Three years after the release, Apple Watch has finally been redesigned. It has a bigger screen in a similarly sized body while being lighter. It has a whole range of new health features, one of which is first ever in a wearable — ECG. Apple has figured out the two main use cases for Apple Watch: communication and health tracking and how they’re doubling down on both. Here are the 10 best Apple Watch Series 4 features that you should know about.
1. Bigger Edge to Edge Screen
For the first time since the release, Apple Watch has been redesigned. While it still keeps the square face, the screen now pushes way towards the edge. You get an edge-to-edge display, with rounded corners that match the rounded corners of the body of the Apple Watch.
The Apple Watch sizes have changed as well. Now, you get two models: 40mm and 44mm. All this means that the new Apple Watch Series 4 has 35 percent more screen real estate compared to the Series 3. That’s a huge gain for a wristwatch. There’s such a size difference here that even the 40mm Series 4 comes with a larger screen than the 42mm Series 3 Watch (759 sq mm screen area vs 740 sq mm).
All this while the Apple Watch itself got thinner. The Series 4 stands at 10.7mm thickness while Series 3 was 11.4mm thick.
