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: the best smartwatch takes a leap forward

 

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 review: The smartwatch king is bigger and better than ever

 

With a bigger screen dominating its design, the Apple S4 watch upgrades software, processing power, well-being via heart-monitoring and more

Bigger and more immersive screen looks superb ; Same strap size despite new design ; Will last you through a day

Electrocardiogram feature not available at launch ; Some WatchOS 5 nitpicks ; No battery improvement

With a bigger and more immersive screen than before, the fourth-gen Apple Watch is a step beyond its predecessor. A thinner design and other design tweaks, plus updated software, makes for a more rounded experience too.

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: Bigger, faster and even more health-conscious

 

The Apple Watch adds an ECG app and refines everything else.

The Apple Watch Series 4 offers a larger, crisp display that shows more with less bezel, super fast speed and a louder speaker. It adds high and low heart-rate detection, fall detection with SOS trigger and an FDA-cleared ECG app for more detailed...

Starting prices are higher than last year. Battery life still won't last past two days. Watch face options are still very limited in choice and function. It only works with iPhones.

The Apple Watch Series 4 is the fastest, most connected and best overall smartwatch around, but its battery life and watch face options often fall short of the competition.

Apple Watch 4 vs Apple Watch 3: Which one should you buy?

 

We compare the design, features and specs of the Apple Watch 4 and Apple Watch 3

The Apple Watch 4 definitely has plenty of appeal, not least the sleeker design and larger display, but thanks to the fact that its main feature won't be ready outside the US at launch, we're not ready to outright recommend it just yet.
