  • Xiaomi and Apple have supplanted Fitbit as co-leaders in the global wearables market

Apple just announced its watchOS 4 for the Apple Watch at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) of 2017.

watchOS 4 is also gaining a host of new features to help you get the most out of your workout.

The operating system adds a new Siri watch face, which dynamically adjusts its content according to your behaviour and schedule. The Siri face has been integrated with the enhanced version of Siri which now uses machine learning to suggest more personalized information. We're halfway there already after Apple added the watch face gallery in iOS 10, but that's just for new first-party Apple Watch faces.

Improvements to the Workout app will enable you to more accurately collect data from pool and HIIT workouts.

Focusing on OS across its devices, Apple announced the new WatchOS 4 for Apple Watch.

Among the other updates for workout fans, there's GymKit, which gives users the ability to tap your NFC-enabled watch against workout equipment.

Apple is also teaming with a number of fitness equipment providers like TurboGym, which makes it possible to directly sync workout data back to the Apple Watch.

With watchOS 4, Apple Watch users can make and receive person to person payments quickly, easily and securely with friends and family with Apple Pay®, within Messages or using Siri.

The faces are nice, but the biggest focus for watchOS 4 goes down in the gym.

Native sleep tracking software has so far been missing on the Apple Watch range, despite its popularity among rival devices.

For example, if you rest at the end of the pool while swimming it will workout how many lengths you've been doing. One of the new features will be a Siri-powered watch face with "proactive" information that changes using Siri's intelligence. You can also morph these patterns onto your images by simply rotating the crown at the top-left corner of the display.

You can automatically get Apple music mixes, with album art. The changes to the Music app are not only in design, but now it's built to connect directly to the Workout app.

The Activity app is also getting an overhaul with watchOS 4.

You'll also have access to more of your favorite songs. The main attraction is reliable syncing while the app runs in the background. Apple's more than 100,000 employees are dedicated to making the best products on earth, and to leaving the world better than we found it. You can also control your music playing during a workout by swiping on the watch and hitting play or pause.
