Apple Watch 4 review: Potential life-saver | Trusted Reviews

 

Apple Watch 4 is here. Here's our review, along with pricing, key features and a look a what's new with the updated design and ECG.

Feels great to wear ; Screen is gorgeous ; Huge amount of strap options ; Fantastic array of fitness and health features ; It motivates you so well to be active

It won’t last multiple days without needing a charge ; Still won’t track sleep natively ; No always-on display is irritating

The Apple Watch 4 is the best smartwatch I have ever used.

Apple Watch Series 4 review: Small tweaks make a big impact

 

Earlier Apple Watches were impressive wearables, but the new Series 4 is the strongest argument yet for wearing a smartwatch. And that's not just because of bigger, edge-to-edge screen or its improved fitness tracking either. The combination of a more...

Bigger and improved screen ; Long battery life ; Much-improved performance ; Accurate step tracking ; Walkie-Talkie conversations are a blast ; New heart features could save lives ; Talking to Siri is easier

More expensive than ever ; Transferring LTE service can be tricky ; ECG feature isn't ready yet ; Some watch faces feel like information overload ; Rival watches have even better battery life

I have my gripes, certainly. I'd prefer the kind of battery life we get out of rival smartwatches, to say nothing of always-on displays. The Apple Watch Series 4 doesn't do everything I want it to. That said, the Series 4 does everything it sets out to...

The Watch Series 4's bigger screen, thinner body, and class-leading health features make it a truly next-gen smartwatch

Big, bright screen ; Good battery life ; Impressive health features ; Better fit in thinner body

Running data still behind Garmin ; New flush side button is harder to press

Apple Watch Series 4

 

The Apple Watch Series 4 delivers a category-leading smartwatch experience with more advanced apps and health features than the competition.

Large screen. Good call quality. ECG capability. Fall detection. WatchOS 5 brings numerous improvements. Stylish.

Expensive. Battery life remains unchanged. No built-in sleep tracking.

Bottom Line: The Apple Watch Series 4 delivers a category-leading smartwatch experience with more advanced apps and health features than the competition.

Apple Watch 4 review: the best gets better

 

Better screen, better health features, and better speed.

Great battery life ; Huge, beautiful screen ; Health-tracking features, not just fitness

Siri is still unreliable ; No always-on screen option ; Complication options can be confusing

Now that Apple has figured out what the Apple Watch is for, the Series 4 just makes it better.

Apple Watch Series 4 review

 

Apple Watch Series 4 is the best reason yet to buy a smartwatch

Sleek redesign ; Huge, gorgeous screen ; Novel health features

Significantly more expensive than Series 3 ; No always-on display option

The Apple Watch Series 4 does so much more and so much better than other wearables that it's a no-brainer if you're after a Smartwatch

Apple Watch 4 review

 

One of the best smartwatches just got better

Larger display ; Lightweight design ; Louder speaker

Still on the pricey side ; Battery life needs to be more than two days

Apple clearly believes smartwatches are here to stay - the Watch 4 utterly proves that. The design alone is a big upgrade, with the screen offering far more visibility, and while the health benefits are only going to help a subset of users, they're...

Garmin Vivofit 4 review

 

A year-long battery, but you still get a screen

Incredible battery life ; A color screen ; Low price

No GPS or heart rate ; Lacks phone notifications ; Sometimes difficult interface

The Garmin Vivofit 4 introduces a color screen to the range, improves the design and comfort as well as offering unbeaten battery life. This won't suit those looking for lots and lots of fitness tracking features, but for the basics the Vivofit 4 is a...

Apple Watch Series 4 review: Stay Gold

 

The usual caveats apply, but the new Apple Watch is still far and away the best smartwatch experience out there.

Incredibly smooth software experience ; Great look and feel

You have to own an iPhone ; No ECG in Australia

Apple Watch Series 4 Review: This is the one

 

Has there been a learning experience for Apple quite like the Apple Watch? Back when the original model launched in 2015, there was - not unfairly - a sense that Apple itself wasn't quite sure what exactly it should do. Now, as the Apple Watch Series 4...

Mesmerizing new display ; Fast and smooth performance ; Health features could be game-changers ; Battery life hasn't suffered

Siri still falls short ; Expensive
