Discover the Apple Watch laboratory where its health and fitness functions were developed
The Apple Watch is capable of adapting its measurement to different extreme weather environments
One of the great functions of the Apple Watch is undoubtedly its potential to be able to become a perfect doll personal trainer. Through its native Workout and Activity applications we can keep an exhaustive control of our daily activity and mark the challenges we want to achieve depending on the type of training we do. How have these characteristics been developed? Now Apple shows us by inviting us to its test lab.
A few days ago we were able to see Jay blahnik, a former Nike engineer who led the development of the health and fitness functions of the Apple Watch, talk about the difficult challenge of creating the device, especially making it reliable and useful at the same time in their role in monitoring our physical activity.
Now, Apple has allowed ABC News to enter the physical testing laboratory in which a good part of those characteristics were developed. The video has been removed from YouTube recently, but you can still view the report from the following link. In it we can see Jeff Williams explaining the large number of Apple employees who volunteered for the different physical tests carried out, although none of them knew before September that they were for the Apple Watch.
The activities ranged from rowing to running to yoga. In addition, Blahnik himself explains that they have climatic chambers to simulate different types of environments in which an Apple Watch user can be found while doing their activity. These tests would also have taken place on the ground, with Dubai or Alaska being some of the climatic environments on which the effectiveness of the Apple Watch would have been tested.
The heart rate sensor of the Apple Watch measures the level of intensity in the performance of the exercise
Each Apple Watch model has a heart rate sensor that is capable of measuring the level of effort we make in each activity, so it will not only be necessary to stay active, but to do it with enough intensity to be effective. . As you already know, The Apple Watch will arrive in 9 countries on April 24, but it can be reserved and tried in the different Apple Stores in those countries from April 10.
What do you think of the Apple Watch test lab? Do you think it will have much more accurate results than the rest of the smartwatch?
