The Apple Watch can do things like measure your heartbeat and works like a walkie-talkie when used together with an iPhone 5 or newer iPhone. It can also access the Internet to download and run apps. Because of this, many people call it a "smartwatch".
The Apple Watch was released on April 24, 2015 and quickly became the best-selling wearable device with 4.2 million sold in the second quarter of the 2015.
The second generation of Apple Watches were released in September 2016: the Apple Watch Series 1 and Apple Watch Series 2, while the first generation was discontinued.
The Apple Watch Series 3 was released on September 22, 2017 alongside the discontinuation of the Apple Watch Series 2.
The Apple Watch Series 4 was announced on September 12, 2018, with the Apple Watch Series 1 no longer being produced.
