blue.sun, 27 Mar 2021No, Apple Watch does not run iPhone apps. They need a special app.I know it's not just "any" app. It has to have a companion app option, but if there is one, it gets installed automatically. Most smart watches only have their own main app that connects phone and the watch and that's it. If the feature is not in it, that's that.
I have had the Apple Watch 6 since November. It's not the LTE model. I have AOD and notification sounds permanently off. I work out 5 days a week and screen brightness is set to maximum. I use 4 email accounts linked to it. A full battery charge lasts me on average 2 days. For the first 3 months I was using up about 32% of the battery daily.
Headline says, ''Apple rumored to be working on rugged Apple Watch''
So does that mean I may wear the rugged Apple Watch whilst engaging in rough and rugged fore play with my lady friends ? :-D :-P
blue.sun, 27 Mar 2021Rugged watch that can last up to one day on battery. Yeah that's what we need! Hey, Appl... moreLearn what? Can Garmin run basically any app installed on phone on the watch too? Coz that's what Apple Watch can do. It's why it lasts less than all the other, lets be frank here, "feature watches". If battery life on smart watch is what you need, then you just need to pick that watch. Most can still work just fine with iPhones anyways...

Hey, Apple, learn from Garmin.
So long as the extreme conditions last less than a day lol battery life is awful for such situations
beep bop boop, 26 Mar 2021one question... why would you want a rugged watch when you go on a hike?? i see many other peo... moreaccident happens. even on a mild hike, people still can fall that will break the arms and legs. but at least the watch survived
ILoveEeEe , 26 Mar 2021Hope it can withstand the sea water as I used to swim at the beach It will mean it cannot use Aluminium.. maybe a high grade stainless steel.
Maybe add some rubber to resist shock and increase seawater corrosion and save cost.
Then the price will be between the standard Apple Watch and the sports model.
Intersting. Apple has the technical knowlege to maximize rigged aspects with innovative structural design on top of having acces to intersting materials. The rugged aspect may also mean strategically expanding the case so, a bigger battery, a different look and better heat dissipation (if thats even an issue).
Apple is best for smart watches . They can do whatever they like .
Rugged Apple Watch probably means different band ... and that's it.
You do not expect Apple to change its charging simulator, do you?
