GPS and Waterproofing both focus on the health and fitness tracking. Addition of GPS is necessary as the runners do not only need to know about mapping their route but also ponder over their pace as they go. You can now leave your iPhone behind on a ride as GPS is in watch only. It activates only when you start your workout. GPS Signal can be hard to maintain in some areas, for that the WiFi connection of watch invisibly pings wireless hotspots along the way. The watch can also plot your bike rides and walk in the city.
Coming to the waterproof feature, Apple Watch can now be used underwater without worrying about how water and chlorine would affect it. It would automatically track your lengths. The new series is resistant to the depth of 50 m. If you use the watch in water then it would require you to enter the pool before starting the workout app. You can end the session by simply twisting one of the bottons on the right side of the watch face. So it does all that.
Isn’t it exciting?
