why the apple watch is always set to 10:09 in its marketing

A fun morning tidbit for you: Some old-school watch history.The other day, I was looking up some promotional Apple Watch photos and the watch faces caught my eye. Since the very first Apple Watch, the company has always had its default watch faces display 10:09 as the time — and I had no idea why.So I turned to Google. Unsurprisingly, what I found was actually pretty interesting: 10:09 isn't an Easter egg release date or an Apple in-joke; it's actually a long-held tradition in mechanical watch marketing. Engadget had a pretty great deep dive on this a few years ago:The reason behind this practice boils down to marketing, with just a dash of consumer psychology to boot.Because a watch company's name and/or logo often resides directly underneath the 12, positioning the hands at 10 and 2 ensu

how to download and install watchos 3.2 on your apple watch

watchOS 3 with Breath, SOS, Home, and oh so much more is out and here's how to download and install it!Update March 27, 2017: Apple has just released watchOS 3.2 with Theater Mode, Siri improvements, and support for new languages in Scribble. You can update to watchOS 3.2 using the same procedures as previous updates.

Yeah... here's we go!Update your iPhone to iOS 10 or later.Connect your iPhone to Wi

here's why future apple watches should ship without a band

On Tuesday, Apple celebrated the arrival of spring by unveiling 19 new Apple Watch bands. At the same time, it limited the band options that come with new Apple Watch purchases.Effective immediately, the Apple Watch Series 2 no longer ships with leather, woven nylon, and metal link bracelets. Instead, buyers are stuck with either a Sport Band or Milanese Loop. You can still buy an Apple Watch with leather — if you select one from the more expensive Hermès collection.There’s been no official word on why Apple made this change. It could have been based on what sells or simply as a way to get customers to spend more on extra bands. It’s also possible this was a seasonal change only. After all, you’re gonna want to use a swim-ready band with your waterproof Apple Watch, no?Whatever the reason,

comment: sleep tracking with apple watch is still an unsolved problem

A common Apple Watch question people ask me is when will Apple add built-in sleep tracking capabilities. My answer is always ‘soon I hope’, and watchOS 4 seems like the next opportunity to introduce it. But there are already third-party apps that let you try it now. The problem for me is finding the right time to recharge my Apple Watch when I wear it overnight.Sony A6500My normal Apple Watch routine usually consists of waking up between 5 and 7 am and putting it on immediately for all-day fitness tracking, at least a 30-minute workout at some point every day, and dropping it on the charger just before bed around 9 and 11 pm. Apple Watch Series 2 running the latest watchOS version usually gets me to around 50% battery life by the end of the day.Third-party apps including AutoSleep ($2.99)

comment: apple watch series 3 could solve these problems with a cellular option

The challenges and benefits of a cellular Apple Watch is something I’ve considered throughout different pieces before, but I haven’t always been sure one actually needs to exist yet. I’ve continued thinking about this possibility, however, and now a cellular option is at the top of my wish list for the Apple Watch Series 3. A cellular option could solve specific problems that the faster, GPS-equipped Apple Watch Series 2 hasn’t resolved.Sony A6500At a high level, a cellular option for Apple Watch offers two things: greater independence from iPhone and less redundancy for features. Cellular connectivity is the main reason you need an iPhone to make Apple Watch stay connected away from Wi-Fi. Some tasks that are convenient on Apple Watch can be done on the iPhone that’s required to use it to

how to watch live tv on your apple tv without cable

You can watch broadcast television on your Apple TV without needing a cable subscription with HDHomeRun.Being a cord cutter (actually, I've never had cable, so I haven't technically cut any cords), I'm always on the hunt for new ways to keep myself entertained. On Apple TV, I use a handful of apps that, either I subscribe to a streaming service for (like Hulu and Netflix), or offer a free streaming TV feature that doesn't require a cable subscription (like PBS and The CW).There is also this thing called broadcast television, which anyone can watch as long as they have a TV that supports digital television (or a digital conversion box) and an over-the-air (OTA) HDTV antenna. The thing about broadcast television is that I can't watch it on Apple TV. I have to switch my TV input over, and the

how to use siri on your apple watch

Siri is Apple's virtual personal assistant. With the Apple Watch, it's available right from your wrist.Updated March 2017: Added Siri updates for watchOS 3.2.Siri uses your voice to activate and answer queries. As such, it doesn't require a keyboard or a ton of screen space. And because it's contextually aware, it can handle complex questions and commands. That makes it ideal for something like the Apple Watch, where it can often work faster and more conveniently than any other input method.How to set up Siri on Apple WatchSiri on Apple Watch is intrinsically tied to your iPhone: If you've ever turned Siri on for your iPhone, it'll automatically be activated on your Apple Watch. If you need to enable Siri, however, here's how to do it.Open the Settings app on your iPhone.Go to the Siri set

apple watch ceramic edition review

Gone are golds yellow and rose and in their place Apple Watch has a whole new Edition — Ceramic White.The original Apple Watch Edition launched in 2015, was crafted out of yellow or rose gold, and cost $10K and up. It was for people who stay in 6-star hotels, fly in cabins, wear couture—maybe only once—and would certainly buy something as trendy as an Apple Watch but only if it came in gold. It was also for the fashion and watch worlds, a substance to get attention beyond the silicon.I had several opportunities to see it at and around Apple events and it was legit gorgeous. But a market used to affordable luxury doesn't like even the idea of luxury they can't afford: While the original Edition generated attention, it also generated more than a little resentment.So, in late 2016, Apple repl

maybe apple should consider selling apple watch cases and bands separately

Who needs a pared-down Apple Watch collection when you could order each part separately?I'm going to preface this with a simple statement: Inventory management is hard. Once the undisputed king of operations and channel inventory, Apple has had its ups and downs over the last few years when it comes to shipping products on time — and the Apple Watch, arguably, kicked off that trend.The "Series 0" Apple Watch launched with multiple casing sizes, band combinations, and casing materials, leading to dozens of individual SKUs that a customer could order. And those SKUs took their toll on Apple's operations department: It took months to ship all the watch pre-orders, in part due to random Italian leather shortages and the difficulty in anodizing "space black" steel.

Thus, it's no surprise to s

how to get the nike apple watch band look without buying the watch

I’ve been using this band for the better part of a few weeks now and I absolutely love it. Its striking design is interesting, to say the least, but where it really shines is when you actually work out. I didn’t think much of it at the time, but the holes in this band really make a big difference, especially if you’re someone who develops sweat or moisture around your wrist area while you’re burning calories.I grabbed this particular band for under $20, which is less than half the price of a typical Sport band from Apple. Keep in mind, that as of now you can’t even buy this band from Apple. You only get it if you buy a Nike Apple Watch, which starts at $369 for the 38mm and goes up to $399 for the 42mm.Where it really shines is when you actually work out.When it comes to quality, this band

what we know about the 2017 wearable

Things have mostly been quiet on the “Apple Watch Series 3” front so far this year with most of the attention having been centered on the “iPhone 8.”The Apple Watch Series 3 rumors we’ve heard suggest Cupertino plans on sticking with a similar design for the next Apple Watch. Instead of using a touch-on-lens screen, however, the Series 3 could offer a glass-film touchscreen.As Brent Dirks noted in February:TPK Holdings has supplied the touchscreens for the watch since the device hit the market in 2015. Starting with Series 2, Apple moved to touch-on-lens technology. But because of poor yield rates, the company is apparently bowing out for the next watch model.In its place, Apple will reportedly rely on a glass-film solution from either General Interface Solution or Biel Crystal Manufactory

pokemon yellow runs on apple watch thanks to gbc emulator

The Pokemon fever has hit the Apple Watch. Well, sort of. We’ve seen all sorts of crazy, and admittedly useless, antics done on Android Wear smartwatches but not so much on the Apple Watch. Well, the Apple Watch does have some “hacks”, and sometimes for things that matter the most. Like, for example, being able to play Pokemon Yellow on the Apple Watch 2, thanks to an Game Boy Color emulator “appropriately” named “Giovanni”.In the Pokemon games, both Giovanni and Pokemon Yellow hold very special values. Giovanni is the leader of the antagonists Team Rocket while Yellow was the only version of the game that let you start with a Pikachu, following the animated series’ beginnings. As such, Pokemon Yellow is held dear by Pokemon fans, like iOS developer Gabriel O’Flaherty-Chan.This isn’t the f

here’s how apple watch killed samsung’s first fitness tracking smartwatch

The Apple Watch has notably caused smartwatch efforts by other companies to fail, and a new profile from Fast Company details the impact Apple had on Samsung’s efforts in the category. The report explains that it all started back in 2011, when it was first rumored that Apple had an interest in developing a smartwatch.Once those rumors emerged, Samsung executives reportedly began thinking of how to best compete with Apple’s efforts, and ideally, beat Apple to the market. From the start, Samsung decided to place a focus on health features, fearing that the Apple Watch would otherwise have an immediate advantage with “advanced, clinical-grade biosensors.”In typical Samsung fashion, sources say, the executives in Korea wanted Samsung to beat Apple to the market with its own advanced health wea

how to use theater mode on the apple watch

Wear your Apple Watch to the movies without pesky notifications getting in the way.Last week, I was in the midst of watching a film at my local movie house when my wrist started frantically buzzing and lighting up. One or two buzzes during a movie isn't out of the ordinary, but after 12-15, you start to get a little concerned. I excused myself from the theater to check my iPhone — only to discover those frantic buzzes were just GIF replies on a group message chat. Ugh.Had I been running watchOS 3.2, however, I could have avoided the drama by turning on Theater Mode: Enable it, and it silences your Apple Watch, leaving the screen off unless you intentionally tap the screen or press one of the watch's buttons. Here's how to enable and use it!How to turn on Theater Mode for your Apple WatchOn

apple releases watchos 3.2 with new theater mode and sirikit

EnlargeAndrew CunninghamShare this storyThe latest update for the Apple Watch is now available. Apple is pushing out watchOS 3.2 today to bring two key features to its smartwatch: Theater Mode and SiriKit. This is the second addition since Apple released the huge watchOS 3 update back in September 2016.Theater Mode has been talked about a lot as Apple released betas of watchOS 3.2 over the past few months. It lets you mute sounds and disable the raise-to-wake feature of the watch, meaning its screen won't light up when it senses your wrist turning to check the time. This takes the Apple Watch's current Silent Mode onestep further, essentially eliminating all the lights and sounds the watch would make when triggered by movements or alerts. You'll still receive haptic feedback for incoming n
