Apple Watch Series 4 review roundup: There's no other smartwatch like it

8 monthes ago   |   By TheBoyGeniusReport

The brand new Apple Watch nearly stole the show at Apple's iPhone event last week. The fourth-gen smartwatch looks much sleeker than its predecessors, as Apple managed to increase the display and slightly reduce the thickness. But Apple Watch Series 4, which launches in stores later this week, doesn't only bring a major design makeover. It also packs a bunch of new health features unseen on any competing device, including an ECG monitor that's just one touch away. With a few days to go until Apple Watch 4 ships, the first reviews are out and they're all packed with praise for Apple's new...

Fitbit's moving away from a simple step counter into health coaching as it faces competition from the Apple Watch

8 monthes ago   |   By Business Insider

Fitbit has a plan to help it stay relevant as it faces more competition from companies like Apple and Garmin.
It's launching Fitbit Care, a health platform that combines coaching, virtual care, wearable devices, and self-tracking to help employers' and health plans' employees and members get healthier.
For now, the program is just for consumers whose employers, health plans, or health systems opt into it.
Fitbit is making a move to become more than just a fitness device at a time when wearable competition is fierce.
The company on Wednesday announced the launch of Fitbit Care, a health...

IOS 12 leaks confirm the redesigned iPad Pros are coming this fall

Aside from the new iPhones, Apple unveiled only one non-iPhone product last week, the Apple Watch Series 4. While some people wanted Apple to announce the 2018 iPad Pro models and the new MacBooks, we already knew that wouldn't happen at the Gather Round event, thanks to a massive leak before the event. That doesn't mean Apple won't introduce new iPads and MacBooks, and it just so happens that the latest iOS 12 beta contains code that not only confirms new iPad Pros are coming but that they're getting a brand new design as well.

Review: Apple Watch Series 4

8 monthes ago   |   By TechCrunch

Roughly two-and-half minutes into my run, the watch kicks in. There's a haptic buzz on my wrist.
“It looks like you're working out,” the watch face reads. That's followed by a big, yellow button, suggesting I start an indoor run. I tap the neon button and the clock starts, comping me a reasonable approximation of the time it took for the Watch to be sure what sort of activity it was detecting.
I wasn't actually planning to test the feature on this particular run. In all the stretching/music picking/treadmill setting pre-run ritual, I'd just forgotten to set the damn thing. It feels like a...

Apple Watch Series 4 Review: It's all about the display

Apple Watch Series 4 Review: It's all about the display

8 monthes ago   |   By MobileSyrup

I've been a consistent Apple Watch user since the wearable first launched back in 2015. While I wasn't always on board with the Apple Watch as a concept, it's gradually become an essential staple in my life. That killer app that genuinely exemplifies the purpose of a smartwatch still hasn't arrived, and at this point likely never will - but now I think that's okay. Instead, Apple has pivoted the Apple Watch's focus to activity tracking and notifications, a move that puts the wearable in direct competition with Fitbit's devices, as well as the myriad of Wear OS-powered smartwatches out...

Not all doctors agree the Apple Watch Series 4 is good for your health

8 monthes ago   |   By Phone Arena

The latest Apple Watch has gone up for pre-order last Friday, which means super-early adopters are only a couple of days away from getting their hands on the wearable device everyone's talking about.
But the killer new features of the Series 4 will not actually be available at launch, allowing a heated debate around the real-life medical benefits of the $399 and up gadget to continue.
It's no longer a secret that Apple struggled until the very last minute to gain the mandatory FDA approval needed to include an ECG monitor on the company's upgraded ...
