Four things we learned from the Apple Watch 4 teardown

  • FDA Recognizes New Apple Watch as Medical Device

While Apple did boast of its feature to work precisely during its keynote, the feature won't be active right out of the box, unless the user of the Watch is 65 years of age or older. In case you didn't know, the wearable also came with a Fall detection mechanism which will alert nearby people or contact emergency services when a wearer falls down on the ground.

Here's how to enable it to ensure your emergency contact knows when you're in trouble. The watch essentially vibrates, sounds an alarm, and displays an alert.

If you want to disable it, follow the same process as above and toggle off Fall Detection It is automatically turned on for users aged 65 or older. Given how much Apple advertised that safety feature, some might have expected it to be enabled by default for all.

However, if for some reason you can not respond to your Apple Watch, and you're immobile for about a minute, it will begin a 15-second countdown while vibrating and sounding a progressively louder alarm.

Although the new iPhones are receiving their share of limelight, Apple Watch Series 4 too managed to get a mention in several headlines for its bigger screen, new features and a more complicated set of functions on the display. But on harder surfaces it worked fine.

Moving on to the Apple Watch Series 4 ad, the 30-second spot goes by the name of "Better You", and focuses on the fitness-related benefits of the Apple Watch.

Amazingly, despite the number of components involved, Apple Watch Series 4 scores pretty well on iFixit's repairability scale: 6 out of 10.

The new S4 chip includes an ST Microelectronics ST33G1M2 32-bit MCU, the eSim found in the Apple Watch 3 and now the iPhone XS. Its speaker is also 50% louder than the Series 3.

The battery capacity has been increased about 4% to 1.113 Wh (291.8 mAh at 3.81 V), up from 1.07 Whr (279 mAh at 3.82 V) in the Apple Watch 3.
