Apple Watch 4 Confirmed: Release Date, Pre-order, Price & Specs

A new Apple Watch is here, and available to pre-order now. We outline what's new in Apple Watch Series 4, plus all the facts you need on pricing and availability.

Apple has officially confirmed its fourth-generation Apple Watch during its September 12 event, which is available to pre-order today.

The new Apple Watch Series 4 has a redesigned screen that is more than 30 percent larger. It's pushed right to the corners, so there have been minimal changes to the case size - the Series 4 is actually thinner than Series 3.


Other hardware changes include a speaker that's 50 percent louder, and a re-engineered digital crown that builds in haptic feedback. There's a new S4 64-bit dual-core processor that's two times faster, while the black ceramic and sapphire crystal rear improves cellular reception.
Apple has also redesigned the WatchOS software, and there are now eight complications. You can customise these with the things that are important to you, such as health and fitness data and different time zones.

Some of the more interesting new features are to do with health, however. The Apple Watch Series 4 is the first consumer product offered over the counter to allow ECG (electrocardiogram) tests wherever you are, important for helping to diagnose certain heart diseases. (This feature will not be available at launch.)

The Series 4 can also send notifications if your heart rate is too low, or if you have an irregular heart beat. And it can detect a fall - should you be immobile for a minute it will automatically trigger an emergency call and send a text with your location.

Despite all these changes, Apple Watch Series 4 has the same 18-hour battery life as previously.

Apple Watch Series 4 price and release date
The new Apple Watch 4 costs from £399/US$399 with GPS, and £499/$499 with cellular. The Series 3 is still available from £279/$279.
  • GPS 40mm: £399/$399
  • GPS 44mm: £429/$429
  • Cellular 40mm: £499/$499
  • Cellular 44mm: £529/$529

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

2019 BMW i8 Review

The 2019 BMW i8 is a head-turner for its looks, which hides its plug-in powertrain. That’s good or bad, depending on your priorities.Even among six-figure cars with two doors, the 2019 BMW i8 steals stares. That could be because of the dramatic wing doors and futuristic shape, its laser headlights at night, or the 2019 i8’s silent propulsion for up to 18 miles.
Or it may steal attention because, even after more than four years on sale, it’s a very rare sight.

Apple iPhone XR Review

If you aren't sure you are ready to leave the Home button behind and embrace Face ID, think again. We'll tell you why the iPhone XR is worth the sacrifice - especially because it's just as good (if not better than) the iPhone XS. Find out more in out full review.
Should I Buy The Apple iPhone XR?
The iPhone XR brings Face ID to the masses. We’re sure people will continue to rebel against the lack of Home button, but eventually we expect them to come round and embrace the larger screen, Portrait mode (front and back), animoji and memoji.We have no doubt that this will be a popular iPhone and it deserves to be. The only question is why would anyone buy an iPhone XS when the iPhone XR is just as powerful and has a bigger screen.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
