If the Apple Watch 8 is like this, then I will definitely buy it.

After disabling Apple Pay in Russia many users, including me, began to think about how to quickly sell your Apple Watch. No, really, paying by the clock for many was almost the only feature for which they were bought. I highly doubt that every owner of a smart gadget logs into the Health app every day and checks their cardio endurance indicators. Let’s be honest, most people just don’t need it. The question of the advisability of buying a smart watch from Apple was brewing even with Apple Pay working, and now it has literally stood on edge. Today I propose to think about what should be the Apple Watch 8so that the Russian user thinks about buying them and stops looking towards the cut-down Apple Watch SE, which is gaining more and more popularity among our compatriots.

We talk about the chips of the new Apple Watch, for which it would be worth buying them.

How long does an Apple Watch hold a charge?

Now most models Apple Watch keep charging about a day. No, you can, of course, turn off all sensors, turn off Always On, disable sleep tracking and squeeze two or three days out of them, but then it simply makes no sense to buy smart watches.

The autonomy of the Apple Watch is so-so, but there are reasons for this.

Over the years of the existence of the Apple Watch, we have already understood that Apple cannot do anything Apple Watch autonomy it is better. Well, think for yourself, firstly, the watch case is very small, and secondly, sensors are crammed here and I don’t want different functions. Want a week of charge? In this case better buy mi band and do not know grief. Now it is practically no different from the Apple Watch.

I think Apple needs a complete overhaul. power saving mode on Apple Watch – this will be a real topic! Just imagine: in the Watch application on the iPhone there is a separate section Power saving mode, where each user can flexibly configure the disabling of certain functions on the watch. Whoever needs it will turn off heart rate control, who cares about the pulse, he will do without notifications, and so on.

Eco mode in the Apple Watch is a good idea, but it needs to be expanded.

Plus, you can make separate templates like “Athlete”, “I take care of my health” and “Office employee”. Well, for each mode, parameters will be initially set, which will turn off when the Power Saving Mode is activated. Conveniently? In my opinion, very much!

By the way, Mark Gurman from Bloomberg just a couple of weeks ago already predicted the appearance of this feature. According to him, in watchOS 9 A power-saving mode will appear, with which the device can run some applications and functions without consuming a large amount of battery. His words yes to Tim Cook in the ears!

New Apple Watch 8 sensors

Apple Watch sensors – The topic is very complex. In my articles, I have already said more than once that the glucometer in the Apple Watch will not appear for a long time. Well, simply because the technology is far from non-invasive sugar measurement. They are still not really used in medical practice, what people expect from the Apple Watch is not clear. On the other hand, it is possible to ensure the full integration of a smart watch with an insulin pump and regulate the flow of medication on the watch – yes, easily.

Apple, add a temperature sensor to your Apple Watch! We ask no more.

Concerning tonometer, then it’s the same story. The technology hasn’t gotten to the point where Apple is adding a blood pressure monitor to its watch. Yes, we can say that the Galaxy Watch4 have such a feature, but few people know that it is not implemented with the highest accuracy. I’m sure Apple won’t do that.

Temperature sensor in Apple Watch – this is exactly what I would really like. At the same time, I am almost sure that the smart watch will not give out a specific temperature. At most they will write something like “I think you have a fever” – nothing more. Judging by the fact that the Apple Watch predicts a new sensor, I’m betting on a thermometer. It is not so difficult to implement, but everyone should like it. If such a chip appears, I will update without talking.

How Apple Watch tracks sleep

Another wish for the new Apple Watch is better sleep monitoring. There are a lot of apps for watches in the App Store, the functionality of which is an order of magnitude ahead of the built-in capabilities of the Apple Watch in this matter.

Sleep phases, snoring, sleep talking, breathing problems (sleep apnea) and a bunch of other options that can be implemented in the Apple Watch 8. It is not clear why Apple allows third-party applications to run such functionality, while itself hacks and adds only breathing rate control.

Why are third-party sleep monitoring apps on Apple Watch more than native?

The only assumption that comes to mind is autonomy. It will be very unpleasant to fall asleep with a half-charged watch, and wake up with a dead one, agree? Well, again, all this can be implemented without problems through the power saving mode. Charging less than 50% – sleep monitoring functions are cut. Now, if they do this, yes, I will buy a new Apple Watch without Apple Pay. And if they add some feature that no one needs, such as the Sleep Application with all the statistics, let the Cupertino people leave such hours for themselves.

Why you need Focus on iPhone

Improved focusing is another requirement for Apple Watch 8. Yes, in WatchOS 8, if you swipe from the bottom edge of the watch and tap on the crescent moon icon, you will see some advanced Do Not Disturb modes, but this is very little.

Now, when you go to the Focus settings on your iPhone, you stumble upon the Accounting toggle switch on all devices. If you turn it on, then all your gadgets automatically take over the settings from your iPhone. But we need to make sure that Focus can be configured on each individual device.

There is no need for new Focus modes in the Apple Watch, you can give better flexible settings for each of them.

Well, that is, if the iPhone receives notifications all indiscriminately, then only a select few come to the Apple Watch. This is especially true during sleep. Every time I go to bed, I turn on the Sleep mode on my watch. iPhone, iPad, Mac automatically pick up this setting, which I would really not like. I want that when I turn on Sleep on the watch, some parameters are set, and when I turn it on on the iPhone, others.

Ideally, of course, it would be to see separate focusing columns in the settings on each device:

  • Apple Watch.
  • iPhone.
  • iPad.
  • Mac.

So that on any device I can easily set all the necessary parameters Focusing for Apple Watch. Like I’m working on a Mac, no notifications should come to it, and everything should come to the Apple Watch, with the exception of instant messengers, for example.
