Apple Watch 2 Is Rumored To Bring In GPS And Swim Tracking Functions


Apple Watch’s successor, dubbed Apple Watch 2 has been rumored to come with two features that are going to be completely new to the wearable family from Apple.

Apple Watch 2 Rumored To Come With GPS And Swim Tracking Functions – You Will Not Need To Connect Your iPhone To Taken Advantage Of These Features

For the most part, Apple Watch has to be connected to your iPhone in order for it to gain a vast slew of notifications. However, with the GPS and swim tracking function, you will not have to keep your smartphone pocketed because both features are going to come embedded into the upcoming wearable.  On added advantage of owning an improved iteration of the device is its improved battery life. Apple has been reported time and time again of transitioning from the traditional LCD display to OLED for its obvious advantages such as better efficiency.

Additionally, Apple is most likely going to partner with the likes of Samsung and LG to mass produce the company’s OLED screens in order to enter a better negotiation deal for acquiring an abounding number of OLED displays. Now, it appears that a variant of this particular display technology is going to be ported to the Apple Watch successor.

One of the biggest gripes of owning an Apple Watch was its battery life and minuscule amount of storage, and as its successor is going to be rolled out, we expect that future software updates, a larger cell, and more storage will obviously contribute to a better experience. We expect that Force Touch is going to be retained, along with the form factor of the wearable, which is currently available in the 38mm and 42mm versions.

There is also a chance that Apple Watch 2 could feature a cellular modem but we are going to remove this from the rumor equation because it would mean that majority of the consumers would see no reason to purchase an iPhone, irrespective of the larger screen size that you get in return. For the time being, Apple has probably intended its Apple Watch 2 to be an extension of your iPhone so a cellular feature is definitely out of the cards.

In order to add more appeal to the wearable, Apple has also been reported to partner with companies like Hermes to bring custom watch bands in the foreseeable future. What other features do you feel are going to be a part of the upcoming wearable? Let us know your thoughts immediately.
