  • Swim-proof;
  • Louder speaker;

Redesigned UI

One of the most important changes that Apple made to Watch Series 4 was to its UI. The modular watch face is now packed with more detailed complications such as the ones developed by third-party companies like Lifesum and MLB. In addition, the popular Breathe app is getting its own face.

ECG Support

Apple Watch Series 4 supports ECG. This is a big advancement in wearable technology because it allows the smartwatch to measure the electrical activity of a heart. This means that Watch Series 4 owners will be able to take the ECG results to their doctor for analysis. To make things even better, Watch Series 4 owners will only need to place their finger on the digital crown in order to perform an ECG which is a simple process.
