Apple Watch Series 4 Destroys Older Models in Speed Test!

The Apple Watch Series 4, launched last week, features a new dual-core S4 chip that’s significantly faster than the S3 chip in the Series 3, and, of course, the chips used in older Apple Watch models.

We did a side-by-side comparison of the Apple Watch Series 4 to the original Apple Watch, the Series 1 models, the Series 2 models, and the Apple Watch Series 3 to see how far the Apple Watch has come since it was first introduced in 2015.



  1. i have an S2. I'm definitely going to upgrade to the 4. my biggest issue is when i receive a text, and i am responding, the watch interrupts me responding when another notification is incoming. GRINDS MY GEARS. how can i fix that?

  2. Looks like there isn't much of a speed difference between 3 vs 4 except on boot up.

  3. Start up time for my series 2 is only about two minutes and 20 seconds on average

  4. Hey I'm a sophomore in high school with a 6s plus and a s1, should I upgrade to a 10 and s4?

  5. I'd hope it'd be faster than the previous ones. It'd be a shit upgrade otherwise.

  6. i’m on series 0
    i had an iPhone 6s

    my 6s was slow and dying, so i got the Xs on launch 😊
    but i do need to upgrade the watch, i’m thinking of doing it as a gift to myself for Christmas

  7. Should have made this test with original o.s version.

  8. All I use my watch for is texts notifications and checking the time. I think Series 2 is good enough for me.

  9. I forgot how long the Apple Watches took to boot up, since I never fully turn my off. Why is it that they take way longer to turn on the iPhones or iPads and even Macs?

  10. No way in hell am I spending 500 dollars for a watch to be obsolete in a year

  11. What happened to your color correction, guys? It's the second video where the green exercise ring is yellow

  12. Woah, the Apple Watch 4 is so sexy. I mean, that screen looks amazing.

  13. Mac rumours “Apple Watch series 4 DESTROYS series 3”

    Also Mac rumours “yeah the series 3 and 4 are basically the same speed”

  14. Like apple did for older phones.. they did the same for apple watch as well.. slow older models via software upgrade… apple watch 0 was never this slow before on bootup

  15. Series 3 is much faster than in this video. I dunno if you got a dud or what.

  16. Check back in 4 years, I wonder if the series 4 will be as slow as series 0. Most likely. Apple's new software slow stuff down.

  17. Not much of a difference between series 3 and 4. I will wait for the next series.

  18. Had a Series 1 and preordered the series 4 so I have it about two weeks now. For me, the upgrade was incredible and a jump forward by everything you can think of. In that matter I would definitively recommend upgrading when you are in a comparable situation.

  19. Were there 5 series of watches?

    First Series revealed 9/2014
    Second series revealed 9/2016
    Third series revealed 9/2017
    And fourth series just revealed

  20. I’m still on Series 0 and it does the job(Nike Run app and Strava) runs fine. But I’ll still pick up Series 4 on my birthday next month! 😄

  21. I think this is a no brainer upgrade for the series 0,1,2, but the series 3 is still amazing!

  22. However, Apple Watch Series 4 does NOT destroy older models in DELIVERY time. Apple stores in my area still don't have them, yet I placed an order in the store on the opening Friday morning. (The charger for my Xs Max is also backordered.)

  23. Wait, wait, wait. 5 minutes to boot A WATCH? I know it's the oldest model and that it's not a thing you'll do often, but still… 5 MINUTES???
