I found I could read emails and texts easier. And when I viewed texted pictures of my young nephews, I could now tell who was who. But I have pretty good close-up vision. People who wear reading glasses might still have trouble reading the display without them. And, like earlier models, the Apple Watch Series 4 is a champ when it comes to readability in bright and low-light situations. The watch will also contact emergency services and notify an emergency contact at your request.

The feature, which is automatically enabled for users 65 and older, proved difficult to test with any rigor, because it's hard to simulate realistic spills. We were able to intentionally trigger an alert once, though, with a fairly intense simulated fall. And we accidentally triggered another alert when a tester tossed the watch into a plastic storage bin. We did not involve emergency responders in either case. I take a 2- to 3-mile walk just about every morning.
Every sample we tested earned high marks for accuracy in tracking the two metrics. The Ion-X glass on the aluminum finish watches and the Sapphire Glass on the stainless steel versions both earned favorable scores from our testers after we ran picks of various hardness across the watch faces.
From tracking workouts to keeping an eye on texts and emails, people are using smartwatches for everything. I write about all things "cyber" and your right to privacy. What I enjoy: cooking and learning to code with my kids. I've lived in the Bronx for more than a decade, but as a proud Michigan native, I will always be a die-hard Detroit Tigers fan no matter how much my family and I get harassed at Yankee Stadium.
