Apple Watch Series 4: Your Portable Health Monitoring System?

New Apple Watch Series 4 steals the show Apple launches preorders for new iPhones and watches, some quickly sell out

This year's three top phones are all more expensive than last year's models.

Apple watches have had onboard heart-rate monitors since their introduction in 2014, but the fourth generation watch, due to be released September 21, offers an FDA-approved ability to analyze heart rhythm, too. Apple is going a step beyond, actually detecting when something is wrong before you even know it.

According to their own website, "the app has electrodes built into the Digital Crown, which enables users to receive a heart rhythm classification".

"The completely redesigned Apple Watch Series 4 continues to be an indispensable communication and fitness companion, and now with the addition of groundbreaking features, like fall detection and the first-ever ECG app offered directly to consumers, it also becomes an intelligent guardian for your health", he said.

Gartner analyst Tuong Nguyen said the feature could turn smartwatches "from something people buy for prestige into something they buy for more practical reasons".

Directly from the Apple store, one can purchase the watch, iPhone X and iPhone XS Max.

However, there is the potential that the watch could mistakenly flag a problem, sending you unnecessarily to the doctor's office.

In fact, the ECG app is only coming to America later this year, with other countries offering a bit of a question mark at this time. The new Apple Watch claims to be able to tell the difference between a trip and a fall - and when the latter occurs, it will suggest calling 911 (or the equivalent outside the U.S.). If Apple Watch senses immobility for 60 seconds after the notification, it will automatically call emergency services and send a message along with the location to emergency contacts. This is partially down to 40mm and 44mm sizes that the new watches will be available in, up from 38mm and 42mm that we had seen in all Apple Watch models launched till date. It used that data to separate real falls from other heavy wrist movements, such as clapping and hammering. We've already written about this in an earlier post, but the FDA gave Apple the approvals it needed for the watch on the condition it stress that any readings should be seen as a guide that you'd want to get a doctor to look into. On top of that, both feature long battery life, especially the iPhone Xs Max.
