Apple Watch

Well, here it is. After much speculation, Apple’s wearable. Calling it a watch is kind of a misnomer as it does more than tell time. Tim Cook even called it “a health and fitness” device on stage. It also has Siri built in so you can send messages. A crazy touch screen that basically has two clicking options. From The Verge:

The Apple Watch has a built-in gyroscope, accelerometer, a heart rate sensor, and a Taptic Engine for input sensing. The Apple Watch can recognize the difference between a tap and a press, offering another subtle way to make different inputs without needing additional input points or buttons. Calling the harder press Force Touch, Apple is essentially defining the smartwatch equivalent of the right-click on a mouse. The Apple Watch also uses inductive wireless charging.

The biggest battery saving thing is that the watch turns on the display when you raise your wrist. No talk of battery life yet, but they did talk price: it’s going to be $349 and will go on sale, early next year

Me being a uni maths student I started working how to prove this… 

And only NOW have I noticed the pun… (I was wondering why people were reflagging a geometry question)…
