Apple Watch Series 1 Review

Apple Watches are a combination of highly featured and fashionable displays. With a list of benefits, it is the most preferred gadget and is the most user-friendly gadget of Apple Inc. It lacks some advanced features that the advanced versions have but still at a cheap price it is good to go.

It is newer than the original Apple Watch that we called 

“Series Zero” which was launched in 2015. In 2016 AWS1 and AWS2 were launched with the same features but now AWS 2 was discontinued.

List down the specifications of AWS1 that make it different from other versions;

Notifications accessibility

Apple Watches have built-in features for basic calls and messages. You can answer calls or reply to messages anytime anywhere.

Battery Life

It doesn’t have good battery life as compared to series 3 and new versions. It has an average battery life of 8 hours.

Storage

It has 8 GB of total storage out of which 3 GB is occupied by the OS and 3 GB is for downloading apps and the remaining 2 GB is for music.

Cellular Options

It doesn’t have cellular options but has Wifi accessibility. It won’t help you with GPS or other cellular options.

Splash Proof

It does not swim proof like Series 3 but it is splashproof. So, it will survive in an accidental water splash or a brief drunk.

Health and Fitness Feature

Apple Inc. focused on Health and Fitness feature that would be beneficial for users. It had all steps count or exercise step features installed within.

Health Monitoring

It will monitor your heart rate and send notifications to your iPhone where you analyze your health condition.

Reduced Prices

Its price would be reduced to $269 from $349 with the launch of Series 2. But with this affordable price, its processor will be upgraded.

Dual Core Processor

AWS1 has a Dual Core Processor but now its processor was upgraded. Now the Apple Watch Series 1 has a new dual-core processor which makes it work more efficiently.

Display

AWS 1 provides a force touch with an OLED Retina display. Its 44 mm version has a resolution of 303 PPI while the 38 mm version has a resolution of 290 PPI.

Siri

AWS1 has built-in accessibility to SIRI and it supports many languages including English, French, Japanese, German, and many more.

Music availability

Apple Watches has internal storage depending on their version. We can listen to music online or offline and can install different apps for music in Series 3 but that feature is missing in Series 1.

It can’t play music on Wifi but it would be attached to the iPhone for playing music.

Removable Band

Its band would be removed easily. We can change its old band and replace it with the new one

These are some basic specifications of the Apple Watch Series 1 that a new or an old user must know before buying it. It is most of the time on sale and it has a lower price comparison as compared to AWS 3.

It is worth buying if you want a smartwatch that is budget-friendly too. In short, it has all the features which a daily use gadget needs to have.

Second Generation of Apple Watch Series

The second generation of Apple Watches contains series 1 and 2. Both were launched at the same time but have differences in specifications or features.

Apple Watch Series 1 is the original Apple Watch with watchOS 4 operating system. It has almost the same features as compared to Series 2 and 3, but in addition to that, it has a powerful processor.

It has an average of 18 hours of battery life and has a lower starting price and is sold only in Aluminium casings.

Apple Watch Series 2 Dual core processor with GPS receiver and Water Resistance of 50 m. Its brightness is twice that of AWS1.

It was sold in a casing of anodized Aluminium, Ceramic, and Stainless Steel. Its battery life is the same as that of AWS1, 18 hours. 

It is no longer in the market and Apple Inc. discontinued it.
