Apple gave more details on the Apple Watch, the first watch connected, then to a conference Monday, March 9. Notably, its price, its release date and its features have been specified.
For the first time since its formalization in last September, it was the Apple Watch question at a conference of the Apple brand. At the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco, on Monday, March 9, Apple made a tour of the features of its smart watch, revealing in passing its price and its launch date. The penultimate stage of a wait cleverly orchestrated before launching an assault on the booming market connected watches, where it is expected by analysts as the product that can open it to the public. Before these announcements expected, Tim Cook has also lifted the veil on the new range of MacBook to the Cupertino company.
Relive the Conference in Our Live Below.

From 349 dollars for the sport 38 mm, and $ 399 for the sport 42 mm. In France, from 399 euros. The small wrists so cheaper, will not pay new to a version for left-handers.

19: 10- Tim Cook mentions “thousands” of applications already developed for the Watch. Facebook, Instagram, and many others had already been announced in September. Uber is added to the list.

19: 03- Little background on applications of the Apple Watch forphysical activity. Every Monday, she will give a report the previous week health and will show when it is necessary to move after a too long period of inactivity.
A little bit patronising. #AppleWatch PIC.Twitter.com/38J8Nd6rFw

19 h- The Apple CEO reminds its characteristics and functionalities. The watch will give the time (they tended to forget it), will meet SMS instantly, take calls without taking out his iPhone. An option “Glances” (stealth) will quickly display widgets (weather, calendar, music, cardio…), read mp3, to pay with Apple Pay to display notifications of media and social networks. Apple Watch can connect to an another Watch nearby via the side button (“digital touch”) to send drawings, the poke, his pulse… No great innovation compared to his first presentation.
18 h 55 – Tim Cook is back on stage. Place the Apple Watch.

It has a Retina display 12-inch resolution of 2304 x 1440 pixels that saves 30% less than its predecessor. At halfway between the Tablet and the laptop so. It also embeds a new keyboard (with new backlight) and a “Taptic Engine” trackpad which introduced new types of clicks via new gestures. For the processor, it is an Intel Core M from 1.3 Ghz, all without fan. It is announced with an all-day battery life (9 hours in surf fashion) and a new type of batteries (so probably Chargers).
