Apple previews WatchOS 4 for Apple Watch

Apple previews WatchOS 4 for Apple Watch

It includes many new features, such as updated applications, new watch faces, and improved general functionality.

WatchOS 4 offers new workouts like high-intensity interval training, personalized notifications to help you stay motivated, and the option to have your playlists start as soon as you begin a workout.

As per a statement by Apple, watchOS 4 will be available this fall ( September) as a free update to Apple Watch paired with iPhone 5s and later on iOS 11.

Today is the start of Apple's WWDC 2017 conference, and one of the major focuses of the keynote was watchOS 4. Apple Watch is available in two different case sizes, 38mm and 42mm.

The Siri face will deliver information to the user depending on what time it is and what events the user has lined up for the day. You can view photos, save news headlines to be read later.

The Activity app is also getting an overhaul with watchOS 4. With watchOS 4 four you can accurately count down all the calories, you burned during your toughest workouts.

We also have our fingers crossed that it'll be easier to combine your watchOS fitness stats with other third-party apps, but there are no rumors to back this up at the moment.

Some are hoping it may come with a store to download Watch faces directly from, but that's unlikely, as we reckon that if Apple was going to add such a feature it would have done before now. Multiple workouts can be combined back-to-back, letting you train for demanding physical events like triathlons without having to return to the Watch between stages.

In addition to Siri Watch Face, Apple has developed a kaleidoscope Watch Face with new characters to give Micky and Minnie Mouse some company.

This update allows NFC in the Apple Watch to work with something outside of Apple Pay.

Apple also introduced new summer band colours, giving customers more options to choose from.
