Apple Watch Vs 10 Popular Smartwatch Brands

By Harish

Apple, true to all the rumors and speculations, has finally delivered its new Watch. Dubbed as iWatch in several rumors, the new Apple Watch will now take on the likes of Motorola Moto 360 and the LG G Watch R.

While the new iPhones have been the treat of the recently held Apple event, the arrival of the Apple Watch is no less exciting. And with a host of additions and adjustments, the new wearable from Apple still holds a major share of Apple overall accolades from the event.

As of now, Apple's revolutionary intelligent watch is real and will be available early next year at $349 or Rs. 20,940. Apple claims the watch is extremely customizable and perfectly apt for fitness junkies. The glass on the top uses tough sapphire glass, while the display is a flexible retina panel.

The Watch has a dial on the side that Apple calls the "digital crown". It basically enables you to perform on-screen actions without needing to pinch and zoom the touchscreen. The Apple watch uses the watch's classic dial to add more features, depending on your preferences.

Apple Watch features the Digital Crown, an innovative way to scroll, zoom and navigate fluidly, without obstructing the display. The Digital Crown also serves as the Home button and a convenient way to access Siri. This highly customized UI seems perfect for your wrist. Pressing the Digital Crown also gets you back to the home screen.
