Apple Watch Series 4 hands-on

Apple Watch Series 4 Will Come in 40mm and 44mm Sizes Today at noon: Watch Apple's live stream as it shows off new iPhones and iPads

In its short existence, Apple Watch has gone from a niche wearable to become the most popular watch in the world.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the S4's built in electrocardiogram feature, which will save results to a PDF so they can be provided to the wearer's doctor.

Much speculation has surrounded when and how the tech giant would jump into the healthcare waters-and it did so with a large splash, unveiling the new Series 4 model and its federal de novo clearance at Apple's iPhone launch event in Cupertino, California.

With the bigger display on the Watch Series 4, Apple is tweaking the OS powering the product itself. The device's design has been modified a bit with a new display that runs from one edge to the other and curves to the side.

The Apple Watch 4 comes with an OLED panel which covers 30% more than its predecessors.

Apple is going all in on the health benefits of the Watch in Series 4.

Apple Watch Series 4 Will Come in 40mm and 44mm Sizes
Apple announces Watch 4, will come with ECG, Fall detection and more

The guts of the device received an update that promises to produce two times faster performance.

Two other health features, the fall detection and low heart rate alerts, only kick on when you experience those issues, so I wasn't able to test them for myself by falling over or slowing my heart rate to a crawl.

Apple Watches were already capable wrist-worn heart-rate monitors, but the Series 4 has some new tricks in that regard.

A back composed of ceramic and crystal improves cell reception, he said. Williams stated this is the first ECG product available over the counter, directly to the customer. To use the ECG, you just tap the Digital Crown. The display is 30 per cent larger than Watch Series 3, packed in the same case size.

Apple stressed its devotion to data privacy, saying all health information gathered is encrypted on the smartwatch to be shared only as users see fit. Apple even brought the American Heart Association's president and practicing cardiologist Ivor Benjamin on stage to tout the feature and its ability to evaluate your heart and find risks to possible heart issues. It now comes with haptic feedback. The Digital Crown has been re-engineered for more accurate control of apps, and the speaker is now 50 percent louder, " he said. This allows signals to pass from the front and the back to improve Global Positioning System and LTE. There's no word on the India availability of the new Apple Watch Series 4. The default watch face, for example, now displays more complications (read: widgets), than ever before. The Watch Series 4 will be available in some countries starting September 21, and global availability will follow later this year. It seems like overkill if you're young, health and athletic, but it could be an extremely valuable feature for the elderly - or clumsy. The modular design has also been revamped to allow for more useful stats from various apps to be shown. You can glance at your fitness progress, calendar or flight plans. There are also polished and space black versions available with stainless steel. There's one for fire, water and vapor that look really lovely.

Apple Watch Series 3 now starts at just £279 for the 38 millimetre option without cellular functionality.
