Apple Watch Series 4 review: Small tweaks make a big impact

 

Earlier Apple Watches were impressive wearables, but the new Series 4 is the strongest argument yet for wearing a smartwatch. And that's not just because of bigger, edge-to-edge screen or its improved fitness tracking either. The combination of a more...

Bigger and improved screen ; Long battery life ; Much-improved performance ; Accurate step tracking ; Walkie-Talkie conversations are a blast ; New heart features could save lives ; Talking to Siri is easier

More expensive than ever ; Transferring LTE service can be tricky ; ECG feature isn't ready yet ; Some watch faces feel like information overload ; Rival watches have even better battery life

I have my gripes, certainly. I'd prefer the kind of battery life we get out of rival smartwatches, to say nothing of always-on displays. The Apple Watch Series 4 doesn't do everything I want it to. That said, the Series 4 does everything it sets out to...

Apple Watch Series 4 review: ECG, and a lot of refinements

 

The Apple Watch is bigger-screened, faster, and makes some key health upgrades.

The Apple Watch Series 4 offers a larger, crisp display that shows more with less bezel, super fast speed and a louder speaker. It adds high and low heart-rate detection, fall detection with SOS trigger and an FDA-cleared ECG app for more detailed...

Starting prices are higher than last year. Battery life still won't last past two days. Watch face options are still very limited in choice and function. It only works with iPhones.

The Apple Watch Series 4 is the fastest, most connected and best overall smartwatch around, but its battery life and watch face options often fall short of the competition.

Apple Watch Series 4

 

The Apple Watch Series 4 delivers a category-leading smartwatch experience with more advanced apps and health features than the competition.

Large screen. Good call quality. ECG capability. Fall detection. WatchOS 5 brings numerous improvements. Stylish.

Expensive. Battery life remains unchanged. No built-in sleep tracking.

Bottom Line: The Apple Watch Series 4 delivers a category-leading smartwatch experience with more advanced apps and health features than the competition.

Apple Watch 4 review: the best gets better

 

Better screen, better health features, and better speed.

Great battery life ; Huge, beautiful screen ; Health-tracking features, not just fitness

Siri is still unreliable ; No always-on screen option ; Complication options can be confusing

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 new faster processor, Bluetooth 5, and a more accurate set of sensors. Dieter Bohn spent the past week testing the...

Apple Watch Series 4 Review: This is the one

 

Has there been a learning experience for Apple quite like the Apple Watch? Back when the original model launched in 2015, there was - not unfairly - a sense that Apple itself wasn't quite sure what exactly it should do. Now, as the Apple Watch Series 4...

Mesmerizing new display ; Fast and smooth performance ; Health features could be game-changers ; Battery life hasn't suffered

Siri still falls short ; Expensive

Apple Watch Series 4 Review

 

The new Series 4 looks a lot like earlier Apple Watches, but it completely rearranges the components inside the watch, takes care of your health better, and best of all, this new watch is very, very fast…

Impressive, big display ; Very comfortable to wear ; Battery life exceeds expectations ; Great new watchfaces ; Feels very fast ; Calls are louder than before and easier to hear ; Very accurate heart rate tracking ; Taptic Engine is still incredible ;...

Pricey and only works with iPhones ; Siri is still not great ; Automatic workout detection is a hit and miss ; No always-on display option ; No way to see individual activity summary on the watch ; No native sleep tracking

Apple Watch Series 4 review: Best for iPhone owners, but not the best smartwatch

 

The new Apple Watch Series 4 is available today and this new wearable from Apple may have been the best new product launched at the event and couple of weeks ago in California. The Apple Watch Series 4 has been \redesigned and reengineered\" with a focus

✓Expanded viewable area \ ✓Light weight \ ✓Solid battery life \ ✓Gorgeous display with stunning animations for watch faces

✕No advanced sleep tracking \ ✕No always-on display option \ ✕No support for third party watch faces \ ✕Swipe to switch watch faces is annoying

The Apple Watch Series 3 I had included LTE, but after using it for about 30 minutes over the past year I could never justify the $10+ monthly fee again. It's not the minor additional cost, but the principle that I have to pay such a fee for a service tha

Apple Watch Series 4 Review: The Best Smartwatch, Now Even Better

 

Apple made the best smartwatch even better with sophisticated health sensors and a beautiful screen.

Big, beautiful display ; Advanced health sensors ; Faster processing power ; Useful Raise to Speak Siri

Expensive

Since the day I bought the first Apple Watch, I’ve believed the reason for its existence is health. Notifications are useful, and the watch can be a stylish accessory, but those are secondary to the information it can give us about our bodies, right...
