Today, Apple revealed the Apple Watch, the much-hyped smartwatch that the company has been building up since it was first mentioned last September. It is a highly customizable wearable (even with a Mickey Mouse face) and several impressive features, including the ability to take calls on your wrist (!), plus Apple Pay and Siri, and many third-party apps like Shazam. It is a machine of excellent convenience (not unlike Android Wear for Google addicts) and great design.
Apple CEO Tim Cook also called it a "comprehensive health and fitness companion." The watch has lots of fitness features, primarily in the two fitness apps: Workout, for data tracking during a run or on a cardio machine like an elliptical, and Activity, for everyday fitness stats like steps taken or calories burned. Those look pretty slick, but we have a few dream features for the Apple Watch that we would like to see someday. Many of these are flat-out unreasonable requests—and it should be noted that Apple has opened it API with WatchKit SDK for developers to make future cool fitness apps—but we thought they should be mentioned. The Apple Watch starts at $349 and will begin shipping soon.
