Voiceover

Hearing heading.


Douglas Walker

Okay. Here’s our mono audio settings coming up here, so we’ll just flick through that.


Voiceover

Mono audio. Off. Double tap to toggle setting.


Douglas Walker

Okay, so activating this toggle switch will turn off our stereo audio for us, and it will fore all of the audio into one or both of our earpieces. And that can be really handy. All right, so let’s right flick here.


Voiceover

Adjust the audio volume balance between left and right channels.


Douglas Walker

Okay, and here we have a left-right stereo. Hang on, let me flick back to it.


Voiceover

Mono audio. Off. Adjust the audio volume balance between left and right. Left-right stereo balance.


Douglas Walker

Ah, there it is.


Voiceover

50% adjustable. Swipe up or down with one finger to adjust the value.


Douglas Walker

I jumped right over that for some reason. All right. Here we have a left-right stereo balance adjustable bar here. Now this gives us the ability to move our audio to either our left or our right speaker if we might happen to have some hearing loss in either one of our ears here. And okay. So I think we heard it, but if we flick again, we’ll get a description of this, so we’ll just right flick.


Voiceover

Adjust the audio volume balance between left and right channels.


Douglas Walker

And there you go, so that’s our descriptor for that. So let’s go ahead and right flick to our last accessibility setting here, so we’ll just right flick.


Voiceover

Accessibility shortcut voiceover button.


Douglas Walker

Great. And here is our accessibility shortcut button. Now, this is very similar to having the ability to triple click our iPhone’s home button. To turn so that we can turn on and off our accessibility settings, you know, like voiceover or zoom. Now, our watch doesn’t have a home button. However, it does have a digital crown. And our digital crown really doesn’t act much like our home button, so we would just triple click our digital crown instead to turn, to toggle on and off our accessibility setting. Now, we’ll go over the orientation of our watch in just a bit, and we’ll see exactly where our digital crown is located, and we’ll check out how it works, as well.


You know, it’s really nice to know, though, that we have the ability here in our accessibility shortcut settings to decide how exactly how we want to use that triple click feature there.
All right, so that pretty much does it for our watch’s accessibility features. So before we actually begin navigating our watch, how about we open things up to see if we have any questions on anything that’s been covered so far. So I will just go ahead and hand the microphone back over.
Larry Muffett

Yeah, Douglas. We do have some questions in the text box. Let’s jump on these first and then I’ll turn the microphone over to the people in the audience. Number one, JJ says which iPhone will he need to have in order to use the Apple Watch?


Douglas Walker

Okay, now the Apple Watch, that’s a great question. The Apple Watch does seem to work in conjunction, like we said, with your iPhone, so you’re going to need the iPhone 5 or up, so that’s the iPhone 5, I believe it’s the 5S, the 5C, the 6 or the 6+ in order to be able to have your Apple Watch be able to sync with your iPhone and have it work properly.


Larry Muffett

Elizabeth has the question I think so many of us are thinking right now, how much does one of these cost?


Douglas Walker

One of these things cost, they’re not cheap. Especially some of the higher-end ones. The sports edition, which is the one that I have, I wanted one that was really light on my wrist because I don’t want a lot of weight on my wrist, and it happens to be the less expensive one, so they begin at $349 for the 38-milimeter size watch. They have two different sizes: the 38-millimeter and the 42-millimeter which is just a little larger watch face. I opted for the 42-millimeter watch face because I wanted, I have low vision. I tell people just enough vision to be dangerous. But I do have a little bit of vision and so I thought that perhaps the larger screen would make a bit of a difference, and it does. But it’s just, it’s not, I have a kind of small wrist. So it’s not unusually large on my wrist, it works just fine.


So it starts at $349 and then you can move, there are varying costs there, depending upon which band you get and stuff. And then it walks up to the, I think it starts at §549 for the Apple Watch, which is the stainless steel on, which is a little weightier and some people prefer a little more weight on their wrist, so and I think you can work a couple of hundred dollars up from that point. And then if you have a little pocket change, or just some money laying around, you might want to go for the watch edition, which starts at $10,000 and that’s the gold watch and it jumps form there up to as much as $17,000. So didn’t happen to have that laying around, so I opted for the sports edition and it started at $399.
Larry Muffett

Another question. Erica wants to know does it come with the male voice or the lady voice or does it have a feature so you can change the voice that you’re hearing?


Douglas Walker

Right now it only comes with what we know as Samantha, you know, everybody’s familiar with the older iPhone voice, an I think that’s probably because there’s a limited amount of memory within the watch, so it doesn’t have Alex that we’ve come to know on the newer iPhone so it has Samantha, but it’s a really robust Samantha, so and I’ve been using the iPhone for quite a long time, so we’re used to Samantha, so hopefully in the future, you never know. They might add a male voice, but for now, we have the female voice.


Larry Muffett

Jessica’s got a bunch of questions here. She said what, what size do you recommend for someone like her who has low vision and she says she’ll be wearing it on her right wrist and how will this affect navigation?


Douglas Walker

When we looked at the accessibility setting on the Apple Watch app, it did have the option for swapping the wrist, and so you would simply just flip the side, the watchband, you do have an array of different types of watchbands and I would really recommend going into the Apple Store and trying all these different watchbands. I’m happy with the sports watchband that came with mine. But you might want to go check it out. But you just flip the watchbands over It’s pretty easy to do, they would actually do that for you in the Apple Store and you switch the orientation from wearing it on your left wrist to your right wrist within your Apple Watch app, and it would take care of it. You would have no problems with your gestures, they should all work as expected.


Larry Muffett

All right, I’m going to turn the microphone loose here, so let’s queue up and see if we have any questions from the audience.


Caller

Yes, this is Elizabeth speaking. I actually got a few. Number one, I’ve got an iPad mini, and will it be able to work with that? Number two, what exactly, what types of bands are there for this one?


Douglas Walker

First one, no, it will only pair with the iPhones that I mentioned earlier, so it’s not going to pair with any of the iPads, unfortunately, so for now, it’s only pairing with the iPhone. I don’t know if they’re going to change that or Apple will change that in the future or not. But just the iPhones mentioned earlier, for the iPhones 5 and up, the newer iPhones, and so far as watchbands, oh my goodness, there are metal bands that you can get. There are also leather bands. Just a wide array and like I said earlier I would really, really recommend if you’re interested going into the Apple store and actually trying them on because you want to get the one that works for you. So there’s just a ton of bands to pick from, and I imagine that in the near future, you’ll see all sorts of third-party bands coming along, too. So keep an eye out for those, as well.


Caller

How is the sharing options for somebody’s who’s low, who’s hearing impaired?


Douglas Walker

I mentioned a couple in the, you know, when I was going through the Apple Watch app settings there, so there is the mono audio, which is really great, because it knocks all the stereo to both speakers, which is pretty, pretty cool for somebody with a hearing loss and also you have the ability to balance all the sound to either your left or your right ear so there’s not a wide, wide array.


But I think that, keep in mind, this is a very, very new product and if we remember way back to the first iPhones, oh, my goodness, they added so many features from the very first one, and actually we’ve had, we’ve had a software update on the Apple Watch just this past week that fixed several of the bugs and changed one of the features on there, so they’re already looking at it within a month, we have, now we have software 1.0.1, so Apple’s really looking and really going to make those changed for us, so hopefully they’ll add even more accessibility features. However, the ones that are there are pretty fantastic, so they learned a lot from the iPhone and they’ve really carried them over to the Apple Watch already.
Caller

Yes, I’ve got one more thing. This is Elizabeth speaking again. When you see your cell phone ring, and will that be able to come through both things- the telephone and the thing itself?




Douglas Walker

You have the option to either answer it on your Apple Watch, or your iPhone. So if you actually answer it on your Apple Watch, as soon as you pick up your iPhone and your start, and you activate your, you know, you stick it to your ear, it automatically transfers it over to your iPhone, which is pretty nice. And you also have the ability to you know, say, initiate the I’ll call you back later feature and stuff like that. So pretty great, pretty cool to be able to talk right from your watch and I can’t wait to talk about that more this next segment coming up.


Larry Muffett

Well, that’s a great segue. We got time for just one more question before we need to move on. We’ll have another question period later on in the seminar, but one more question from the audience.


Caller

Hi, this is Anne, and my question is two parts. Do you have to have the iPhone with you to use the iWatch? And also when answering a call, does the two-finger double tap answer and hang up a call on the watch? Does it conflict with some of the three finger gestures that we’re now using for two fingers on the watch? Thank you.




Douglas Walker

Great question. A lot of great questions. Actually all these questions are fantastic today. You know, that was something that I was really worried about in the second part of your question. I’m going to jump on that to begin with was the two-finger answer, because I was like, oh my goodness, am I really going to have to flick to that button and try to answer that? So yes, it works, it works. You just tap with two fingers and you can answer and then you can hang up your call as well, so the two finger gesture doesn’t conflict with any of the other, you notice that you have more two finger gestures now than three fingers. It doesn’t seem to conflict with any of the other gestures and unfortunately, I answered your second one first and forgot your first one, so can you please repeat that first question?


Caller

Yes, gladly. Do you have to have the iPhone with you for the iWatch to work? Can you be out like for a run and just have the watch and leave the phone and home?


Douglas Walker

Yes and no. Not all the features are going to work, but you can sync and you know, when I’m out for exercise and my run, there’s a great feature. I like to use it just, I know that I’m just going to use the watch. The watch, of course, works. And then I was worried about my music. I wanted to take my music with me, and I use the Bluetooth earpiece and you can sync a playlist. Of course, you’re limited on the size of the amount of music that you can put on there, I think it’s anywhere to a couple of gig of music that you can put on there. It may not be that much, but that’s enough for a good run, and so you can sync, develop a playlist on your iPhone and then sync that playlist and take it with you. Of course, your text message in your phone and all that stuff, you can leave the phone part at home. It’s pretty much just a watch and your, an iPod at that point, so but yeah, those two features work and like I said, when I’m out on a run, that’s pretty much all I use, anyway.


Larry Muffett

Douglas, why don’t we go ahead and move on to the next section and then we’ll take some more questions later.


Douglas Walker

All right. So now let’s let the real fun begin, right? Now that we know how the Apple Watch and our iPhone all work together, let’s take a look at how our watch is laid out, and at the same time, we will navigate through our watch to see how everything works. Okay, first of all, and probably the most obvious is of course, our watch’s face. Now, when we stop interacting with our watch, and after about 15 seconds, we’ll hear a little chirp audio cue, and our watch, that means our watch has fallen asleep. So to wake it up, all we need to do is just tap or touch our watch’s face. Okay, so how about we try that? We’ll just touch our watch’s screen here and we’ll just touch.


Voiceover

It’s 1:18 PM.


Douglas Walker

All right, and there we hear our time. Now I am currently using the Mickey Mouse watch face. I know, right? I finally have a Mickey Mouse watch that is accessible and I can actually use. This is amazing, right?


All right, now we’re not going to get into how to change our watch’s face in today’s seminar. However, it’s great to know that we have ten different watch faces in which we can choose from. Now I know that I currently have my Mickey Mouse watch face selected. However, there is a really great large print watch face for those of us with low vision, as well. Now I’ve been talking for a bit and we probably heard that little chirp audio cue there, so we know that our watch has fallen asleep again, so we’ll just need to tap our screen to wake it back up when we need to. Now when we do wake it up, we’ll just right and left flick through our screen, or our watch face, to check out the other types of elements that we have on our watch face here, so let’s do that. We’ll just touch our watch face. We’ll do that here.
Voiceover

It’s 1:19 PM.


Douglas Walker

Hear Mickey talking, it’s a higher voice there. And there’s our time again, so let’s just left flick to see what we have. We’ll just left flick.


Voiceover

55 degrees. Double tap to open weather.


Douglas Walker

So there we have our weather in the top right hand corner of our screen or our watch face, and as voiceover announced, if we single finger double tap here, our watch’s weather app is going to open. And there we can be given our complete local weather, so that’s pretty great, to be able to access it from right there.


Okay, so my watch is going to keep falling asleep, and that’s fine. All we have to do is just tap our screen, so we’ll just tap our screen to wake it back up here.
Voiceover

It’s 1:20 PM.




Douglas Walker

And so there’s our time. So let’s just left flick a couple of times, and we’ll just left flick.


Voiceover

55 degrees. Double tap to open weather.


Douglas Walker

And there’s our temperature again. So we’ll just flick again here.


Voiceover

64% battery power.


Douglas Walker

Great, and here we find our battery indicator in the top left corner of our screen. And that’s kind of nice to know how much battery life we have there. All right, so I believe we’re at the top of our screen, but we’ll just left flick again to see there. Did it again. Just to make sure. Okay, we heard that top of list audio cue, so we know for sure that we’ve reached the top of our screen now. However, I know that we have one more item at the very bottom of our screen here, so let’s just right flick a few times to find it, and we’ll just right flick it, fell asleep again so we’ll wake it up here.


Voiceover

It’s 1:21 PM.


Douglas Walker

We’ll probably only have to right flick one more time so we’ll right flick again.


Voiceover

Next event. No more events.


Douglas Walker

Okay.
Voiceover

Double tap to view your calendar.
Douglas Walker

So yeah, that’s great because here we find today’s next calendar event, and I don’t have another calendar event after this seminar today, so that’s pretty good. And we heard voiceover announce that if we just single finger double tap, we can open our watch’s calendar app to view all of our events that are coming up, so that’s pretty great.


Okay, so I believe that’s the last element on our watch’s ace. However let’s just right flick a couple more times to see what we have here, so we’ll just right flick to make sure. We’ll wake up our watch.
Voiceover

It’s 1:21 PM.


Douglas Walker

And right flick a couple of times.


Voiceover

Next event.


Douglas Walker

Yeah, that was it after our events there, and I’ll flick again just to hear it. Yeah, we heard our end of list audio cue there again. Or, you know, in this case, our end of face, watch face audio cue.


All right. I think that, you know, we really are already beginning to see how navigating our watch is very similar to how we navigate, you know, like through our iPhone or our iPad. We can actually accomplish quite a bit with just a few gestures here. Okay, so that pretty much covers navigating it on our watch face. So how about we look at a couple of other really useful features that our watch face can give us here.
Now we know that we can find our notification center on our iPhone by performing a three-finger flick down on our screen. Well, it’s very similar on our watch, only we will perform a two-finger flick down instead of our three-finger flick down, so how about we try that? We’ll first need to wake up our watch, of course, for the tap, and then we’ll flick down our screen or watch face here with two fingers. So let’s do that. We’ll just wake our watch.
Voiceover

It’s 1:23 PM.


Douglas Walker

And then we will flick down our screen with two fingers here.


Voiceover

Notification center. Mail. CNET Daily News. Apple Watch sales to reach 36 million in its first year. Analysts predict.


Douglas Walker

Pause it there. You can pause it with a single finger, two finger single tap there, so that’s pretty cool. All right, so we heard our notification center open, and how about we just right flick through it to see what we have here? So there we first we heard an email. So I’ll right flick through the rest of this.


Voiceover

Messages. Kim Walker. I will pick up mail. 1:09 PM.



Douglas Walker

All right, that good to know.


Voiceover

Swipe up or down to select a custom action. Then double tap to activate.


Douglas Walker

My wife is actually going to pick up the mail and that’s nice. Let me flick again, see what else I have here.


Voiceover

Messages. Marvin W. Crosby. 1:15 PM. Attachment. One image.


Douglas Walker

Oaky, so he sent me a text—


Voiceover

Swipe up or down to select a custom action. Then double tap to activate.


Douglas Walker

Oaky, that’s good to know. I can double tap and open that, but I can just flick down, this is kind of neat.


Voiceover

Clear.
Douglas Walker

And I can clear that notification out of my list here, so I will just single finger double tap, and I’ve cleared that list and back to that Kim Walker is going to pick up the mail again. All right, so that’s pretty cool. Let me flick one more time, and there’s our end of list audio cue again. So we know that that that’s the end of our list.
All right. That is pretty cool. Now we can close our notifications by either tapping our digital crown, which we’ll explore in just a bit, or we can perform our scrub gesture to close it. Now, we perform a scrub gesture by swiping two fingers back and forth across our screen. It’ very similar to forming a print letter Z on our screen.
Now, this scrub gesture for us can really be handy because it’s also used to take us back to previous screens in certain places. Such as our settings menu and stuff like that if we’re on the music menu and we want to back up, that scrub gesture’s really nice to know there. Now it’s also important to know that we have the ability to control exactly the types of notification that we will receive by setting them up in our watch app settings that we explored earlier.
Okay, so how about we move on and check out our glances? But first we’ll need to close our notification center. So let’s wake up our watch and scrub away our notification center. Now, it may have closed itself. It has a tendency to do that, but we’ll just see.
Voiceover

It’s 1:25 PM.


Douglas Walker

And it did. But if it were still open we could just do that scrub gesture that we mentioned earlier and scrub it away there. Okay. So we’re back on our watch face. Now, on our iPhone, we can flick up our screen with three fingers. If we want to launch our control center. And our control center as we know gives us quick access to some of our most frequently used settings. Well, glances on our watch is kind of similar to our control center on our iPhone. Our glances give quick access to small snippets or cut down versions of our most frequently used apps, like maybe your settings very similar to the control enter there, or our controls for our music player, which is really handy, or maybe our watch’s battery life that we saw earlier in one of the elements on our watch face there. And maybe even just today’s weather. Like I said, these are very short summaries, so how about we open our glances to see how they all work?


Now to do this, we will just tap our watch’s face, first we have to wake up our watch and then flick up with two fingers. So how about we give it a try? We’ll just touch our watch’s face and then we’ll flick up with two fingers here.
Voiceover

It’s 1:27 PM.


Douglas Walker

We’ll flick up now with two fingers.


Voiceover

Settings. Connected.


Douglas Walker

All right, super. So the first screen that we have in our settings here in our glances, this is our settings, which is really handy to have. Now each one of our glances will have its own screen, and there are actually three different ways that we’re able to move between these glances. One way to move between our glances or these different pages that we have is by using a two-finger flick to the left or to the right. Now, this should be kind of familiar to us, because on our iPhone, we use a three-finger left and right flick to mean, to move between different screens or different pages, so we can sort of think of this in the same way, because we’ll just use two fingers to flick back and forth.


All right, now we’ll also hear our hints announce our second way that we’re able to move between our glances. And we’ll actually discuss that as we flick through our first glance. We’ll also discuss our third way, three ways, of moving through our glances as we explore this first glance, so how about we check out our glances here? We’ll just wake our watch again and just flick through our glances here. So let’s go ahead and wake our watch. I’ll touch its screen here.
