42mm Apple Watch Series 4 screen to feature higher 384 x 480 resolution?

42mm Apple Watch Series 4 screen to feature higher 384 x 480 resolution?
A week from today, Apple is expected to unveil the Apple Watch Series 4 (along with some other devices). The latest version of the wearable should sport a larger edge-to-edge display. According to a report published today, information culled from the most recent watchOS 5 beta suggests that the resolution of the display on the 42mm timepiece will be 384×480. That compares to the 312×390 seen on the current 42mm Apple Watch.

Apple will raise the resolution on the Series 4 models by making the screen slightly bigger while reducing the size of the bezels. There should be a number of new watch face options available to fit both the larger size of the display, and the edge-to-edge design. And there will be more complications, with as many as eight appearing on the watch face at the same time. One new feature, which we pointed out to you last month, is a reading for the UV Index. This is a scale that determines how much of a threat the sun's rays are to you during the day.

While the Apple Watch doesn't seem to get the press that the iPhone does, the wearable has been a huge success for the company. Apple is the top selling watch brand in the world. Note, we said watch brand, not smartwatch brand. Researcher IDC reported that Apple shipped 4.7 million watches during the second quarter, up 38.4% year-over-year. That gave Apple 17% of the market during the three month period, edging out Xiaomi.

My old series 3. Well good for you. Besides getting more complications I don’t see the need. I still have my series 2 and even though if I did not have one this would be a great deal. I don’t see the point of getting one of you have one already.

As long as he's using his money to buy it, who cares?
