The price details of the Apple Watch Series 4 in India has not been revealed by the company yet.

The latest Apple Watch version unveiled Wednesday is pushing the health envelope even further - in particular by taking electrocardiograms, or EKGs, on the device, a feature given clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Apple said.

As the Apple Watch Series 4 was announced last night at Apple's "gather around" event, my colleague Rohith Bhaskar said, "My god, they've literally put a clinic on the wrist!".

Apple is expected to showcase three new iPhones on Wednesday, including its biggest and most expensive model yet, as the company seeks to widen the product's appeal amid slowing sales growth.

"In my experience, people often report symptoms that are absent during their medical visits", Ivor Benjamin, president of the American Heart Association, said at the event unveiling the $399 watch. It eliminates the need to attach ECG sensors like the AliveCor's Kardiaband to the Apple Watch.

Such a device could help doctors treat patients who report dizziness or heart palpitations, both potential signs of heart rhythm disturbances, said Dr. Lawrence Phillips, a cardiologist and assistant professor of medicine at New York University Langone Health. He said such real-time data would change the way doctors work.

That number comes from the National Hurricane Center report issued less than four months after landfall in December of 2005. In a second tweet Thursday, Trump cast blame on Democrats, who he said are trying to make him look bad.

Apple's newly announced iPhone XS and iPhone XS Plus go on sale this Friday, September 14th alongside the Apple Watch Series 4 and will be available in stores on Friday 21st. With the upcoming annoncment of a new Apple Watch, I am wondering whether smart watches are for everyone.

Apple definitely worked hard to enhance the new Apple Watch by adding more sensors and health monitoring features.

Those who are waiting for the appearance of fingerprint scanner iPhone X 2018 will be disappointed - it does not appear this year, says analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

The Series 4 includes a user interface redesign that comes with new complications (essentially quick access to watch applications) - one watch face can even include eight complications at once. To take an ECG reading, the wearer simply has to touch the device's Digital Crown for 30 seconds, with the recordings stored in Apple's Health app. The app has been gaining traction as of late and allows Apple smartwatch owners to talk with each other.

The two FDA-approved Apple apps monitor for atrial fibrillation, a common heart rhythm irregularity that can lead to stroke. If it receives no response within a minute, the watch will automatically place an emergency call and message friends and family designated as emergency contacts. Apple insists that the improved accelerometer won't be tricked and can easily differentiate a fall from other awkward movements. "I can see kids buying one for their parents and grandparents", he said of the smartwatch. But a different product is closest to his heart: the Apple Watch. An extended battery life of six hours whilst using Global Positioning System should please those who enjoy exercising outdoors and pace alerts for runners should enable them to see just how they're performing.
