Apple Unviels New Smartwatch - Apple Watch


Yesterday saw Apple unveil the next generation iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets, along with the long-awaited and much-rumored Apple Watch.

The Apple watch duplicates some of the features of the iPhone but also adds new features and functions specially in the field of health and fitness. The Apple Watch will monitor health and fitness, tracking the wearer’s movement, heartrate and activity with built-in sensors, feeding the information into Apple’s Health app for the iPhone and iPad and allowing review and analysis of the data. Several of Apple’s apps will be available on the Watch, including voice-control tool Siri, Messages, Maps as well as information pulled from calendars, email and other iPhone apps.

However not all these functions will work without pairing it with the newer iPhones. The Apple Watch pairs only with the newer iPhones — including the iPhone 5, 5S, 5C and iPhone 6 — and pass information back and forth. The Apple watch will not work with Android, Windows or other mobile platforms. If you don’t have a iPhone, then basic watch functions like time and health and fitness tracking will work, but users will have limited functionality without their iPhones as far as messaging, music and other features.

Apple Watch does have a variety of cool designs and a innovative new tool to navigate around the watch face called a crown, a wheel that allows users to zoom in and out and go to different screens without having to touch the watch face. I was most impressed with this simple and innovative idea. The screen does respond to touch and pressure as well, and it can tell the difference between a swipe and a tap.

The smartwatch will also interact with Apple Pay, a mobile wallet and payment ecosystem that the company also unveiled today. The iPhone 6 includes an NFC chip, which enables it to use contactless payment terminals to pay for items at stores. The fingerprint sensor authenticates the identity of the payer, and credit card information is stored in Passbook.

Apple has lined up the three major credit card companies, American Express, MasterCard and Visa, along with 220,000 merchant locations that will accept Apple Pay. Some of the big names partnered so far are Macy's, Bloomingdales, Staples, Subway, McDonald's, Target and Disney, to name a few.

Overall I think the Apple watch is a impressive piece of technology but I'm not sure that there are enough reasons for everyone to want to buy or need one especially as many of the functions are already there in peoples smartphones. For instance how many smart devices do people need to get whatsapp messages or make calls? The smaller screen size also limits the kind of apps that you can make for this device, so I suspect that Rovio wont be rushing to make an angry birds version for the Apple watch.

The smartwatch will be available in three versions: the stainless steel Watch, aluminium Watch Sport and 18c gold Apple Watch Edition. Six different straps will also be available, each with a quick-remove clasp. The device will not be available until early 2015 in the U.S. The starting price will be $349 (Rs 21,000) in the US.
