Apple outlined its watchOS 4 and the aim is to provide more information via Siri, notifications and a format that rhymes with Google Now's card approach. With the brand new Siri Watch Face, Apple says machine learning will adapt automatically and surface new information each time you raise your wrist. This is essentially a smart selection of information and shortcuts which are relayed to your device based on your schedule, location, time of day and the rest.

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. Finally, users will be able to sync the fitness data the Apple Watch collects with compatible NFC-enabled gym gear by simply bringing the wearable next to it.

The standard Apple Watch is available in 4 different casings, including rose gold and silver, and comes equipped with a sports band, priced at $269. The watchOS 4 will come with a new Music app with new intelligent playlists. It debuted at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in June 2017.

Users will also be able to pick out a playlist to start in sync with their workouts, or alter the playlist from the workout app with a simple swipe.
