Apple Watch - Computer Definition
A family of smartwatches from Apple that debuted in April 2015 with more than 40 models from USD $349 to $17,000. Compatible with iPhones starting with the iPhone 5, the screen's Force Touch feature senses the difference between a tap and a press to enable two modes of touch interaction. Available in small and large case sizes (38 and 42mm) and numerous band styles, the watch's Taptic Engine "taps" the wearer on the wrist for notifications. Five months after the original unveiling, more Apple Watches were introduced, including Hermes-branded models. Wi-Fi Too If the Apple Watch was previously paired with the iPhone via Bluetooth but becomes of range, it can use the same Wi-Fi network to send iMessages, an animated sketch, taps and heartbeats to other Apple Watch users (see Digital Touch). It can also run Siri over Wi-Fi. Lots of Choices No smartwatch ever debuted with such a variety of models. Because they are interchangeable, an industry of third-party Apple Watch bands sprang up almost overnight.
