The ECG has even received clearance from the FDA.

Apple has shown off the next iteration of its Apple Watch, which has been "redesigned and re-engineered".

Gottlieb and Shuren pointed to the FDA's digital health action plan unveiled a year ago, aimed at streamlining approvals for software posing a lower risk than traditional medical devices.

Williams also said the watch's battery life would be the same as the previous edition of the Apple Watch, at 18 hours.

And the Series 4 will be available in Singapore from Sept 21 with the cellular version exclusive with Singtel.

The follow-up to last year's Series 3 Watch eschews a complete overhaul for subtle changes that increase its screen size while adding other improvements to the Watch's hardware. Both devices will come in silver, gold and space grey aluminum, and gold, silver and space black stainless steel. Backward compatible is available on the part of wristbands. Expect further details momentarily - updating soon! Apple Watch Series 4 with GPS will start at $399, while the GPS + Cellular configuration will be available starting from $499.

Apple introduced Apple Watch Series 4 on Wednesday during its "Gather Round" media event.


Inside the Apple Watch Series 4 is a new 64-bit dual-core S4 processor, which Apple claims offers up to 2x faster performance.

Fall detection utilizes a next-generation accelerometer and gyroscope, which measures up to 32 g-forces, along with custom algorithms to identify when hard falls occur. The device's digital crown on the side has a new haptic feedback feature to make it feel like a better wheel.

Apple finally unveiled the new Apple Watch Series 4 at an event this week alongside the new iPhone XS, iPad Pro and a whole host of other cool tech.

As previous models before it, the Series 4 Apple Watch has an optical heart rate monitor that logs your pulse constantly and alerts you of abnormalities. All info is stored in the Health app and can be shared with your doctor. But this feature will only available in the United States and later this year.

The new watch faces can fit up to eight complications, so you can see bite-sized information at a glance from your most-used apps.

The watches new electric heart censor allows users to take an ECG test to analyze their heart rhythm.
