Apple reveals watchOS 4: Siri-powered updates, fitness syncing, and music playlists

But Apple still hasn't launched a way to sell third-party watch faces. Well, Apple didn't disappoint. So for all intents and purposes, it's basically the Apple Watch's own version of Google Now. Try and guess which is which.

"Apple Watch is the ultimate device for a healthy life and is now more intelligent than ever with watchOS 4", said Jeff Williams, Apple's chief operating officer.

Siri is being positioned as a more proactive helper on the Apple Watch. It includes new features for watchfaces, such as complications updating based on time of day or location, and a new Siri-based watchface. The watch face is now smarter with machine learning capabilities that displays information relevant to your taste. That includes the likes of when you'll need to leave for your next meeting, hopefully taking into account traffic conditions. These are workouts built around periods of intense activity followed by recovery periods and are seen as a more effective workout over a shorter period of time compared to steady-state exercise, such as jogging. For example, it'll show you the commute time and weather in the morning, or flight details when you get to the airport. WatchOS 4 adds some new monthly challenges to the Activity app.

So far, so very promising.

There's also some next-gen Disney Watch faces to continue the legacy of Mickey and Minnie. Needless to say, Woody, Buzz and Jessie looks quite fun as the new watch faces. Attendees get direct access to Apple engineers, and can participate in a variety of in-depth sessions covering a wide range of subjects. For instance, you may see a character climbing on to the watch face from below.

Okay, I know it sounds super cool and trust me, it actually is.

Well, they can't all be good, can they?

In case you're into triathlons, pentathlon, or even decathlons, watchOS 4 will let you easily switch between different sports tracking by simply swiping over the activity app's home screen. You remember kaleidoscopes, right? If you so desire.
