Practical Mac The Apple Watch has been on the market for two months, the initial backlog of orders has cleared up, and as of this week many retail Apple Stores carry watch inventory so you can reserve a model and pick it up the same day. I’ve had mine (42 mm aluminum Sport model) since the first day of availability and find it genuinely useful, as noted in my earlier review. Unlocking the watch: When the watch senses it’s been removed from your wrist, such as at bedtime, it automatically locks. In the morning, instead of tapping my pass code on the tiny screen after I put the watch on, I simply unlock my paired iPhone and the watch also unlocks. This feature can be found in the Apple Watch app on the iPhone, under Passcode > Unlock with iPhone. Receiving phone calls: Surprisingly, one of my favorite features is how it handles receiving phone calls, which is weird because I rarely think of my iPhone as a telephone anymore. I usually have the sound muted, so a call is a persistent tapping on my wrist from the watch’s Taptic Engine. I can choose to decline the call and send the caller to voice mail or take the call on my wrist — which I do fairly often when I’m working alone at home. In the Apple Watch app on the iPhone, turn off any nonessential app notifications.
At its Worldwide Developer’s Conference, Apple announced its upcoming Watch interface, WatchOS 2, which cracks open many core device features to third-party developers while adding new features and making the Watches more independent of the... There will be more customizable watch faces with intriguing effects, a Friends list that can expand beyond the current 12-contact limit, and new freedom for native apps to tap into the Watches’ on-board processors and sensors. ) Here’s a brief look at some of the new things you’ll be able to do with an Apple Watch when WatchOS 2 debuts to consumers in the fall—software developers can get a version now. Many apps, including those from third-part developers, will be able to run on the Watch without checking back with an iPhone. Fitness apps will now work on the Watch, even without connection to an iPhone, and Siri will be able to handle many functions, including initiating an exercise routine. New face, new tricks. Apple will put a friendlier face on its Watch interface: your friendlier face. If you choose an album, you’ll be greeted by a new face every time you tilt your wrist up to view the Watch.
