However, for some reason, Apple seems to underplay its battery life - when it first claimed 18 hours on a single charge, we found it would last a little longer. Let us dive into the matter. Google and its WearOS has been hamstrung due in part to a lack of advancement from companies like Qualcomm, which, after two years, has finally announced a new processor for WearOS devices. And if you compare the new 44mm model, it's 32 percent larger than the 42mm Apple Watch Series 3.

The screen size, for instance, has been increased and stretched out to all four corners of the display.

The Series 4 is thinner than the Series 3, but the screen is 30 percent larger. The peak brightness level of 1000 nits is also being retained.

The most noticeable change coming to the Series 4 is the redesign of the chassis. Watch OS5 is available September 17.

Pricing has gone up a little from the Series 3.

Much speculation has surrounded when and how the tech giant would jump into the healthcare waters-and it did so with a large splash, unveiling the new Series 4 model and its federal de novo clearance at Apple's iPhone launch event in Cupertino, California.

Topol noted that a similar product - AliveCor's Kardiaband, a band for the Apple Watch - offers EKGs and received FDA clearance past year. The microphone is now on the opposite side, away from the speaker to avoid echo and ensures better clarity. There is also a Hermes Edition in addition to new Nike+ bands.

The watch will also send you notifications if you're heart rate is too low as while usually a good thing, that could be a sign of something serious, Williams. The complications have been enhanced to be more precise and informative.

Williams says the new watch can detect when you've taken a hard fall, and automatically call emergency services if you don't respond to the alert.

"Fitness is at the core of Apple Watch, encouraging you to be more active by closing your rings and tracking your workouts", said Williams. On top of that monitoring capability, Apple augmented the optical heartbeat sensor of the Series 4 Watch with an electrical heartbeat sensor that's capable of producing detailed electrocardiograms of the user's heartbeat. Williams says those features will be available this year.

Apple Watch Series 4 with Global Positioning System will be available in 26 markets at the time of launch for $399 for the Global Positioning System model and $499 for the cellular model.

Apple Watch Series 4 sports a new design, thanks to an edge-to-edge display and a new Digital Crown with haptics. With a few hardware-related exceptions, of course - the ECG app, for example, will land only on the Series 4.

The Apple Watch 4 comes with an OLED panel which covers 30% more than its predecessors. For those already with Apple Watches, expect this big software update on September 17.
