Differences from previous models
With each generation of Apple Watch is improved in a serious way. If the first models were just beautiful fitness bracelets, Watch 7 can replace a mobile phone, keys, and even a video surveillance center. The models are credited with four features.
1. Rejection of the Taptic Engine sensor, which is responsible for reading different pressing forces
In AW7, the Cupertinos will completely abandon the physical drive of the Taptik Engine, which responds to the force of pressing. Instead, a new technology will appear.
2. Additional batteries for eternal charge
A registered Apple patent suggests that Apple’s straps may contain additional batteries to power the watch. Then this will be another reason for users to use official accessories, and not buy Chinese replacements on well-known marketplaces.
3. Full integration with smart home
When one of the smart-home devices is activated, the Apple Watch will respond. The user will be able to perform any action, up to turning on the kettle through the Apple Watch screen.
4. The watch becomes the real center of video surveillance
They can be used to check home surveillance cameras. Whatever the shooting format is — simple black and white 3:4 or trendy color 16:9. Bidirectional audio is also supported. If the hidden camera also supports this function, you can scare intruders with a scream from the video surveillance system.
