Features:

Though designed as a companion to the iPhone, the Apple Watch has a limited number of offline capabilities including the ability to make Apple Pay payments, play music over Bluetooth, track activity, and display some built-in Apple apps.

Apple Watch has a water resistance rating of IPX7, so it is splash and water resistant, but it is not waterproof. It can be worn during exercise, in the rain, and while washing your hands, but it should not be submerged. Many of the Apple Watch bands, like the Modern Buckle and the Leather Loop, should also be kept out of the water. Splash tests conducted on the Apple Watch suggest it might survive for a short amount of time underwater, but users should follow Apple’s guidelines and avoid submersion.

The watch has a built-in speaker and a microphone, so it is able to place and receive phone calls. It was created to function as a health and fitness device, offering movement tracking capabilities combined with intuitive apps that encourage users to be more active.

Apple custom designed a special S1 processor chip for the Apple Watch, which integrates several different subsystems into a single module. The S1 chip is said to be similar in power to the A5 processor in the iPad 2 and the iPhone 4s. It houses a gyroscope and an accelerometer to measure activity, and a sensor that detects heart rate. The heart rate sensor consists of four sapphire lenses built into the zirconia backing of the watch that detect pulse rate (via infrared, visible-light LEDs, and photodiodes), and the device also integrates the GPS and Wi-Fi capabilities of the iPhone into several of its tracking abilities, using the phone’s GPS system to determine distance travelled.

The Apple Watch has a covered diagnostic port beneath the band that’s used for diagnostic purposes, but there has been some speculation that it could, in the future, enable accessories like smart bands.

BATTERY LIFE
Apple has finally released new information on how long we can expect our Apple Watch devices to last before needing to be charged.

According to a dedicated battery section on the Apple Watch site, the Apple Watch lasts for approximately 18 hours with mixed usage, which the company refers to as “all-day battery life.” Mixed usage is defined as 90 time checks, 90 notifications, 45 minutes of app use, and a 30-minute workout with music playback, all over the course of 18 hours. A teardown of the Apple Watch revealed a rather small 205mAh battery, just a fraction of the capacity of the battery found in the iPhone 6.

The Apple Watch lasts for up to three hours when it is being used to make phone calls, up to 6.5 hours during an active workout session, and up to 6.5 hours when playing audio. When used as a watch, the device lasts for up to 48 hours, and in Power Reserve mode, the battery lasts for up to 72 hours.

Power Reserve Mode, which can be enabled at any time, shuts down most of the functions of the watch that drain power, allowing it to continue to offer its most basic function — time telling — even when the Apple Watch battery is low.

As Apple notes, battery life varies by use, configuration, and other factors, so real world results may vary. According to Apple, the 42mm Apple Watch “typically” experiences longer battery life than the smaller 38mm version.

Apple Watch reviewers were largely satisfied with the Apple Watch’s battery life, and it lived up to Apple’s all day battery life claim, lasting from the morning until the evening.

It takes 1.5 hours for the Apple Watch to be charged from 0 percent to 80 percent using the included MagSafe inductive charger, and it takes 2.5 hours for the device to get to a full 100 percent charge. The Apple Watch battery is replaceable, but users need to send the device in to Apple to get a replacement installed.

DISPLAY
The Apple Watch comes in two separate sizes, 38mm and 42mm, both of which are equipped with a Retina display. According to Apple, the “incredibly high pixel density” of the Apple Watch display makes numbers and text easy to read at a glance, even while moving.”

Apple has not provided specific details on the resolution of the Apple Watch in its marketing materials, but the resolution is listed in the WatchKit SDK. The smaller 38mm Apple Watch has a resolution of 272 x 340, while the larger 42mm Apple Watch has a resolution of 312 x 390.

Apple describes the display as “extremely energy efficient” and says that it has “remarkable sharpness and contrast.” On the Apple Watch and the Apple Watch Edition, the display is laminated to a machined and polished sapphire crystal. On the Apple Watch Sport, the display is protected by Ion-X glass, which is lighter than sapphire but less scratch resistant.

In a scratch test, the sapphire display of the Apple Watch proved to be highly resistant to damage, even when scratching was attempted with a drill.

A scratch test conducted on the Ion-X glass display of the Apple Watch Sport suggested it is less resilient than the sapphire display of the more expensive Apple Watches, but it should still hold up well to daily wear and tear.

TIME
According to Apple, the Apple Watch was designed to be an “incredibly accurate timepiece” that has a margin of error within 50 milliseconds. It checks against the definitive global time standard on a regular basis, adjusting the time accordingly during daylight savings time or when a user travels from one time zone to another.

Apple’s focus on time has also led it to develop a variety of watch faces, offering a range of designs from a standard analog clock to Mickey Mouse to a galaxy theme that includes moon phases and a look at the solar system. Each custom watch face includes several additional customization options, letting users change colours and the information that’s displayed.

A few watch face examples
Customizable features included with each Watch Face are called “Complications,” and are specialized functions that offer information like moon phases, sunrise and sunset times, alarms, and weather.

Apple Watch’s accelerometer senses when a user raises his or her wrist, at which point the watch face is displayed. When not activated, the screen remains blank to conserve battery life.

FORCE TOUCH
Pressure-sensing technology called “Force Touch” has been built into the Apple Watch, allowing it to determine the difference between a tap and a press. This functionality allows for a new range of contextually specific controls, almost similar to the different abilities enabled by left clicking and right clicking on a mouse button.

HAPTIC ENGINE
Along with pressure-sensing technology, the Apple Watch has a unique haptic feedback vibration engine that’s designed to deliver alerts in a subtle, gentle way, letting users feel and hear the design of the user interface. Tactile sensations are different for each kind of notification and combined with audio cues for a feedback system that’s unlike anything available on the Mac or iPhone.

CHARGING
The Apple Watch uses inductive charging, taking advantage of a Magsafe-style magnetic charger that snaps easily onto the back of the device. The Apple Watch charges from 0 to 80 percent in about an hour and a half, with an additional hour required to reach full charge.

WATCH OS
Watch OS is the operating system that’s installed on the Apple Watch. Though WatchOS has taken design cues from iOS 7 and iOS 8, it’s been designed from the ground up for the Apple Watch with features that take advantage of all of the hardware in the device.

By default, the Apple Watch display remains black and blank when a user’s arm is down to save battery. When a user raises up his or her wrist, the watch face with the time and other user-selected information is displayed.

The WatchOS home screen can be accessed by pressing on the Digital Crown. The home screen displays all available apps in a cluster format (or “app neighbourhood”) that can be navigated with swipes or with the Digital Crown control. Apps are accessed with a touch.

Apps that run on the Apple Watch are extensions of existing iPhone apps, powered by the iPhone and with a user interface that extends to the watch. Developers have limited access to Apple Watch features and are unable to access the gyroscope, accelerometer, NFC, built-in speaker and microphone, and the Taptic Engine of the device. Developers cannot create full apps that run on the watch itself at this point in time, but that functionality may be available in the future.

Though prevented from creating full apps, developers can still create multiple types of content for the Apple Watch, including apps powered by the iPhone, Glances, and Actionable Notifications. Glances, which are accessible via a swipe on the watch face, are designed to give users quick read-only information at a glance, like weather, news, and sports scores.

Actionable Notifications let users take an action or respond to a notification, such as turning off lights of a connected device or accessing flight information from an email. Notifications are only received when the watch is on the wrist and in contact with skin.

There are two types of notifications on the Apple Watch: a “Short Look” where a notification is only briefly visible and a “Long Look” activated when a user raises their wrist. “Long Look” notifications are equivalent to Actionable Notifications, letting users respond to an incoming notification. For example, a user might receive a Short Look notification from Instagram when a new photo is posted, which morphs into a Long Look notification where an action like comments or likes can be taken.

Apps on the Apple Watch are similar to apps available for the iPhone, but are far more limited. A comprehensive list of Apple-made apps and third-party apps for the Apple Watch is available below, as is information on some of the Apple Watch’s more advanced features.

DIGITAL TOUCH
Social interaction is a cornerstone of Watch OS, and the various sensors and technological capabilities built into the Apple Watch allow for new ways of communication between users, mainly through a set of features Apple’s named “Digital Touch.”

With Digital Touch, users can send taps to each other or take advantage of the touch screen to draw and send simple sketches. Apple Watch has specially designed animated emoji, plus a list of pre-determined response messages (which improve over time based on user input) that can be used as text message replies. It’s also possible to use the built-in heart rate monitor to send an actual heartbeat to another user, which is relayed through vibrations and a heart on the watch display, and there’s a “Walkie-Talkie” feature for sending quick sound bites to friends.

FITNESS There are two separate fitness apps installed on the Watch, each designed to track different fitness elements. The Activity app gives users an overview of their daily fitness levels, with three “rings” representing calories burned, exercise completed, and how often a break is taken from sitting. Fitness has a companion iPhone app to let users track trends over time.

A second Workout app displays real-time stats like time spent exercising, distance travelled, calories burned, and pace when working out. It encourages users to set, meet, and beat fitness goals, and over time, it is able to suggest new, attainable fitness goals and act as a digital personal trainer.

Health and fitness was one of Apple’s main focal points when developing the Apple Watch. The company has a secret testing facility where it has been gathering health and fitness data from Apple employees for years to develop the Apple Watch.

Employees are outfitted with a wide array of sensors and wear masks that measure statistics like changes in breathing. Volunteers were subjected to widely varying workout regimens including rowing, yoga, and running, to collect data for the Apple Watch. Apple collected more than 18,000 hours of data for the Apple Watch, both indoors in special rooms that featured different climates, and in various locations around the world.

Though heavily reliant on the iPhone, certain Apple Watch features continue to work when you’re away from your device. For example, the device is able to learn a user’s stride after a few exercises completed while paired with an iPhone, and then it’s able to accurately track fitness-related statistics without needing to be tethered to an iPhone.

OTHER APPS
For the most part, apps that have been shown off so far have been more limited versions of some of the apps available on iOS and OS X. For example, the included Messages app lets users dictate messages or select quick responses from pre-set options.

The Phone app, meanwhile, lets users conduct quick conversations that can be transferred to the iPhone, a car’s speakerphone, or a Bluetooth headset, if desired. Incoming phone alerts can be silenced by covering the Apple Watch with a hand.

Mail, another app present on Watch OS, displays incoming email messages. Users can read a message, flag it, mark it read/unread, or move it to trash, but need to transfer to an iPhone to type a response. Other built-in apps:

Calendar: Displays what’s coming up next in a user’s day, sends meeting reminders and allows users to accept calendar invitations.
Maps: Lets users view current location and get turn-by-turn directions. Maps takes advantage of Taptic Feedback, delivering different vibrations for a left or right turn.
Passbook: Like on the iPhone, Passbook stores boarding passes, tickets, loyalty cards, and credit cards. It’s an integral part of Apple Pay.
Music: Users can control the music on their iPhones via Apple Watch and Apple Watch can also play music directly.
Apple TV, iTunes: Apple Watch can serve as a remote control for both iTunes and the Apple TV, letting users navigate the interface with the watch.
Camera/Photos: Apple Watch serves as a remote shutter for the iPhone’s camera. It can display a live preview of what the iPhone sees, and snap the picture. Apple Watch also displays photos that are favorited on the iPhone in its Photos app.
Clock: Similar to the iPhone’s clock app, Apple Watch has stopwatch, timer, and alarm functionality built in, along with a world clock.
Weather: Apple Watch lets users to see the weather in their immediate location or anywhere in the world. The app displays a detailed daily report and a weekly forecast.
Settings: A Settings app serves as a hub to enable and disable various Apple Watch features, including Bluetooth, Do Not Disturb, and Mute. This app also lets users ping their iPhones to determine its location should it become lost.

Apple Watch supports third-party apps, allowing developers to create three distinct types of software for the device: “Actionable Notifications” that are essentially interactive third-party app notifications sent from the iPhone, Glances, which display quick bits of info, and full on apps that run either on the iPhone or on the Apple Watch itself.

CONTINUITY
Watch OS, like OS X Yosemite and iOS 8, supports Apple’s new Continuity features that allow the operating systems to integrate with each other in innovative ways. With Handoff, for example, users are able to shift tasks from one device to another with ease, so a phone call, message, or email can be transferred from the Apple Watch to a Mac or iOS device.

iPHONE COMPANION APP
iOS 8.2 included a pre-installed iPhone app called just “Apple Watch,” which serves as a companion to the upcoming device. It serves as a place for Apple Watch owners to control settings on the device and download apps.

An iPhone pairs with an Apple Watch using the companion app, though the iPhone’s camera. A pairing menu available now asks users to hold their Apple Watch devices up to the camera to initiate a connection.

image

The Apple Watch companion app has menus for configuring the app layout on the Apple Watch (rearranging the home screen cluster), toggling on notifications and glances, choosing brightness and text size, and controlling sounds and haptic feedback (the gentle vibrations you get with notifications). One neat haptic feature is the ability to cover the watch display with a hand to mute it.

image

You can use the iPhone app to toggle on Airplane Mode, turn on Do Not Disturb, and set a passcode. There are controls for individual app settings, and it’s possible to choose the orientation of the Apple Watch display to left wrist or right wrist. You can also toggle on “Wrist Detection,” which activates the watch display whenever the wrist is raised and shows the time.

There’s a friends list available to add friends to communicate with (by sending heartbeats and drawings), and there are options to control Activity alerts, manage music, and manage photos.
