After many rumors and leaks Apple has introduced a new range of products among which is not the iPhone 12 a device that, as the PERIODICO has already advanced, will present itself next october.
The main protagonist of Keynote 2020 has been the Apple Watch Series 6, that opens the service Oxygen in Bloode to provide more information about the user’s health and whose data can be consulted in the Health app. Provides trends over time to see if the blood oxygen level has changed, and includes updates on hardware like a faster S6 System in Package (SiP) chip, an always-on altimeter, and a wider range of case and strap finishes. It also adds features like family settings, sleep tracking, automatic handwash detection, new types of workouts, and the ability to select and share watch faces.
New Apple Watch improvements
The new device improves performance through a hardware redesigned that includes a new dual-core processor based on the A13 Bionic chip of the iPhone 11, the S6 SiP chip that goes 20% faster, thus achieving the apps they also open 20% faster and the device maintains 18 hours of autonomy.
Thanks to its powerful processor and ultra-wideband antennas, it will be possible to use the short-range wireless connection for new services such as unlocking the car with digital keys. It should be noted that it charges faster (reaches the maximum charge in 1.5 hours) and improves its autonomy when monitoring certain exercises, such as running indoors and outdoors.
The new one retina display Always on is up to 2.5 times brighter than the previous generation, so the watch face looks better in broad daylight. When the wrist is lowered, users will be able to access the notification center and control center, touch complications, and swipe to change the face without turning the screen fully on. The always-on altimeter together with GPS and nearby Wi-Fi networks, allows detect small changes in terrain elevation up to 30 cm above and below ground level, a figure that can be displayed as a complication in the sphere or training statistic.
In terms of choice, they are offered new boxes and a multitude of straps.
