Apple introduced Apple Watch Series 4 last week during the #AppleEvent, offered in two sizes, 40mm and 44mm.
Apple Watch Series 4 with watchOS 5 brings advanced activity and communications features, along with revolutionary health capabilities, including 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,1 which has been granted a De Novo classification by the FDA.
Other features include a built-in speaker with 50 percent louder, optimized for phone calls, Siri and Walkie-Talkie, and the microphone has been relocated, to reduce echo for better sound quality. The device includes the next-generation S4 chip with a custom 64-bit dual-core processor, delivering twice the speed while maintaining the same all-day battery life.
Set to launch in South Africa on 28th September 2018, the new Apple Watch 4 (GPS) will cost R7999 for the 40mm version, while the 44mm version will go for a whopping R8599.
And unfortunately, the Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS + Cellular) won’t be released locally.
