The stage was set in September 2018. It was iPhone’s big event. The day where journalist and Apple fans alike lusted over the latest and greatest iPhone. But a funny thing happened on the way to the announcement: Apple Watch Series 4 took everyone's breath away!
The Apple Watch has, of course, been around for three years and seen several updates. But 2018 was different: the watch was finally ready for the masses. This wasn’t a watch for early adopters or fitness buffs--this was the watch your parents and grandparents would get behind.
In addition to all the great features Apple Watch has always had, series 4 is slimmer (yet with a screen that is somehow bigger), has optional cellular for making phone calls and streaming music without your phone, and drop detection (so if you fall and can’t get up, the fire department is dispatched to your location). Everything about it was designed to motivate you to be more active.
As amazing as all the new features are, it’s not quite as easy to use as an iPhone; the lack of buttons, the smaller screen, and general UI can make a frustrated initial experience. The point of this book is to help new Apple Watch users (and users updating to Watch OS 5 from an older device) get the most out their investment.
Are you ready to start enjoying your new Apple Watch? Then let’s get started!
