In June 2018, Ming-Chi Kuo stated on the website MacRumors that he expected to see appear a new Apple Watch in the fall and that it would have a wider screen than previous models.
More concretely, in August 2018, many of the bracelets for the old Apple Watch have been removed from the sale. Apple is expected to soon present a new collection of accessories for his shows, probably at the same time as the Apple Watch Series 4.
Also note that Apple has received the approval of the Commission eurasian economic (EEC) to launch three new watches, which are listed as operating in WatchOS 5.
According to the site Consomac, six new versions are in preparation, and not eight as in 2017. Apple had released two GPS models, and six models 4G, and consumers had the choice between three types of dial (steel, aluminum and ceramics).
How much will the Apple Watch 4 ? .
At the time of writing these lines, the Apple Watch Series 3 with GPS costs 369 €.
($329) and while the model of GPS + Cellular is sold from 449 €( $399)
The Apple Watch 4 should roughly cost the same thing while the previous models will benefit from a substantial reduction.
What will be the design of the Apple Watch Series 4 ? .
Apart from a few minor details (the red point on the knob, the colors available..), the Apple Watch has the same design regardless of its generation. We believe, however, that the Series 4 will be different.
The Apple Watch 4 could be thinner, with edges refined and a screen 15% larger.
According to the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple Watch Series 4 will have a screen 15 % larger than the Series 3. How ? Probably tapering the edges of the watch.
It predicts as well as the successor of the watch is 38 mm will be a display of 39.9 mm, while the successor of the model 42 mm will make 45,2 mm.
According to Fast Company, Apple is working on the development of a tactile button (sensitive to different pressures and movements) to replace the wheel used on the Apple Watch.
It could simply be inspired by the iPhone 7 and 8. In fact, there is no need to press the Home button on these models, they automatically detect the tip of the finger to its vibrations.
It would seem that in the long term, Apple wants to get rid fully of button for his watch, so the fit is 100% waterproof.
A recurring rumor suggests that Apple has decided to redesign completely the design of its shows connected and make its dial .. round.
Many of the watches Android Wear smartwatches have round dials (Huawei Watch 2, Moto 360..), but we would be surprised that the california firm to follow suit.
Apple should have however filed a patent (number 9,940,866) for an “electronic device having a display with edges, curves”.
The images below represent what Apple Watch round might look like.
What are the technical features of the Apple Watch Series 4 ? .

A bracelet is intelligent .
The rumor of the most persistent relating to the strap of the Apple Watch is that now, it would be ‘smart’.
Apple is attempting to place some sensors on its strap, to free up more space on the inside of the dial.
A patent dating back to 2015 also shows that Apple would develop a bracelet with its own battery.
Another patent of May 2017 represents an Apple Watch with a display continues all around the bracelet.
A patent filed in June 2018 suggests that Apple is planning to build a bracelet that would be capable of measuring the blood pressure.
That said, in 2015, Cook announced that the innovations in the field of health took more time to implement due to FDA regulations. So it could be that we don’t see getting new sensors immediately.
It is likely that the Apple Watch Series 4 has an improved battery. As we stated above, Apple would develop a bracelet that is able to contain the energy for the battery of the watch.
The site Apple Insider indicates that a patent has been filed for an ‘electronic device auxiliary traceable to an electronic device portable and which may transmit energy’.
