Can an Apple Watch save your life?

Gartner analyst Tuong Nguyen said the feature could turn smartwatches "from something people buy for prestige into something they buy for more practical reasons".

The Apple Watch and iPhone may be two distinctly different pieces of hardware, but one can't exist without the other.

With the annual September keynote approaching, many Apple fans are wondering whats in store for the Apple Watch. It is a 6.1-inch LCD with 1,792 by 828 pixels.

The Apple Watch 4 that was unveiled Wednesday will include electrocardiogram testing.

The customisable interface for the Apple Watch Series 4 is a big win, allowing you to turn your watch from something focused around your business life to your ideal workout companion. Particularly, the Hermes Watches are now all above £1,000 in price.

And Xr only has one rear camera and does not have 3D Touch.

"I'm so zealous about the watch because I see it as making a material difference to people's quality of life and actually their ability to be alive", Ive said. It is IP68 rated for water/dust resistance and is also MIL-STD-810G rated for durability and water resistance up to 5 atmospheres.

According to Apple, the Series 4 runs at twice the speed of the Apple Watch 3, thanks to the dual-core S4 processor inside it. Of course, the Apple Watch 4 isn't out yet, and it could be that Apple has more tricks up its sleeve that'll make the brand new device a necessary purchase. The Xr is a more affordable all-display phone. You'd have to try really hard to wreck one of these displays. The back of the Watch lets more cellular signals through, making calls clearer. Both models can hold up to 512GB of storage.

When it comes to the Apple Watch, there's a lot of improvements that users want Apple to implement in the newer generation of this device. Internal storage stands at 16GB. Since yesterday's close, the stock has shot up almost 3%. As competition seeks to catch up or get ahead on the technologies offered, further refinements to heart monitoring could become available. And as an added bonus, the Galaxy Watch can be used to control your SmartThings deices and with Samsung Pay.

The trillion dollar company also revealed an upgraded version of its Watch during a launch event at its headquarters in Cupertino, California. If it receives no response within a minute, the watch will automatically place an emergency call and message friends and family designated as emergency contacts.

Apple kicked off its September 12 iPhone event with the unveiling of the Apple Watch Series 4, which offers a variety of upgrades and new features.

The Galaxy Watch is a little more reasonably priced starting at £279/329 up to £299/$349. Pricing for the LTE models is not yet available.
