10 outstanding Apple Watch features


Apple has set the stage for another big event on March 9th, when it is expected to tell us more about the Apple Watch. We already know a lot: the timepiece will arrive sometime in April, according to Tim Cook, and many of the key features have been unveiled as well.

With just a few days before the event, we sum up the 10 outstanding Apple Watch features that make the new gadget stand out among all the rest. This quick refresh on Apple's timepiece will be a good base for the many more new features that we expect the company to unveil at the event. We also expect to see demonstrations of a lot of new apps, and rumors have already churned a pretty fascinating number of apps that could be initially be available on the Apple Watch app store.

With no further ado, take a look at these 10 distinct, outstanding Apple Watch features.

So you're going to tell him what he saw? We know as a fact, Apple has never used an original design for a product. They take something they've seen and refined it. But I rather prove you wrong!!!!!!! So I shall.http://www.esquire.com/style/mens-accessories/g669/the-watch-awards-1110/ The watch at this link received an award in 2010 for its design, which was exactly 5 years ago Its style is very similar to the Apple Watch. Now please try to deny it. Apple makes nice looking stuff, but for you to think they would ever make an original design is wishful thinking. It has and never will happen. I am not saying Apple copied this watch, I am saying the overall design of the Apple Watch has been does 1000's of times and it is not unique to Apple. All Apple did was bevel the edges for a cleaner look which was likely harder to do or more expensive to do in the past.

Too bad that the watch could only show the time. Please.

Some are nifty options, some are hardly unique to the smartwatch world, some are really gimmicky. I have been impressed with certain design choices, but as to features, not so much.

8 out of these 10 OUTSTANDING features have been on android wear since day one. Hell, even half of them has been on the Gear watches for 16 months now lol

4. TyrionLannister unregistered

LOL. So true. But you still got in the click-bait/

Not really. I knew exactly what i was going to read, but i wanted to point out to the iSheeps that these are so yesterday features for Android Wear and Tizen users. Because you know, they ll go all over the comment section annoying us with their typical Apple leads and the rest follows comments.

lol so true. Amazing how brainwashed many can be! I have a Samsung Gear 2 with more than what is mentioned in this article and believe me it is a wonderful smartwatch! It even serves as a IR remote for TV, STB, Airconditioner, camera, and has some perfectly synced apps with my Note4.

And which ones ? And how they were implemented ? Poorly And who is using them ? Nobody You know android wear literally doesn't exist. It will start to show up when first Apple watch copycats getting given away for free will Appear in comming months.

So basically you're admitting that those features are stolen from Android Wear and Tizen? Plus, even if they didn't sell any unit, that doesn't give Apple the right to go on a stealing spree from Android.

Even if Apple hypotheticaly stole anything from android, google's "open source approach" to allow everyone copy everything allows them to do so. And no I am just asking which features do you think they "stole" ?

do you even know what is open source??? or you're just a high school kid???

17. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

Literally not existing means it isn't there. Even if there is 1 Android Wear watch in the entire universe, it literally exists.

All of them. Damn good, apparently, since Apple is again stealing from the Dessert Menu (Android, for those who don't catch the pun). At least 700k people, if the shipment data is true. Compare that to probably 20 beta testers for Apple Watch.

Yes with lags and several restarts!!!!

56. willard12 unregistered

Yup. When all else fails, just say "it lags" over and over.

maherk, WHICH ONES? and how are they IMPLEMENTED? come on!

I basically answered the question with my rant of all 10 outstanding features. Just go and look.

You are most correct, but being the first, doesn't make you most successful e.g. Google wallet; no one really cared, now look at the success of Apple pay, and of course Google pay now smh.

Millions of people use Google Wallet. Just like billions of people eat McDonald's hamburgers, that doesn't mean it needs to be popularized. Everythign Appel does gets sensationalized no matter how small. Like this writer talking about how outstanding it is this watch can receive calls and make them. Great! Question, can it do it without being tied to a phone, because my smartwatch IS A PHONE and it costs less and does more. So which device is really OUTSTANDING. See what I mean? Apple needs to make themselves seen new and fresh. when they are weak and late. I have the Gear S, I pad 299, and the Apple watch cant even do 1/2 what my device can do, just like todays iPhone can't do half as much as my Note 4.

Another joke article to big up apple. These features are all old on android wear and galaxy gear

27. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

I have to disagree, some of them Android Wear has, but certainly not all of them. Some of them have even been implemented on Android Wear based on the Apple Watch (like tap).

60. AlikMalix unregistered

wando77, Which ONES? and how do you interact with those on Galaxy Gear?

66. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

Wow... I haven't really noticed his avatar before. But Tim Cook in a pink Nazi/Apple uniform is quite revolting and low.

The implementation Is impressive on Gear.

72. AlikMalix unregistered

Wow thanks for backing up your claim. Very informative. I'm now fully giving up, and switching to android. /s I've noticed that most of the time Anti-Apple spew is a one-liner. And when u ask to elaborate (to give them the chance to justify their claim at least) nothing comes out or something else like " well if Apple did it first - it was natural progression and androids would later got there too, but if andrpid got it first - Apple coppied and they have no brains at all".

Wait, why is it that almost all features showed here are definitely not distinctive against older android wear devices? Edit: probably another click-bait article from PA
