Apple Watch Series 4 GPS 40mm Space Gray Aluminum Case with Sport Band (Black) MU662ZP/A
The Apple Watch Series 4 features the same general squarish look
as its predecessors and similar price points
but with a considerably larger display thinner body faster processor
louder speaker and the list goes on.
There are also some special software tricks that make this
the best SmartWatch on the market.
The biggest update ever made to the Apple watch is here.
Larger OLED Display
The first thing I noticed upon powering on the phone and setting it up
was the 30% larger OLED display that looks beautiful
It’s a big difference if you’re coming from an older Apple Watch
The rounded corners help make this a wearable feel even more modern
The Apple Watch Series 4 is also noticeably thinner specifically
with the heart rate sensor on the rear it really doesn’t protrude much
at all from the rear of the case.
I would recommend most people select the 44 millimeter model as
I have pretty darn small skinny wrists and it doesn’t appear that large
there is a 40 millimeter model that’s a little smaller
and a little cheaper but the 44 millimeter model should fit most people
The digital crown now has haptic feedback so every time you turn it
you get this a gentle ticking vibration that feels fantastic
and just like a traditional mechanical watch.
Improved Voice Quality
The microphone has also been moved away from the speaker
to the other side of the watch which should help improve voice quality
when making calls and talking to Siri and Siri does it require
you to say hey Siri before speaking a voice command anymore
it doesn’t work all the time but it’s a neat feature
in terms of watch faces there are some new ones
like a fire water and vapor watch face.
Apple has actually used special cameras to record the motion
of fire water and vapor and turn that footage
into super realistic animations that look great
on this wearable
But my favorite watch face is actually the info graph
as you can pack this thing full of different complications
like a world clock weather, music heart rate battery indicator
and activity tracker apparently.
Some people don’t like all of the colors in the corners
but I sure do the bigger display is really what allows this watch face
to thrive and allow you to pack it full of so many different functions
I think if you spend several hundred dollars on a wearable
it should be functional so this is the watch face for me
There is an ECG or electrocardiogram monitor inside the series for watch
that will let it detect irregular heart rhythms
but it’s not quite ready for Showtime yet.
Apple says it’s coming later this year.
The Apple Watch Series 4 can also now detect Falls so if you fall
and you need help it will automatically call 911
I want to mention is the new 64-bit s4 dual-core processor
that’s under the hood delivers up to twice the performance of the s3
while keeping the same long battery life.
some in my testing the watch is actually pretty darn fast
I remember back in the Apple Watch was first released
and it was just painfully slow at loading applications
it’s come a long ways over the years.
You factor in the performance improvements bigger display
and new watch faces and you have one heck of a wearable
It’s not cheap it starts at $500 for the 40 millimeter model but there’s really
no competition aside from an older series Apple watch.
