A recent rumour has suggested that with the Apple Watch 4, Apple might be ready to increase the resolution of its wearable smartwatch to 480 x 384. Obviously that8217;s a long way off the sorts of resolutions you can find on smartphones, but it8217;s a decent improvement over previous Apple Watches.
How decent? Well, if these rumoured specs are true, we8217;re looking an an approximate 50% increase in the total amount of pixels on the Apple Watch8217;s screen, which should result in much more real estate being offered to everything from text messages to health data.
But the Apple Watch 3 is a year old at this point, and there have been plenty of smartwatches released over the course of 2018. How does this rumoured resolution compare to them?
Although it8217;s not yet been released, the Galaxy Watch was announced with a 320 x 320 resolution screen, which has almost half the resolution of the upcoming Apple Watch. In other words, advantage Apple.
If we move along to the TicWatch Pro, which we rate as the second best smartwatch around right now, things look a little better for the competition. However, even the TicWatch8217;s 400 x 400 display still has around 15% less pixels than the tabled specs for the Apple Watch 4.
Finally, compared to the Skagen Falster 2 and Fitbit Versa, it8217;s a 45% and 50% lead for Apple respectively.
Essentially, if these leaked Apple Watch 4 specs end up being accurate, we could be looking at one of the highest resolution screens seen on a 2018 smartwatch.
But these rumoured specs are promising, and we8217;ll find out how accurate they really are when Apple announces the watch − almost certainly at an event next week.
