Although the Apple Watch will be on sale soon, we still have some details to learn more about the wearable from Apple . Among them are the real autonomy and its possible resistance to water or not.
Well, today we know these details from Tim Cook himself, who told an employee of the Apple Store in Berlin that he always carries his Apple Watch, even in the shower . With this at least we are clear that we can shower with the Apple Watch; what is not so clear is that we can dive or go to the pool with it. Although the sports version should at least offer this possibility, precisely because of its capabilities.
Of course, this will not be the first intelligent watch that can be put under water, and that is that a device as personal as this one must at least be able to accompany us in the shower . However, many will prefer to take it off before entering. We are afraid by nature, and although we are told that we can get into the pool with a Sony Xperia, we prefer not to do so, and we are left with that possibility in order to survive a possible accident.
The battery will continue to be its main weakness, as is also the case with most smartwatches , which barely exceed one day’s autonomy . And indeed, the Apple Watch has a battery that lasts only one day. Cook confirmed that he takes it out every night to charge it.
And these statements by Cook also reached the Apple Pay in Europe, for which it seems that we will still have to wait, since Apple seems to be in no hurry to take it to the old continent. Although companies like Visa or British banks are eager to support Apple Pay, the CEO of Apple just says that the company’s goal is to bring it before the end of the year . For the time being the next country to receive Apple Pay will be Canada in March.
