Apple Watch is taking advantage of its inaugural WWDC 2023 conference to lift the veil on WatchOS 10, its operating system for connected watches.
WWDC 2023 was an opportunity for Apple to unveil some new features of WatchOS 10. The platform dedicated to the Apple Watch is also evolving deeply for athletes, with an emphasis on new practical features for everyday life.
A new way to use Apple Watch
The biggest innovation is in the practical aspects. All major Apple apps have been redesigned. But that’s not all: Apple has thought of a new way to navigate between applications and display more useful information.
The Machine learning makes its appearance (Already on iPhone since 2020), to show the user the most needed information at the right time. Thus, the information displayed on the screen of the Apple Watch varies throughout the day depending on the habits of the owner of the watch. The name of this feature is: Smart Stack.
Of course, new dials appear, most notably the arrival of Snoopy on the Apple Watch and a palette dial that boasts colors. The app’s redesign also enables support for new features like group calls via FaceTime audio.
Athletes are not forgotten
For the players, many new features are emerging. We can quote A brand new app for cyclistsThanks to the support of Bluetooth sensors, it is possible to measure both speed and speed, but also power.
The iPhone can also be used as a screen for cyclists to display information about the current race (average speed, elevation, distance, heart rate, etc.). The Apple Watch can estimate a cyclist’s famous FTP index (a type of stress test) to estimate his size.
With the redesign of the compass dial, hikers haven’t been forgotten either. It now displays the landscape in 3D and becomes more intelligent. It shows the last known location with cellular service and the last known location from which a satellite call can be made. Simple features, but very useful in high mountains.
Golfers will be pleased to know that WatchOS is now accurate enough to measure swing movement. Which should improve it.
Finally, mental health is not forgotten, a brand new app that lets you take care of yourself.
WatchOS 10 will be available later this year and will be compatible with all Apple Watches from the Apple Watch Series 4 onwards.
