Known Apple Watch features
Apple Watch has some features we already known. Glances allows you to see only the most important information via a swipe upward on the clock.
Thus, users will have access to music, e- mail or weather without entering the menu.
Also, a known function is the announcement when the user receives a call or an email. Thus, those who wear the watch will not feel a vibration at the wrist, but simply a short beat.
Like other smart watches, the Workout application will provide fitness advises and we will monitor our activity.

Apple Watch will soon be launched on the market, and Apple has dedicated a special event to the gadget that promises to be the one that will increase the smart watches market.
The clock was first introduced last fall with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. In recent months, the US company has developed the software part and we expect at 100,000 applications or more for the watch.
