its owner falls over.

While the Series 2 Apple Watch didn't support any kind of cellular connectivity, the Series 3 model introduced LTE support, allowing one to make calls from or stream music to their wearable even when their iPhone wasn't near.

How does the watch know you've fallen and not just flopped down on the bed or chucked your Apple Watch on the desk?

The company announced Wednesday received Food and Drug Administration clearance to market its latest Apple Watch, which is capable of conducting an electrocardiogram to measure heart rhythm. The event kicked off with the Apple Watch Series 4 - which gives a pretty good indication of how proud Apple is of it.

Both EE and Vodafone have network plans that can be used for the Apple Watch Series 3.

The Apple Watch series 4 will be available for pre-order this Friday, and you'll be able to get it starting next Friday, September 21.

We were expecting that this model might be a little delayed, so that's good news for those that wanted a slightly cheaper iPhone. According to the German portal Macerkpof, the price of new smartphones will start from $ 799 for the iPhone 9.

Now moving towards the end, there are new finishes available as well: Stainless Steel and Gold Stainless. Backward compatible is available on the part of wristbands. Along with the release of the new watches, Apple is dropping the price of the Series 3 to $279.

As far as India is concerned, pricing and availability details haven't yet been revealed but an announcement is expected soon. The screens are more than 30 percent larger and come in 40mm and 44mm sizes.

One of the biggest features to arrive here is the new "Walkie-Talkie" mode discussed by Apple that allows friends and family to communicate through the watch easily.

The speaker on Series 4 is 50 percent louder, and Apple moved the microphone to the opposite side of the watch to reduce echo and improve call clarity, Williams said.

Apple now claims that its Watch 4 battery life is staying strong at 18 hours for "all-day", which is a bit of a disappointment and keeps it behind the same levels claimed by others like Samsung or more dedicated running devices.

The data will be stored in the Apple Watch app and can be shared with a user's doctor via a PDF. These new health features will be available for United States customers later this year.

There are new heart rate notifications as well.

Any smart watch lives or dies by its display, and Apple not only increased the size of the screen on the Watch Series 4, it also implemented rounded corners similar to those of the iPhone X to make more of the available real estate.

Applications have been redesigned to account for the larger display and Apple has also included new customisable watch faces.

The launch of larger watches and new iPhones also confirmed expectations that the company is making only minor changes to its line-up based on last year's iPhone X.
