Running the Numbers
Apple WATCH SERIES 4 $519 While staying true to its original design, this latest Apple Watch takes a leap forward when it comes to newly designed hardware, and software focused on connectivity and health.
The fourth-generation Apple Watch comes in 2 new sizes: 40 mm and 44 mm and features a significantly larger display (a third larger than the Apple 3) in a trimmed-down case with stylishly curved edges.
The 4 also takes a leap forward in the software department with watchOS 4, with auto-workout detection, activity sharing competitions and Walkie Talkie, which socially-minded runners should enjoy.
In terms of monitoring your overall health, the ability to take an ECG reading from your wrist stands out as one of the most impressive features of this latest Apple Watch edition. The 4 also analyzes your heart rhythms in the background and sends a notification if an irregular heart rhythm is detected. It can also alert you if your heart rate exceeds or falls below a specified threshold.
