The Series 4 is the first major design overhaul of the Watch since its debut more than three years ago.

This is a very revealing leak that basically tells us everything asides from the Apple Watch Series 4 price point and release date.

And the new dynamic watch faces positively dazzle on the large new display.

While I only spent a few minutes wearing it so far, the advances made in the latest version of Apple's wearable device might be the best example of why Apple has such an advantage when it comes to smartwatches, especially compared to the competition. The new version has roughly the same body size as last year's Series 3, but has more than 30% more area for content with its 1.9-inch display.

Apple has finally launched the Watch 4 today at their event.

On the chassis of the wearable, there's a new Digital Crown that's outlined in red (rather than being entirely red) as well a completely redesigned speaker system which is now 50% louder and heavily reduces echo.

Spending a few hundred bucks on the new Apple Watch isn't a small commitment, especially when you factor in the cost of an LTE model which comes with a monthly charge to keep it connected.

But it was new health capabilities that are the focus of the new watch series, including a new feature called Fall Detection.

The Apple Watch Series 4's advanced heart-monitoring technology called electrocardiogram (EKG) has also received clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration, meaning it can be used as a medical device.

Now, once a serviceable veteran has outlived his entry-level deal he nearly immediately becomes more of a burden than an asset. Jerry Richardson bought the Carolina Panthers for US$200 million in 1993, and he just sold them for US$2.2 billion.

Apple Watch Series 4 sends the user an alert after a fall, which the can either dismiss or start a call to emergency services.

"Fitness is at the core of Apple Watch, encouraging you to be more active by closing your rings and tracking your workouts", said Williams. Now, Apple Watch users can take ECG of their heart anytime from their wrist and technically making it the first ECG device offered at the counter. Apple Watch can now monitor your heart rhythm.

The Apple Watch Series 4's battery life has the same 18-hour battery life as its predecessors, even with the enhancements.

There are a few new watch faces designs, but they all seem too noisy for my tastes.

The new software from Apple bring a host of new features that will radically change how owners use the product. Following lots of spiel about how Apple Watch has "redefined what a watch can do for you", Apple announced that they are taking the Apple Watch "to the next level" by unveiling Apple Watch 4.

There is a good chance that Apple will sell out of some models of the Apple Watch Series 4 this week, and into next.

Along with the three aluminium finishes anodised in silver, gold and space grey, Apple Watch Series 4 will also come in a gold stainless steel with matching Milanese band, joining the silver and space black stainless steel models.

Williams noted that all band colors and band styles fit any generation of the Apple Watch. Pre-orders of the smartwatch starts on Friday Sept 14.
