The Cupertino giant Apple has just released a video showcasing a new feature for its Apple Watch. This new feature named AssistiveTouch uses a patented technology by the company called wrist gesture technology to help specially-abled Apple Watch users.
The AssistiveTouch is designed for users with disabilities related to mobility, vision, and hearing. In addition, this feature echoes the Apple philosophy – accessibility is a human right. This would help millions of Apple Watch users who might face some form of physical challenges in their life.
This feature will be rolled out via software updates and help differently-abled people to navigate Apple Watch with ease. The Apple Watch is navigated with the help of touch and haptic buttons. It will take the help of built-in sensors which includes a gyroscope, accelerometer, and optical heart rate sensor.
The update will give Apple Watch the ability to detect slight movements in muscles and tendon. In this way, differently-abled people move across the UI of the Apple Watch using various hand gestures such as a pinch or clench.
