Gestures Are Defining Apple Watch

Instead of the touches and swipes that power most of our screen-based computing devices, many of the core Apple Watch capabilities — like checking the time — are powered by gestures.

The use of gestures as a user interface may seem like a novelty to many, but, from the research we did over the last six months, it’s a game changer — a lot of the data and insights we gathered with the Wristly panel of more than 2,400 Apple Watch users corroborate it.

Stealing “Eye” Share From The iPhone

A majority of the panel members were checking their notifications via the watch regularly, which by definition means they’re not looking for that information on their phone:

“I realized I have come to COMPLETELY rely on my watch for all my Notifs/Glances. I don’t even know anymore how I would get by with only my phone.”

“With every text message, Facebook notification, email notification I get to decide whether it needs my attention without my phone.”

In fact, more than 90 percent of our panel said they use their iPhone less often now that they have Apple Watch:

“EVERY time I don’t have to fish my phone out, I like my Apple Watch more.”

Actual numbers back this up. Over the last month, Wristly collaborated with Kevin Holesh, the creator of the Moment app that tracks iPhone usage. More than 200 panelists installed the app and provided their tracking-log data. Wristly contrasted their relative usage to non-Apple Watch owners, as provided by Moment.


We found that an average Apple Watch user is using his or her iPhone quite a bit more than non-Apple Watch users: 26+ percent more time per day. This data point can be explained by the stage of market development, whereby an Apple Watch user is by definition among the power users of mobile; similarly, owners of the new iPhone 6s consume more than older iPhones users. Other market research companies such as Kantar are also measuring these differences.

But what is insightful and somewhat contradictory to this data point is that those same Apple Watch owners open/pick up their iPhone at least 20 percent less than non-Apple Watch owners.

This quantifies the anecdotal reporting from our panel; wearing an Apple Watch helps reduce the number of notifications and interruptions from your iPhone, and helps users remain focused on what is happening in the moment. And as more mainstream consumers start wearing Apple Watch, we can extrapolate that, over time, it will help users spend less time glued to their mobile screens.

Siri: The Vocal Apple Watch Killer App

Our panel consistently shares high usage rate of Siri and the other voice capabilities of the Apple Watch. In early June, the survey measured 65 percent of the users reporting using it more than expected. And we recently noted that Voice to Text was the second favorite way to respond to incoming messages. It also regularly garners rave reviews from our panelists when asked about their experience with Siri on the Apple Watch:

“Walking down the street carrying a cup of coffee in each hand, I was able to raise my wrist slightly and say ‘Hey Siri call…’ without having to set the coffees down and without having to touch the watch whatsoever!”

“Scheduled a haircut on my iPhone while picking up lunch…I lifted up my wrist, ‘Hey Siri…’ and it was done. Love those little moments.”

This seamless coordination of voice and movement creates a user experience that will be extremely difficult for competitors to beat — particularly those that lack an integrated hardware/software platform.

Gestures + Voice = Hands Free = Social Good

Aside from the practicality of using the Apple Watch for certain use cases (e.g., checking notifications), there is a positive social impact from a hands-free computing interface:

“I find that it helps me keep my iPhone in my pocket and stay more engaged in conversation/work on a daily basis and that is what I enjoy most about it.”

“Catching an email while out with everyone and not being yelled at for always being on my phone. Little flick of the wrist can be done without drawing attention to yourself.”

There’s certainly an added element of safety that the UX provides, too. After all, the National Safety Council estimates that there are more than 1.5 million crashes per year attributable to cell phone use while driving:

“Being able to drive in my car and not have to take my phone out of my pocket, unlock it, and open up an app I want to use. I can check the weather quickly and easily while driving.”

If the Apple Watch can put even a small dent in those numbers, it’s a great thing.

It’s “Day 1” For Gestures

Who would have thought a simple flick of the wrist would be a killer app? Still, there is so much more potential for Apple Watch’s gesture-based UX — and the coming months will surely bring many more third-party apps that will begin to take full advantage of it.

The Prynt Case Turns Your Smartphone Into A Polaroid Camera


The Prynt Case Turns Your Smartphone Into A Polaroid Camera

Hot off of their Haxlr8r demo day presentation a week ago, fittings startup Prynt was decent enough to drop by Techcrunch HQ to show off the most recent models of their cell phones cases, which contain inherent printers so you can quickly get a duplicate of that selfie with your closest companions.


The little French startup has been taking a shot at transforming your cell phone into a smaller than expected Polaroid cam since January. They’ve invested much of that time going by Shenzen to source parts and repeating on a straightforward plan that sends a photograph to the case over Bluetooth and afterward prints it by warming paper loaded with ink.


The current adaptation takes around 50 seconds from photograph to printed paper and can just hold one bit of paper at once. Anyhow the arranged shopper adaptation will hold 10-30 sheets of paper and take less than 30 seconds to print because of better fittings joining and an immediate physical association between the telephone and case.

Prynt CEO Clément Perrot says that the case will just cost $99 when first made accessible by means of a Kickstarter right on time one year from now and will have the capacity to help leader telephones with ~4.x-inch screens. They’re at present chipping away at a mount that will likewise represent phablets like the Galaxy Note or iphone 6 Plus.


One slick peculiarity that could help the Prynt case pick up footing is an expanded reality characteristic incorporated with the organization’s cam application. When you bring a photograph with Prynt’s application, it really records a feature of the minutes around when you clicked the catch and sends it to the cloud. When you hold up the physical photograph to your telephone’s cam with the application open, it is overlaid with a Play catch that demonstrates that feature set up of the picture itself.

It’s similar to Snapchat however with a physical token that provides for you consent to see features. With a specific end goal to make it significantly more secure, the organization is investigating traps like concealing pixels in pictures that would keep them from being duplicated, so a photograph of the photograph wouldn’t raise the play catch in the application.

It’s truly clever to see in individual, and in the more drawn out run Prynt is taking a gander at ways they could give you a chance to print a photograph of one thing — say, your feline — and demonstrate a feature of something else when its held to the applica

Samsung announces the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3, its “slimmest smartphones to date”


Samsung pledged to present more attractive telephones when it uncovered its disillusioning Q3 2014 income yesterday, and it has squandered no time doing so in the wake of advertising the Galaxy A5 and the Galaxy A3 — two metallic gadgets that it calls its “slimmest cell phones to date.”


The Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3 both forgo the Korean organization’s custom of utilizing plastic bodies. They are 6.7mm and 6.9mm flimsy separately, and both accompany a five-megapixel front-confronting cam. The Galaxy A5 is the higher specc’ed telephone, with a five-inch screen, 2gb RAM, 1.2 Ghz quad-center processor, and 15-megapixel cam on the back,

The Galaxy A3 sports a more diminutive 4.5-inch screen, with the same processor, 1gb of RAM and an eight-megapixel cam. Both run Android Kitkat (4.4), incorporate backing for 4g systems, and an opening for Micro-SD memory cards.


Samsung’s income has stalled as Apple’s iphones crushes it at the top-end of the cell phone market — the iphone 6 dispatches in Korea, after an enormous number of preorders in Samsung’s home market — yet these new Galaxy telephones have all the earmarks of being centered around China and the mid-level market all the more by and large.

The Korean firm says the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 will dispatch in “select markets including China” in November. That Samsung is particularly saying China is fascinating, following Xiaomi’s telephones — which retail at $300 and $150, and have moved it to number three in the cell phone rankings — are affecting Samsung’s (and other telephone maker’s) business in the nation. Lenovo as of now has arrangements to viably clone Xiaomi with another China-just business dispatching one year from now, yet Samsung looks to be intending to give a premium-like experience on a more moderate plan with these new items — despite the fact that the estimating for the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 is yet to be uncovered.

We reached Samsung to ask which different markets the telephones will dispatch in, and the amount they will cost. We’ll overhaul this post with any new data
