The Many Faces of Apple Watch

Apple’s smartwatch was released April, 2015 and an upgrade to watchOS 2 was announced for the 16 September, 2015, but it was postponed.

Apple Watch is a beautiful wearable, coming in a wide range of models, which belong in three categories: Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch Edition, making the ” There’s an Apple Watch for everyone” slogan a quite accurate one. Apple Watch Sport category contains simpler models, which come with silver, space gray, gold, or rose gold anodized aluminum cases, covered in Ion-X glass, a Retina Display with Force Touch, composite back, sport band with stainless steel pin, Digital Crown, heart rate sensor, accelerometer, and gyroscope. Sport Apple Watches also feature ambient light sensor, speaker and microphone, Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11b/g/n 2.4GHz Wi- Fi. Apple Watch Sport timepieces can be purchased in two different sizes: 38 mm(1.32- inch) and 42 mm(1.5- inch). Users can choose between multiple types of sport bands which differ in color and material.

The Apple Watch category features stainless steel or space black stainless steel cases, sapphire crystal- covered display, a retina display with Force Touch, ceramic back, Digital Crown, heart rate sensor, accelerometer, and gyroscope. Just as the Sport category, the timepieces in Apple Watch category also feature ambient light sensor, speaker and microphone, Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11b/g/n 2.4GHz Wi- Fi. The smartwatches belonging to this category come with sport bands, classic buckles, modern buckles, different colored leather loops, Milanese loops or link bracelets.

As far as the Apple Watch Edition Category goes, the timepieces which form this category are more sophisticated, being more suitable for people who like to visit high- end boutiques. These watches are primarily beautiful, utility coming in in second place. Apple Watch Edition timepieces have 18- karat yellow or rose gold cases, sapphire crystal coverings, retina display with Force Touch, ceramic back, Digital Crown, heart rate sensor, accelerometer, and gyroscope. As every other Apple Watch, the ones in this category also have ambient light sensor, speaker and microphone, and they are water resistant. The battery of Apple Watches lasts up to 18 hours, depending on the way you use it. Every Apple Watch requires an iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, or 6s Plus and iOS 8.2 or later.

Apple Watches are not only beautiful timepieces, they are also extremely useful, you can do just about anything, having hundreds of apps at your fingertips. To be more accurate, at your wrist.
