Review: Apple Watch Series 4 with Infograph Watch Face

After three iterations of essentially the same watch, Apple introduced the Apple Watch Series 4, which features a completely new design with a slimmer body, a significantly larger display, a thinner case, sensors that can take ECG readings, and Fall Detection.

The Series 4 watch went on sale on September 21 and this review comes later than usual because Apple first provided it on that date. Since its arrival, however, I’ve used it constantly except when sleeping and tested as many features as possible.

All models of the Apple Watch Series 4 – $399 for the Wi-Fi/GPS model and $499 for the model that connects directly to mobile networks – feature a black ceramic and sapphire crystal back and there is a choice of aluminum or stainless steel cases. A new Digital Crown uses haptic feedback and provides a more mechanical and responsive feel when making selections.

Instead of 38 mm and 42 mm models, there are 40 mm and 44 mm models and both have substantially larger screens along with rounded edges and a thinner bezel.

Two new watches are exclusive to the new models, Infograph and Infograph Modular. Taking advantage of the larger display, the new faces can show up to eight and six complications respectively from Apple and third-party apps and I was captivated by the Infograph face, which catapults the Apple Watch into competition with far more expensive and far more mechanical wristwatches.

After about fifteen minutes with the stock Infograph watch face, I changed the face color from white, which was far too bright for my taste, to black.

The standard Infograph face features an analog clock face with a white background. There are four complications available under the watch hands and another four available at the four corners of the device.
