Apple previews WatchOS 4 for Apple Watch

The feature will be made available on watchOS 4, Apple's Kevin Lynch told attendees at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) taking place in California this week, where it was also announced that Apple will be adding support for NFC tags to iPhone 7 and 7 Plus devices through the iOS 11 operating system.

Apple has sold us a dream with its Keynote. Heart rate monitoring of HIIT workouts have typically been an area where wearables have struggled but we found the Apple Watch Series 2's heart rate sensor proved surprisingly capable.

We also have our fingers crossed that it'll be easier to combine your watchOS fitness stats with other third-party apps, but there are no rumors to back this up at the moment. Apple Watch-enabled fitness equipment will be coming this fall, too. With watchOS 4 four you can accurately count down all the calories, you burned during your toughest workouts. We're not so sure about this, but go on...

This update allows NFC in the Apple Watch to work with something outside of Apple Pay. Another set of Watchfaces includes characters from Toy Story - Woody, Jesse, Buzz included. Multiple workouts can be combined back-to-back, letting you train for demanding physical events like triathlons without having to return to the Watch between stages.

For developers, this means there is more options to better integrate the apps they make for the Apple Watch with watchOS 4's native features. New complications include Now Playing and Apple News.Apple Watch summer bandApple also introduced new summer band colors, giving customers more options than ever to express their personal style. New colors of the Nike Sport Band are also available. There's also support for audio recording in the background navigation, screen auto-rotate and native Core Bluetooth.

Gym Connect will launch this wall with WatchOS 4, which will be a free upgrade this fall for all Apple Watch users.
