The Apple Watch Series 4 models sport larger screens that display over 30% more than the previous generation, Apple says.

Apple Watch Series 4 also has a new accelerometer and gyroscope that can detect falls.

And, perhaps most unusually, the Apple Watch Series 4 will also be created to detect whether the wearer has slipped, tripped, or fallen over, and will automatically alert emergency contacts.

Though the screens on Series 4 are larger, Apple said it made "minimal changes" to the case size; it's thinner and less total volume than Series 3.

A new 64-bit dual-core Apple S4 processor is equipped with a new GPU.

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.

FDA-approved, the Apple Watch Series 4 will monitor your heart in several different ways, including letting you know if your heart rate has dropped too low.

The Apple Watch Series 4 will be available from 21 September, with orders starting this Friday, 14 September on Apple.com for the United Kingdom, or here for the US.

"Apple Watch has become an intelligent guardian for your health", said Jeff Williams, COO, Apple. In terms of design, the latest Apple Watch Series 4 resembles the Series 3 except the near-edge-to-edge design new placement of its microphone for echo reduction. Prices start at $399 for the non-cellular aluminum models in space gray, silver and gold, and $499 for the non-cellular stainless steel models in silver, "polished graphite" and gold.

Heartbeat reading can show your heart rate to your doctor to help detect any abnormality. "With the app, users touch the Digital Crown and after 30 seconds, receive a heart rhythm classification", said Apple.

Apple Watch Series 3 now starts at just £279 for the 38 millimetre option without cellular functionality. The data is reliable enough to be used for medical purposes, although the feature won't be available until later this year.

Apple has introduced the fourth generation of its Apple Watch, the Watch Series 4 in an event at Steve Jobs Theatre, Apple Campus, US.

If you've been waiting for watchOS 5 final to arrive for your Apple Watch then you will be pleased to learn that it will be available on the 17th of September. In the video, you can also see some of the UI tweaks and cool new watch faces, like the one with colorful animated steam or water splashing around.

Apple also is introducing a significantly larger model alongside the iPhone Xs, the iPhone Xs Max, which shares numerous same features.

In fact, the FDA's letters to Apple classifying the watch's software as a Class II device-dated September 11 (PDF), the day before the launch event-state that the ECG app is not intended for use by people under age 22. All three will feature the new A12 Bionic chip, improved cameras and longer battery life.
