Dark Sky gets Apple Watch Series 4 Complications

· · Cool Stuff Found

Dark Sky, my favorite local weather app on the iPhone, was updated on Thursday with new complications for Apple Watch Series 4. That means fans of the Infograph watch face get a slick complication that matches the new look Apple is pushing. It looks like the update also fixed a problem where the app defaulted to New York City for forecasts, which kind of defeated the purpose of hyper-local data. Dark Sky costs US$3.99 and is available on Apple’s App Store. The update is free for current users.

Bryan Chaffin and Jeff Gamet can’t get enough of Apple Watch Series 4, even though Jeff is wrong about the Infograph Watch Face. They also find it interesting that a designer got recognized by the world of science, and they weigh whether or not Apple’s plan to avoid sex, violence, and politics with its original TV shows will hurt its streaming service.

Check out Apple’s new spot called Better You for Apple Watch Series 4. It’s a fun spot pushing the idea that we can always improve ourselves, and that Apple Watch Series 4 will help you do that. Couch potato? Get up. Hanging around? Get out and go for a walk. Listen to music while you’re out, too. Take a phone call. In fact, make that walk a jog. No, wait. If you’re going to jog, step it up and make it a run. Or hey, better yet, sprint and then finish that sprint off with a swim in the ocean. I love this spot. It’s compelling, and it tells an easy-to-understand story. The product shots of Apple Watch Series 4 are good, too.

The 44mm display is 32% bigger than the screen on the 42mm model it replaces. She also did the math for pixel density, case dimensions, and more. Check out her comparisons so you’re ready when your new Apple Watch shows up on Friday.
