Garmin unveiled its latest wearable devices at CES 2022: the Garmin Venu 2 Plus and the Vivomove Sport.

The Garmin Venu 2 Plus is a complete smartwatch with a 1.3-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 416 x 416 pixels and an always-on screen. The Venu 2 Plus has a 43mm case and sits between the 40mm Venu 2S and the 45mm Venu 2, which were released in April. In addition, Garmin Venu 2 Plus received a speaker and microphone, which allows you to make calls without using a smartphone.

The microphone works over Bluetooth to support any smart assistant your phone has. There are three modes of operation: 9 days in smartwatch mode, GPS mode reduces the time to 24 hours, and GPS mode with music gives you only 8 hours.

The Garmin Venu 2 Plus smartwatch is already on sale on the Garmin website for $ 450. Vivomove Sport has expanded its hybrid watch collection with the vivomove line, which includes the Vivomove 3, Vivomove 3S and Vivomove Style models. They got analog arrows with a small touchscreen display in the bottom half of the screen that can be hidden. It offers information on heart rate, blood oxygen levels, sleep tracking, and exercise.

Garmin Body Battery monitors your body’s heartbeat irregularities as well as its ability to recover. There is also tracking of the menstrual cycle.

iFixit specialists dismantled the Apple Watch Ultra smart watch. They did not rate the maintainability, but the review makes it clear that after the iPhone 14, they expected more from the new product.

No, the Apple Watch Ultra is not a copy of the iPhone 14. The repairability of the watch is not up to par

Despite the presence of screws and the ease of removing the back cover, immediately after that there is the first problem. Apple uses a thin rubber pad to implement increased water resistance, and replacing it will be extremely difficult. But on the other hand, as we have already seen today, the watch is indeed able to withstand immersion to a depth of more than 40 meters.

In addition, it will be very difficult to dismantle the screen without damaging it. Here and persistent glue, and the wrong angle of prying.

And the bottom line is that it is the screen that needs to be dismantled in order to get to the battery. As a result, Watch Ultra disappointed iFixit specialists, but judging by the review, the watch is no worse than previous generations in terms of maintainability.

Apple Watch Ultra can withstand diving deeper than 40 meters

Yesterday the Apple Watch Ultra was hit with a hammer, today we can see how they tried to drown it.

Apple Watch Ultra can withstand diving deeper than 40 meters, which Apple says

New Apple, recall, has an increased degree of protection, including from water. The company itself says that the watch can be submerged to a depth of 130 feet or up to 40 meters. As you can see, in the experiment, a pressure was created in a special chamber that is higher than what corresponds to the indicated depth, and the watch survived such an experiment without difficulty. By the way, after exceeding the above depth, the watch signals this and stops showing the exact value, indicating only that the threshold of 130 feet has been exceeded.

Apparently, the author did not create pressure higher than that which is at a depth of 160 feet or almost 50 meters. At the same time, it is worth remembering that, in general, Watch Ultra meets the specifications, which imply the possibility of diving to a depth of up to 100 meters, but so far no one has arranged such a test for the watch.

Apple Watch may have Touch ID it is described

In 2017, a patent appeared on the web that described the Touch ID system in the Apple Watch. He never got to the level of finished technology, but it seems that the company has not forgotten about it. According to media reports, a new patent on the same topic was recently discovered on the net. He describes Touch ID as a kind of “new touch device.”

Judging by the published images, the fingerprint scanner can be placed in the side button. Judging by the same patent, the recognition system will be much smaller than in the iPhone and iPad, which will fit the fingerprint scanner and other data into the watch.

Note that the presence of a patent does not always mean the emergence of a finished technology. A commercial solution to the 2017 patent application has not emerged. However, it is possible that biometric identification will still appear in the Apple Watch.

Earlier it was reported that the first Apple Watch Ultra has already been unpacked and compared with 45 mm Apple Watch
