What’s the new keyboard layout for Apple Watch?
Fox Sports’ Chris Simms has the latest on Apple Watch.
WatchOS 2, which will launch next week, adds support for the Apple Watch Pro, and will allow users to swap between watch bands and display screens.
The new watchOS 2.0 interface also introduces a new, customizable watch face.
“The Apple Watch and Apple Watch Series 2, the Apple watchOS 1.0, are going to go through some major changes.
The Apple Watch will be going through some significant changes and you will see a lot of changes going forward,” Simms said on Monday.
“That’s why it’s important for us to make sure that we deliver on that, and we have a lot to do.”
Simms added that the new Apple Watch watch face is a departure from the existing design.
“Apple Watch is a very different watch face, so we are not going to use the same icons and the same fonts as the other watch faces,” he said.
“There are new faces coming that we are really excited about, and I think that we will be very happy with them.”
Sims said the new watch face will include more than just icons and fonts.
“We have a whole new system,” Sims said.
The watch face has a new UI, “and we are going from the very basic look that you see on the AppleWatch to the very sophisticated look that we’ve been wanting to deliver on for years.”
Simm said the Apple Watches watch faces will be more responsive than previous Apple Watch design, but that the WatchOS 3 watch face isn’t expected to be the same.
“For some of the watch faces that are coming out there will be a different UI,” he added.
“I think that that’s really exciting, because that’s not how the Apple watches have been designed before.
We have a very simple watch face and that is really not going away.”
Simmp said Apple will offer a new watch app to allow users with different watch bands to swap screens.
Simms described the new app as “not just a watch app” but as a “watchface app,” a way for users to customize their watch face on the Watch.
Simms also said the watchOS 3.0 watch faces “will be coming to the Apple Store as a free download, and they will be available for all Apple Watch models.”
Simp added that Apple Watch owners should not expect the new interface to replace the current interface.
“This is not a replacement of the current watch interface, it’s a very simplified watch interface that is designed to give you more flexibility in terms of how you use your watch,” Simp said.
Sims also said that the watch is getting a “new look.”
“There is a new look,” he explained.
“It’s a lot more refined and more polished, and it’s going to be more beautiful and you are going a little bit closer to the new style of design that you would expect from a watch.”
Simpson’s interview with Fox Sports was released Sunday, and he was asked about Apple Watch sales and how it impacted the Watch’s performance.
Simpson said he is “surprised” that Apple is not announcing new Watch sales.
“To me, this is really important,” Simpson said.
Simpson said Apple Watch’s sales are “a good indicator of how people are using it.”
“People are really using it, and the watch’s really selling really well,” Simpson added.
