Apple has released its “Apple Watch Nike+ Series 4” across the US, Australia, parts of Asia and in other countries, keeping its availability limited at retail stores, the media reported.
This year Apple watch is different from the last year Apple Watch and one of the biggest and noticeable change is the screen size. The screen of the Apple Watch Series 4 is 30% larger than its predecessor and has enough space to fit the date, weather information and six other pieces of information on the display in addition to the time as part of the colourful new “Infograph” watch face.
For users who think that’s too much – and there are many of them – the display can be changed to simpler designs. And although the redesigned watch case with more rounded corners is now longer and wider, it still fits comfortably on the wrist.
The Apple Watch Nike+ Series 4 comes with almost same features as the original Apple Watch Series 4, but differ in certain aspects such as pre-loaded apps and watch faces.
Watch Nike+ Series 4, has been priced between $399 and $499 in the US, the variants of “Watch Nike+” sport new features like a larger screen, thinner body, a ECG reader (currently US-only), fall detection and more.
“The early pre-orders of the Watches are already being delivered to customers, with pick-ups available in stores in limited quantities,” MacRumors reported late on Friday. “Apple Watch Nike+” sports four styles with band-variants in 40mm and 44mm sizes with cellular and Wi-Fi+GPS only model options.
The company claims that the Apple Watch Series 4 with watchOS 5 brings advanced activity and communications features, along with revolutionary health capabilities, including a new accelerometer and gyroscope.
They are able to detect hard falls and an electrical heart rate sensor that can take an electrocardiogram (ECG) using the new ECG app, which has been granted a De Novo classification by the FDA. Apple plans to get similar regulatory approvals in other regions from respective government agencies.
