WatchOS 4 detailed: Siri, new Watchfaces, NFC expands

07 June 2017, 04:40 | Candice Butler

It includes new features for watch faces and a Siri-based watch face that filters information shown based on the priority arrived using machine learning.

As per a statement by Apple, watchOS 4 will be available this fall ( September) as a free update to Apple Watch paired with iPhone 5s and later on iOS 11.

Apple introduced WatchOS 4, the newest iteration of the operating system that powers Apple Watch today at WWDC.

Some are hoping it may come with a store to download Watch faces directly from, but that's unlikely, as we reckon that if Apple was going to add such a feature it would have done before now. He added, "We have created a truly individualised experience with the smartest Activity and Workout apps, the Siri watch face that shows you the information you need when you need it, and we are seamlessly bringing users their favourite music right on the wrist". Siri will also provide news headlines from Apple News.

The Activity app is also getting an overhaul with watchOS 4.

If you've ever tried to track your indoor workouts, you may have noticed some discrepancies between what your fitness tracker tells you and what the treadmill tells you, and it can be hard to tell which one to listen to.

Fitness also gets a big push this time around. Apple Watch-enabled fitness equipment will be coming this fall, too. Another set of Watchfaces includes characters from Toy Story - Woody, Jesse, Buzz included.

This update allows NFC in the Apple Watch to work with something outside of Apple Pay.

"Your Watch will automatically launch the workout app and you can connect and then your heart rate is read by the Watch and sent to the equipment and data like incline and speed is sent from the equipment to your Watch and when you start and stop the workout on your gym machine, it does the same thing on your Watch".

There's also new full-face album art designs arranged in a deck of cards that are easier to swipe through.
