To get to your apps, just press the Digital Crown. The Home screen looks familiar, but it’s a new experience designed for the Apple Watch display.

Dictate a message, check your calendar, find the nearest coffee shop, and more. Siri is at your service.

Speaking at the launch, Tim Cook, CEO, Apple said, “Apple Watch is the most personal device we’ve ever created.”

The Workout app shows real-time stats such as calories, time, distance, and pace for your workouts. One can  set goals, chart your progress, and earn awards as you track specific workouts, such as running, walking, and cycling.

Apple Watch uses the GPS and Wi-Fi in your iPhone to help track your distance. It has a custom sensor which measures intensity by tracking one’s heart rate. It has an accelerometer to measure body movement. Apple Watch is an all-day fitness tracker and a highly advanced sports watch in a single device.
