First Major Update for Apple Watch Arriving Soon – Report

It is likely that Cupertino-based company will unveil several updates during its Worldwide Developers Conference 2015, which will get underway from June 08 to June 12.

Apple Watch users should get ready for a big hardware and software updates, sources claim. These updates will improve features like connectivity, security and health and fitness.

It has not even been a month since Apple Watch hit the market, and the rumors of big updates are already surrounding the market.

According to a recent article published in 9to5Mac, a new feature named “Find my Watch” will be added to the wearable device. This feature is similar to the Find my iPhone feature, as it will allow users to remotely track, lock and delete all the data from the smartwatch in case it gets lost or stolen.

The tech-giant will use Smart Leashing technology in which the wireless signals from Apple’s wearable tech will be used to identify its location relative to the location of iPhone. An optional reminder will then be sent to the users in case they accidently leave their iPhone somewhere.

Users may also get interesting updates for the health and fitness apps. The company is testing out the heart rate sensor to bring a irregular heart beat to the user’s attention. However, government regulations and potential liability concerns may hamper this feature’s release.

Aside from the heart rate sensor, Apple plans on bringing the sleep tracker and blood pressure monitor feature to Apple Watch in the not-so-distant future.

Apple was expected to release a series of updates for its first-ever wearable gadget, but to find them coming this early is nothing short of a pleasant surprise.
