watchOS 4: the big changes coming to your Apple Watch

Apple has just unveiled the latest update to its wearable OS. These are the killer updates you can look forward to…

1. New watch faces

Unfortunately we didn’t get the third party watch face store we were hoping for. Instead we got three more faces from Apple.

The good news is, they’re great watch faces!

The first one shown was Siri Intelligence. This shows you relevant information based on the time and your location. For example, it’ll show you the commute time and weather in the morning, or flight details when you get to the airport.

There’s also our new favourites, Toy Story watch faces! These are the cute animated characters we all know and love, including Woody, Buzz and Jesse.

Finally, there’s a new attractive kaleidoscope face

2. Better activity tracking

Activity tracking is one of the best things about the Apple Watch. Apple have just made it even better, with achievable daily and monthly challenges, High Intensity Interval Training, and auto logging swimming laps.

It’s also quicker and easier to start work outs, so it doesn’t get in the way as much, and it’s easy to switch between different workouts in a single session.

Finally, the Apple Watch can now be paired with select gym equipment so data is more reliable and accurate. It’s easy to pair the Watch with your machine thanks to NFC.

3. Listening to music is easier

The Apple Music app is getting a neat update, with automatic recommendations, multiple play lists, and a better UI.

That's it...

Yep, that’s it. Apple really ploughed through this, and we didn’t get any of the really cool features we were hoping to get with watchOS 4, which you can still read.

You’ll be able to enjoy all of these updates in Autumn, for free.
