Apple Watch Review
When a simple smartphone is not enough anymore and you want it to par with something else, a wearable accessory might be the thing you need, something in the spirit of the Apple Watch. This is a small device that is more than a watch, even if you can wear it on your wrist – and yes, you can wear it on each wrist, because you can flip the design and benefit from a more tailored experience should you decide to wear it in another way. The design is simple and elegant, the square screen following the “rounded corners” design of the iPhones.
The Apple Watch comes in 2 screen sizes, one of 42mm and one of 38mm. The latter feels better for women and even for small-wristed men; you wouldn’t want a watch that looks much bigger than it should on the hand. There are a variety of straps available for the watch, ranging from stainless steel to leather, and here is a matter of personal preference.
The Apple Watch is designed to be used both connected and disconnected from an iPhone. When you have it disconnected, you can rely on it to track your daily physical activity or simply play music, but you should not expect a high storage capacity. The watch is also compatible with the Apple Pay feature so payments can become simpler. All these features need battery, though, and this is something a bit disappointing at the moment, because it does not seem that Apple goes past the one-day mark when it comes to the battery life. However, when you want to charge the watch, you just have to snap the charger on its back, as the process relies on inductive charging powered by magnets to charge the battery.
Probably the nicest thing that such a smartwatch is able to do is that it can eliminate the need of users to constantly take their phones out of the pocket. You can check out any social media update from the screen of the watch, which takes a mere second and no effort at all. Regarding the elements that power the watch, you should know that the heart of it is the S1 processor designed by Apple. You can enjoy the features that stem from the accelerometer and gyroscope, but you can also rely on GPS directions and Wi-Fi connection, as long as the paired iPhone has them activated.
If you decide to get such a watch, you should know that compatibility is rather limited when it comes to the iPhone devices: only the iPhone 5 and later installments will be able to work with the Apple Watch. However, if you get it, you will enjoy the Retina display and the protection layer which is made out of sapphire. However, you won’t have to pinch to zoom on the screen, as you can rotate the digital crown on the side of the watch in order to enjoy the zoom in and out feature. The same crown also works in order to scroll through various lists.
