Apple revamps Watch with water resistance and built-in GPS

Tech Industry
[APPLAUSE] We call it Apple Watch Series 2 and it has been completely reengineered. And it starts with a feature that will change how you use Apple Watch. The first Apple Watch was splash proof. An Apple Watch series two is swim proof. [APPLAUSE] So you can wear it whether you're swimming or surfing or just doing that occasional cannonball You can keep it on. It's rated water resistant 50 meters which is the industry standard for a swim watch. What that means is the watch need to withstand the pressure the water pressure equivalent being in a depth of 50 meters. And that's pretty deep and the it's a especially challenging for a smart watch because there are so many ingress point So our Engineers have been hard at work developing new seals and adhesives. They've been able to close all those entry points except for one, the speaker. You see, a speaker needs air to produce sound and if the air can get in so can the water and that's the problem. So for Series 2, we redesigned the speaker system and at the end of your workout we use the speaker itself to eject the water. [APPLAUSE] We've added built-in GPS. [APPLAUSE] And with that watch, you can literally hit start and begin your workout. And during your workout, you'll get GPS accurate Pace and distance. And at the end of your workout, in the Activity app of your phone, there will be a route map, color coded to show your varying speeds. And developers can take advantage of the built-in GPS. And I'd like to give you an example of that. I'd like to invite to the stage Hannah Catmur Lead designer for viewranger. I'm here today to show you viewranger the first ever hiking app on the new Apple Watch. Which gives you the ability to enjoy a hike like you never have before. I put the popular Half Dome Cables on here. And at 14 miles it's probably a bit too intense this morning. So let's take a look at the Four Mile Trail to Glacier Point. This looks like it wont take me quite so long. And with that elevation gain it's sure to still be a great work out. So let's get going. [BLANK_AUDIO] Here I can see my directions. And I can also scroll through to see all of the exciting views and destinations I have coming up. At any time I can swipe right to check in on the map. I can see my current location and my route program. In fact, at any time if I stay too far from the path the range will let me know about it. It's really wasn't possible before. But now the Apple watch integrated GPS the range can look out to make sure I don't stay too far off road. That's D Ranger, the first ever hiking app, to take advantage of GPS on the new Apple Watch. And we're really excited for you guys to try on your next hike. Thank you. [APPLAUSE] [NOISE]
