Apple Watch Is Not Actually What It Meant To Be
Apple has made important alterations in the design of its advanced wearable Apple Watch. With dozens of other features, Apple planned to to incorporate a variety of cutting edge health functions, but technological and regulatory barriers have curtailed the tech giant’s way to fully realize its plans, reports AppleInsider.
Sources of The Wall Street Journal claim that Apple could not execute its initial plans in designing the smartwatch. And that when the device reached its unveiling ceremony last year, it was missing a lot of functions. So now, when it will officially be launched in April, it won’t be actually the same thing which was once proposed.
According to the details, Apple execs desired a tool which could ultimately be proven as a pioneering health-monitoring tool. It was said that the watch will be capable of measuring blood pressure, stress level, heart rate etc. But this is not going to be the actual case now.
The publication reports that Apple’s top execs were compelled by this failure to stay away from the marketing campaign of the device.
Nevertheless, the smartwatch still holds many advanced capabilities empowered by a variety of sensors, which include accelerometers, touch inputs and a bespoke optical heart rate sensor. The optical heart rate sensor connects to the iOS Health app for fitness and wellness tracking.
The alteration in the initial structure does not make Apple’s smartwatch less effective anyhow. It still has functions, if not better than, as equal as other competing devices have.
But people do look the deficiencies of health functions in Apple Watch as a setback for the tech giant. Because when the company planned, four years ago, to develop the smartwatch, its chief motive force behind was to produce a device with special focus on health and fitness. Which it could not accomplish in whole essence.
But, as per the sources claim, Apple management was skeptic of the reliability of the advanced technology components so it decided not to use them. So perhaps Apple preferred to maintain its old standards and repute rather setting new ones. Really?
