Apple Released watchOS 9 with New Watch Faces and Wellness Functions
Apple watchOS 9 with New Innovative Features
Apple revealed the next watchOS 9 upgrade today at WWDC. The new version improves the watch faces, Workout app, sleep stages, the first-ever AFib History, and medication tracking.
The watchOS 9 comes with four new watch faces which are Lunar, Playtime, Metropolitan, and Astronomy are among them. The Portraits face now shows the depth effect on photographs of animals, dogs, and landscapes, and several of the classic watch faces, such as Modular, Modular Compact, and X-Large, now have changeable backdrop colours and gradients.
The Workout app now displays more data and analytics. Furthermore, the custom workouts enable you to design an organized workout with custom work and rest times. New notifications can also be added, such as pace, power, heart rate, and cadence.
The Exercise app now includes a new Multisport workout type for triathletes that automatically transitions between any sequence of swimming, riding, and running sessions using motion sensors to analyze movement patterns.
The watchOS 9 now displays additional running metrics for runners, such as stride length, ground contact duration, and vertical oscillation, to help you maximize your running. Those who run routinely on the same routes can now compete against their prior best or last result.
A new pacer mode indicates the speed required for a specific distance and time objective. With the addition of sleep stages, Apple has improved sleep tracking, and not only that the software now includes a breakdown of REM, Core, and Deep sleep.
Furthermore, watchOS 9 includes AFib history for people who have been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation. The Apple Watch can now detect AFib by tracking your heart rate and displaying how regularly your heart rhythm shows indicators of AFib. In the Health app, users will receive weekly notifications as well as a complete history. A PDF of it can be obtained to share with your doctors.
Last but not least, watchOS 9 has Prescriptions, which allow you to manage and track your medications and vitamins, as well as set schedules and reminders. In the United States, you will also receive warnings if there are any potential critical interactions with the medications uploaded to the Health app.
Other additional features include kickboard detection and SWOLF score for swimmers and Home app support in Family Setup. Not only that, new Quick Actions, Apple Watch Mirroring for managing the watch through the iPhone’s assistive functions, and redesigned alerts are also available.
Later this year 2022, eligible Apple Watch models will be able to get watchOS 9.
