The Apple Watch Series 4 has been fully redesigned with new screens, new sizes, new speakers, and of course new stuff inside. There's a faster processor, Bluetooth 5, and a more accurate set of sensors. Dieter Bohn spent the past week testing the Watch Series 4 and, yes it is expensive, but everything is just better. Better screen, better health features, and better speed.

Will you upgrade?
Bean 14 днів тому
Upgrading suggests you have to place a value on what you currently have, so the question becomes 'do I have an older Apple watch and have to upgrade so it works for a bit, or do I own something else?'

I pretty much agree. I'm really interested in hearing if there is improved cellular connectivity. This has always been an issue with my series 3 LTE especially if my phone is not near me. If you find a review that shows this, please let us all know.

I am not sure what to do. I mean I did not use an apple watch before. But after the release of the apple watch series 4, I am starting to like it. People tell me it is not that necessary and expensive. What should I do?

I just want to say that the fall detection works like a champ...in fact it save my life! I fell hard and cracked my skull so much that that I needed 36 staples in my head.......note I had multiple skull fractures prior to this.....( I have a T.B.I.) I was hurt so bad I couldn’t even get my bearings ro think where one will be.....I didn’t have to do a thing! My wrist vibrated and said fall detected,calling emergency services in 5,4,3,2,1. And boom I am on a 911 call! So 5seconds not a minute.....the blood was pouring from my head.....I couldn’t even think straight to do anything....I,e. Mess with trying to make a call etc. Yeah. I. Would not be here if it wasn’t for the watch.......because I have the watch I can continue to live ALONE. The watch expensive? Are you kidding me? Price Life Alert or another Help I’ve fallen and can’t get up”.......that is way more expensive in the long run..... This watch is BOMB,!!!!!

Good Lord, to be selling fall detection is absurd. To be selling all this heart rate stuff in the name of some new way to be healthy is completely absurd, too. Just go running and eat well. Ridiculous.

The very best potential of this would be to have Siri or Google work well. You’d truly have a portable data source at voice command. But it doesn’t work well. That’s a crushing blow. Took mine back.

Honest question: Have you noticed or heard if the Watch 4 glass face is less durable than the series 3? I swear to you, despite caring for it like it's a soap bubble, my month-old 4 has more micro-scratches on its face than a 3 that's been through a year of workouts and accidental contact with things. I'm concerned that part of the Watch's radical redesign was gimping the material quality to cut costs. Wouldn't be the first time Apple did that :(

I bought the watch for my wife and neither my engineer on the boat me or my wife could get it to sync.. eventually it did then the battery life would only last 10-12 hours plus to top it of she slipped the bath and caught the watch on a tile and shattered the screen and now has to fly to london from italy to have someone look at it although she willow have to pay 326 pounds to have the screen replaced. basically apple HAVE NOT MADE IT CLEAR how fragile this watch is. my garmin and fit bit work better. apple really need to sort out there policy on breakages as to replace a screen is the same price as new one plus to sync and follow instructions was a nightmare

I really like your review. I just bought the series 4 stainless steel. However, the battery life STINKS! My fitbit Versa did everything I needed. Answering calls, music, apps and all that. I even got the fitbit scale. LOVE IT. The Battery life on the Fitbit Versa is 4 DAYS! apple watch is 18 hours? that is NOT a good feature. The battery life of the apple watch was the only thing really stopping me from buying it in the first place. But of course, I broke and got one anyway. I still like not having to charge my phone ever day ot two. FitBit VERSA is 4 or 5 days.

I would bet the fall detection works with the heart rate sensor. When you fall your heart rate spikes, but when acting it doesn’t. That may be the reason it wasn’t activating.

Great review! I have the Series 3 and still have to use my reading glasses on my 42mm to read the watch face I use the most often. During exercise, I'm not wearing (or carrying) my reading glasses, so sometimes I just have to take an educated guess and use the Force to figure out what the number is. In particular 5s, 3s, and 8s are a little tough to read without the glasses. Anyway, all of that to ask, with the Modular watch face and/or the running mode, are the numbers any larger on the Series 4 than those displayed on the Series 3? Thanks again for the great review!

To get more faces use you phone to find an image you like, take a screenshot and add the photo as your new watch face. I have mine playing a slide show so each time I look at the screen it’s a different photo. You can have up to 10 photos in the shuffle.

Fall detection is only on by default if you're over 65. You have to turn it on so that's probably why it's not working.

Haha, before Apple watch we had one watch may be $300 and we used it for years. Now it's $400 or more for every 2-3 years. Yes, it does more things than a watch but seriously this is too much technology in everyone's life. There should be a tech detox soon else it will be curtains for human race.

I really have to wonder-seriously, how devices like this will affect our health long term. Having all that electronic emission right on your skin seems really sketchy to me. We've already seen that there are serious concerns about holding cell phones up to your ear, close to your head, or in carrying them close to the skin, in a bra, etc. Not sure at all about something monitoring my heart rate, etc. Just sayin'

Bought my first Apple Watch (Series 4) a few weeks ago. This is the second one within that time period. The problem was the "fallen feature" kept coming on, when I was sitting, driving, walking. This replacement has been working for the last 18 hours. Hopefully, it will last.
