Apple Watch was one of the most trending topics when it came to discussing about products to be launched by Apple this year.Finally everything became clear when Apple launched their first ever Watch on September 9th,2014 in their event at Cupertino. Apple Watch is expected to be most personal device yet and will improve users relationship with technology.Apple has put in a lot of thought in their Apple Watch as it seems to cover all the aspects/scenarios where it could be used and provide a much better user experience.
Earlier rumored or expected name(also mentioned in my earlier post) iWatch didn’t come out to be true as Apple launched it with a simple name Apple Watch unlike their Tablet and Smartphone which have an ‘i’ before the actual name.Apple Watch has a lot of features which are commendable.
Apple Watch Features
Synced with your iPhone
Apple Watch is synced with your iPhone and user can receive/make calls,view/reply to messages mails,get reminders,alerts and navigate.
Apple Pay is also supported by Apple Watch and you can make payments via Apple Watch rather than searching for your wallet or credit/debit card.
Fast and More interactive way to communicate
With Apple Watch its just not about formal communication its about making a real connection.The messages now are not just words but make the communication much more interesting and fast.
Multiple Type of Notifications
Apple Watch gives you notification for your messages,mails and phone calls.User will get a different type of notification depending on message,mail or call.The best part is Apple Watch gets your attention by tapping on the wrist and it will feel like a person contacting is with right next to you.
With most of the smart watches launched till now the most irritating thing is the way the alerts and notifications appear and sound which is pretty annoying.However, Apple has given it a deep thought and the notifications and alerts in Apple Watch would be just like a little tap which of course will not interfere or annoy you.
Health Tracker -Activity App
Apple Watch comes with PPG (photoplethysmogram) sensor on the back side of the Watch.The sensor in the Watch tracks the blood flow by shining light on the skin and measuring how it scatters off your blood vessels. This data from the activity application on Watch will be collected by Health App( in your iPhone) coming in IOS 8 which will be available to users on September 17th.
