Apple Watch updated to Series 4
> if you feel the Apple Watch is just too small to navigate properly, you’re in luck. That’s because the new version of the Watch – Series 4 – now has a bigger screen, with the display reaching closer to the edges.
The case sizes have been bumped up to 40mm and 44mm, leaving more breathing room for apps. Apple says the screens are 32% and 35% larger than the previous 38mm and 42mm versions, while also managing to be thinner.
Elsewhere, the Digital Crown has been upgraded to give you a haptic buzz when it’s turned. The idea here is to make scrolling through apps easier and more responsive. Next to the Digital Crown, the speaker is 50% louder than before. The mic has been relocated to the other side of the device to reduce echoes – good for calls and Siri.
Inside, there’s a new S4 chip with twice the performance of its predecessor, and the health detection features have been improved – though the electrocardiogram capability is only available in the US at the time of writing.
Prices start at £399.
