Feature By Roger Fingas Monday, April 16, 2018, 04:57 am PT (07:57 am ET) For a lot of people, Apple may have scratched off a major wishlist item with the addition of LTE to the Apple Watch Series 3. There are still plenty of things we'd like to see in the inevitable Apple Watch Series 4, though. A "Series 4" due this fall is rumored to be getting a bigger display, a new form factor, and battery and health sensor improvements. There's still plenty of room for improvement on top of that.Week-long battery life Although the Series 3 can potentially last up to two days with light use, let's face it —charging is usually a nightly ritual for Watch owners.

Apple Watch Series 3 debuted in September of 2017 but, as is my wont, I'm already thinking about the next version. What will it look like? What new features will it have that pique my fancy? May 31, 2018: Apple Watch Series 4 to delete the bezels like iPhone X Apple Watch currently has relatively large bezels around the display. But, that might be about to change. Mark Gurman, writing for Bloomberg: The company is working on a pair of new Apple Watches that keep the overall size of the current models, but include slightly larger, edge-to-edge screens, according to a person familiar with the product's development.
