Apple unveils new Watch Series 4 with ECG sensor

Apple unveils new Watch Series 4 with ECG sensor”

New complications from Qantas and LifeSum are also available as well as new meditative "Breathe" visualizations and live action watchfaces featuring elemental actions like vapor or flames.

In its short existence, Apple Watch has gone from a niche wearable to become the most popular watch in the world. The company sought and received US Food and Drug Administration de novo classification for both the atrial fibrillation monitoring feature and the electrocardiogram testing that's possible with the Series 4.

With the bigger display on the Watch Series 4, Apple is tweaking the OS powering the product itself. If you are planning to watch using an Apple TV, you must have a second- or third-generation device updated to 6.2 or later or a fourth-generation model with any software version.

Tropical Storm Gordon tracks toward central Gulf coast; landfall expected tonight
The storm was headed west-northwest at 17 miles per hour into the Gulf of Mexico and had maximum winds of 65 miles per hour . The hurricane center also is monitoring a tropical wave a few hundred miles south-southeast of the Cabo Verde Islands.

A standard Apple Watch Series 4 device, available in 24 regions, starting at $399.

Heartbeat reading can show your heart rate to your doctor to help detect any abnormality.

Speaking about its ECG support feature, Apple said Series 4 Watch will send notifications when the heart rate is way too low. And, in case the ease of use isn't enough, the ECG app has been granted clearance by the FDA - the first device of its kind to receive such a distinction. The back of the device is now made out of a ceramic material, which allows for better reception for the Global Positioning System and cellular radios. All the new watch bands work with older Apple Watch models as well.

Tropical Storm Gordon brings hurricane warning to Gulf Coast
Geo Rodriguez made a decision to go for a walk on Hollywood Beach, north of Miami, on Monday morning and got caught in the storm. After moving northwest, the next landfall for Gordon will likely be somewhere in southeastern Louisiana or southern Mississippi.

In addition, Apple said WatchOS 5, which was unveiled at the WWDC event in June, will be available on September 17. The modular face can now surface more detailed information from stocks and healths apps. You can glance at your fitness progress, calendar or flight plans. It also comes in stainless steel: polished, space black, and gold stainless.

It also comes with a new watch face and new inputs, such as contacts, for one-tap access. There's one for fire, water and vapor that look really attractive. However, it is worth noting that Apple has made the move to more energy-efficient, LTPO OLED screens for the Series 4. It is rumored to feature a larger display, faster processor, improved battery life and more. Either way, though, it's a pretty fast chip and will dramatically boost performance, for instance Apple says apps will launch about 30 per cent faster.

Another new feature on the Apple Watch will detect when a user has fallen, and the device will automatically generate an alert to initiate a call to emergency services. For now, CNET has posted a video of their hands-on, comparing the Series 4 side-by-side with the Series 3 and it makes the bezel reduction all the more obvious. Cellular models with aluminum cases and a sport band will start at $499 for a 40-mm Watch and $529 for the 44-mm version. The series 4 will be available for pre-order on Friday and will ship to consumers on September 21.
