Apple Watch Series 4 Official Release Date | Price | Specs | Colors

Our clearest look yet at the Apple Watch Series 4

The first new item on the agenda for tonight's Apple event was the Apple Watch.

You can pre-order an Apple Watch Series 4 starting September 14, and expect it to ship or show up in stores on September 21. The watch is 30-percent larger on its face (40mm and 44mm) and thinner front-to-back.

Today, Apple unveiled all of its new devices for 2018. The new version has roughly the same body size as last year's Series 3, but has more than 30% more area for content with its 1.9-inch display. It will have haptic feedback in the digital crown, meaning gestures will feel more mechanical and "clicky".

Our reviewer, David Snelling, said: "There's no question that the Apple Watch Series 3 is the best wearable the U.S. technology firm has ever made".

The S4 chip includes a 64-bit dual-core processor that offers up to double performance compared to previous models.

Another new feature that has been introduced to Series 4 is the ability to detect a fall.

Two other health features, the fall detection and low heart rate alerts, only kick on when you experience those issues, so I wasn't able to test them for myself by falling over or slowing my heart rate to a crawl. Apple claims the Watch Series 4 will still run for 18 hours in everyday use, while workout tracking will be possible for as many as six hours. Thee user places a finger on the Watch's digital crown, so that a tiny electrical signal can be sent through the body by one sensor and received and measured by the other. It delivers an alert and calls emergency services if the user doesn't move for one minute after a fall, Williams said. Apple has designed some new watchOS faces that can display as many as eight "complications" at once, including combinations of different time zones, pictures of close friends or family that users can tap to quickly message, watchOS' activity rings, music, heart rate, air quality, UV index, weather, and much more.

Hurricane Florence grows to Category 4; evacuations ordered
The overall track remains consistent with a potential landfall from Wilmington, North Carolina to Nags Head, North Carolina. Storm surge and hurricane watches may be issued Tuesday morning for portions of southeastern USA states, the NHC said.

United Kingdom pricing for Series 4 to follow.

The GPS-only version will be $399 / £399 / AU$599 for the smallest version, launching in 26 territories, and cellular option will be $499 / £499 / $749W in 16 markets. For Series 4, pre-orders can be made from September 14 orders with shipments from September 21.

Finally the post also mentions various new sport band colors, as well as a new multicolor leather band and a gold stainless steel band.

It's good that Apple's managed to retain the form factor while making the screen bigger, and the mix of the fitness and more medically-aimed features will broaden the attraction of owning an Apple Watch.
