The Apple Watch Series 4, the latest version of Apple’s smartwatch and the most significant revamp since the wearable’s launch, is now available in Canada.
The Series 4 features a roughly 30 percent larger display when compared to previous versions of the Apple Watch, and a 64-bit dual-core S4 processor that’s twice as fast as the Series 3. The smartwatch also features a built-in electrocardiograph (ECG) sensor — though the feature won’t be available at launch — fall detection and a Digital Crown that now includes haptic feedback.
I’ve spent roughly the last week and a half with Apple’s Series 4 smartwatch and I’ve been very impressed with the wearable, particularly its expansive display. You can find my full review of the Series 4 at this link.
Pricing for the Apple Watch Series 4 ranges from $519 CAD for the 40mm base model with GPS and a Sport Band, to $1,119 CAD for the 44mm cellular stainless steel gold option with a Milanese Loop band.
