The Apple Watch Series 4 came out in September 2018 but still hasn’t lost its popularity, and the price also remains high. But it’s all for a reason, by putting the watch in your hand you can immediately feel all the comfort and quality that Apple has put into this product. In this article, we will review the main features of the Apple Watch 4, its strengths and weaknesses.
Design and options
The Apple Watch 4 comes in several sizes, 40mm and 44mm, and it is significantly larger than the previous version of the product. This will become especially noticeable if you look closely at the watch screen, which has become wider. When creating this model, the developers were able to achieve a frameless display, which also added diameters to the screen.
The materials of the case offered a choice: aluminum or steel, and the main controls are still touch screen, while the right side is located a single button and a wheel Digital Crown, both multifunction.
On the back of the device, there are functions such as a heart rate sensor, diodes for ECG recording, and a description of the parameters of this model.
Traditionally, Apple always installs new chipsets on new products, and the apple watch series 4 was no exception. This watch has a new processor that makes it much more powerful than the previous version.
The sound on the new devices is also much clearer, thanks to the fact that the speaker and the microphone feedback receiver are now located on different sides of the case.
Another hardware difference is that the Haptic Engine’s haptic feedback is now implemented in the Digital Crown wheel as well, and clicking on it is immediately responsive.
Other features of the Apple Watch 4:
- S4 processor chipset, W3 coprocessor
- Remote Siri control, camera, music, and video playback
- Time of operation on a single charge – 18 h
- Navigation GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, QZSS
- Resolution 368 × 448 (44 mm), 324 × 394 (40 mm)

The 4th generation watch had the latest watchOS 5 operating system at the time of release. This version gives its users not only additional functions but also fascinating watchfaces.
To change the dial picture from those already on your watch, all you have to do is swipe to the right or the left. And if you want to upload your own, you need to click on the Force Touch function and all available options will open in front of you.
