The Apple Watch announces release date, will you be buying one?
Those geeks over at Apple have announced an April shipping date for the Apple Watch that will no doubt polarise tech heads and fashionistas alike.
Aesthetically the ‘watch’ isn’t anything to bang on about and to be honest reminds us of those cheap sports watches you’d get as a teenager but there’s something to be said about the lure of effectively having an iPhone strapped to you at all times.
The Apple Watch features include:
- Its fitness app can read your heart rate, tell you how many calories you’ve burnt and encourage goal setting for the gym junkies.
- You can read messages and reply with an automated response or a new set of emoji’s at your disposal (:D).
- iPhone functions like calling, maps, social media apps and photo storing will also be available to use.
- You can make purchases with a swipe of the watch using Apple Pay….dangerous news for shopaholics.
So all in all it seems just like a glorified iPhone slung around your wrist; it’s not going to look entirely pretty but come on it’s an Apple product, come April if you don’t have it you’ll be writhing in absolute FOMO.
