Contactless payments sounds like the perfect solution where it is convenient and all users need to do is wave their card or phone against a reader and they’re good to go. However, a recent report from the New York Post is highlighting some potential issues with the system, where some users are now being accidentally charged.
One of the features of the new Apple Watch is its always-on display. This might seem like a drain on battery life, but Apple has managed to balance it out by using an LTPO display. The good news is that this year’s iPhones could also end up using similar technology, resulting in potentially better battery life.
Our smartwatches and fitness trackers these days come with built-in heart rate sensors. While these might be useful for tracking our workouts and maybe even saving our lives, they can also be used to solve crime. This is how police figured out that an alleged victim of an anti-semitic stabbing might have been lying about the attack.
We’ve seen how Apple has created (PRODUCT)RED devices before, like with the iPhone. However, according to a report from WatchGeneration.fr, they claim that Apple could have a new (PRODUCT)RED option for the Apple Watch Series 5 in the works that could be announced soon enough.
One of the newer features in the Apple Watch is the ability for it to check whether or not the user is experiencing Afib. This is thanks to the built-in ECG monitoring tool that according to reports, has saved quite a number of lives ever since it was introduced. However, it seems that not everyone is enamored by the feature.
When you think of Apple, what do you associate the company with? Depending on who you ask, the answer could be computers, smartphones, tablets, the iPod, and so on, but apparently that’s not necessarily the legacy that Apple’s CEO Tim Cook wants for the company.

If you’re trying to track a workout with your Apple Watch, you’ll have to manually select the activity from the watch itself. However, it seems that in the future, you may no longer have to. This is according to a recently discovered patent where it suggests that future Apple Watches might be able to tell if you’re indoors or outdoors.
Aluminum is a popular metal that is used in many tech products today. Apple is a company that uses the material extensively across its product lineup, like in the iPhones, iPad, Apple Watch, MacBooks, iMac, and so on. However, the manufacturing process of aluminum isn’t necessarily the most environmentally-friendly, but that has changed.
Heart rate sensors aren’t exactly new and we’ve seen them make their debut in fitness trackers in the past, where previously they would exist as separate standalone accessories.

The Apple Watch is capable of many things such as detecting when a user falls, or an irregular heart beat, and it seems that in the future, it could come with sensors where it could also be capable of detecting if a person may be exhibiting symptoms and signs that they could have Parkinson’s disease or some kind of tremor related health issue.
One of the features of the Apple Watch is the SOS feature, where it is similar to the SOS feature on the iPhone where users will be able to quickly call for help and reach emergency services. This is exactly what a couple of kayakers did when they found themselves stranded in the sea after their kayaks sank and they were not wearing lifejackets.
So Black Friday was last week which meant that there were a lot of great deals to be had. One man by the name of John Browne thought so when he came across an Amazon deal for the Apple Watch Series 4 where it was enjoying a £100 discount off its original price, where he only ended up paying £299 for it.
