Look back the Apple Watch series 4 – The latest model
Apple Watch Series 4 officially debuted on September 21, 2018. It’s packed with new features with prices starting at $399.
The series 4 is powered by Apple’s brand new S4 chip which is up to twice as fast as 2017’s S3, which means snappier performance for everything you do.
Apple Watch Series 4 is packed with new OLED display. It stretches to the edges of the watch to provide over 30 per cent more space, which means larger apps and larger faces with more room for complications. The new display uses a technology called LTPO to improve power efficiency. So, despite its size, it won’t sap Apple Watch’s tiny battery.
The series 4’s thickness is 10.7mm and it boasts a new Digital Crown that uses haptic feedback to deliver a precise, click-like feel as you scroll. It features a new speaker that’s 50 per cent louder than previous models.
The most outstanding feature of Series 4 is that the new model will be capable of delivering on-demand electrocardiograms. With just a tap of the Digital Crown, it can read your heart’s electrical signals and produce an ECG waveform in just 30 seconds.
The Apple Watch Series 4 is an incredible advancement for Apple Watch.
Expectations for Apple Watch series 5
The Apple Watch Series 4 was a major step forward for the industry-dominating wearable. However, tech moves forward fast, and we’re already wondering what to expect from the Series 5.
There have now been three consecutive launch events in September of 2016, 2017 and 2018, so it’s predicted that the company to follow a similar suit for its next device and the Apple series 5 may be announced in September 2019.
The Apple Watch Series 5 will come with a bespoke S5 processor chip that offers theoretical speed boosts over the previous generation- but this won’t be apparent in real-world usage because the Series 4 will still be able to run all the available apps and the current OS with ease.
A slightly thinner design
The Series 4 in 44mm does feel thinner because it’s larger, but it’s still a thicker device than some other smartwatches money can buy. Apple may be able to trim it down a touch further too by including smaller processing tech and perhaps a new battery tech.
Even more advanced health sensors
The Apple Watch’s ECG sensor was and still is, a huge deal; by turning the Watch into an FDA-cleared AFib detector, Apple leapt ahead in the race for health wearables. Now it needs to keep leaping. With Series 5, we’d like to see more health sensors added.
