Apple unveils watchOS 4 with a ton of new features

It includes many new features, such as updated applications, new watch faces, and improved general functionality.

Apple outlined its watchOS 4 and the aim is to provide more information via Siri, notifications and a format that rhymes with Google Now's card approach. WatchKit for watchOS 4 is available immediately for iOS Developer Program members at developer.apple.com.

Siri is being positioned as a more proactive helper on the Apple Watch.

Apple has announced the release of watch OS4, the next version of its smartwatch operating, and it is expected to be made public in this fall ( around September). The update features an enhanced Workout app and introduces GymKit, a technology platform that will offer customers connected workouts with cardio equipment.

If you've ever tried to track your indoor workouts, you may have noticed some discrepancies between what your fitness tracker tells you and what the treadmill tells you, and it can be hard to tell which one to listen to.


We also have our fingers crossed that it'll be easier to combine your watchOS fitness stats with other third-party apps, but there are no rumors to back this up at the moment.

In watchOS 4, the Music experience is getting a redesign and revamp. If you're on the go and can't reach your phone, you'll be able to send funds to your contacts from the Watch.

Some are hoping it may come with a store to download Watch faces directly from, but that's unlikely, as we reckon that if Apple was going to add such a feature it would have done before now.

Toy Story watch facesIn addition to the Siri watch face, new Toy Story watch faces bring to life favorite Pixar characters including Woody, Jessie and Buzz Lightyear, while the Kaleidoscope watch face turns static images into mesmerizing patterns. In the demonstration shown by Apple this week, the Apple Watch attained information from gym equipment using NFC.
