Apple Watch: Rumors on Smart Bands to Be Introduced, Reports on Workout Efficiency and the Latest Apps, More Information

Go for approximately a half hour run, with your iPhone as well as your Apple Watch. The Watch will gradually calibrate your speed with the GPS on your phone and figure out how fit you are and what your stride is like. As a result, when you participate in running or workouts, the watch will automatically calculate the calories you burn, based on its stored information.

If you conduct such calibration tests regularly, it will further improve the accuracy of your Apple Watch. Even if you don’t have your phone with you, while running indoors or outdoors, your watch will still provide you with almost-GPS like figures.

In the meantime, a popular money-saving website called RetailMeNot announced this week that it will launch a free application that allows bargain shoppers to look for the best nearby deals, from their Apple Watch.

According to Vice President of RetailMeNot Inc. Sonia Nagar, the app uses the latest location-aware technology for providing “another easy way to encourage consumers to take advantage of nearby offers while they shop”. Meanwhile, here are ten latest Apple Watch apps that you should definitely check out:
