Apple unveils watchOS 9

Apple unveils watchOS 9

Apple unveiled the Series 3 five years ago, and at WWDC 2022, it effectively put the smartwatch to bed. 

The Apple Watch Series 3 will not be supported by watchOS 9, implying that the Apple Watch SE will take over as Apple's affordable wristwatch.

The Series 3 wristwatch with cellular calling was announced in 2017. The battery life may have been improved. While Apple continued to maintain the Series 3, its time had come to an end.

Many customers have reported having trouble updating to watchOS 7 since its introduction in 2020. In addition, watchOS 9 added a slew of additional fitness and health features.

Apple is also introducing a new custom exercise activity that allows users to create their own programs using "work" and "recovery" periods.

Users will be able to set pace, power, heart rate, and cadence goals, as well as heart rate zones. These parameters are updated by haptic feedback and verbal notifications that tell you when to change steps.

 The new Multisport activity tracking mode for triathletes will automatically switch between swimming, cycling, and running.

In terms of health, Apple is releasing a new app called Medications. It will provide notifications for essential drug interactions, as well as optional data sharing with family or doctors, in addition to keeping track of your tablets.

Vitamins and supplements are examples of this. You'll also get reminders about what's being discussed and with whom on a regular basis. 

Notifications and watch complications will remind you to take medicines, freeing up space in your reminders app. You can handle everything from your iPhone's Health app even without an Apple Watch.
