WatchOS 4 Brings More Intelligence & Fitness Features to Apple Watch

Our Apple Watch is pretty much the only reason why we ever do anything that even resembles exercise, and it's getting even more fitness features in watchOS 4.

Focusing on OS across its devices, Apple announced the new WatchOS 4 for Apple Watch.

First up, watchOS 4 will implement a new Siri-based watch face, incorporating advanced Siri integration with deep machine learning algorithms to help present users with a vertically-scrollable list of updates from their various Watch apps.

Also coming with watchOS 4 are kaleidoscope and Toy Story-themed watches.

Aside from watch faces, there are new animations and updates to the in-built apps, including the fitness app which has a whole new UI. You'll be able to simply tap your Apple Watch on an NFC reader in your gym equipment, and your Watch will automatically launch the workout app. The Music app also starts automatically with a workout and there are several other options that you can control like swiping left during the workout to control your music.

Apple's worldwide developers conference 2017 is among the biggest tech events of the year.

Aside from that, watchOS 4 will introduce an improved Music app.

WatchOS is an Apple-developed operating system that powers Apple Watch devices.

watchOS 4 will hit all eligible wearables later this fall. The dev preview will be available today, with a free update available for all Watch users in the fall.

The Activity application is one of the most used ones on the Apple Watch and it is now gaining a slew of new capabilities.

Apple is using Siri to proactively bring information to a new Apple Watch face. You can rotate the Digital Crown to scroll vertically through the various notifications and apps on the face.

Finally, there's a redesigned app dock in watchOS 4, which will let you scramble throw your apps by simply rotating the dial on the side. Apple has also added high-intensity interval training to the Watch and it's now possible to set up a queue of workouts to fire one after another, which could be helpful for something like triathlon training. This is called Gym Connect - and it's not likely the last. This new version of the app include auto-set for pool workouts, personalized achievement updates, and smarter coaching. Native core bluetooth support, for example, is coming to Apple Watch.

It's as if Apple is trying to tell us something.
