New Apple iWatch Unveiled: Big Online Gambling PotentialPublished March 10, 2015 by Amir G
The new details about the upcoming Apple Watch ignite the imagination on the futuristic possibilities smartwatches could hold for online gambling.
Apple has revealed new details about the upcoming Apple Watch yesterday, first and foremost its release date which will be April 24th with pre-orders beginning April 10th.
Apple Watch Sport and Regular Editions
The Apple Watch will come in three different tiers, all in two sizes: 38mm and 42mm. The Apple Watch Sport is the first tier that is targeted more for individuals who engage in physical activities.
The mid-tier, simply called "Apple Watch", is the one targeted to the widest audiences. It will be available with different bands which are price dependent, including a classic buckle, Milanese loop, leather loop and a stainless steel/space black stainless steel link bracelet.
Biting into Luxury Watches
The third-tier of watches reveals Apple's hopes to get into the market of high-end Swiss and Japanese luxury watches. Called The Apple Watch Edition, these watches are made of rose/yellow gold and they go anywhere from $10,000 to $17,000 – a price with which one could buy 2 or 3 Rolexes or Grand Seikos to keep for the next generations.
Accuracy is important when it comes to watches – the Apple Watch is said to within 50 milliseconds of UTC. Battery life is expected to be up to 18 hours but is usage load dependent; it is charged with a magnetic cable. The watch can distinguish between taps and touches and carries on with Siri which responds to voice commands.
With an iPhone companion app, users can actually make calls from their wrist, as well as use apps, make purchases, control music, keep exercise info and other kinds of handy and less handy things.
Online Gambling Future
The Apple Watch could bring smartwatches into the mobile online gambling world, seeing that it will open the market to many people who recognize the brand. The possibilities are mind-blowing for online casinos: Video slots could be played on the wrist, live dealers that detect players' wrist motions, deposits and withdrawals by one tap and many other possibilities that wake and shake the sci-fi sense.
