LG is set to introduce its response to the Apple Watch at the start of March, with a stainless steel body that it hopes can rival Apple’s luxury watch.
The more I see it, the more I like the as-yet-unnamed new typeface Apple is making use of both for Apple Watch’s on-screen UI and its marketing materials. (The same font is made use of for the inscriptions on the back of the watch.) Initially glance throughout the occasion, I thought it might be DIN (which is exactly what Apple makes use of in the iOS 7 Video camera app), however it’s not. It resembles Colfax, but it’s not Colfax I’ve heard whispers that its name (or codename?) is Cobalt. We may not know for sure till WatchKit ships.
If anything, Apple is a latecomer to the fitness wearable trend, even though many physical fitness gadgets currently communicate with the iPhone. Apple made a huge deal about the health and activity apps, as well as the sensing units in the Apple Watch, and I think they are on the ideal track to something that will fundamentally shift the way a great deal of people work out. In other words, while Apple didn’t invent the activity tracker, they can help make it more traditional provided their sway with traditional consumers.
The fight of the smartwatches – Apple’s items have actually already been used as de facto smartwatches. The iPod nano’s small, square touchscreen was a natural suitable for the wrist. Finding the possible to turn the iPod into a watch face, business such as Lunatik make kits that consisted of installs and slick straps.
But another aspect, clearly, is a desire to keep much of the Apple Watch’s performance and software application design key up until it’s closer to shipping. They revealed early to keep it from leaking from the Eastern supply chain– simply take a look at what occurred with the iPhones 6 this year. There’s no Osborne Impact to fear because they aren’t yet selling watches or wearables of any sort– the only watches whose sales may suffer this holiday because of the Apple Watch pre-announcement are those from other business.
