When it comes to the world of smartwatches, the Apple Watch Series has contributed a lot to the market. An Apple Watch is like an extension of your smartphone that you can wear on your wrist. Moreover, the sleek and smart design makes Apple Watches a few of the most stylish products from the wide list of smartwatches in India. Recently in September, Apple introduced the world to its new and improved Apple Watch Series 4. The watch has finally up for sale in India in two sizes – 40mm and 44mm. Interestingly, the company has made a lot of exciting changes when it comes to the design and features of the smartwatch.
But, like every other Apple product, even the Watch Series 4 will cost you a fortune. The basic variant of the series is priced at Rs 40,900, while the high-end variant of the watch that comes with GPS and cellular connectivity is priced at Rs 52,900. The sky-high price can be one major drawback that might stop you from buying this watch. However, there are also some key reasons why you should buy this watch. Let’s take a look.
Edge to Edge Display
All the previous Apple Watches until now have come with a square-shaped display. However, the Apple Watch Series 4 comes with a new edge-to-edge display while maintaining its square design. The edge-to-edge design adds rounded corners to the watch and offers a 30 per cent larger screen space. Additionally, even though the display has gotten bigger, the size of the watch remains the same. In fact, the latest Apple Watch is thinner compared to its predecessor.
Apple has redesigned the Digital Crown to offer the feeling of a real crown when you use it. When you rotate the crown, you will feel tapping which gives it a mechanical effect. This latest feature has a more interactive and responsive interface while you are using the smartwatch.
The Watch Series 4 comes with a feature that has never been seen on smartwatches before. For the first time, a smartwatch will be able to take an ECG. The watch comes with a built-in heart rate sensor and electrodes in the digital crown. When you place your finger on the crown, it will calculate and provide you with the readings in 30 seconds. The ECG feature will read your heart rate and display it in the health app.
This is another new feature that can be of great help during an emergency. When you fall or slip, the Apple Watch Series 4 will detect the movement and will immediately offer you an option to call an emergency contact. The watch is built with accelerometer and gyroscope which will analyze if you have had a hard fall. Furthermore, if you do not respond to the alert message in 60 seconds, the watch will automatically send a message to your emergency contact with your current location.
Apple has improved a great deal even in the audio department. The speaker on the watch is twice as loud as the previous Apple Watch models, which means you will get 50 per cent more sound on your new Apple Watch. This loudspeaker can be of great help in noisy areas or when you are using the walkie-talkie and podcast functions.
If you are planning to buy a smartwatch, the Apple series 4 is one of the best top trending smartwatches. The watch has a lot to offer and at the same time looks classy on the wearer’s hand. Moreover, with a wide range of health features, this watch will also act as your personal physician. If you already own an Apple Watch and are wondering if the latest addition is worth the upgrade, then it most definitely is.
