Apple Watch to enhance fitness monitoring using NFC tag reading

Apple has announced a brand new operating system for the Apple Watch called watchOS 4. Apple is introducing monthly goals and will deliver notifications to users that are approaching new streaks, in the hope of boosting motivation.

Apple has also expanded the swim mode, to automatically detect different sets.

If you've ever tried to track your indoor workouts, you may have noticed some discrepancies between what your fitness tracker tells you and what the treadmill tells you, and it can be hard to tell which one to listen to. "Now, this is being supported by the largest gym manufacturers in the world who provide about 80% of equipment in gyms today and Apple Watch-enabled gym equipment will be rolling out this fall".

Other useful fitness functions include the new ability to use the display as a safety feature to make you more visible when night running.

Trump meets Pope Francis at Vatican
The meeting appeared quite respectful but the Pope left Trump with an epic gift: the encyclical he penned on climate change. Trump will soon be leaving Rome, en route to Brussels for meetings with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders.

We expect to see the update roll out for free, so you won't have to spend any money to get the latest in watchOS software. We're not so sure about this, but go on... Multiple workouts can be combined back-to-back, letting you train for demanding physical events like triathlons without having to return to the Watch between stages. So, you'll be able to simply tap your Apple Watch on an NFC reader on the gym equipment.

There's also new full-face album art designs arranged in a deck of cards that are easier to swipe through.

"When we use gym equipment, it has data that the Apple Watch doesn't have and the Watch has data the gym equipment doesn't have so you end up with numbers - like calories and distance - that don't completely match", Lynch said during the opening keynote.

Toy Story watch facesIn addition to the Siri watch face, new Toy Story watch faces bring to life favorite Pixar characters including Woody, Jessie and Buzz Lightyear, while the Kaleidoscope watch face turns static images into mesmerizing patterns. There's also support for audio recording in the background navigation, screen auto-rotate and native Core Bluetooth.
