Apple Watch Features

1. Digital Crown: It is the button on the side of the watch that you use to scroll through apps, change settings, and access music controls.

2. Force Touch: The Apple Watch has a feature called Force Touch. This lets you press hard on the screen to make things happen quicker.

3. Personalization: With your Apple Watch, customization is even easier than with your iPhone. You can change the color of your watch face, choose a different band, and even download apps directly from the watch.

4. Water-resistant: Unlike other smartwatches, your Apple Watch is water-resistant up to 50 meters (164 feet). That means it can be worn while swimming or while taking a shower (just don’t submerge it underwater).

5. Activity tracking: Every day, your Apple Watch will track the calories you’ve burned and steps you’ve taken—and that data will be uploaded to iCloud so you can see it on other devices as well as in HealthKit, a health-tracking app that’s available for iOS and OS X devices as well as for Apple TVs and iOS devices with built-in software called “tvOS”.

6. Phone calls: Your Apple Watch allows you to answer calls by pressing either side button or by double-tapping on its display—but only if both your iPhone and watch are connected via Bluetooth 4.0 LE; otherwise there’s no way to receive calls directly from an iPhone using an Apple Watch without using Siri voice commands

3. It doesn’t have a microphone
