Apple Keynote 2018: Apple Watch Series 4 Revealed

With the redesigned Apple Watch Series 4, it will automatically detect if you've fallen and ask you if you want to send an Emergency SOS.

The third feature is made possible by the electrocardiogram on the back. All this data, Apple says, will be protected, as the information is encrypted on the devices and in the cloud. The microphone is now on the opposite side, away from the speaker to avoid echo and ensures better clarity.

The Apple Watch has been increasing in prowess as a fitness device over the years, bringing in ever-more sophisticated tracking for your runs and cycles, connecting to separate gym equipment and monitoring you through more activities. If you fall over, you'll get a notification asking if you need to call for assistance. As you rotate the crown, a small haptic motor will simulate clicks.

Inside, you'll find a new S4 processor that has dual-core processing power and should offer two-times better performance than the previous model.

He was steady throughout the cold and drizzly final round and had a one-stroke lead when he got to the 18th tee. Billy Horschel and Xander Schauffele were tied one shot back and Rory McIlroy finished in fifth at 18-under.

How the Series 4 (right) stacks up to the Series 3 (left) The Series 4 feels larger, but it's also slimmer than the Series 3, which feels bulbous by comparison. Cellular reception has also been optimized for clearer signals, and fewer dropped or missed calls.

Apple Watch Series 4 can detect if you have a low heart rate (which can be a sign of serious health problems), and it can now screen your heart rhythms for AFib.

Apple studied natural falls and discovered repeatable patterns which can be analysed and diagnosed as a fall by the Series 4 chip. Apple shipped 4.7 million watches in that period, beating rivals like Xiaomi Corp. and Fitbit, according to IDC. You'll still have to charge your watch every night, even if you upgrade to the latest Apple Watch model. It works just like the Karia Mobile device and is sanctioned by the American Heart Association and approved by the FDA. According to Apple, the watch faces are created to interact with the screen with features that bounce off the sides. It is backed by 16GB of storage - as much as on a GPS + Cellular Series 3 model, but twice as much as on the Series 2 or GPS Series 3 models. Pricing starts at US$399 with Global Positioning System, and $499 for Global Positioning System plus Cellular.

The watch will be available in 3 aluminum finishes: silver, gold, space gray. There are also stainless steel options that go up to $1199. Several bands also showed up in the links, including Indigo Craie Orange Double Tour Band, Pure Platinum Black Sport Band, Summit White Sport Loop, Anthracite Black Sport Band, Black Sport Loop, Seashell Sport Loop, and Pink Sand Sport Band. There is no word on the price differences in the stainless designs, but you can bet that they will be significantly more pricey.
