The Apple Watch is the most personal product offered by Apple to date, and it is designed to be worn during all your daily activities, from morning workouts to nights out. It boasts a mirror finish with a diamond-like carbon layer for protecting the Retina display and is incredibly scratch resistant.
The watch’s face itself is a touch screen, but to make things simpler, you can turn a side button called the Digital Crown to scroll through lists, zoom into maps, and more. The Digital Crown can also be pressed in to access the main screen. The watch’s only other button is located directly under the Digital Crown, which brings up a Friends menu from which you can quickly send a message, make a call, or communicate in unique new ways. The watch can be set to work properly on either wrist. With a force-sensitive Retina display and a 272 x 340 resolution, the watch face distinguishes between a tap and a press depending on how hard you push. In many apps, tapping and pressing do different things. The Taptic Engine allows you to experience communication that can be felt by taps on your wrist. The tech can produce different tapping sensations for different functions, and subtle audio cues alert you to notifications, incoming calls, messages, etc. This allows you to send a tap to a fellow Apple Watch wearer’s wrist, sketch and share a quick doodle, or use as a Walkie Talkie and trade sound bites, as well as heartbeat that you can send to someone else and they’ll feel your heartbeat on their wrist. In addition, it features Apple Pay and can be used at participating retail and online stores to buy stuff quickly and securely.
With its enhanced ability to read your body’s movements and heart rate, the watch is better equipped than iPhone to track health-related data. Using colorful circles to measure how many calories you’ve burned, minutes of exercise, and how much you stand instead of sitting, you’re encouraged to fill as many circles as you can each day to stay active. The Workout app tracks your time, pace, distance, and calories and suggests fitness goals and helps you set reminders, as well as offering rewards badges to commemorate your accomplishments. Enjoy connectivity wherever you go with this Apple watch that can be connected to your iPhone 5 or newer iPhone device. Mostly, the watch uses the iPhone’s internet connection when Wi-Fi connectivity isn’t possible, enabling the iPhone to handle most of the processing functions and allowing the Apple Watch's battery to last much longer. The watch lasts up to 18 hours on a single charge as it saves power by turning off the screen until you raise your arm to look at it. It is charged easily with the included inductive charging cable that quickly latches on using magnets.
