The Society for Information Display (SID) named the Apple Watch Series 4 one of the “Displays of the Year” during the 2019 Display Industry Awards announced at Display Week.
The Apple Watch Series 4 has a redesigned OLED Display. This year this was the only Apple product to get this award, last year in 2018 Display Industry Awards, the iPhone X and iPad Pro won “Displays of the Year” Award.
A device wins “Displays of the Year” considering their “high-quality innovative work taking place in the display industry at every level.” The Watch won because of its outstanding features.
The SID explains, why the Apple Watch Series 4 got this award:
While retaining the original signature design, the fourth-generation Apple Watchhas been refined, combining new hardware and software enhancements into a singular, unified form. The striking display, which is more than 30 percent larger at 40 mm or 44 mm, depending on the model, seamlessly integrates into the thinner, smaller case, while the new interface provides more information with richer detail. The display is the defining feature of Apple Watch, and Series 4 pushes that feature farther than ever. The challenge for designers was to make the display bigger without noticeably increasing the size of the case or compromising the battery life. Narrower borders enable a viewing area that’s more than 30 percent larger, while a new display technology called LTPO improves power efficiency, helping users get through the day on a single charge.
Other 2019 winners include Samsung for “The Wall” modular microLED 8K display, Sony for its Crystal LED Display System with microLED technology. Lenovo, Japan Displays and others were also awarded in different categories.
