Well for starters, the watch is beautifully redesigned. It comes in two size variants, 40mm, and 44mm sizes. The 40mm equates to the previous 38mm, and the 44mm equate to the previous 42mm. Starting $399 for the GPS- only models and $499 for GPS plus Cellular models. The colors are silver, space gray and gold. Material usage is aluminum and stainless steel. Besides that Series 4 comes in the biggest every apple wearable size, 30% larger screen area. It takes after iPhone X the edge to edge screen treatment and hence the larger screen space.
The specifications are:
Dual-core 64 bit processor, a new GPU that will give this watch twice the previous performance. There’s a heart rate monitor on the device, a combination of electrodes on the flat edge of the digital crown that can take ECG readings- a plus point for those who need frequent ECG readings. It also lets the device detect too high/ too low heart rates, can measure electro diagrams, check for signs of atrial fibrillation.

Apple Watch Series 4: Price
Starting $399 for the GPS- only models and $499 for GPS plus Cellular models. The higher price range remains a bone of contention with those customers who were looking to upgrade. This comes in the light of proposed US tariffs Chinese goods that Apple CEO Tim Cook said would affect a “wide range” of Apple’s products. At the same time, Apple has increased prices on all its new launches- iPhone X and iPhone XS Max.
