While that is just a rendering of the Apple Watch, not an image of an actual Apple Watch, the band is a Modern Buckle, which is only available for 38mm Apple Watches. So the Watch in the rendering is definitely a 38mm.

No there is no way to accomplish this. From Apple - Apple Watch You close the Exercise ring when you reach the globally recommended 30 minutes of exercise per day. And you don’t even have to do it all at once, which means you’re more likely to fit it into your day. From all searches I have performed I have not found any possible way to change it and the ...

I had the same problem: In settings I was definitely logged into iCloud, but the Apple Watch unlock setting still claimed I wasn't. I stumbled on the following weird solution: I happened to start FaceTime on Mac, and noticed that I wasn't logged into it. I logged in. When I then opened the Security settings again, the Allow your Apple Watch to unlock your ...

To gild refined gold, to paint the lily, To throw a perfume on the violet, To smooth the ice, or add another hue Unto the rainbow, or with taper-light To seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish, Is wasteful and ridiculous excess. Wm. Shakespeare.

In addition to the aluminium vs stainless steel case, The Apple Watch has a Sapphire crystal cover as opposed to the Apple Watch Sport's "Ion-X Glass" cover. In addition, there are more options for bands that can be used with Apple Watch. Specifically, while the Apple Watch Sport is sold just with the Sport band, the Apple Watch is available with the Sport ...

The temperature shown does come from the Weather App. Small bits of data on the watch face are known as complications. Tapping the temperature on the watch face will open the Weather app thus revealing the source of the data. The watch gets the data from your iPhone which, in turn, uses location and data from the Internet. You may find more useful ...

You can bring your Apple Watch back to normal functioning mode by pressing and holding the side button, the same way that you do when you wish to power it on. This command will only work if you plugged the Watch in, or if there is sufficient battery juice available.

On every page about the Apple Watch, it's stated at the bottom of the page that Apple Watch : Requires iPhone 5 or later. This means no iPod touch.

It uses both Bluetooth LE 4.0 AND 802.11ac WiFi. Bluetooth is used to discover the Apple Watch and establish a connection. Then it uses WiFi to do "time-in-flight" calculations - i.e. to figure out how far your watch is from the Mac. The Mac needs to support 802.11ac WiFi for this to work. All watches are supported, both the old and the new - even though ...

According to a few 2018 articles, the restrictions are based on the region where the watch was sold, and the removal of blocks is implemented by a watchOS update. Not tied to ID. No geo-fence. There was speculation that changing the watch's region settings could bypass the restriction, but those articles correct that understanding. Given these facts, ...

No, there is no such functionality on Apple Watch as standard as there are no text fields for entering text other than dictation.

From Apple's website: "Apple Watch works with iPhone 5 or later running the latest version of iOS, which introduces the Apple Watch app. So make sure everything is up to date" Note: While it does say "Requires iPhone 5 or later." in the footnotes at the very bottom of the http://www.apple.com/watch/technology/ mentioned by Matthieu Riegler, nonetheless it's ...

You can delete the stocks app from your phone on iOS 10 - and that removes it from the watch. There isn't a way to have it on the phone but not on the watch. There were currently no workarounds, jailbreaks or non-obvious ways hide and minimize the stocks app on the Apple Watch apps display on iOS 9 and associated watch OS. The rest of this answer applies if ...

Actually I was having the same problem and discovered why. In the News app itself there are some notification settings. Why it's so obscure and hard to find is unlike Apple, but it's there all the same. Go to the News app and tap on the Favorites tab. At the very top you'll see three things: a bell gliph, a Favorites option (for sorting), and an Edit button....

According to a support article from Apple the Apple Watch Series 2 has a Bluetooth 4.0 chip. So common bluetooth headphones should also work with the Watch.

The Activity app uses the info stored in the Health app. To change your weight: Open the Watch app on the iPhone On the My Watch tab, scroll down and tap on Health Tap Edit in the top right corner Scroll through the weights and select the correct one You can also do this on the iPhone in the Health app under Body Measurements. Once that is done, Activity ...

There's currently no native way to play a chime on the hour with watchOS - well, at least not without workarounds using the Timer, Reminders, etc. However, there are a number of 3rd party Apple Watch apps available that provide this functionality. Below are just a few: Little Ben Cuckoo Watch Diii

From the "Apple Watch User Guide" Apple Watch uses Bluetooth® wireless technology to connect to its paired iPhone and uses the iPhone for many wireless functions. Apple Watch can’t configure new Wi-Fi networks on its own, but it can connect to Wi-Fi networks you’ve set up on the paired iPhone. If your Apple Watch and iPhone are on the same network ...

Is it possible to paint your watch gold? yes. Is it a smart thing to do? questionable. If you are good at spray painting you could do this. It is possible that if your spray too much in the right spot, like around buttons, it could leak into the watch. I would not suggest it because if you have issues with your watch it will void the warranty on your ...

As far as I can tell its just means as long as it's connected via bluetooth and in range. There isn't a Touch ID scanner on the watch or anything like that so I don't think that it forms an knid of "signature" to you.

It’s unlikely even the Apple Watch series 6 is trying to differentiate one human wrist from another. resting heart rate, ECG traces, walking gait analysis from the accelerometer, blood oxygen levels and pulse profiles, recovery heart rate and calculated VO2 max calculations all might be very personal and tell which wrist a watch is on, but I see no reason ...

Airplane mode on Apple Watch, by default, mirrors the setting on your iPhone. When you disable Airplane mode on your iPhone, it can not be mirrored to Apple Watch, because the radios on the watch are turned off. You need to disable Airplane mode on Apple Watch manually by using the interface on the Apple Watch. You can disable the automatic mirroring of ...

Yes it can. Only exercise uses heart rate currently to gauge effort. I know of several people that figured out how to game the stand goal while flying in an airplane by just moving one forearm. The accelerometer algorithm for standing can't really tell why your hand moves when it is checking for sedentary conditions. This is probably a known issue since ...

Correct, with watchOS 3.x it was possible to use Apple Watch as a kind of remote for iPhone's Music.app: Browse all available music by artist/album/genre Start/stop playback on your iPhone with Apple Watch Change the music source from iPhone's storage to Apple Watch's storage Answer Unfortunately, starting with watchOS 4, you can't browse music on your ...

It's taking your heart rate. Per Apple: "Blood is red because it reflects red light and absorbs green light. Apple Watch uses green LED lights paired with light‑sensitive photodiodes to detect the amount of blood flowing through your wrist at any given moment. When your heart beats, the blood flow in your wrist - and the green light absorption - is ...

The ECG function requires approval from the relevant regulators in the region, which takes time to acquire. In the US, Apple worked with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a number of years to receive De Novo classification for the ECG app and the irregular heart rhythm notification, making the features available over the counter. The ECG app and ...

I would expect the opposite mechanism that what your title says - empirical evidence shows ECG is disabled everywhere by default and only enabled where cleared. This is also observed for COVID-19 location tracking. It’s baked in to iOS but enabled selectively by Apple in specific regions. For example, warchOS 7.3 expands ECG in Japan, Mayotte, Philippines, ...

There is a PAM module for this on GitHub: https://github.com/biscuitehh/pam-watchid (This is forked from a TouchID PAM module, btw.)

You aren't limited to one time around the ring in the Activity app. You get a double arrow for 1 hour of exercise, for example. You also receive awards for doubling or tripling the exercise ring. You can use the Workout app to set whatever exercise goal you like. And you get a custom ring to fill in that app, based on target calories, distance, or time.
