Earlier today during Apples big iPhone announcement they also introduced Apple Pay, Apple Watch, treated everyone to a live streamed U2 show, as well as announcing their latest album Songs Of Innocence would be available for free download on iTunes. Phones and mobile wallets aside, we at Sidewalk Hustle are most excited for the release of the Apple Watch. Not only is it beautifully designed without the clunky look and feel of other wearable technologies to date, it basically has just as much functionality as an iPhone (and communicates directly with it).
Just as all Apple products before it, the Apple Watch features revolutionary technology and a user interface like no other. The main control for the Apple Watch is on the Digital Crown, which allows you to navigate through your apps and dashboard on the device without obstructing the view of the digital display. The watch will also allow you to communicate in new and exciting ways including taking calls, messaging, as well as well as sending your own heart beat to someone else. As if it couldn’t get more exciting than Apple Watch will also come equip with health and fitness capabilities through apps that go so far as to count each step you take and each stair you climb and log them into various apps.
Other features of Apple Watch include an iOS-based user interface (including Siri), a Retina display with Force Touch, a Tapic Engine for touch and feel alerts with built-in speaker, a S1 SiP computer chip, and a Wi-Fi 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 4.0 that pair with your iPhone.
Apple Watch is available in three collections including Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport, and Apple Watch Edition. They’ll be available starting early 2015 and come in two different sizes, a range watch straps which include a Sport Band, a Milanese Loop, Leather Loop, Modern Buckle, and a Classic Buckle, and 11 watch faces.
The Apple Watch will start at $349 US and is compatible with all iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus running the latest version of iOS 8.
