You would think that with Spotify being available on iOS devices for so long, and with the Apple Watch having been around for years, that an official Spotify app for the Apple Watch would have been launched a long time ago. As many Spotify users know by now, this wasn’t the case, at least until now.
Apple had recently released the watchOS 5.1 update which was meant to introduce new features, fixes, improvements, and more, but we’re sure that Apple did not intend for the update to brick devices because that’s exactly what it did, according to various reports in which quite a few users reported that their Apple Watches were bricked after installing the update.
It is no secret that Apple has always tried to position the Apple Watch as a luxury piece of tech, releasing metal and leather bands that aim to try and bring a touch of class to the device. They have also teamed up with various fashion houses, such as Hermes, who have created even more luxurious straps.
Apple has come under fire in the past where it has been pointed out that a few of Apple’s suppliers and manufacturing partners have used illegal labor, namely workers who are below the legal working age. To Apple’s credit they have worked swiftly to deal with this issues, but it looks like the problem has reared its ugly head again.
When Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 4, one of the features of the smartwatch is the built-in ECG monitoring tool. However Apple did note that the feature will not be available at launch and will arrive at a later date. It was also mentioned that it will be limited to the US, presumably due to regulatory clearances required for different regions and markets.
The Apple Watch has been credited multiple times over the years in helping to save lives. This is thanks to the built-in heart rate monitor which can detect abnormalities in your heart rate, and will notify the wearer when it is unusually high, which can sometimes be symptom of an impending heart attack.
If you like listening to music on the go and you have a Wear OS smartwatch, there’s a good chance that Spotify could be one of the apps and services you use. The good news is that if you thought that Spotify app on Wear OS could stand to do with some improvements, you’ll be pleased to learn that’s exactly what happened.
Huawei has been dabbling in smartwatches for the past few years, with 2017 bringing us the Huawei Watch 2. Now it looks like the company is back with a third iteration of its smartwatch in the form of the Huawei Watch GT, a watch that we’ve been hearing about for a while now based on various leaks and rumors, some of which have since been confirmed at Huawei’s event in […]
Last year Montblanc launched the Summit smartwatch and it looks like they are back this year with its successor, the Summit 2. However not only is the Summit 2 Montblanc’s latest smartwatch, but it will also be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset that should in theory help with battery life.
Apple had previously conducted a clinical study with the Apple Watch on how it might be able to better detect and analyze the wearer’s heart rate. We had also heard that they are planning on donating Apple Watches to a study on binge eating, and it looks like Apple is nowhere close to slowing down.
We know that Apple had previously used the Apple Watch in a study with Stanford to determine if the device was good enough to track your heart rate and rhythm. It seems that the study helped them come up with new features for the Apple Watch and improve on existing ones. Now it seems that the company could be interested in tackling another health aspect: binge eating.
Battery life for most smartwatches aren’t particularly long, and having to charge them every few days (versus traditional watches that almost never need to be charged) is a bit off-putting for some. However it seems that Apple has made some improvements with the Apple Watch Series 4 that could convince people to hop on board.
Smartwatches these days for the most part are seen as fashion devices. Sure they do come with various health and fitness tracking capabilities, but a lot of them have been designed so that they can be used for day-to-day wear like at the office or when going out with friends without it looking like you’re headed to the gym.
Apple launched the Apple Watch Series 4 not too long ago and the device comes with several new capabilities, such as fall detection and a built-in ECG monitoring tool. Now in the past we have heard stories of how the Apple Watch has saved many lives by alerting the wearer to abnormal heart rates, but it seems that the Series 4 could be even better at doing so.
