Today’s announcement of Apple turned out to be rich in new items: the company not only introduced a new version of the inexpensive iPad (iPad 9th generation) and iPhone 13, but also the Watch Series 7 smart watch. …
The “World’s Best Smartwatch” has a new display that’s 20% larger than the Watch Series 6 and 70% brighter. The bezels have been thinned to fit 50% more text than before, making it easier to reply to messages with your watch. Along with the new display, the Watch Series 7 has received a ton of new themes.
The design is somewhat refreshed, with rounded corners. Apple calls the Watch Series 7 its most durable watch: it is IP6X dustproof and water resistant (WR 50 marking, which means the watch can withstand occasional immersion in water).
Apple Watch Series 7 is compatible with Apple Watch Series 6 bands, but the company has tried to introduce a large number of new bands as well. The watch also supports fast charging – it charges 33% faster than Watch Series 6 (from 0 to 80% in 45 minutes). A USB-C cable is used for charging. Apple Watch Series 7 supports the determination of heart rate and blood oxygenation level, and can record an ECG. Several new sports modes have been introduced.
The exact date for the start of sales of Watch Series 7 is not specified – Apple simply said that it will be possible to buy the new product in the fall. Prices in the US start at $ 380.
No, the Apple Watch Ultra is not a copy of the iPhone 14. The repairability of the watch is not up to par
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.
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, 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
