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.
