The IT Nerd Award For The Best Accessory Of 2018 Goes To: Apple Watch Series 4 With LTE


The Apple Watch has been out since 2015 and has just been regarded as an accessory to those on Team iPhone for the most part. But with the Apple Watch Series 4, things have changed. Apple now has a device that legitimately can save lives and help to make your life better. That sounds a bit over the top, but it’s not. Let me list why that is:

  • The Apple Watch now detects fast and slow heart rates. Both of with are highly dangerous and if you got an alert like this, you should seek medical attention.
  • The ECG feature that is only available on Series 4 Apple Watches in the USA (for now) can detect conditions like Afib which is highly dangerous and requires rapid medical attention.
  • Another feature that is unique to the Series 4 Apple Watch is fall detection. It’s turned on by default for those who are 65 or over. But you might consider turning it on regardless as it will alert emergency services along with the contacts that you define if you’ve fallen and cannot respond because you’re unconscious or the like.
  • It’s fitness game has been seriously improved as it is way better at tracking your activities and you have more activities to choose from.

All of that is now done in a package that looks stylish, and with the larger screens is now easier to read. Plus it is faster and has apps that cover a large number of use cases. Quite simply it’s the best wearable device out there. Sure it’s still only for those on Team iPhone, but it’s so good that those on Team Android may be tempted to switch to Team iPhone to use what I consider to be the best wearable device out there at the moment. The Apple Watch Series 4 is a well deserved winner of the IT Nerd Award for best accessory.
