  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:03:38 PM
    "In fact we've been flooded by emails."

    (quoting a user email now)
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2015 5:03:44 PM
    Apple Watch: seems like most people I speak to use it for fitness first.

    "Now despite just launching the watch a few months ago, we are on an incredible pace of innovation. To tell you about where we're going next, I'd like to invite Jeff Williams to the stage."
  • James Martin 9/9/2015 5:04:35 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2015 5:04:36 PM
    Jeff Williams will detail the Apple Watch changes.

    Wiliams says: "There are new watch faces like this beautiful one with time transit and third party complications. This is a big deal. It's a really powerful thing to be able to glance at your wrist and see the information important to you."
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:05:33 PM
    "You can see more like the latest news or your flight departure. And time travel to fuse ahead."
  • James Martin 9/9/2015 5:05:42 PM

    "We're adding transit to Maps to make it easier to find and use public transportation."
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2015 5:05:44 PM
    3rd party complications will knit in info beyond the set details on Apple Watch now: flight departures, tweets, etc. And Digital Crown will go back and forth in time to see schedules (Time Travel).

    This is recap: we knew this about WatchOS 2.

    "Now in addition to these and other built-in features, developers have been hard at work. There are already 10,000 Watch apps in the app store."
  • James Martin 9/9/2015 5:06:11 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:06:22 PM
    That's HUGE. Android Wear has about 4,000. Samsung Gear has about 3,000. New Samsung round watch will launch with about 1,000.
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2015 5:06:22 PM
    10,000 watch apps is a lot. But now, native apps will arrive: can display video, access hardware, use mikes or speakers, sensors.

    "And GoPro. The app turns your watch into a viewfinder. No matter where your camera is mounted, you'll always know where it's pointed."
  • James Martin 9/9/2015 5:07:04 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2015 5:07:18 PM
    Facebook Messenger on the watch. iTranslate, too (90 languages). and GoPro, a remote app viewfinder.
