Although some may seem incredible, according to what has been seen, at least for now Apple does not foresee the possibility that users can scrolling in the applications of their new smartwatch, or sliding your finger on the screen, as we can do on the iPhone or iPad, or using the digital wheel.
Force Touch Capado for App Developers
According to what he said Apple, Force Touch is the most important interaction functionality after inventing the Multi Touch. This is a new level of interaction between the user and the device which allows the watch the ability to perceive the level of force used to press on the screen. This feature, in third-party applications, will only serve to display a context menu.
Everything that is shown through the Apple Wach is decided, developed and rendered by the iPhone, including animations. This means that the Apple Watch It is not, and will not be for a long time, a device capable of replacing a telephone.
Problems with heart monitoring
The sensor that measures the heart rate or heart rate monitor, which is integrated into the clock Apple will work solely and exclusively with the software and services of Apple, preventing developers from taking advantage of this.
The boys of the Californian firm have included in the Apple Watch the new touch feedback engine which vibrates after the commands, known as the Taptic Engine, may not be accessible through third-party applications, unless it is for use with Push Notifications. The set of vibrations that the boys of Cupertino have included especially in their new device will be only and exclusively for the applications of Apple.

NFC chip payments

Custom Sound Settings
With the Apple Watch Users will not be able to configure custom sounds for announcements or notifications, on the clock of Apple everything will happen through the vibrations, which may not always be a sufficient warning for the user.
No In-App Purchases
At the moment the applications will work in the Apple Watch With all its functions. This does not rule out that in the future it is possible that In-App purchases can arrive and that they are able to unlock advanced and dedicated features specifically for the watch.
Although this should not be a problem, it is a reality, in this case the Apple Watch It can work with only one iPhone at a time, so connection to several devices is discarded at the same time.
We already know that it is the first version of Apple Watch and, of course, has its advantages and disadvantages. What is clear is that over time Apple You can improve this device in a way that will include new features and options, hopefully many of these are some of those described above.
