    Engadget Review

    Earlier Apple Watches were impressive wearables, but the new Series 4 is the strongest argument yet for wearing a smartwatch. And that’s not just because of bigger, edge-to-edge screen or its improved fitness tracking either. The combination of a more powerful processor and thoughtful, feature-rich software make the Series 4 the most capable wearable around. Solid battery life and potentially life-saving new heart tracking features only sweeten the deal. These improvements will cost you, though: The entry-level, 40m Apple Watch Series 4 starts at $399, or $70 more than the model it replaces. Ultimately though, all of the little improvements have made a lasting impact on the overall Apple Watch experience. If you’re considering buying a smartwatch for your iPhone, this one is worth the splurge.
