This definitely fit into the category of “one last thing…” that Apple historically concluded its keynote speeches with, but it might be worth the hype and anticipation.
On Tuesday, Apple announced its long-awaited Apple Watch, a device that the company said will define the emerging wearable devices market.
Per AppleInsider, the device uses a “digital crown”, a physical dial that rests on the right side of the device. Using this, users can interact with the device without a need to touch the screen, which would obscure it.
The crown button also acts as the home button, and can be pressed to return a user to the main screen. A button located below the crown allows users to quickly access contacts.
The face is also an input, with unique “tap” and “force press” gestures enabled by special electrodes capable of sensing pressure.
