The Series 4 can use the old Apple Watch bands of previous models, so users that already have a collection built up won't have to start from scratch.
The core advancement is a darling of a med tech smart set that touts the coming democratization of medicine.
According to a poll 9to5Mac conducted on readers, the iPhone Xs Max and Apple Watch Series 4 seem to generate the most interest among consumers and are likely the devices that will be pre-ordered the most. The sensors range in price from $99 to $199, followed by monthly or annual fees.
Gas explosions drive thousands from homes in Boston suburbs
In a release dated Thursday the company had said it would "be upgrading natural gas lines in neighbourhoods across the state". The blasts forced entire neighborhoods to evacuate as crews scrambled to fight the flames and shut off the gas.
To win over buyers in a tight market, Apple was reported to be launching handsets with 30 percent more viewing space without increasing the size of the devices.
Perhaps the most groundbreaking change is the introduction of an ECG (electrocardiography) sensor. The watch, sold in the United States from $399 and up, will be available in stores on September 21.
Apple hopes developers will update the UI of their apps to match these new screens. A full ECG has 12 leads and is necessary to diagnose a whole host of other heart conditions.
Apple today announced three new iPhones and a new pair of Apple Watches. Apple partnered with Stanford University a year ago to conduct a study on monitoring for irregular heartbeats. A new app will say whether each reading is normal or shows signs of atrial fibrillation. But there's debate over what score equals what treatment. Aside from Super Retina displays, Apple says both have the state-of-the-art features created to bring the best smartphone experience yet.

The head of LVMH's watch division, which makes watches under the Zenith, Hublot and TAG-Heuer brands, Jean-Claude Biver thought the Apple Watch did not pose a threat to Swiss watches above a certain price point. Apple has put together a guide for developers to help them ensure their apps are prepared for the new phones and wearables on day one.
Apple worked with the FDA to design a wrist-based monitor that would gather enough meaningful information about heart rhythm, and present it in a way that might be useful to a health professional. You can tap to acknowledge the fall but say you're OK. Instead, the watch will be charging on your nightstand when you're crawling out of bed on your way to the bathroom.
Chinese troops take part in Russia's military exercise
The Kremlin has accused North Atlantic Treaty Organisation of expanding westwards and threatening Russian national security. Dubbed Vostok-2018, the war games involve hundreds of thousands of troops, armoured vehicles, tanks, drones and warships.
The crown on the side of the watch now provides the utility to take accurate ECG, approved by the FDA in the USA. If you've got money left over after buying your blood pressure monitor, it may just be worth the investment.
