Apple plans to dominate the market of wearables with their highly anticipated Apple Watch (Launching March 9th). We really like new gear and gadgets and we love to share them with you. In light of this, we want to give one of you the Apple Watch. For free. It’s that simple. You could be one of the very first to own this heavily sought after wearable if you are lucky enough to win The Apple Watch Giveaway. The Apple Watch is a music player like an iPod; a fitness tracker with heart-rate measurements; a communications device that will send and receive messages, calls and audio recordings; and a handheld portal to other apps, too. It also makes payments via Apple Pay. It can also control your Apple TV and act as a remote for connected smart-home devices. The Apple Watch seems intent on being a synthesis of many other smartwatches, trying to knit together all of these features into a coherent whole. In some ways, the Apple Watch’s notifications, voice-activated controls, and swipe-to-glance features feel like elements of Google’s Android Wear watches. And the focus on apps and built-in features like voice calling seem like what the Samsung’s Tizen OS-based Gear watches have tried to aim for in the past.
Which phone do you need?
To pair with an Apple Watch, you’ll need an iPhone 5, 5C, 5S, 6 or 6 Plus. Sadly, earlier iPhones are excluded. So are other phone platforms like Android. This is an iPhone-owner’s product, much like Samsung’s Gear watches run only on certain Samsung phones, or Android Wear watches require Android phones.
How does it work?
Like most smartwatches, the Apple Watch is designed to be an adjunct to your iPhone. It’s meant to stay paired and connected while you wear it for most features, but it also does some things while disconnected, too.The Apple Watch has a small, bright color touch display plus a scroll-wheel digital crown and button on the side for extra features. You can touch and swipe to interact, or speak to its microphone.The watch runs on a brand-new S1 processor, is equipped with a gyro and accelerometer, and can piggyback on the Wi-Fi and GPS from your phone. You press down on the crown to get to the home screen. The watch will take dictation and offers very precise synchronized time to plus or minus 50 milliseconds. It also has a “Taptic” haptic processor that offers a subtle vibrational feedback for notifications, alarms and other messages, plus a force-sensitive touch display.
