The Californian company today shared its new Apple Watchwhose main novelty will be the possibility of having the screen always on, still maintaining the battery for a day that the previous ones had.
This novelty will allow us to see the time without raising our wrist or touching the screen. On the other hand, in more than 150 countries the Apple Watch – only if it is the version with mobile data – it will call emergencies even without the iPhone.
As a novelty, it will also have a compass for the first time so that users can know in which direction they are going and there will also be a new version of titanium.
Screen always on, now in the Apple Watch
Next I will tell you a little more about this new technology. First of all, the spheres have been optimized for this new watch but the change is in “a low-temperature oxide and polysilicon screen of the sector, the ultra-low consumption display controller, an efficient integrated energy control circuit, a new ambient light sensor ”and that when we lower the wrist, the Apple Watch reduce brightness
This will allow the Apple Watch Series 5 have a battery life of 18 hours a dayto –according to Apple- approximately.
The new Apple Watch includes compass
Another novelty we did not expect is the arrival of the compass at Apple Watch. This has an especially relevant function that is knowing where they are looking.
Further, The company has added three complications that will allow us to see it with the naked eye. Users will also know the degree of inclination, latitude, longitude and altitude with this new Apple Watch.
Emergency calls, now internationally
Emergency calls will now be made to the corresponding emergency numbers of the place where we are, since it is compatible with more than 150 countries as we mentioned before.
