In its short existence, Apple Watch has gone from a niche wearable to become the most popular watch in the world.

Today Apple revealed the Apple Watch Series 4 in all its big display-toting glory.

Disclosed at the Apple event life streamed from its Cupertino, California headquarters, the S4 Watch is two times faster, has a 30 percent larger display, is swimproof, and has better speakers.

Like previous Apple Watch models, the Series 4 is available in a wide range of case materials and color options.

Arguably the Series 4's most interesting feature is a new heart sensor that can perform an electrocardiogram from your wrist. The first is a notification when your heart rate is too low.

As previous models before it, the Series 4 Apple Watch has an optical heart rate monitor that logs your pulse constantly and alerts you of abnormalities. The electrodes are in the rear of the Watch, built into the back crystal. Williams stated this is the first ECG product available over the counter, directly to the customer. There will also be an ECG app coming later this year that will allow users to record and ECG by placing their finger on the digital crown.

All readings are stored in Apple Health and can be accessed at any time. It also features ECG functionality that has been given a "De Novo" classification by the US FDA. The back of the Series 4 will be made with black ceramic and sapphire, which will apparently allow radio waves to pass through it.

In his keynote address during the launch, its CEO Cook said that the launch of new models of Apple products has brought an end to the anxious wait of millions of fans who have been looking forward to the next-generation iPhones and watches for about a year.
