Apple Watch Series 4: Rumored Specifications, Price, Release Date

Now that Apple's iPhone event is officially set on Wednesday, September 12, 19459004, the expectations of an updated Apple Watch 4 are higher than before. In fact, we already know what it looks like .

In the three years since the original Apple Watch debuted in 2015, it has become the best watch on the market. And although updates have included GPS and full swim water resistance in Apple Watch Series 2 and onboard cell connectivity in Apple Watch Series 3 the overall look of the laptop remains quite consistent.

Apple Confirms 2018 iPhone Event for September 12


Could this be where Apple makes some major changes to what it really looks like – just in time to go against a brand new Google smartwatch and Samsung Samsung Galaxy Watch launched August 24th? It seems that the smartwatch match will be more heated in 2018 than ever before.


Apple's invitation to its September 12 event is in.


With regard to software, WatchOS 5 unveiled at Apple's WWDC Developer Conference in San Jose brings a number of workout enhancements to the table, an instant watch -to-watch walkie-talkie mode support podcasts and ability to play audio from third-party apps on the go.

This is what we think so far about the next Apple Watch, and what it can work. We will continue to update this with the latest rumors and reports. For more about what we think Apple will uncover, check out everything Apple is expected to announce soon .


Could this be Next Apple Watch? Certainly seems like that.


Is this Apple Watch Series 4?

9to5Mac posted a reported the true first look of the next Apple Watch (see above), which looks like a slide drawn right from Apple's upcoming presentation. It looks quite convincing. (Apple did not respond to a request to comment.) Note that the overall design is still quite similar. The clock appears to have less bezel around the screen and that larger screen size is set to use with a brand new clock face that shows more information and complications on the clock.

The digital crown here has a red ring, as opposed to the whole red crown top of the LTE-equipped Apple Watch Series 3. The microphone hole is new and the sidebar can be a more flushed solid state button

Apple Watch 4 launched an imminent

In a regulatory archiving with the Eurasian Economic Commission, Apple registered six product models referring to referring to "portable electronic devices" running WatchOS 5 . Because these product numbers are listed next to older Apple Watch models, it strongly points to a new Apple Watch. Remember, Apple did not want to drop six new watches. Instead, it is likely that different model numbers represent different clock variables, such as an LTE model, non-LTE model, etc.

9 rumors about Apple Watch 4 you need to know


Probable Release Date: September

Apple's latest iPhone events have all fallen in the week or two after Labor Day and Apple Watch has appeared with the iPhone in the last two years. (CNET editor Lynn La assumes that Apple would hold its iPhone announcement on September 12. Apple Watch Series 2 and Series 3 were available one week after both events, and it's a good bet. Apple will continue the trend.

Apple Watch 4 may compete with Samsung's recently announced Galaxy Watch.

price? Expect more of the same

Apple Watch has fallen a little in price in recent years, but Apple Watch Series 3 starts at $ 329 (£ 329, 459 US $), which seems like a logical territory for a next-generation model. A mobile version, just like Series 3, would cost more. As a comparison, Galaxy Watch launches official prices of $ 330 and £ 279 in the UK.

A larger screen

A spring report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (who has had a good track record on Apple rumors) said that the next Apple Watch would have a 15 percent larger screen . More recently in August, Bloomberg also reported that the watch will have a larger edge-to-edge display while the overall size will remain the same.

The existing Apple Watch models all have some wrappers hidden from the smartwatch's black borders and mostly black OLED readings, but going for a more edge-to-edge look would be sensible and open up more space for information and messages.

New Solid State, Click-Free Buttons

Part of the next Apple Watch slimmer size may be due to a redesign of the clickable side button and the spinning clickable digital crown. A recent report from Fast Company states that these buttons will be solid-state, with a phantomhaptically-enabled click feeling, like iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 Home Buttons and Newer ] MacBook trackpads . The Taptic Engine on Apple Watches is already extremely refined and making these buttons solid state can also help the watch be more water resistant.

Next Apple Watch can lie just around the corner.

Always at Siri, maybe?

Apple's latest MacBook Pros has added T2 chips that always offer Siri. Google's forthcoming next wave of Wear OS smartwatches partnership with Qualcomm promise always on Google Assistant. Would the next Apple Watch possibly always have Siri available without having to pick up Apple Watch or press the sidebar? For availability, it may be an appealing pitch – but it will require improved battery life or a more efficient set of processors.

Better battery life?

In the updated design, a battery with higher capacity (with better battery life) can fit. Or maybe the next Apple Watch will only be more effective when you use that battery. Part of the better battery life can theoretically come from new screen technology: a Bloomberg report in the spring said that Apple would create its own MicroLED displays in future products. MicroLED technology seems to have advantages for wearables, which makes "slimmer, lighter, less power hungry" gadgets. Better battery life would be a welcome feature for a new Apple Watch: current Apple Watch models usually need daily charging.

A slimmer size, or the same?

Apple Watch has had almost the same look for three years: a little bulbous, with rounded square edges. The changes in design reported so far do not clearly indicate how much thinner it would be or even if the clock could grow. Perhaps, as iPhone designs are updated, Apple Watch 4 will end up having a similar size, but will get extra performance, battery and screen size. Based on the above picture, it is difficult to tell.

Sleep tracking?

A missing feature in WatchOS 5 is built-in sleep tracking on Apple Watch. Apple bought sleep-tracking company Beddit in 2017, but has not incorporated track tracking in its own products or software yet. There are third-party Apple Watch apps that can monitor sleep but current bells usually require nightly charging that will prevent the necessary night time needed for sleep analysis.

Fitbit Watches meanwhile lasts about four days on a single charge, making sleep tracking easier. Garmin smartwatches add improved sleep tracking as well. Fitbit's heart rate studies also explore sleep apnea testing which could be another goal for Apple through improved heart rate sensors. Perhaps Apple is a way to get the clock into a sleepy low power mode that can still measure heart rate and sleep.

Enhanced health sensors?

Apple Watch measures heart rate well, and Apple's Heart Study app already recognizes atrial fibrillation using the sensor. Third Party ECG Bracelet like Kardia has added medical grade heart rate monitor . Reports dating back to last year have suggested that Apple could develop blood glucose monitoring technology but if it could end up being a band, an accessory or embedded sensor is unclear. Measurement for blood pressure or blood glucose monitoring will probably involve a specialized sensor or band, as what Omron pursues on its own clock. Or maybe FDA clearance for additional features that use heart rate may be unlocked.

Could it be smart straps? (Unlikely)

Recent Apple patent applications for connected UB equipment may offer additional features such as increased battery life. Or UV exposure sensing. What about blood glucose measurement, or ECG heart rate measurements, or even blood pressure sensors? Smart strap rumors have existed since Apple Watch first debuted, and patent applications are hardly an indicator of imminent product features. Pebble tried to develop Smart Straps for his Smartwatches years ago, but nothing was ever made of the effort. Will this Apple Watch bring back the idea? It seems unlikely, but keep checking this room.

What about a title store?

Despite reports indicating that iOS 4.3.1 had what looked like third party Apple Watch faces, Apple's WatchOS 5 Preview on WWDC did not reveal a Clock Face Store . That does not mean it can not happen. Perhaps debuting new clock faces along with a new Apple Watch would be a better move. If the next clock also has larger screen sizes, it can also affect how future clock families are designed. It's a safe bet to expect at least some new watch faces, anyway.

And maybe finally, AirPower

Hello, remember AirPower ? Apple's proprietary spin on unplugged charging would provide faster charging for more Apple devices like iPhones, AirPods, and even Apple Watch. According to Apple, Apple Watch Series 3 is already AirPower ready (although AirPower is not here yet). If AirPower exists, it will probably coincide with the next iPhone and Apple Watch (and AirPods).
