Order Around Siri And Send Heartbeats Through Apple Watch
You may hate all you want, but deep inside you know Apple has class, and will always look grand, no matter what it offers. The new Apple Watch is just another example of that.
Though similar in the basic shape (round cornered rectangle) to LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live, the Apple Watch still manages to look and feel more deluxe. It also has something to do with the hefty price, though.
According to Gizmodo, the watch is pretty solid and light. It is not even rubbery which makes your wrists all sweaty after an hour of wearing it. Moreover, just like the iPhone 6, it has a sapphire display, which means it is stronger and more reliable. One more feature why we love it is the side winder of the watch — the rotatory piece on the side, just like on the conventional watch. However, it allows navigation, scrolling and zooming on the display.
The Watch is to come in three versions:
- Apple Watch Sport – in polished or black stainless steel
- The standard Apple Watch – in grey or silver anodized aluminium
- The luxury Watch Edition – in rose or yellow 18 carat gold (and twice as hard as standard gold).
However, the straps of the watch are changeable, where there is a variety of materials offered like rubber, metal or leather. The Watch’s exclusiveness was unveiled at the Flint Center by Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple.
“Apple introduced the world to several category-defining products, the Mac, iPod, iPhone and iPad,” he said, “And once again Apple is poised to captivate the world with a revolutionary product that can enrich people’s lives. It’s the most personal product we’ve ever made.”
Though we are accustomed to holding a phone 24/7 and manage to carry about our tasks regularly while accommodating the inconvenience the phone causes us while picking up things in general, we will still welcome having the major tasks of a phone being carried out by a device that we don’t have to hold. Hence, the Apple Watch allows us to make calls, send messages and use Siri, on the go.
If you tap on the avatar of a contact, the Watch shows you options on ways you can contact to the person. Moreover, using Siri, you can send messages in the form of a text or a voice message.
Though a small screen is relatively difficult when using the Map, the Taptic Engine of the Watch will run the app through vibrations, and guide us to the destination without having to even glance at the screen.
Moving on the health-related apps the Watch offers, apart from the usual tracking of heartbeat and number of steps taken and so on, you can even send your heartbeat to a friend now. That’s right. Pressing two fingers on the screen will capture and send your heartbeat to the specified contact.
“It’s amazing what you can do from your wrist,” quipped Cook. “We are so excited about Apple Watch, and I hope you are as well.”
