Four Apple Watch generations

by Volker Weber


Number four is a complete redesign. And it is as thin as the original. The thickness never bothered by, but Apple Watch has gained from the original to the Series 3. Now it's back, and it does feel completely different.


You can also see that it is slightly larger, but you will only notice it when they are arranged in this pattern. The back is now completely glass and ceramic, instead of two LEDs and two sensors, it has one LED (array) and eight sensors arranged in a circle. And you can see the two metal contacts to be used by the ECG/EKG.


It’s odd. The new one is a bit thinner but bigger. Yet it feels so much smaller and better. And the bigger screen is so much easier to read, especially with aging eyes.
