Opinion: What’s missing from Apple Watch

It seems to me that the Apple Watch is one of the best Apple products in the last 5 years. In any case, none of the other gadgets gave me a radically new user experience. A lot of time has passed since the purchase, but I still can’t get enough of it. But there are some features that are sorely lacking for many users. And it would be okay to deal with an increase in battery life, which cannot be corrected in any way. The point is different: even cheap bracelets for three kopecks are sometimes capable of making a famous Apple accessory.

The Apple Watch is a cool gadget, but it still lacks something.

Like any other gadget, the Apple Watch is not without its drawbacks. Moreover, questions arise not about new hardware functions such as a sensor for measuring body composition. as in the Galaxy Watch 4, but to things that can be easily implemented programmatically.

Forgotten Apple Watch phone notification

If you only knew how many times you had to leave home with a forgotten iPhone, and then 30 minutes to go back through Moscow traffic jams, because it is simply unrealistic to spend a day without a phone.

We are not waiting for a new chip with a disconnection on the clock.

Tell me why you can’t make a notification on Apple Watch that will inform you about the break with the iPhone? It would seem that. You don’t need to add any additional components to the watch, just one message. But the most interesting thing is that my Mi Band 2 was so capable. Maybe Apple is not adding a chip due to problems with current legislation?

Author AppleInsider.ru Ivan Kuznetsov already told you about new Locator application and function Notify when forgotten.

How missing this feature is on the Apple Watch.

For example, if you have an iPad and leave it on public transport, Latitude will send a notification to your iPhone if the devices are linked to the same Apple ID. But the funny thing is that the trick does not work on the Apple Watch! Apple, what is it?

Apple Watch smart alarm

Let’s face it, most users don’t care about sleep statistics. The only thing that may interest them is the time spent in bed. There are no complaints about Apple here. Apple Watch counts time in bed masterfully. There is another problem – a smart alarm clock. Those who have used it at least once through the application are unlikely to give it up.

Apple says the following about this:

I won’t argue with Kevin Lynch, he still understands me better, but I’m not going to give up the smart alarm function. How does he work? You just put your phone next to the bed and allow the application to access the microphone. A smart alarm clock will automatically detect the phases of sleep and wake you up at the optimal time. But since Apple believes that such a chip is not required, for the pleasure in the form Sleepzy applications you have to pay.

Apple can’t, Sleepzy will help.

How to download a watch face on Apple Watch

I’m lying if I say that you cannot install third-party watch faces on your Apple Watch. There are still some ways. But all this is an optical illusion, for you will not find anything new here. It’s just that different applications allow you to customize the dial a little more than is available out of the box.

I miss the third-party watch faces on the Apple Watch, nothing less than good battery life.

Based on our recent reasoning, it becomes clear that Apple is cutting out the chip artificially. That is, in theory, it was possible to allow large companies to make their own watchface, as, for example, is implemented in the Nike version. You can even sell a Hermes dial for 20k. And people will buy, I assure you.

Apple Watch applications

Well, there are apps on Apple Watch, and there are a lot of them. We even compiled a separate selection for you for this case. The point here is a little different. How often do you use them? Whoever you ask, everyone says that you shouldn’t download anything here except a smart alarm clock. All why? Because the system is closed.

Tim, we need more customization!

Yes, applications can be added to Extensions, but is that enough? Imagine how cool it would be to have interactive watch faces that change based on the number of hours you spend studying a foreign language or playing sports at the Nike Run Club?
