Apple Watch Series 4 teardown reveals big changes on the inside

  • FDA Recognizes New Apple Watch as Medical Device

At the end of the countdown, the Apple Watch will contact emergency services along with the emergency contacts, with the location of the user. The watch essentially vibrates, sounds an alarm, and displays an alert. Given how much Apple advertised that safety feature, some might have expected it to be enabled by default for all.

Earlier this month, Apple took the covers off the latest iteration of its Watch lineup in the form of new Series 4 models, with reduced bezels and increased screen sizes. The tech giant warns in its Support document that the Apple Watch Series 4 algorithms aren't foolproof. If your age in the Watch or iOS Health app is not set or set below 65, you have to enable Fall Detection manually.

In addition to this, several YouTube channels over the weekend posted videos testing the Fall Detector and how hard a fall has to be to trigger it. But it is enabled only for people aging 65 or older when they set up the Apple Watch and the iOS Health app. Many reported that they could not trigger a fall alert on objective, but it's not clear if all of them had the feature turned on. You can tell Apple Watch you fell but you're okay, or you can tell it you didn't fall at all.

The Apple Watch Series 4 is about as popular as expected, needing around a month to ship from the manufacturer's USA e-store if you order it today, but if you've already received an early copy, it might not be a good idea to start tearing it down and verify its repairability.

While talking about the Watch Series 4, Apple also explained about one of the key features - Fall detector.

The new S4 chip includes an ST Microelectronics ST33G1M2 32-bit MCU, the eSim found in the Apple Watch 3 and now the iPhone XS.

The experts' coin that while the original Apple Watch used too much glue and was awkwardly layered together, the Series 4 seems to be more thoughtfully laid out.
