A comparison: 4 generations of Apple Watch

Comparing the Apple Watch

 

Apple Watch was marketed as "the next chapter in Apple's story" when it was unveiled in 2014 alongside iPhone 6. And throughout its brief history, it has transcended the wearable tech market, bringing Internet connectivity, text messaging, fitness tracking and more, right to your wrist. 

The latest in the line, Apple Watch Series 4, was introduced to the public in September 2018 so let's take a look at a spec comparison chart to help you decide which version might be best for you (using the GPS + Cellular models for both Series 3 & 4). Apple Watch and Verizon, America's largest and most reliable network, form the ultimate combination of connectivity and dependability.
