WatchOS 4 brings intelligence and new fithess features to Apple Watch

Apple at its WWDC 2017 conference in San Jose, announced the next iteration of watchOS called WatchOS 4, which brings more intelligence with the Siri Watch face and new fitness feature to Apple Watch.

The new Siri watch face will display updated information with each raise of the wrist, based on the time of day, daily routines and pertinent data from apps such as Activity, Alarms, Breathe, Calendar, Maps, Reminders and Wallet, as well as headlines from the new Apple News app for Apple Watch.

Other additions to watch face include Toy Story characters like Woody, Jeesie and Buzz Lightyear, and a new Kaleidoscope watch face that turns static images into mesmerizing patterns.

The Activity app on WatchOS will delivers intelligent coaching features to help close Activity Rings. Users will receive personalized notification if they're close to earning an achievement or suggest what they can do to match yesterday's activity levels. If needed, toward the end of the day, they’ll be told exactly how long they should walk to close their Activity Rings before the day is over. Users will also receive unique Monthly Challenges designed just for them.

The redesigned Music app automatically syncs your New Music Mix, Favorites Mix and most listened to music. 

The Workout app has also been updated, and now includes auto-sets for pool swim workouts and new motion and heart rate algorithms for High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workouts. Another new fitness feature to WatchOS 4 is Gymkit, that allows you to pair Apple Watch directly to treadmills, elliptical, indoor bikes or stair steppers with a simple tap using NFC, and result in more accurate measurements.

Lastly, with watchOS 4, Apple Watch users can also can make and receive person to person payments quickly, easily and securely with friends and family with Apple Pay within Messages or using Siri. When users get paid, they receive the money in their new Apple Pay Cash account and can use it instantly to send to someone or make purchases using Apple Pay in stores and apps, or transfer it to their bank account.

Aside from the watchOS 4, Apple also introduced new summer band colors including vibrant Sports Bands, a bright yellow Classic Buckle and Nike Sport Band options. And as a celebration of diversity and inclusion, Apple is also offering a Pride Edition Woven Nylon in rainbow stripe.

watchOS 4 will be available this fall as a free update to Apple Watch paired with iPhone 5s and later on iOS 11.
