Fitbit Stock Is Falling and Apple's to Blame

Our clearest look yet at the Apple Watch Series 4 Apple event expected to reveal 3 new iPhones, changes to Apple Watch

The new version, called Apple Watch Series 4, has larger screens that fit into the same overall watch sizes, and new health sensors and apps such as an electrocardiogram, or ECG, monitor.

The Apple Watch Series 4 has a handful of new watch faces to take advantage of the increase in screen real estate, including one with photos of users' contacts that can be tapped to quickly make a call.

While its design might look similar to the previous three generations, the Series 4 is thinner and has a more than 30 per cent larger display, compared to its predecessors.

Running on all new watchOS 5, Apple Watch Series 4 is available in GPS and GPS + Cellular models.

As for the new Apple Watch Series 4, the Cupertino company has yet to announce its availability and pricing for Malaysia just yet.

Apple Watch Series 4 includes built-in heart rate sensor, GPS, barometric altimeter, accelerometer, Bluetooth, and Siri voice responses.

Apple Chief Operating Officer Jeff Williams called Apple Watch "the intelligent guardian for your health".

The Apple Watch, which also has 18-hour all-day battery life (including 6 hours of outdoor workout time), will be available for pre-order on September 14 and go on sale September 21.

Prices for the aluminum Apple Watch Series 4 with an elastomer sport band will begin at $399 for the 40-mm model and $429 for the 44-mm model with Global Positioning System.




The watch will be available in 3 aluminum finishes: silver, gold, space gray.

Thankfully, there's now a gold Milanese Loop band option, allowing you to coordinate flawlessly with your new Series 4.

There are new heart rate notifications as well.

He highlighted the health benefits of such a device by features such as automatically notifying users you if it detects they have an elevated heart rate. The device will be available for $399, with the cellular model selling for $499. Williams says those features will be available this year. The watch face has been redesigned too, with eight customisable areas.

Apple introduced Apple Watch Series 4 on Wednesday during its "Gather Round" media event. Apple even brought the American Heart Association's president and practicing cardiologist Ivor Benjamin on stage to tout the feature and its ability to evaluate your heart and find risks to possible heart issues.

It can also detect falls and will alert emergency services if it fails to detect movement 10 minutes after one has occurred.

In fact, the FDA's letters to Apple classifying the watch's software as a Class II device-dated September 11 (PDF), the day before the launch event-state that the ECG app is not intended for use by people under age 22. Pre-orders of the smartwatch starts on Friday Sept 14.

"The killer app for most who have been holding out has been longer battery life, something that doesn't require daily charging, and possibly a larger screen to make it easier to type on", he said.
