If you haven’t heard of the Apple Watch then surely you’ve been living under a rock. Apple claims it is ‘the most personal device’ they’ve ever released. This is because it affords a variety of unique interactions and technologies exclusive to the watch.
The Apple Watch is designed to be a companion to the iPhone and will display notifications, calls, and alerts while sitting on your wrist. This is convenient because you don’t have to look at your phone every time you receive a message, email, or call.
Unique features include:
- ‘Force Touch’ technology which gives the device more depth through interactivity. It knows when you are pressing the screen with more pressure. The feature can also be used to send drawings, “taps”, and vibration patterns to other watch owners.
- Control the watch via touch, gestures, or the Digital Crown!
- Animated emoji exclusive to the Apple Watch that can be customized. Make them wink, feign surprise, or stick their tongue out!
- Receive calls and texts remotely from the iPhone 5 and up.
- Analyzes received messages and makes personalized suggestions for replies, allows you to reply much quicker.
- Send voice messages to other watch owners with the integrated mic (walkie-talkie).
