At Apple Watch the second generation will be more biometric sensors




Immediately after the presentation of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus at the presentation on Tuesday, Apple revealed watch Watch. This is the first new category of “apple” devices after the release of iPad in 2010. Curiously, the company has refrained from using the prefix letter «i» – the clock is not called iWatch, as might be expected. Also, the prefix «i» in the title has not received payment feature Apple Pay.


According to CEO Tim Cook, the new product is “the most personal of devices that has ever created Apple». Although the name suggests the device implies that the Watch is a clock, it is evident that it is a multifunctional gadget. In addition to watches, it is also a “satellite” of the smartphone, fitness tracker, a tool for communication and contactless payments.

Processing incoming information from the sensors, clocks measure the distance and duration of sessions in the gym, keep records calories burned, heart rate monitor and so on. Accumulated statistics clock forwarded to the application “Health”, where she appears in a convenient way.


The first version of Apple Watch has come out with a limited set of sensors: the device was less than the biometric sensors than originally anticipated . Broader fitness opportunities will be in the second generation hours. Watch 2, according to Reuters, will have a magnetometer sensor oksiometrii sensor, conductivity and temperature of the skin and other sensors that capture activity in fitness classes.


Not Watch and GPS-module. GPS signals and Wi-Fi are taken from the iPhone, which is coupled device. NFC-chip converts Watch in remote purse. However, to make the payment, apparently, you will need to connect to the iPhone – because there is no clock own application Passbook.

In any case, we still have time to learn about all the features of the new items since the start of sales is scheduled only at the beginning of 2015. Almost all prices are kept secret, even though there is a reference – in the simplest configuration Watch will cost $ 349.
