And suddenly you start practising sports

This Apple Watch Series 4 is the ultimate device for a healthy life.

The Apple Watch Series 4 is both innovative furthermore now also mature. It not only offers a larger display. Finally, speed problems are also not an issue. Unquestionably, it is the Smartwatch you’ve been waiting for all this time?

No, people didn’t want a bigger screen for the Apple Watch. The wish list included more battery, wrist gestures, independence from the iPhone or sleep tracking. All things that would make the Apple Watch a better wrist computer. Geeks have been very satisfied with the Apple Watch since the first version.

The Design

First and foremost there is the new design. The watch is minimally larger and has a much larger and above all rimless screen. The latter is the big highlight of the new watch. It was clear after the iPhone X at the latest that such a screen would come at some point. But the fact that it makes the watch so much more beautiful only becomes apparent when you wear the new Apple Watch.

Without a doubt, the case has now become a little flatter. Unfortunately, this makes it difficult to feel the case blindly.

However, the new watch is again available in two case sizes. Both are larger than their predecessors (38 contrary to 42 millimetres). Now you have the choice between a 40-millimetre case alternatively a 44-millimetre case. A difference in the size of two millimetres seems marginal, but in the world of watches, it means a huge leap.

You don’t have to worry that the Apple Watch will now pull your wrist down like a thick diver’s watch. My “big” device weighs just 36.7 grams without a wristband. A joke compared to a classic wristwatch. The difference in size between the old and the new Apple Watch goes down quickly in everyday life, and you hardly take it after a few hours.

Clicking crown

Another highlight of the case is the reworked crown. Instead of the red dot criticised last year, it now has an elegant red circle. Not only does this look much more discreet, but this change was also necessary to make an ECG possible (more about this later).

But the crown not only looks better, but it also feels better. Apple has integrated haptic and acoustic feedback. When you scroll through menus, you feel and hear that. The illusion is so good that you no longer have the feeling of turning a freely rotating wheel. It feels like there are gears and springs hidden somewhere.

It’s “just” a very smart combination of tones and haptic feedback. The Taptic Engine is responsible for the latter. A small metal pin is thrown magnetically back and forth and generates precise vibrations. This technology is also used for the silent alarm clock and all notifications. It was one of the best features of the first Apple Watch, along with the easily changeable wristbands.

Many new dials

Since the Apple Watch hardware and software merge seamlessly like no other Apple product, the new dials must also be part of the design. During the first few days with the watch, two of them were particularly noticeable.

On the one hand, there are the photorealistic dials that show fire, water and coloured dust. They are an eye-catcher on the large screens. Detail on the side: These are not computer animations. Apple has built extra-large models of the case, for example, igniting a fire and filming the whole thing.

The second dial that deserves special attention is the Infograf dial. This looks fascinatingly overloaded in the advertising photos. But it is much more than just a dial.

It is a dial generator. Because each of the numerous complications (the little info appetisers on the dial) can be individually selected and, above all, deactivated. This allows you to design much simpler and more elegant dials. One can even use classic watch designs. For example: The Panda dial with three black circles on a white background, which is popular with watch fans.

All these improvements and innovations make the fourth Apple Watch an even better watch game and the most significant update since the first generation.

Conclusion

Moreover, the first considerable revision of the Apple Watch has succeeded. The Apple Watch Series 4 offers a new user experience thanks to its larger display, faster processor and many other details and in our opinion is currently the best Smartwatch on the market. A great feature is also that you can control Netflix, Spotify or many other Apps without using the iPhone logically also when Airpods are connected.. The price is justified for the technology and design you get.

Again, the leap from the third to the fourth generation is the biggest Apple Watch has made since its presentation in autumn 2014. It is now an even better fitness tracker, an even better wrist computer and above all an even more fascinating wristwatch. As a fan of mechanical watches, I can’t help but be amazed at the dedication and attention to detail that the watchmakers from Cupertino have shown.

So wearing a classical watch on the left armwrist and Apple Watch 4 on the right one – just great. We got addicted to Jean-Claude Biver’s style.
