Apple's Keynote Event Announcements!

Here's some of what's been announced and what I think is most relevant.

So let's get into it.

The Apple Watch:

  • Pokemon Go will be available on the Apple Watch. The watch will show you your stats and egg progress, Pokemon nearby and wild Pokemon appearing (within range), and you can access Pokestops with it. It can keep track of the items you collect during your workout.
  • The Apple Watch 2 is water resistant down to 50 meters. This means you can go swimming with it! In fact, they even have a learning algorithm to monitor your swimming.
  • The Apple Watch 2 has built-in GPS! You don't need cell service to track where you are.
  • Nike Plus and the Apple Watch, designed with runners in mind. It's called the Apple Watch Nike series!
  • The Apple Watch 2 has a ceramic finish.
