Apple's watch is turning out to be a big success for the company as the Watch is out for sale. Many users have stated that Apple's smartwatch is the best smartwatch, as its features outsmart the Moto 360.

MagSafe charger can power up othe devices:
Moto 360 is another smartwatch which uses Qi wireless charging standards along with the Apple Watch. Since both of them uses the same technology, an Apple insider reader, Albert lee tried to charge his Moto 360 and it worked.
Qi, the most popular among mobile makers, is just one of three wireless charging standards that's trying to dominate the gadget world.
No random Qi charger can be used for Apple watch charging:
In the case of Apple's watch the reverse scenario is not possible, where any random Qi charger can be used to power up the device.
An update brought support for a different, and much more flexible type of charging called resonance charging, which can send power from a farther distance. It's possible the Apple Watch may eventually work with newer Qi products.
Apple's Wireless Charging Revolution:
By introducting Apple watch to the family, wireless charging might find its way to all Apple devices soon. Even though wireless charging existed before Apple's watch but, Apple must be thinking of getting the next macbook or even the iphone a wireless charging tech upgrade.
The Watch Could Have measured Your Blood Oxygen Level:
After opening up the Apple Watch many tech geeks have found that the heart rate monitor could actually measure the level of Oxygen in your blood, than just count your heart beats. The approach, known to doctors as pulse oximetry, helps them ensure patients have adequate oxygen levels during surgery.
Apple stayed mum about this sensor due to federal regulations. Measuring oxygen levels in the blood skirts the line between quantified fitness and health, and the U.S. Food & Drug Administration can be rather particular when it comes to approving health equipment.
Parts are easy to replace:
