Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth is cool. Makes Apple Watch more useful in a Wi-Fi zone.
Lynch: Also like when traveling to airport, use Apple Watch to get through security
Lynch: American - can see flight info, seat number, bar code that can wave at scanner to get through security.
Lynch: Thats' really great. one less thing to hold on to
Near airport, boarding pass pops up plus QR code. Like Passbook. (Android Wear does this too, to some degree)
Lynch: When leaving, like to send wife goodbye note. Can do that with digital touch. Brings up my friends
Lynch: Can call her, send a message or use digital touch. I'm going to draw a little picture for her
The colorful friend dial to reach friends is a very nice touch. No parallel in other watches I've seen.
The more Kevin Lynch talks, the more the shares go down. Now up just 1 percent (after hovering around 1.5 percent). All in all, investors are saying "meh"
W Hotel reservation popping up: notifications get colors, images, style. Not simple plain text.
Lynch: Starwood's W Hotel app. Has all info need to check in. Rich notifications. Can act on these. Can use this to unlock my door right from the notification on my watch.
Lynch: Can bypass front desk entirely and go to room. Watch is key. Can wave it to go into room
(A lot of these apps are ones we already knew about and saw at the September event)
W mini-app also unlocks hotel door. Nice.
Lynch: Hear song and wonder what it is. Can use Shazam on my watch
Shazam brings up name of song and the lyrics
Scrolling apps means going back to big field of colored app-circles. Shazam running on Apple Watch shows what song is playing.
Lynch: I see the song, album art, lyrics are in sync with the song being played right now
My question: can apps be found easily, and will they pop up easily? Or will they start spamming me with notifications?
Lynch: When I'm traveling I might receive some messages as well. One coming in from daughter Maddie. Saying forgot key and can't get in house
Lynch: I can reply from watch. Dictation. Say - it's OK. I can unlock garage door. Can send as audio file or as text
Responding to people: can send as text transcription, or direct audio file.
Lynch: Great app from Alarm.com. Garage door is set up. Can see garage door is closed. Have a camera pointed at door. Seeing live feed pointed at garage door. Sending command to open door. And can see it opening from the watch
Now showing garage door opening via camera remote, seeing live feed of door opening on watch. Surveillance on watch? Snazzy.
Lynch: These are just a few examples of the great apps being made for Apple Watch. A big focus here has been saving you time
Lynch: Excited to see what develoeprs are going to do with this great new platform
That garage-door opening app was Alarm.com.
Apple clearly banking on app community for this watch.
