The Apple Watch has become the benchmark when you’re looking for the best smartwatch in the market. The Apple Watch Series 4, in particular, has impressed many tech pundits and everyday Apple fan.
Which is why the pressure is on for the Apple Watch Series 5, the Cupertino giant’s supposed next smartwatch offering. As early as now, however, the upcoming smartwatch already has an array of rumored features that might just make it the best Apple smartwatch yet, particularly when it comes to its fitness functions.
Now there might be one feature that can truly make it a more formidable smartwatch in the market – being iPad compatible.
For years, the Apple Watch relied heavily on the iPhone for configuration purposes. The Apple Watch app is also available only on the phone and people with iPads have no way of working with the gadget using their tablets.
Some reports, however, suggested the possibility of a dynamic Apple ecosystem that includes the Apple Watch, the iPhone and the iPad Pro. But based on the report, the functions might be limited to charging the wearable device.
The reason might be because Samsung has already introduced the concept of two-way charging, which allows owners to charge their smartwatch using the Galaxy S10 phones. It would be understandable if Apple doesn’t want to be left behind so they might just offer this option to the “iPhone 11” and the Series 5.
Now the same report also said that this feature will most likely be available in the next generation iPad Pro. If true, then possible compatibility between the Apple Watch Series 5 and the Apple tablet might not be far behind. As it is, having a dynamic Apple ecosystem would be beneficial to the user as he or she wouldn’t have to rely on power banks or outlets just to charge.
Addressing power concerns is natural for the next Apple smartwatch because of its complex functions. Most pressing or the rumored function that will most likely need extra juice from the Apple Watch is the supposed sleep tracking function.
If this pushes through, Apple will most likely need the user to wear his smartwatch all the time to get proper data. A minimum of two-day power range would be beneficial for such a feature.
