Apple revealed the latest version of its watchOS, the operating system that defines the features for its Apple Watch devices. With the Siri watch face on, you can raise your wrist throughout the day to receive dynamic information, such as traffic information if you're about to leave work and sunset times in the evening. Another set of Watchfaces includes characters from Toy Story - Woody, Jesse, Buzz included.

Aside from watch faces, there are new animations and updates to the in-built apps, including the fitness app which has a whole new UI.

The control center will also have a flashlight functionality too, that according to Apple will be able to flash to make it safer if you go running with your Apple Watch at night.

Called WatchOS 4, it'll replace WatchOS 3 and is meant for Apple Watch.

Apple announced some new improvements to Apple Music, and said that users will be able to more easily find apps through a redesigned dock.

As is becoming the trend, the portion of Apple's WWDC conference dedicated to the Apple Watch featured a heavy focus on the watch's health and fitness features, which continue to be the wearable's hallmark feature set. It can also measure your high intensity workout training.

Apple improved the fitness capabilities of the watchOS.

The company kicked off the proceedings with details on the Apple Watch operating system update. You can also cycle through multiple workout types in a single session.

To improve the AirPods experience, watchOS4 delivers an updated Music app, in addition to Apple News and a new way to switch between recently used apps. This update also brings a stream of information from Siri - using machine learning to make the best guess at what you'll want next. There's also that trippy kaleidoscope watchface that will help you relive the 70's. With the update, you can navigate through the album art by turning the Digital Crown.

The Apple App Store is also getting a revamp, picking up clues from Apple Music's design which has apparently been successful with the public.

Apple released WatchOS 4 to developers on 5 June. There's also support for audio recording in the background navigation, screen auto-rotate and native Core Bluetooth. Instead we got three more faces from Apple. Instant playlists will get played and they can be toggled by swiping left on the active Workout page.
