‘ We have one more thing’. That is the phrase that Tim Cook began to unveil a product that we have been about year and a half hearing or reading. . Those rumors had increased in recent months in which the smartwatch seemed to be the trend of the year. As well: we have with us the smart watch of Apple: the Apple Watch.
The introductory video began to clarify the doubts: It’s a clock with square format, but with circular elements in its user interface. The design of the device has clearly been one of the highlights of a clock which, according to Cook, “is the next chapter in the history of Apple”.
It is evident that Apple Watch is a product in which the design has played a key role. Apple explained for example how are designed more than 60 types of different belts, each of which are connected with various types of adjustment mechanisms to watch.
Apple Watch comes in two sizes (38 and 42 mm side), which seem clearly geared to cover both male and female audiences that will surely appreciate the larger version of. Apple will launch three editions of Apple Watch: the normal editing “Sports”, with aluminum casing, and call Apple Watch Edition, which will be manufactured with a case in 18 carat gold.
One of the distinctive features of this device is the use of Sapphire on the screen, something that will protect it significantly against scratches and shocks and which still allows a touch support which is more than we have in the iPhone, as we shall see below.
The touch interface is not enough: the Crown as a differentiator
Cook has been the protagonist of the presentation of the Apple Watch, a device which sought to differentiate methods of interaction of the past: in the case of the computer mouse, the touch interface for phone. It was not valid for this new development.
In the Apple Watch control is based to a large extent in the Crown of the lateral part, precisely it is more remarkable in size to allow for such interaction. Crown rotation gestures allow to go access different applications and functions, although that Yes, the screen is touch and allows response to certain gestures on the screen, and that in fact not only recognizes that there is contact, but the force that contact through the ‘Force Touch’ feature.
In fact, as he explained Cook, small displays in the iWatch were not possible to transfer the experience of the iPhone: “what we have not done is to take the iPhone and squeezing the user interface to then attach to your wrist”. That Crown is therefore to the zoom on a map -for example – we could not do with the gesture of clip, or to scroll over some list.
Sensors, charging by induction, and the mysterious specifications
At the rear we find several sensors that take data from our doll, like our pulse, in addition to accelerometer and gyroscope, allowing among other things monitor our physical activity… or at least part of it. That rear part is at the same time a MagSafe connector with charging by induction, recharging the battery, but that it is not actually a wireless charging system as such.
In fact, in the video introductory recorded by Jony Ive explaining us how inside these devices we can find two very special chips, called Taptic Engine and the processor Apple S1, specially designed to meet the needs of this device.
In Apple they did not want to give many specific details about the specifications their Apple Watch, and in fact have no known information on one of the key aspects of the device: its battery. That’s one of the keys to a development that will compete in the same category as solutions based on Android Wear or Tizen – with obligatory mention of Pebble – and will have to wait to know those details and try the clock to check how it behaves Apple in this section.
It seems also clear that Apple Watch will depend on the iPhone that we associate it significantly, and for example It will make use of your WiFi or 3 G connection / 4 G to have access to data, as well as the GPS receiver to be able to access the functions of geo-positioning. The clock does not have SIM slot, but yes has Bluetooth 4.0 and support WiFi 802. 11b/go quoted WiFi, so at the moment do not have additional data concerning.
One of the key sections of the Apple Watch is software that manages it. The apparent Edition for iOS is controlled with touch gestures and the aforementioned side Crown, and on the main interface offers us a curious “universe of applications” whereby we can move the finger. The circular icons of applications increase or decrease slightly in size to be in the center of screen or abandon that point, from which you can launch them easily.
This initial desk in which we usually show time is configurable, and curiously this Apple Watch adopt something which so far had not adopted: widgets. Although he did not want to call it that, each of the elements that we can place on the screen behaves independently, and the idea is to combine several of them for having that initial screen on the phone that we be more useful.
The software also allows you to access one specific version of Siri by pressing of the lateral Crown, from which our question search results will show us. The built-in microphone allows you to activate voice recognition and an animation shows you recognize the question while we are asking.
The notifications management It is one of the important sections of this device, e.g. we can lift the wrist when we want to watch them if any comes, and then slide your finger to accept such an invitation to a calendar event.
That response can be combined with the auto response that Apple offers to receive emails: offered us some predefined answers (in English at the moment, we fear), which you can select with the Crown, or we can choose quick emoticons. And we can certainly enact a quick message to reply to these notifications messages that come to walkie-talkie mode. There is no keyboard present in this smart watch, something that certainly makes sense in a device of this size.
Apple showed running applications as of the photos or maps. In this last we turn map with your finger on the screen, and zoom through the Crown, but also instructions to reach destination, with vibration different on our wrist as we have to turn to the left or right.
Another new feature on the clock was the presentation of a application of communication based on the touch response: Select a contact and send you a message through the clock seems possible through mostly pictograms of different colors, although it seemed not clear whether this capacity can replace the messaging services that succeed on smartphones.
Developers will have access to the benefits of this device and its software through WatchKit, a new set of tools that try to persuade this community to take advantage of the potential of Apple Watch. Were examples such as Twitter, Facebook or Pinterest, applications and also small tools like the one that shows the results of the Professional Baseball League.
Another of the specific capabilities of this device is the of to make mobile payments directly through the clock, although it is not clear how taking into account that on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus the sensor Touch ID is needed. It is likely that the own Apple Watch has NFC and be able to manage the transaction if we have the very next iPhone.
Price and availability
Apple Watch needs to work in conjunction with an iPhone, and in fact does not seem to make sense without these devices. It will be compatible with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus iPhone, but also with the iPhone 5, 5S and 5 c. The starting of the Apple Watch price is $ 349 for the basic version, and these devices will be available “in early 2015”.
