WatchOS 4 for Apple smartwatches

Fitness activities include new milestone goals and improvements the workout interface.

Apple outlined its watchOS 4 and the aim is to provide more information via Siri, notifications and a format that rhymes with Google Now's card approach.

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. Moreover, the last major update of the operating system of Apple's smartwatch will make your life easier with the watch.

Siri is being positioned as a more proactive helper on the Apple Watch. "We've created a truly individualized 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're seamlessly bringing users their favorite music right on the wrist".

Apple also introduced new summer band colors, giving customers more options than ever to express their personal style. It may well be that the company is planning some other sports for the app as well, and we expect to see extended features for sharing your workouts with friends too. Apple prefaced this feature by saying that sometimes your gym equipment can better sense data that your Apple Watch can't, or vice versa.

WatchOS 4 is in developer preview now. You can also add the ability to track multiple workouts in one sessions.

Big news for more hardened fitness fanatics is the addition of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Apple Watch-enabled gym equipment will begin rolling out this fall.

Apple says it is automatically syncing content from the Apple Watch it thinks you'll want to listen to, so your mixes and playlists and new albums will all be available on the Watch without you having to mess around with transfers. Apple recently bought the sleep tracking app Beddit and we expect some of those features to be included on the Apple Watch 3 as well as watchOS 4.
