In smart watches Apple Watch Series 7, a mysterious module was unexpectedly discovered, operating at a very high frequency of 60.5 GHz.
The mention of him was found in documents in the FCC database. It also states that the module is activated when the watch is placed on a proprietary magnetic docking station. It is assumed that we are talking about a specialized device used in Apple service centers. That is, this is a module for internal use by company specialists, for example, for diagnostics or configuration.
The docking station is also known to have part number A2687 and is powered by a USB-C port. One of the sources speaks about the possible data transfer rate through the negotiated channel up to 480 Mbit / s, that is, at the USB 2.0 level. Perhaps, with the release of the watch on sale, there will be more information about the mysterious module.
Apple Watch Ultra can withstand diving deeper than 40 meters, which Apple says
Yesterday the Apple Watch Ultra was hit with a hammer, today we can see how they tried to drown it.
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 by a new patent
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
1.78″ AMOLED screen, 105 training modes, up to 10 days of autonomy. OnePlus Nord Watch details and renderings
OnePlus is rumored to be launching the low-cost OnePlus Nord Watch smartwatch as early as next week. Like it or not, we will soon find out, but the source turned out to have quite high-quality renders of the device, as well as details about the technical characteristics.
Judging by these pictures, OnePlus is not going to copy the Apple Watch, however, the design does not show much novelty either. The device will receive a fairly large AMOLED display with a diagonal of 1.78 inches and a frame rate of 60 Hz.
The OnePlus Nord Watch interface demonstrates the presence of SpO2 and heart rate sensors, as well as a stress monitoring system. Surely they will be able to track the quality of sleep. It is also reported that there are 105 training modes, support for Bluetooth 5.2 wireless communication. Autonomy will be 10 days – in active mode, and in standby mode – up to 30 days. The cost has not yet been named, but everything shows that these watches will not be expensive.
