What’s in­side the new Ap­ple Watch?

Let’s find out how the tech gi­ant’s lat­est smart time­piece works

How It Works - - TECHNOLOGY -

Speak up

This larger speaker is 50 per cent louder than the pre­vi­ous model and uses a sil­i­cone gas­ket to keep the wa­ter out.

Cas­ing

The cas­ing has been re­designed to be thin­ner and more ac­ces­si­ble, so your new Watch is eas­ier to re­pair if it breaks.

Dis­play

This OLED dis­play ex­tends close to the edge of the glass, and the deep blacks blend right into the back­ground.

“It’s got smart new health fea­tures that are sure to help save lives”

Dig­i­tal crown

This dial now clicks slightly as you turn it for im­proved feed­back, and you touch it to use the ECG sys­tem.

Mother­board

This sin­gle board holds al­most all the Watch’s ‘brains’. The S4 chip is twice as fast as the Ap­ple Watch Series 3.

Pad­ding

This plate sits in­side the back case and ab­sorbs heat from the mother­board to stop it reach­ing your wrist.

Heart sen­sors

The back panel con­tains the wire­less charg­ing ring, as well as the elec­tric ring that touches your wrist to en­able ECG mea­sure­ments. The new screen is big­ger, which has al­lowed Ap­ple to dis­play a huge amount of use­ful in­for­ma­tion on the watch face

Bat­tery

The bat­tery in the new Watch is ac­tu­ally smaller than the old one, but it still man­ages around 18 hours be­tween charges.

Tap­tic en­gine

This lit­tle box uses mag­nets to cre­ate the feel­ing that the Watch is tap­ping you on your wrist when you get a no­ti­fi­ca­tion.
