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 and more immersive screen than before, the fourth-gen Apple Watch is a step beyond its predecessor. A thinner design and other design

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

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

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...

Hands on: Apple Watch 4 review


The Watch many will have been waiting for

Strong display ; Lovely back ; Clever new health features

Little in way of general fitness upgrades ; ECG capability limited to US initially

This is a really impressive upgrade from Apple – if you're thinking of getting yourself a Watch from the brand, we'd suggest you start thinking about this one. Given that the display is the only real upgrade, you could say there's not much of a change;...

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.

Apple Watch Series 4: All-new FDA-approved Apple Watch 4 with fall detection unveiled

Apple Watch Series 4 review: Spotify app for Apple Watch announced


You can now listen to Spotify playlists directly from your Watch, but there's no offline support yet

Larger screen ; Thinner ; Excellent performance

No ECG test in UK ; Expensive

Consider that it’s also twice as fast as its predecessor and thinner too, and the only reason to put off buying the Apple Watch 4 is its predictably high price tag.
