What do you think about the Apple Watch Series 4?
The new Apple Watch is out and it's pretty awesome. Apple increased the body size by a bit but also reduced the bezels, giving the Watch a new, modernized look. Additionally, it improved on it with an actual ECG monitor (FDA-approved at that), a new Taptic engine feedback for when you are rotating the crown, a new S4 chip, which improves performance, and new loudspeakers that are much more audible than before.

You can check our review of the Apple Watch Series 4 below, but here's a spoiler: it's pretty much the best smartwatch you can get right now. Yes, the Samsung Galaxy Watch is a close second, but has a bit of catching up to do.

But hey, we are on the Internet, and it's full of opinions. Let's get yours — do you like the Apple Watch Series 4?

I love it so much, I am considering switching to iPhone for it
I love it and I do have an iPhone
Don't like it, I do have an iPhone
Don't like it, I'm not on iOS

I think finally it's worth buying.. Too bad it took 4 to get it right per se. I'm waiting for Black Friday when carriers will be offering great deals to get it and a matching iPhone. I want the gold XS Max and matching watch.

No they still didn’t get it right. As long as it HAS to be tethered to a phone, it will always only be an iPhone accessory.

Then buy LTE version poor.

That is what I was gonna say. Even though most watches need to be tethered for one reason or another, Apple. Finlay adding LTE is welcomed. But they also drastically increased the price which to me is greed. LTE wear ales have not costore than $360 and even that (Samsung) is to high for such a limited capability piece of hardware.

What exactly did they "get right"? It goes into a bootloop because of Daylight Savings Time! https://www.gsmarena.com/apple_watch_series_4_bootloops_due_to_daylight_savings_time-news-33636.php

It's still square and ugly with only a day of battery. No thanks.

Smartwatches are BS , and tech nonsense ! No future for them. One year lasting tech model, can not replace the real, classy wrist-watch. Never. On the other hand, smart, slim, and fancy bracelet is useful gadget. But because the cost less than $99 , they are not good for profit. LOL. I don't ware watches but I bought one bracelet for $30 just for fun, and I'm amazed how useful is it for me. It's slim, very light, and beautiful. I often couldn't find my phone in my room or office just when I'm in a hurry to go out. With one touch on the bracelet my phone start to ring. Or in noisy shop or bar it vibrates on my wrist if phone-call or message .(also on meetings with ring-volume turned off) HBR is working fine. I don't trust there the Blood Pressure numbers much, but it's there too. Only one thing I'm missing : when go away more than BT can reach my phone, to warn me that I forgot my phone. With this, and better BT, I would gladly pay double.

You stick with ur cheap little bracelet because you are unable to afford a proper device. Don't be jealous, just work harder and you may be able to afford one soon. That all this little childish rant was about.

What about "I like it but don't use an iPhone"

I really like the Apple watch but the one day battery is a bummer

13. strategic_developer

For the price I agree. For a device which functions are so limited, battery life should be longer. I get 2 days from my Gear S3 and 1.5 days from my Gear S2. They both have limited functions vs a phone. But I dont have to charge them everyday. My phone either.

Never used it, so no comment on function, but the design is hideous. It looks like the original Samsung smart watch, boxy and ugly. I'll stick with the Gear/Galaxy watches right now - better design, better interface, better device.

Ive owned the OG / 2nd gen galaxy gear watch, Moto 360, Apple Series 1,3,4 and no they are not designed similar.

Yeah, sorry, but the Apple Watch looks very similar to the original Galaxy Gear. Same ugly, boxy look.

18. gamehead unregistered

It's probably the best watch around, but like other Apple products it could use more features.

Why isn't there an option for, "I love it but I own an Android"?

42. T12RYK

Posts: 849; Member since: Jun 10, 2011

Because Android is trash and doesn't even deserve that option! HAHA!

Pretty cool. But I'm content with my Series 3.

I'm moving from a Google Pixel to an iPhone Xs or iPhone Xr to get one. I was holding out for a Pixel watch this fall but that's not happening now and I don't feel like getting another fitbit.

The Series 4 has been a very good upgrade over Series 1 that I had. Battery life is very good. I can all day on higest brightness and only go down to 66%. Anxiously awaiting for the ECG monitoring for version 5.1. This is the game changer right here!

I would hope that a fourth generation product would be a good upgrade over a first gen.

As my smartwatch has to get along with multi hour activities, the Apple Watch Series 4 is still a no go because of poor battery life. I stay with my Garmin Fenix 3 WHR. That watch offers much more GPS tracking time (Data sheet says 16 hrs), Example: Last weekend, I did a 2 day hike tour in the alps, I tracked my hike with GPS. I did not have to take any equipment with me to load the watch over night.

Flat out, the best smart watch I’ve owned. I keep it brutally honest, and sugarcoat nothing. It’s an outstanding device, Apple did a great job on it. Now fix the damn DST bug...unacceptable Apple. Plain and simple.
