Yes, it's a watch. But unlike any you've ever imagined.
Because Apple Watch sits on your wrist, it can give you a gentle tap the instant you receive an alert. So you can get the same notifications you do on your iPhone--or just the ones you care about most--more immediately and conveniently. By gently tapping you, Apple Watch adds a physical dimension to notifications. You can also choose to receive subtle audio cues from the built-in speaker. When you get a message, raise your wrist to see who it's from. Keep it raised to see the whole message.
You won't just send and receive messages, calls and mail more easily and efficiently. You'll express yourself in unique, fun, and more personal ways. Communicating with Apple Watch is discreet, sophisticated, and nuanced--a whole new way to connect with others.
You don't always have time to craft a lengthy response to a message or email. With Apple Watch, you have lots of options for making a quick but meaningful reply. You can even tap to send short, preset phrases based on the context of your message and how you respond to most often.
Apple Watch is ideal for quick responses, but sometimes you want to say or do more. So we made it easy to switch seamlessly from your Apple Watch to your iPhone. Just swipe up on the corresponding icon on the lower left of your iPhone Lock Screen, and pick up where you left off.
In addition to recognizing touch, Apple Watch senses force, adding a new dimension to the user interface. With Force Touch, pressing firmly on the display brings up additional controls in apps such a Messages, Music, and Calendar. It also lets you do things like select different watch faces, pause or end a workout, and search for an address in Maps.
The linear actuator inside Apple watch taps you on the wrist when you receive a notification, press down on the display, or use Digital Touch. The Taptic Engine gives different kinds of notifications and actions their own distinct character. So even with the accompanying audio cues turned off, you can feel the difference between an alarm and an incoming phone call without even looking.
