Apart from new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus release Apple did a new step in wearable technology (right after Pebble kickstarted it as a true indie pioneer). Meet Apple Watch hence not iWatch, that is a true piece of engineering genius. Coming in two sizes and expecting in earlier 2015 Apple Watch "Apple has added a navigational tool called a “digital crown” which is the dial (normally found on traditional watches to adjust time) to zoom or scroll. The digital crown also acts as a home button when pressed to return or exit out of apps. The screen is still touch-enabled to swipe through the screens of an app or draw. It can also recognize between taps and clicks by detecting force.
Apple Watch comes with Siri, shareable heartbeat and animated and customizable emojis.
The watch also works as a “comprehensive health and fitness device” with its equipped heart monitor, gyroscope and accelerometer. It comes with a three-ring activity monitoring system to remind and encourage the wearer to be more active to reach daily goals.
Apple will open the WatchKit SDK for third-party developers to create functionalities on the Apple Watch. Upcoming third-party features include tapping to check in to an American Airlines flight, tapping or waving the clock to unlock your room at SPG hotels and Nest thermostat control from the watch." text via TNW
