Apple Watch offers new way to communicate, pay

Culture
Apple Watch, Apple Pay, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. I'm Bridget Carey, and in this CNet update, I have everything you need to know about Apple's new products in under three minutes. [MUSIC] Apple has created a new way to communicate, make payments, and interact with objects around us, with a brand-new product. The Apple Watch. To stand out in a sea of smart watches that are in the market now. The Apple Watch does more than just show you tweets and text messages. Although, yes, it does show typical notifications, including map directions. To navigate, you'll use a dial knob on the side. It has the health sensors that you expect to track your heartbeat. And you can even send your heartbeat to another watch to flirt. Or doodle and tap secret messages to your friends. But there's also this NFC chip that lets you pay wirelessly at the register with the tap of your wrist. You can also use this tech for other tricks like opening up the door to your hotel room at Starwood hotels and I'm sure app developers will program more uses for it. As for style, there are three versions including a sporty version and a gold model and it comes in a smaller size for those with smaller wrists. It will come out early next year, starting at $350, and yes it does require an iPhone to use. But let's go back to paying with the watch. Apple has introduced a new wireless payment system called Apple Pay. It means you can pay with your Apple watch or the new iPhone6 models by tapping the device to the register. You don't even need to take out your credit card. Apple says it has encrypted the data to keep your information secure and to add to your protection. You would pay while putting your fingerprint on that Touch ID sensor. Now, it'll first launch in the U.S. next month with American Express cards, MasterCard, and Visa. And it's also compatible with a majority of banks. Major retailers like Macy's, McDonald's, and Disney will soon accept Apple Pay in stores. You'll even be able to use it in the McDonald's drive-through. Just don't drop your phone out the window, please. And as for those new iPhones. Well, if you wanted a larger screen, Apple served up two. The iPhone 6 has a 4.7 inch screen, and the iPhone. 6 Plus has a 5.5 inch screen. Along with a sensor to use Apple Pay, it has a boost in speed with faster processors. And, the camera also has improvements, like being able to focus twice as fast. And, video is captured with more detail. Apple also squeezed in a little more battery juice. Although, if you're playing with your phone all day, measuring your workout with new sensors, and syncing it all into the Apple Watch. I'm not sure your battery's gonna last much longer. The iPhone 6 starts at $200. The iPhone 6 Plus starts at $300. Pre-orders begin Friday, September 12th. And it hits stores on September 19th. That's your quick Apple summary, but if you crave more, head to cnet.com. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey. [MUSIC]
