Tim Cook had a big “one more thing” announcement up his sleeve, and it was a small sapphire-coated smartwatch dubbed the Apple Watch, not the fabled iWatch.
The Apple Watch features a sapphire glass Retina display filled with sensors that can track everything from your heart rate to daily activities and exercise. Everything you need just became attached to your wrist.
This iPhone-compatible watch has been unveiled alongside the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, fulfilling the Cupertino company’s “new product categories” promise for 2014.
It’s not a circular smartwatch like its fashionable rival, Motorola’s Moto 360, but it still features a premium rectangular-shaped design and works seamlessly with iOS 8 devices.
Apple’s first wearable gadget beams messages, Facebook updates, simplified apps and Siri to our wrists, eliminating the all-too-common need to take out our devices to constantly check notifications.
Apple Watch also takes cues from the Nike FuelBand SE and other fitness tracker with health sensors and apps, a must for any serious wearable gadget these days.
