Apple Watch Series 1 Difference From 3
So this moment has come. Apple has announced the fourth generation of smart watches. And if differences between past generations were minimal, now everything has changed.
So what are the differences between the Apple Watch Series 4 for 31,990 rubles. from Apple Watch Series 3 for 22,990 rubles.
1. Updated design
After 4 years, the company decided to update the design of the Apple Watch. Let not very much.
Firstly, the size of the case has changed. If earlier the company produced watches in the sizes 38 and 42 mm, now the size has increased to 40 and 44 mm.
Screen size also increased 35% in a 40 mm model and 32% in a 44 mm model. Compared to the previous generation. The display in the Apple Watch Series 4 occupies almost the entire front panel, the frames have become very thin.
Apple Watch Series 4 (44 mm). 977 square mm
Apple Watch Series 4 (40 mm). 759 square mm
Apple Watch Series 3 (42 mm). 740 square mm
Apple Watch Series 3 (38 mm). 563 square mm
The case itself has become thinner. The Series 3 had a thickness of 11.4 mm, the Series 4. 10.7 mm.
And the edges of the new smart watches have become more rounded than the rectangular Series 3.
Below in Series 4, a new electric cardiac activity sensor is installed. Therefore, the company decided to protect him ceramic and sapphire crystal, rather than composite materials in the third model.
From a technical point of view, the 4th generation Apple Watch screen has undergone minor changes. Nevertheless, they are worth mentioning.
Apple Watch Series 4 40 mm. 324 × 394 pixels
Apple Watch Series 4 44 mm. 368 × 448 pixels
Apple Watch Series 3 38 mm. 272 × 340 pixels
Apple Watch Series 3 42 mm. 312 × 390 pixels
The fourth generation of smart watches uses an improved OLED LTPO display. This technology 5-15% more energy efficient, lends itself to more accurate calibration, and also supports higher resolution.
This type of screen will probably be used in future smart watches and smartphones.
Apple Watch Series 4 became the first smart watch companies in which installed 64-bit S4 processor. Prior to this, in all generations, chips with 32-bit architecture were used. Now the watch runs 50% faster.
The speaker increased, due to which its volume increased by fifty%. And they added a microphone to the digital wheel.
In addition, the company worked on the quality of the connection of watches with other gadgets. In this generation, a W3 chip is installed than W2 in Series 3. And also Bluetooth 5.0 (there was Bluetooth 4.2).
In addition, engineers introduced an improved gyroscope, an accelerometer measuring overloads up to 32g, an optical heart rate sensor of the 2nd generation and an Apple Heart Series 4 electric heart rate sensor.
Last coupled with updated Digital Crown with integrated electrodes allows you to take readings of an electrocardiogram (ECG) through a special application. This allows users to better monitor cardiac activity.
So far, Apple has not confirmed that the ECG application will be available.
By the way, Apple introduced a vibration motor into the wheel. So now users will receive a tactile response when they click on the “digital crown”.
And one more thing. The basic version of Series 4 includes 16 GB of internal memory, rather than 8 GB in Series 3.
4. New features and dials
In addition to the ECG sensor, Apple Watch Series 4 also introduced another chip. He allows track falls.
In other words, if the user crashes and does not rise for about a minute, then the smart watch will immediately be dialed to the rescue service.
In addition, for Series 4, the company developed an exclusive Dial “Infograph”, accommodating up to eight extensions at a time (4 in the center and 4 at the edges).
This means that you’ll have more important and useful information on all your applications on your wrist. Perhaps he can compete with informativeness with the Siri dial.
