Inside the Apple Watch: the Tech Behind Apple's New Wearable Apple finally took the wraps off its much-rumored Apple Watch on Tuesday, showing off features and functions on the wrist-mounted device, which is poised to shake up the growing wearables industry. Although the Apple Watch won't be available until early 2015, and there were limited opportunities for even those at the event to touch the device, the technology contained in the Apple Watch is, at first blush, pretty impressive. Let's take a look at what we know so far. Digital Crown The Digital Crown on the Apple Watch is something of a throwback as it's a return to the physical rotation mobile controller we saw on the original iPod. Nevertheless, in the area of wearables, it's a welcome innovation. SiriLike the iPhone, all you need to do to activate Siri on the Apple Watch is raise your wrist, or press and hold the Digital Crown and say "Hey Siri" to enable voice interaction. Screen The square screen of the Apple Watch is a flexible Retina display, protected by a layer of sapphire glass. Chip
Wearable technology Wearable technology, fashionable technology, wearable devices, tech togs, or fashion electronics are clothing and accessories incorporating computer and advanced electronic technologies. The designs often incorporate practical functions and features, but may also have a purely critical or aesthetic agenda. History Wearable technology is related to both the field of ubiquitous computing and the history and development of wearable computers. The calculator watch, introduced in the 1980s, was one original piece of widespread worn electronics. Ilya Fridman designed a Bluetooth headset into a pair of earrings with a hidden microphone. The Spy TIE includes a color video camera and USB Heating Gloves keep hands warm when plugged in. Wearable technology has applications in monitoring and realtime feedback for athletes as well. The decreasing cost of processing power and other components is encouraging widespread adoption and availability. Prototypes See also
how were all going to be using wearable technology Wearable Tech World londo1 bii mobile insights is wearable technology the future of mobile Nike and Apple working on ‘stylish’ new wearable technology | Technology Apple and Nike are working on new item of wearable technology that will have greater integration into existing gadgets, and is less obvious and more “stealth”, according to the Nike chief executive, Mark Parker. Nike has long been making wearable technology, originally partnering with Apple for its Nike+ running sensor range in 2006, which connected wirelessly to the iPod. Nike discontinued its FuelBand fitness-tracking bracelet in April, shutting down the team that made it, which saw two of its key engineers move to Apple to work on the Apple Watch. “I think it’s going to be a big part of the future, absolutely,” said Parker in an interview with Bloomberg TV. Parker reiterated that Nike had worked at length with Apple in the past, with Parker personally working with Apple founder Steve Jobs, and that having Apple’s chief executive, Tim Cook, on the board of Nike was a big advantage. “Technologically we can do things together that we couldn’t do independently,” Parker said.
