Apple's iWatch: Fresh opportunity for SmartWatch Application Development using WatchKit – iOS8 Apps
Casually speaking, What is a watch used for? Timekeeping? Yeah, everybody knows that. What about an early time Smart-Watch? Calculations and game playing was all what it provided with.
But what if it could help calling your friends & chatting with them or beep you about your current meetings, track your activities, pop up the social network notifications, tell you the current weather conditions or allow simply anything you could do with your handy computer.
In this age of innovations, Apple, the biggest Consumer electronics company has portrayed its skills and shown up some extremely useful device. Known by the name iWatch, this product holds no bar and has come out with its best; with the increasing competition, all the huge companies have their own products advertised before the audience, but iWatch has the stimulating factor within a glimpse of the device.
First plus is the amazing APPEARANCE:
The Digital Crown has its incredible use for navigation, zooming and getting back to the home screen. Next comes the device base- Made from alloys of Aluminium, Stainless Steel and 18 karat yellow and rose gold, the base has been created from the point of view of comfort using this wearable computer. Later, is a variety of those classy bands: Leather or sport band with beautiful modern buckles and closures makes the iWatch even more convenient for use. Well it was all about the style.
The second and a bigger plus is the allowance for Third Party Integration!
Apple is said to be distributing the SDK for iOS Apps developers. Companies are now targeting at getting bigger by the passage of time and the arrival of newer and better technologies. Akin to the working of iPhone, the iWatch will have only few extra features of fitness sensors and NFC integration. So those already developing the iOS applications will be using the SDK and shall get going with the change of device yet a similar back end.
In exception to these above stated benefits, there is something else this attractive helpful machine is providing. tell me who would like lugging the phone everywhere, whether on a run or in wedding dance? People would definitely like putting it aside and if they do so there are chances of missing a latest notification. Wearable as this, may solve such problems and using the similar iOS application of health, the user can track his/her fitness or activities records, can feel the tactile feedback of the notifications on the run.
A widened scope, a better use: iWatch is undoubtedly going to lay its ground in the coming years of innovation, competition and usefulness. One area of concern is the risks involved in using iWatch. It may cause distraction while driving and may prove to be fatal. Apple must think about this increased danger of car accidents when using the product while driving.
Aspirations do exist, but Apple has created an appealing fantasy of the wearable which it must meet or its sustenance in the market may rest at stake. However, Apple has always earned its trust and we hope it does so in every context even in the future.
One of the biggest dependency having for this SmartWatch.. and the matter of the fact, apple watch doesn't have its own cellular connections, one can receive calls and messages if any iOS device is near by or bind with.
