The smaller size at launch was 38 mm 1. Starting with Series 4, the two nominal sizes changed to 40 mm 1. The overall shape and width of the watch has not changed significantly since its release, so customizable bands and accessories are typically compatible with any Apple Watch of the same size class.
Bands that fit the smaller size class 38 mm 1. For input, the Watch features a "digital crown " on one side which can be turned to scroll or zoom content on screen, and pressed to return to the home screen. Next to the crown on the same side of the watch is the Side Button, which can be used to display recently used apps and access Apple Pay , which is used for contactless payment.
Additional sensors integrated into the Watch include an accelerometer, gyroscope, and barometer, which are used to determine device orientation, user movement, and altitude. Because blood absorbs green light and reflects red light, the amounts of each type of reflected light are compared to determine heart rate. The Watch adjusts the sampling rate and LED brightness as needed. Apple rates the device's battery for 18 hours of mixed usage.
The watch then reverts to its original mode when recharged or after holding down the side button. Apple Watch comes with an included band strap to attach it to the user's wrist. The band can be easily changed to other types by holding down the connectors on the bottom of the watch and sliding the band pieces out.
Third party bands are compatible with Apple Watch, however Apple produces bands in a variety of materials and colours. Bands designed for the original Series 38 mm and 42 mm case sizes are compatible with the Series 40 mm and 44 mm cases, as well as the Series 7 41 mm and 45 mm cases, respectively. Starting with Apple Watch Series 5, Apple introduced the online Apple Watch Studio which allows customers to mix and match bands on purchase, eliminating the need to purchase a specific combination of case and band design, and allows for a simplification of packaging since Apple Watch Series 4 in The 1st generation Apple Watch colloquially referred to as Series 0 uses the single-core S1 system-on-chip.
It does not have a built-in GPS chip, instead relying on a paired iPhone for location services. It features a new linear actuator hardware from Apple called the "Taptic Engine", providing realistic haptic feedback when an alert or a notification is received, and is used for other purposes by certain apps.
All versions of the first-generation Apple Watch have 8 GB of storage; the operating system allows the user to store up to 2 GB of music and 75 MB of photos. When the Apple Watch is paired with an iPhone, all music on that iPhone is also available to be controlled and accessed from the Apple Watch.
It has a lower starting price than first generation. The Series 2 has the dual-core Apple S2 processor, water resistance to 50 meters, a display twice as bright, at nits , and a GPS receiver. Siri is able to speak though the onboard speaker on Apple Watch Series 3 due to the increased processing speed of the Watch.
Series 3 features LTE cellular connectivity for the first time in an Apple Watch, enabling users to make phone calls, iMessage and stream Apple Music and Podcasts directly on the watch, independent of an iPhone. The Apple Watch Series 4  is the first predominant redesign of the Apple Watch, featuring larger displays with thinner bezels and rounded corners, and a slightly rounder, thinner chassis with a redesigned ceramic back.
Internally there is a new S4 bit dual-core processor, capable of up to double the S3's performance, upgraded 16 GB storage, and a new electrical heart sensor. The microphone was moved to the opposite side between the side button and the digital crown to improve call quality.
Other changes include the digital crown incorporating haptic feedback with the Apple Haptic Engine and includes the new Apple-designed W3 wireless chip. The watch received mostly positive reviews from critics. TechRadar gave it a score of 4. The Apple Watch Series 5 was announced on September 10, Additional new features include International Emergency Calling, enabling emergency calls in over countries, a more energy-efficient S5 processor,  improved ambient light sensor, and storage doubled to 32 GB.
The release of the Series 5 also brought back the "Edition" model, with a ceramic model absent from the previous generation. A new titanium model was also included in two colors: natural and Space Black. The Series 5 and above including the SE model introduced in also incorporate enhanced hardware- and software-based battery and performance management functionality.
Critics generally gave it a positive review. Its principal improvement over its predecessor is the inclusion of a sensor to monitor blood oxygen saturation. Following Apple's announcement of the Series 7, an independent software development company filed a lawsuit against Apple alleging inappropriate copying of the software keyboard functionality from an app that Apple had previously rejected from its App Store.
Apple Watch runs watchOS , whose interface is based around a home screen with circular app icons, which can be changed to a list view in the devices settings. The OS can be navigated using the touchscreen or the crown on the side of the watch. The Apple Watch is capable of receiving notifications, messages, and phone calls via a paired iPhone.
Users are able to keep apps running in memory as well as receive background updates and refreshed information. Other updates include a new Dock invoked with the side button to replace the performance-laden Glances, an updated Control Center, and new reply options on Messages. Several new watch faces have also been added, including Minnie Mouse , along with the ability to switch watch faces from the lock screen simply by swiping.
A new feature called SOS allows users to hold the dock button to make a call to the local emergency line and pull up the user's Medical ID. Another feature is Activity Sharing, which allows sharing of workouts with friends and even sending their heartbeats to one another. A new app called Breathe guides users through breathing exercises throughout the day, with visuals and haptic feedback. It was made available to the public in September WatchOS 4.
WatchOS 4 features a proactive Siri watch face, personalized activity coaching, and an entirely redesigned music app. It also introduces Apple GymKit , a technology platform to connect workouts with cardio equipment. It introduced support for Nightstand mode in portrait orientation.
It brought back the ability for music playing on the iPhone to be controlled using the Music app on the Apple Watch and also enabled control of playback and volume on Apple's HomePod. Other new features included a new charging animation and a new app loading animation. Activity data was added to the Siri watch face, and the battery complication more accurately reports battery life. It introduced an instant watch-to-watch walkie-talkie mode, all-new Podcasts app, raise-wrist-to-speak Siri, customizable Control Center, and the ability to access the notification center and control center from apps.
Other features included support for WebKit to view web pages, six new watch faces, and new workout running features. It introduced more native iOS apps such as voice memos, calculator, and a native watchOS app store. Other features include Siri being able to tell users what music they are listening to, activity trends, and a new UI framework for developers. In watchOS 1, third-party WatchKit applications run in the background on the iPhone as an application extension while a set of native user interface resources are installed on Apple Watch.
This was assisted by the introduction of a separate App Store on the Apple Watch itself. Apple Watch Series 1 models were previously only available with aluminum cases and sport bands. As of Series 3, each Apple Watch model in aluminum, the least expensive casing, is available either with or without LTE cellular connectivity , while the models with the other casing materials available stainless steel and sometimes ceramic and titanium always include it.
Each model through Series 3 comes in a or millimeter body, with the larger size having a slightly larger screen and battery. The Series 7 has been updated to and millimeter models. Each model has various color and band options. Featured Apple-made bands include colored sport bands, sport loop, woven nylon band, classic buckle, modern buckle, leather loop, Milanese loop, and a link bracelet.
LTE : 36 kg CO 2 e . LTE: 39 kg CO 2 e . Following the announcement, initial impressions from technology and watch industry observers were varied; the watch was praised by some for its "design, potential capabilities and eventual usefulness",  while others offered criticism of these same aspects.
Initial reviews for the device have been generally positive with some caveats. Many reviewers described the watch as functional and convenient, while also noting failure to offer as much potential functionality as preceding smartphones. Farhad Manjoo of The New York Times mentioned the device's steep learning curve, stating it took him "three long, often confusing and frustrating days" to become accustomed to watchOS 1, but loved it thereafter.
He concluded that there is no "killer application" so far besides telling the time, which is the basic function of a wristwatch anyhow. When using the Apple Watch, some users have reported issues using the heart monitoring feature due to permanent skin conditions including tattoos.
Some users have complained that the logo and text on the back of the Apple Watch Sport model, primarily the space gray version,  can be easily worn off. Financial analysts offered early sales estimates from a few million to as many as 5 million in the first year.
Owing to the inadequacy of materials, the Apple Watch's delivery was delayed from its initial pre-order release date of April 10, Apple has not disclosed any sales figures for the Apple Watch. In December , Dr. Joseph Wiesel, a New York University cardiologist, sued Apple over allegations that the Apple Watch violates a patented method for detecting atrial fibrillation. Wiesel claimed he had shared details of the patent with Apple in September , but the company refused to negotiate.
