The Apple keynote in Cupertino is launched, and the first theme is Apple Watch, according to Tim Cook meanwhile the most popular watch worldwide. The Apple Watch is to receive even more fitness features, as soon as watchOS 4 is released. These features were already announced in the summer.
The pulse can be displayed with watchOS 4 directly on the dial, combined with further information about the pumping heart. If this is a little too fast and you are not at the workout, the clock automatically announces itself. The heart rhythm is now also observed and analyzed. The data collected on the Smartwatch are first aggregated in a large-scale study.
watchOS 4 will be released on September 19th.
The new features of the Smartwatch: Series 3 will be especially fun. The watch has already been suspected of being mobile, as can be reached via the regular number of its iPhones. IMessage is also supported. Apple Music can also be streamed through the new Apple Watch. This feature will be available from October – with all the features the service provides anyway. The antennas for the mobile phone plug in the display, the SIM card is already integrated as e-SIM into the clock. Apple could keep the dimensions of the watch: Series 3 is just as big as the still current version Series 2. In a first demonstration in Cupertino surprised the audio quality, the phone call reaches a female employee who is on a surfboard in the middle of a lake. In terms of microphones, Apple seems to have invested a lot. It is still unclear at the moment how these calls are billed, and whether one needs a multi-sim for it. The partner in Germany is Telekom.
