Apple Watch Series 4 made its global debut along with iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max on September 12 in Cupertino. The latter two mobile models are already available in India and now, Apple's latest smart wearable is finally up for pre-order in the country.

Compared to previous versions, the Watch Series 4 was the show stopper in the annual Apple Fall event. It has undergone a significant change in terms of design and internal hardware and was able to overshadow the newly-introduced iPhone XS (review) series.

The all-new Watch Series 4 flaunts curvy lozenge design with the slimmer body (just 10.7 mm thickness) and 30-percent increased display compared to the predecessor Watch Series 3 (review). The successor looks stunning with near edge-to-edge screen, while the new interface watchOS 5 provides more information with richer detail.

With watchOS 5 onboard, the Watch Series 4 brings advanced activity and communications features, along with revolutionary health capabilities. This includes a new accelerometer and gyroscope, which are able to detect hard falls, and an electrical heart rate sensor that can take an electrocardiogram (ECG) using the new ECG app, which has been granted a De Novo classification by the FDA.

Apple plans to get similar regulatory approvals in other regions from respective government agencies. We are not sure if this feature will be available in India, as Apple is yet to reveal whether they got approval from local agencies.

Apple offers the Watch Series 4 in two sizes, 40mm and 44mm. The speaker is said to be 50 per cent louder, optimized for phone calls, Siri and Walkie-Talkie features. The microphone has been relocated, to reduce echo for better sound quality.
