Apple Watch (marketed as Apple ) is a smartwatch created by Apple Inc. and announced by Tim Cook on September 9, 2014. The watch incorporates fitness tracking and health-oriented capabilities as well as integration with iOS and other Apple products and services. Apple announced the Apple Watch as three ‘collections’, distinguished by different combinations of cases and interchangeable bands. The watch relies on a connected iPhone to perform many of its functions, and will be compatible with the iPhone 5 and later iPhone models running iOS 8.2. The device is scheduled to begin shipping in April 2015.
The Apple Watch will work with Apple Pay, a mobile payment service introduced at the same event as the watch. It is capable of receiving phone calls as well as iMessage and SMS Texts via a paired iPhone and can track fitness metrics, run third-party apps and use an Apple feature called “Handoff”. It can control Apple TV, as well as act as a walkie-talkie and a viewfinder for an iPhone camera.
The Apple Watch uses Apple’s new Apple S1 processor, advertised as “an entire computer architecture on a single chip”. It also uses a linear actuator called the “Taptic Engine” to provide haptic feedback when an alert or a notification is received. The watch is equipped with a built-in heart rate sensor, which uses both infrared and visible-light LEDs and photodiodes.
The watch is compatible with the iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus, running iOS 8.2 or later, connecting via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth 4.0
