Apple has introduced the fourth generation of its Apple Watch, the Watch Series 4 in an event at Steve Jobs Theatre, Apple Campus, US.

Apple Watch Series 4 will be available in aluminum and stainless-steel finishes in both GPS and GPS + Cellular configurations.

And the new dynamic watch faces positively dazzle on the large new display.

Today, Apple unveiled all of its new devices for 2018.

New watch faces have also made their way to the Apple Watch Series 4.

Novak Djokovic says he respects Third-seeded Juan Martin del Potro , who he faces in the US Open final at New York City on Sunday. A better start for Nishikori in the second set saw him level with the holder of 13 Grand Slam Titles at 2-2. "I'm sad for him".

Apple has revealed its latest wearable, the Apple Watch Series 4.

The crown is now haptic, and it's got a really nice click to it as you spin - it gives a really lovely feel as you're using it to go through the Watch 4 and feels far more like a mechanical device.

Spending a few hundred bucks on the new Apple Watch isn't a small commitment, especially when you factor in the cost of an LTE model which comes with a monthly charge to keep it connected.

Apple's S4 chipset powers the Series 4, and includes a 64-bit dual-core processor which delivers up to twice the performance of previous chips.

New heart-rate tracking, including a new low-heart-rate notification and atrial-fibrillation detection. Battery life is unchanged at 18 hours, though outdoor workout time has increased to six hours, Apple says. 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. If you're immobile for more than one minute, it will automatically make a call to emergency services for you.

Speaking of breathing, Apple has taken its health features up a notch, including a new watch face that guides users through a deep breathing exercise. It can also alert the user if the heart rate exceeds or falls below a specified threshold.

The Apple Watch Series 4 has a new curved display that is 30 per cent larger than the former versions, with 40mm and 44mm models replacing the previous sizes. However, it is worth noting that Apple has made the move to more energy-efficient, LTPO OLED screens for the Series 4. The stainless series will come in space black, polished, and gold.

"Identifying a fall may sounds like a trivial thing but it takes a lot of data", Williams said.
