Apple Watch Series 4 specs and price in india
The Apple watch series 4 is yet another smart innovation from Apple that offers a few of the significant changes that we have never seen it before until now. The watch has a bigger and brighter display compared to its predecessors. Next, in the line, it offers a fall detection sensor, an ECG recorder( only for the US) and a better electrical heart rate sensor.
The first significant visible difference of the Apple watch series 4 is its case that offers two variants, i.e. 40mm (324 X 394 pixels) and 44mm (368 X 448 pixels). Also, it 0.7mm thinner than the series 3. Like the previous model the series 4 also has a stainless steel/aluminium case with all-ceramic/sapphire crystal back.
Speaking of the hardware and software, the Apple watch series 4 runs on the S4 chipset with 64-bit dual core processor and a memory size of 16 GB. Furthermore, the watch is powered by a watchOS 5.0 software that is specially developed for the Apple watch series.
The Apple watch series 4 has a GPS tracker to track the movements of the wearer. Apart from that, both the versions of the Apple watch are pre-equipped with WiFi and Bluetooth. However, a cellular variant is available that is more expensive compared to the non-cellular option.
The Apple watch series 4 comes with multiple features like electrical heart sensor, optical heart sensor, fall detector which provides the user to stay more healthy, fit and active. Also, the watch is 50 meters water resistant so you can even wear it while swimming.

In conclusion, the Apple watch series 4 is an excellent modification over the series 3, but all that glitters is not gold.
Yes, the watch has some new features like a more prominent display, improved battery life, enhanced heart monitoring sensors and fall detector mechanism. However, it is not worth paying 41K for a smartwatch.
Additionally, the ECG recorder is not available in India which is also a disappointment for me. The Apple watch series 4 is a luxury product and if you need to show off to the crowd, by all means, go ahead and buy it!
In my opinion, the series 3 also offers almost the same features with a massive gap in the price. I recommend you to reconsider before buying the Apple watch series 4.
