Apple does not name the number of sold smart watches, so as to judge the popularity of the new items can be only by indirect signs. Analysts say the numbers from 11 to 13 million sold copies and indicate a high level of satisfaction of our clients. However, the number of Apple Watch sold is much less than the number of compatible smartphones in the hands of users. Apple is ready to offer the device in the second generation that will allow to increase sales?
The most serious dissatisfaction among users of the Apple Watch for the “brake”. Despite the release of an operating system watchOS 2 with support for native applications, the software on Apple Watch continues to show the wheel load. And the “thinking” of not only third party but also native apps that, in theory, should work as quickly as possible. Delays occur not only when uploading data from your iPhone, but the interface.
The solution to this problem lies in the interaction between the Apple Watch and the iPhone. Watch forced continually to turn to your smartphone for new data. In Apple Watch 2 this problem should not be, according to sources. Apple will make an updated Chrono less dependent on the iPhone, which will be possible thanks to integration of a new Wi-Fi chip. In addition, Apple Watch no GPS-module, so location data is received from a smartphone. Because of this, it is necessary either to carry the iPhone, or to abandon attempts to fix the route of the run.
Another improvement to the Apple Watch 2 comes to the capabilities of the device out of the box. Apple has hired many experts from the field of health, therefore, is ready to offer new ways to manage health. According to rumors, Apple is indeed working on a function for detecting irregular heart rhythm in order to notify the user of possible danger. The appearance of such options, however, questionable – in the beginning, the Office for quality control of foodstuff and medicines (FDA) has refused to register Apple Watch in the category “medical equipment”.
Apple Watch 2 will be built-in blood pressure monitor and track the quality of sleep, and in the long term sensor glucose levels. As a result, users will be able to know the level of sugar in the blood during use of the device.
What about the built-in camera? All Apple devices equipped with such technology, and therefore its appearance in the Apple Watch 2 is quite predictable. A FaceTime App in the Watch will be mounted in the top of the frame of the device and will allow to make video calls.
Do not expect that the new model of “smart” hours will be able to work much longer without recharging. The battery life if improve, slightly. In Apple found that the average owner of Apple Watch completes your day with 30-40 % remaining charge, and the replenishment of energy reserves during the night, usually not an issue.
