The launch date of the previous Apple Watches was also done in September, which is exactly why many predict that the new model will arrive at this same month this year.

There were 38mm and 42mm sizes for the previous watch models, but the analyst states that there will be a dramatic increase of 15% on the new watch model’s size. The screen of the product is also said to undergo an upgrade as the product will now have a 1.57-inch and 1.78-inch screen, compared to its predecessor which had a 1.31-inch and 1.54-inch displays.

The concept artist stated that the screen area is increased by 35-38%.

It will sport an electrocardiogram which is more advanced than heart rate monitors in order to provide better details on your cardiovascular condition. This feature will use electricity in order to analyze the full condition of your heart. But some cardiologists have claimed that this new technology may not be advisable for those who don’t have heart-related problems. After all, the heart rate only matters for healthy people when they exercise. The Apple Watch 4 is also rumored to have a respiration rate tracker, but this is an issue that’s been going on since the early days of Apple Watch. Some even say that this feature might be present on the Apple Watch Series 5 instead. But it’s a good thing to know that GPS technology for this product will be boosted for the sake of fitness, and it can even track your swimming abilities as the product is going to be waterproof this time.
