Apple Watch 3 Release Date, News And Rumors

Siri powers a new watch face that displays the info that is most relevant to you, like traffic is light and it will take 16 minutes to get to work. Following on from the original Apple Watch's Mickey Mouse face, watchOS 4 will introduce Buzz, Woody and Jessie from Pixar's Toy Story franchise. Yes. The new feature will debut with watchOS 4 this fall and will be up for a free upgrade for every Apple Watch user.

Apple Watch will also be able to communicate seamlessly with as much as 80% of all NFC-enabled gym equipment, according to Apple, such as commercial machinery from leading manufacturers like Cybex, Schwinn, and Life Fitness.

The music app was also revamped with the aim of delivering more data and music at a glance. It will track performance over the course of a few days and recommend workouts to keep reaching new records. A preview will be available for developers immediately. Apple says these goals will be achievable because they're based on the user's actual workout history.

The new software could bring some new, more elaborate watch faces, as well as the ability to set the watch face to always display the time. Heart rate monitoring of HIIT workouts have typically been an area where wearables have struggled but we found the Apple Watch Series 2's heart rate sensor proved surprisingly capable. Simply put, Apple is riffing on Siri and the Apple Watch just like Amazon and Google talk about Alexa and Google Assistant, respectively. The watchOS 4 will let your Apple Watch sync directly with your gym equipment like treadmills; this feature is called Gym Connect. In watchOS 4, not only will users be able to sync multiple playlists with their Apple Watch at one time, but the overall look and feel - now featuring new music controls built directly into the workout app for easy navigation - has been redesigned. Apple Watch can now be paired via Bluetooth to smart devices including smart tennis rackets and glucose monitors.

Another fun feature is a way to configure your watch to start playing your desired workout playlist automatically whenever you begin your workout. All you need to do is tap the smartwatch on a dedicated area on compatible gym equipment and the data is automatically synched with the watch.
