The Apple Watch Is Officially Awesome
The newest Apple Watch just may be cooler than the iPhone and can also help save lives
The Apple Watch Series 4 is the first makeover that the Apple Watch has seen. Much like the iPhone Xs, the screen extends nearly to all edges of the watch. There are also now two different size options for the watch - 40mm and 44mm. While all of those updates are awesome, the coolest update is by far the new built-in ECG app.
According to Apple, the “new electrical heart sensor [means that] you can use the ECG app to generate an ECG, or electrocardiogram, at any time to share with your doctor.” This improvement can help Apple Watch wearers to better monitor their heart, which can hopefully help improve people’s overall health and wellbeing.
The watch monitors the user’s heart rate and lets them know if it detects anything concerning. The watch also comes with fall detection; meaning, the watch can tell if the user has fallen and a call to emergency services will be initiated (and easily cancelled, if it’s not needed).
All in all, the new Apple Watch looks like it’s a pretty sweet upgrade from the original models. Will you be upgrading your Apple Watch? Let us know in the comments section below and be sure to subscribe to The Sitch for more tech news and other entertaining reads.
