This is Apple Watch

Apple has debuted the highly anticipated iWatch device… and it’s called Apple Watch. The device is unlike anything Apple has made before, and the gadget features a completely new interface that is navigated with a digital crown located along the side of the device – but it also has a touch screen that is pressure sensitive. This thing is incredibly innovative, has a variety of sensors, interfaces with your iPhone, and does so much more. Here’s a peak at the Apple Watch (officially, WATCH) which will be out next year, with some details, tons of pictures, and some must-see videos of the device in action.

The first thing you’ll notice is the huge amount of customization available with the Apple Watch, ranging from a variety of digital watch faces, six different interchangeable wrist straps ranging from multi-color sport bands, to leather, a stainless steel link bracelet, and a stainless steel mesh version. There’s even a version in 18 karat gold version, called the Apple Watch Edition, which is offered in standard gold and rose gold.

Apple Watch functions as a communication device, a health and fitness tracker, a payment interface, a user interface to things like mapping and messaging, and so much more. Included in the device are sensors that will let you ‘feel’ the interface, meaning things like messages and notifications will alert you via tactile feedback on your wrist. Because of the internet connectivity, you’ll need an iPhone for the Apple Watch to function as intended. The feature set is tremendous, you really need to watch a video to get a glimpse of how it works.

Apple Watch Videos

The Apple Watch “Reveal” video is 2 minutes long and shows how WATCH was debuted to the world, giving a glimpse of the wearable:

Don’t miss these videos, they really help to explain and understand the Apple Watch.

Apple Watch Pricing, Availability

Pricing starts at $349, and goes up from there, which we’ll certainly find out more details on when it ships next year in early 2015.

    what a let down! UI is not bad but the look of the unit… Meh! is so right on!

    • Fred says:

      When Steve Jobs said,”There’s one more thing.” it meant something new, innovative, and powerful was to be revealed. Tim Cook thinks that by merely uttering Jobs’ classic phrase will somehow add relevance and importance to an otherwise redundant and ridiculous product.

      Steve wept.

    It looked pretty bad on Tim Cook’s wrist. Of course, in 5 years, this will be much nicer, but there is no way I’m buying this version, even before I found out it was 349 :)

    I could see corporate beeper uses right now, but again for 349 it’s expensive for this.

    Yeah, yeah, and people called iPad just a larger, duller iPhone…

    • Fred says:

      I wonder where Apple Watch will rank among other legendary Apple products like Hockey Puck mouse, G4 Cube, 20th anniversary Mac, and Pippin. The flipping fashionistas have hijacked Apple.

    So, so disappointing.

  5. T23 says:

    It’s not the looks that disappoint, it’s what it can NOT do. Based on the speculation I was expecting a little more weight on the medical side, i.e. blood pressure, sugar, fat and oxygen levels etc. essentially things that would have made it into a monitor that everyone over 50 would need to have. Getting a pad on the the back for standing up once every hour is not going to cut it I’m afraid…

    “here’s a PEEK” not “here’s a peak”

    Does this run Android?

    I have a friend who said it is KitKat based 5.8, but I don’t know yet.

    Maybe Apples are being sneaky.
