 Apples chief designer has a special liking for Apple Watch.


As Apples chief designer, Eve has revolutionized Apples first wearable device in form and function. As part of Apples autumn product launch, Apple also showed AppleWatchSeries4 on Wednesday. The watch is thinner than its predecessors, and has new health tracking features, such as an electrocardiogram (ECG) that can detect a users fall - increasingly independent of the iPhone in operation. In Eves view, this gives the product a deeper meaning and distinguishes it from other technologies.

Every bone in my body tells me that this is very important. Eve told the interview at the Jobs theater at Apple headquarters after the conference. Like his close friend, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, Ivey is always enthusiastic about Apples innovations. Apples new watch will be a more critical point of understanding and adoption of the product.

For Apples annual event, peoples eyes and expectations are focused on the companys best-selling device: the iPhone. This year, the product has a new series, a bigger and more expensive series than ever before. But less than 4 years later, AppleWatch has also become an important peripheral business. Apple did not publish specific sales data, but called the watch the worlds best-selling watch.

At a time when iPhone sales are stagnating, Apple Watch is becoming increasingly popular with consumers, which is crucial to Apple. Ivy also regarded the watch as the cornerstone of wearable technology. The original purpose of Apple was to make technology useful in a very personal way. This watch is undoubtedly the most personal product we have ever built. Eve said. He joined Apple 25 years ago, initially leaving his mark on the candy-colored iMac that was launched in the 1990s.

Eve would not reveal how Apples wearable devices will evolve outside the watch category, but Apple observers predict that the company may be developing an augmented reality device. Eve suggested that the watch might evolve over the next few years.

The clue to the future is that you can have a high degree of trust in yourself connected to the network -- not your phone, but yourself, Eve said. Eve, wearing a new watch with a white rubber strap, said the device helped him reduce his dependence on mobile phones.

It took a while for the watch to become popular. When it was launched in 2015, the watch was touted to some extent as a fashion accessory, Vogue magazine reported. Several recent versions have begun to emphasize health uses with new applications and features - measuring heartbeat, encouraging deep breathing, and competing with friends for fitness exercises.

After that, letters began pouring into Apples mailbox. People have described how the watch saves their lives by detecting unusual medical conditions or allowing them to contact someone in an emergency such as a car accident. Eve said he had read thousands of letters from users and had used his watch in emergencies.

Im passionate about this watch because I think it has a substantial impact on the quality of life and the ability to survive. Eve said.

AppleWatchSeries4 further expands its health related functions on the basis of previous generation products. The ECG function of the watch was licensed by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Apple says this is the first time that mainstream consumer devices have obtained such permission.

Eve said the digital crown of the watch must be redesigned to transmit pulses. Therefore, the honeycomb version of the watch has a thin red circle around the crown, rather than a complete red dot like the previous generation. The crown is one of the two contacts necessary for ECG function, and the other is an electronic heart rate sensor implanted in the back of the watch.

Nevertheless, the clinical function of smart watches remains questionable. Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, used the old Apple Watch to monitor signs of atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation is the main cause of stroke. They found that this is not a reliable test method. A year ago, Apple collaborated with Stanford University in a study to monitor irregular heartbeat. The new AppleWatch is smaller than the previous generation, but the screen is bigger. Its starting price is $399, which is on sale on Friday. Over the past few years, it has become increasingly independent of the iPhone through built-in cellular connectivity. New sensors, faster chips and loudspeakers make it more independent. The larger screen (closer to the edge of the watch) makes the watch easier to use - but Eve thinks its a way to reduce dependence on our devices. The screen isnt that big, so you dont spend all day browsing through it, Eve says. He added, it solves the functional needs of maintaining Unicom.
