The new chipset is claimed to deliver up to 2 times faster & better performance over last year’s Apple Watch Series 3.
Further, there are next-gen accelerometer and gyroscope that enable the new Apple Watch to detect hard falls.
Apple has also provided an electrical heart rate sensor that is accompanied by the optical heart rate sensors to record an ECG using the new ECG app. This feature will be provided in the US later this year, though there isn’t any official word on its launch in India.
The Apple Watch Series 4 runs watchOS 5 out of the box and includes an improved speaker that is claimed to produce over 40% louder sound and is optimized for phone calls, Siri, and Walkie-Talkie.
Slight changes in the designs to bring better sound clarity to the device
Notably, the microphone on the Apple Watch Series 4 has been shifted to the right side — next to the new Digital Crown to drop the echo and provide better sound quality than the earlier models, Apple states. The new Digital Crown is now featured with haptic feedback.
The back panel on the Apple Watch Series 4 now has black ceramic and sapphire crystal. Adding to that, Apple says that the new Apple Watch model maintains the same all-day battery life.
