WatchOS 4.0 New Features Among Improved Fitness Tracking and New Fixes

The most recent operating system for the Apple Watch, the WatchOS 4.0, was announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference back in June 2017 and it made its debut in September of that year.

This update is available not only for the Apple Watch Series 3 but also for all older models of the Apple Watch. While the upcoming Apple WatchOS 5 and a new Apple Watch are expected to be launched at the iPhone event that will take place next month, we can still take advantage of the current version of Apple’s operating system for their line of smartwatches. In order to install it, you need to go to “General” and select “Software Update” over there – but only if you have at least 50 percent of battery life. For all those who still haven’t tried WatchOS 4.0, we will present some of the key features of the most recent operating system for all models of Apple Watch.

An improved fitness tracking

The fitness tracking capability has been greatly improved on WatchOS 4.0. Two apps, Fitness and Workout, are now more advanced, the latter allowing the custom workout algorithms for high-intensity training, being especially useful at the gym. Also, the Heart Rate app has seen improvements in calculating both resting and recovery heart rates. Additionally, it is now much easier to start a new workout, which can be done with just one swipe.

User interface

With WatchOS 4.0, the user interface has been simplified, thanks to which the smartwatch is much easier to use. We can now pick from a new list view of apps or a standard view, where all apps are in alphabetical order.

A new Siri watch face

WatchOS 4.0 introduces a new virtual personal assistant, Siri. This face will make your life easier by selecting information it “thinks” can be helpful for you at a specific moment. In order to optimize smart home devices, it uses data from apps, such as the Calendar app or the Home app.

Other improvements

Thanks to WatchOS 4.0, the Music app is now able to automatically update your playlists and favorites for the AirPods. This operating system also expands the Mail app, allowing you to compose a new mail, as well as to view the messages by inbox.
