Series 4 of Apple’s smartwatch: bigger watch face.

 

Series 4 of Apple’s smartwatch has been given a bit of an upgrade. Not only is it bigger, with the sizes bumped up from 30mm and 42mm to 40mm and 44mm cases, giving you a bigger display, but its health capabilities have also been given a boost.

There is fall detection and SOS alerts, and with the new ECG capabilities, the watch will also be able to keep an eye on your heart’s health. That capability will be rolled out starting with the US. The good news is that despite the bigger watch face, the straps you may have bought for previous versions will still fit.
