Surely one of the launch of this 2015 will occur next month of April. We speak of the Apple Watch, the entrance of the firm of Cupertino in the brand new market of the smartwatchs where until now, Android Wear and to a lesser extent Tizen with the latest model from Samsung have been the absolute protagonists.
This market still being born, with hesitant users on the real usefulness of an advanced clock, will receive as Apple Watch without a very clear created path yet. By now sport, quantification and notifications are the areas where the smartwatch wants to catch site of the smartphone in certain circumstances. Takes note of plan to do it the Apple Watch.
There is not a single Apple Watch
The first thing you need to know about the Apple Watch is that only one model there is. One of the categories will be Apple’s product where more variety present company. With a base of three models, straps or the size of own watch leave us with very numerous combinations. Base models are:
- Apple Watch. It will be the main model. Box is stainless steel in silver or black, with a screen protected by Sapphire Crystal and several to choose from, from skin to links and fluoroelastomer belts. In total, with two possible sizes (42 and 38 mm), this version will have 18 possible models.
- Apple Watch Sport. It will be the more affordable model with less potential for customization (10). Box in this case changes to anodized aluminium with silver or grey finish, and two sizes (42 and 38 mm). The screen is Sapphire and has to settle for glass reinforced Ion-X. You will only find with five belts of fluoroelastomer in five colours (white, blue, green, pink and black)
- Apple Watch Edition. It is the most ambitious model when his relationship with fashion and luxury. They are six models, all boxed set in 18-karat gold and polished Sapphire Crystal Display.
Apple Watch controls
In the design of the Apple Watch going including the control system that the Apple company wants to mark as differential. The classic Crown of clocks in a control mode complementary to the touch on the touch screen, which not only identifies the touch on it but the pressure.
Apple has called it Crown Digital and its function is twofold: can zoom and scroll through the interface without covering the screen with your finger and as a start button. There will also be a possibility of control with Siri, function that is activated by pressing the Digital Crown or a Siri hears. What we can tell the wizard of Apple is related to consultations on the agenda, dictate messages, take notes, or get directions. Indeed, to the speaker and microphone, Apple Wacth can do the times of hands-free.
For notices and response to ls interaction with clock, Apple has placed answer haptic on skin, a kind of vibration which, according to Apple, is different for each type of event. That’s the basis for a function that retrieves the “touch” of the early days of the mobile phone.
The screen is known to be Retina, but no data so far of its resolution. As for the battery, You can not move from the day of normal use, that Yes, having the on screen at all times. Despite this, it will be the big barrier to entry. No longer only one device commonly used to charge every night. So Apple has placed him in the bottom a Magsafe connector.
Areas and functions associated with clock
It is at least curious that one of the most striking uses by now of advanced watches is look at and manage time. Yes, how you hear it. And it is the smartwatch more emphasis on this feature is Apple clock.
As in other advanced watches on the market, the areas can be customized (by now does not seem that Apple is going to open the hand to make this part of your watch to a third party) both in appearance and in features, changing color, images or information that shows at a glance, including alarm, timer, moon phases, calendar, bag, time… As it could not be otherwise, when connected to the iPhone, so much time as time zones changes automatically, identifies them by changing the time necessary.
Some of the options that are quite interesting, as the graph real-time turns When we exercise and use the stopwatch.
A clock with aspirations of social link
If some Apple convinced them that cut and paste years after competition was a great achievement in the smartphone world, not we should wonder that from Cupertino want to give a very social tone to your watch by the hand of functions which, a priori, seems rather absurd to us: touch, drawings or even sending our pulse to another person also using a Apple Watch.
Apart from the story, that certainly is an option that excited them to use a certain sector of consumers (here the simplicity and touch Apple has much to say), it is logical that the communication focuses on voice and hands-free, and may initiate calls or answer them from your own phone. We’ll see if becomes a headset, expected if we consider sport, make this functionality less strange, but that on the other hand could be devastating for a quite limited for now battery.
For Apple, if you get this is that someone is is according especially you
Yes, it also includes notifications and applications
At this point in the article and the notifications they had not made an appearance. This leaves us a little clearer that it will not be home, the most publicized of the Apple Watch. Has not much deviated Apple Watch what are right now in the market the truth.
In the absence of which we know the catalog of applications from developers that can be used in the clock, serial Apple has given access to text messages (that can read, reply or open on the smartphone) and emails (we can manage them from the watch Elementary). The real ecosystem will come at the hands of third parties and Apple has already given some details of how will be applications in the Apple Watch, with its own downloads shop.
Here’s an example of so-called application what there is to eat? that use Apple clock to display recipes and step by step to make it, all without having to touch the smartphone timer.
Sport and quantification in the Apple Watch
A field in which the Apple Watch want to be important is the of the Sport. Series comes with accelerometers to measure distance and distance, in addition to heart rate measurement Thanks to a sensor placed at the rear using infrared LEDs and visible light to detect the pulse. That does not include Apple clock is GPS. To get that functionality the smartwatch must rely on the iPhone.
What does seem that it has worked pretty Apple is the sport application, which allows you to manage training, objectives and even achievements/logos as well as a record of our activities,.
The new Apple Watch will be resistant to water but not submersible, and battery because it has been confirmed by Apple that will hold 18 hours, which translates to a range of one day if we arrived. If we activate a low-consumption mode could stretch its use up to three days, but you have to think that we only time.
Apple Watch price
Three versions of the Apple Watch already have official price. The most affordable model, Apple Watch Sport, you can buy is from April 24 in the United States for $349, being that the model with size of 38 mm. If we want the 42 mm the price rises to $399.
The next to finish is the Apple Watch, which It will cost between 549 and $1,100, Depending on the type of belt we choose to accompany it. In the box of each watch will come two belts, expected that have chosen series and one for the sports mode Basic.
