Full Product Description
Stay connected in style with the 42mm Apple Watch Sport, which comes with a rose gold anodized aluminum chassis and a stone fluoroelastomer Sport band. Designed for users looking for the next generation of connectivity, Apple’s Watch moves your iPhone’s apps and functions to your wrist so you can do more while leaving your phone in your pocket.
Leave your phone in your pocket and view notifications on your wrist. Apple Watch displays alerts from your iPhone so you can respond or dismiss them at will. Its Taptic engine gives you a gentle tap on your wrist or an audio cue when notifications come in.
Complications are small widgets that appear on the face of your Watch and provide quick access to frequently used data. You can customize which complications you’d like to appear, including built-in complications like weather, calendar, and activity, or complications from your installed apps.
Talk to Apple’s digital assistant Siri just like you would on your iPhone to launch apps, record notes, search the web, reply to messages, and more. Simply hold down the digital crown or raise your wrist and say ‘Hey, Siri.’
Health and Fitness
The Activity app displays progress made towards your daily activity goals with three intuitive rings that grow the more you move, finally closing when you hit your targets. The Stand ring shows how often you’ve stood up to take a break from sitting, the Move ring shows how many active calories you’ve burned, and the Exercise ring shows how many minutes of brisk activity you’ve completed. Swipe up from the bottom of the Watch to view active calories burned, steps taken, and distance traveled.
Apple Pay is a secure mobile payment method that lets you pay for goods and services online and in-person without reaching for your wallet. You can add credit cards and rewards cards to Apple Pay, which does not store card numbers on your device or share them with merchants.
Heart Rate Monitor
Check your heart rate at any time with the Apple Watch’s built-in heart rate monitor. It uses an array of LEDs and sensors to photoplethysmographically determine how hard your heart is working. Every ten minutes it attempts to take a reading, which is then stored in the Health app. Certain conditions, such as movement, extreme temperatures, and tattoos can interfere with readings.
Instead of a vibration, the Apple Watch ‘taps’ on your wrist to alert you to new notifications and respond to inputs. It gives different types of taps in different situations, so you can feel the difference between a call and a text message without looking.
