With latest update, Apple Watch elevates its position as a necessary health wearable

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

The Apple Watch has defied smart watch and wearable conventions to blossom into a vital and necessary option for users requiring smart monitoring. When Apple Watch first came out, it seemed like a solution desperately seeking a problem to solve.

The focus on premium fashion with the Edition blurred the lines even more. Apple has steadily improved and evolved function while retaining form. This means that Apple Watch Series 0 to Series 3 looked identical while adding better performance, water resistance, LTE-data functionality as well as more detailed heart-rate tracking.

Apple Watch Series 4 is also a no-brainer of active people or anyone desiring to be more active. Aside from tracking activity and guiding users through a battery of exercises, it also motivates users to move and even challenge each other.

Apple Watch Series 4, which is the most dramatic update to the line in terms of design as well as functionality now gives users an even larger display, slighly larger sizes and the addition of an ECG (Electro Cardiogram), high and low heart rate monitoring that beam alert when it senses irregularities.

Apple Watch Series 4 also incorporates Fall Detection, which is super helpful for a large segment of users such as recovering patients or convalescing individuals. This functionality is further expanded by the ability to send SOS or call 911 if the person doesn't get up, potentially saving lives.

While Apple Watch was initially considered a frivolous adjunct to iPhones, it has now elevates its position as a necessary health and fitness tool for patients with pre-existing conditions or those who need to monitor their vitals more closely.

Stay tuned for a comprehensive review of the Apple Watch Series 4 in the coming weeks as I integrate it into my fitness as well as personal health monitoring regimen.
