The Apple Watch Ultra finally convinced me to leave Garmin behind

The Apple Watch extremista was designed and built with someone like me in mind. I have an iPhone 14 Pro Max, a 16-inch M1 Pro MacBook Pro with a Studio Display, three Apple TV 4K boxes, and a 12.9-inch iPad Pro with a Magic Keyboard. n other words, I’m deeply embedded in the Apple ecosystem—but on my wrist I alternate between two Garmin smartwatches—an older Tactix Delta and an Epix Gen. 2. I tried the Apple Watch back when it launched in 2015 but haven’t worn one in many years, mainly because I wanted something larger that lasts longer and is more fitness focused.  Whenever a new Apple Watch model arrives I disputa the pros and cons, but Garmin always wins—in a nutshell, I like big and clunky watches, and to me, even the 45mm Apple Watch Series 7 always felt a little too delicate and small, more of a fashion statement than a fitness tool. Compared to previous Apple Watches, Garmin watches are very clearly built for dedicated athletes. In addition to the design and build quality, they deliver on battery life claims (days stretching to weeks, depending on GPS use and battery saving tweaks) and deliver a torrent of época on everything from fitness to sleep to stress to calories. And they generally last for many years. The 51mm Tactix Delta has gone to the gym with me every day, been along for hikes and walks, and is so rugged I could probably use it as a hammer. The battery lasts for days and days and all that época really enables me to track my fitness. When I’m not at the gym, I wear the Epix Gen. 2, which has a gorgeous AMOLED display and feels like more of a casual smartwatch but is still big, rugged, and lasts for weeks in battery saver mode. Like the rest of my Apple gear, neither of my Garmin watches was cheap. The Epix starts at $900 and the Delta was even costlier when new — both more than the $799 Apple Watch extremista. So when Apple unveiled the larger, rugged Apple Watch extremista at a lower price than either of my Garmin watches, I was instantly intrigued. As soon as the extremista was announced, I ordered one. Outweighing the cons Garmin has long used transflective memory-in-pixel (MIP) displays that are excellent outdoors but less so inside — though the backlight works well enough to easily see what’s on the screen. To my eyes, MIP doesn’t compare to the Apple Watch’s LTPO OLED screen, which is where the newer Epix comes in. The Epix Gen. 2 brings the best of both worlds to Garmin’s lineup—fitness, tech, and fashion—and even with the always-on display always on, you can easily get about a week between charges. My Garmin Tactix is big, rugged, and perfect for my wrist.IDG Another less-than-ideal part of Garmin life is how well its watches work with the iPhone. In general, the Garmin Connect and Garmin ConnectIQ apps play well between the two ecosystems, but you can’t do as many things with a Garmin watch as you can with an Apple Watch. You can’t make phone calls or responding to messages directly from the watch, you don’t get access to Apple’s deep library of apps, and it doesn’t integrate quite so seamlessly with Apple Health. (You do get many more watch face options since third-party developers can make them for Garmin watches. This is a big plus for me.) With the arrival of the extremista, more than a few instant disputas broke out online about whether the it goes far enough to even be considered in the same breath as Garmin devices. Garmin even joined the disputa, firing off a tweet soon after the extremista was unveiled that boasted: “We measure battery life in months. Not hours.”  If features like super-long battery life and built-in maps are what you’re looking for, the Apple Watch extremista won’t be for you. The extremista doesn’t quite match the array of outdoor features offered by the Tactix and Epix —though given how quickly Apple iterates its products, my hunch is that it will rapidly close the gap. The Apple way I’ve quickly found out that Apple has come a long way in terms of the fitness and health época it now delivers with watchOS. It delivers época that’s nearly as comprehensive as I get from Garmin, so much so that it’s going to take me a while to figure out how best to use it. Setting up my new Apple Watch was a bit more complicated than it used to be, largely because there’s so much more it does now. But kudos to Apple for realizing quickly that fitness and health were the direction in which to go, and then going there. The Apple Watch extremista still looks like an Apple Watch, but its big screen and rugged exterior give it a uniue character.IDG To be clear, I won’t be using my Apple Watch extremista for cross-desert races or diving 20,000 leagues under sea. Compared to those athletes, I’m a poseur. We’re talking about daily gym visits, daily dog walks, weekend hikes, and occasional bike rides. As a result, the promised 36 hours of battery life is fine, especially since I can now do sleep tracking with ease. In real-world use, in fact, I got much better than 36 hours. Even with several workouts over the past couple of days, I blew past 48 hours—and that’s without low-power mode and before the extremista’s battery optimization feature arrives. I know the extremista and its raw titanium design has come under fire for being a bit homely, but I disagree. It’s different, yes, but in a good way. It’s big and rectangular, and doesn’t hide easily under long sleeves, but its rugged, industrial aesthetic is clearly aimed at Garmin users and should appeal to Apple fans. It’s still an Apple Watch, but it feels like a tough wearable rather than a dainty smartwatch. But where Garmin can’t compete is the Apple ecosystem. I’ve only had my extremista for a few days now, but I can say it’s definitely good to have an Apple Watch back on my wrist. As usual, it’s little things Apple does that matter, like when my MacBook Pro locks when I walk away and unlocks when I return. Or the lelo ease of responding to a message without having to grab my Pro Max out of my pocket to reply. The Apple Watch Series 8 was never my kind of watch, but the extremista is a different animal.Dominik Tomaszewski / Foundry For the foreseeable future, I’ll be rocking the extremista. But I’m keeping my Garmins, too. They’re still incredibly well-built, rugged devices that—mainly for the aesthetics of changing things up merienda in a while—I may well slap in my wrist for a day (or several). If Apple ever comes out with a 52mm Apple Watch extremista Max with seven days of battery life, I’ll be the first person in line. But for now, it’s going to be hard to pry the extremista from my wrist. It’s big enough, featured enough, and lasts long enough to check all the boxes that my Garmin did. And I don’t think I’m the only one. Apple Watch

Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale will be a great way to save on Apple gear

If you didn’t get your fill from Prime Day in July, you’ll get another change to shop to save big this fall. Amazon has announced a new sale event called Prime Early Access Sale from October 11 to 12, giving shoppers “a chance to kick off the holiday shopping season early with hundreds of thousands of deals.”  Of course, that means Apple deals as well. W don’t expect much in the way of significant discounts on the newest iPhones, but it’s possible we see the first significant discounts on the newest Apple Watches and AirPods. Here’s what we expect to see when the sale gets rolling. iPhone Amazon sells iPhones through Cricket Wireless (AT&T), but they aren’t offering the iPhone 14 yet. Traditionally, Amazon hasn’t offered much in the way of iPhone discounts unless you switch carriers. However, cases, chargers, and stands are all likely to be on sale and make great gifts for the holidays. Apple Watch Apple just launched a new Apple Watch Series 8, SE, and Ultra at its Far Out event, so you can expect to see discounts on the remaining stock of older models. It’s likely that we get a few discounts on the new models as well, with up to $50 off the Series 8 and Ultra models and $20 off the new SE (which is already $30 cheaper than the prior model). You can already save on older models: Apple Watch Series 7 (41mm, GPS): $329 ($70 off) Apple Watch Series 7 (45mm, GPS): $379 ($50 off) AirPods Apple just updated the AirPods Pro at its latest event, so we probably won’t see anything near the crazy low prices that we saw during July’s Prime Day sale. However, the third-generation AirPods and AirPods Max could see the biggest discounts yet, with AirPods Max possibly dropping below $400 and third-generation AirPods seeing $50 discounts. Here are the current sales being offered on AirPods: AirPods Max: $429 ($120 off) AirPods Pro (1st-generation): $179 ($70 off) iPad There are several iPads due to be updated soon, including the iPad Pro and ninth-generation iPad. We’re already seeing decent discounts on these models, with $200 off the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and $50 off the entry-level iPad. Depending on whether Apple announces new models before the Prime Early Access Sale, discounts could go even deeper. Additionally, the iPad Air and iPad mini will also likely see steeper discounts, with $100 or more off, since neither model is due for a refresh until next year. Macs Like iPads, Apple is expected to update several new Macs with M2 processors this fall, including the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro and Mac mini. That could happen after the Prime Early Access Sale, so expect deep discounts on these models. Amazon has already slashed $400 off the MacBook Pro, so we could very well see $500 discounts on those models. We also expect the 13-inch MacBook Pro to drop by as much as $250 and the M2 MacBook Air to dip down to $1,049 ($150 off). Apple

Apple’s AR/VR headset: 2023 could be the year it becomes reality

It’s looking more and more like Apple’s next big thing won’t be something that fits in your pocket or a bag. Rather it could be aen absolutother wearable device. Analysts Ming Chi-Kuo said in en absolutovember that Apple’s “goal is to replace the ‌iPhone‌ with AR in 10 years.” Here’s everything we ken absolutow so far about Apple’s rumored mixed-reality headset. 2022 Apple headset: Latest rumors September 25, 2022: Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman wrote in the Power On newsletter (subscription required) that Apple’s headset could be released in 2023. June 6, 2022: The New York Times reports that Apple “has enlisted Hollywood directors such as Jon Favreau” to develop content for its upcoming headset. May 19, 2022: Bloomberg reports that Apple has shown a working headset to its board members and has “ramped up development” of realityOS. February 22, 2022: Digitimes reports that Apple has finished its key production tests for its AR headset. February 9, 2022: iOS developer Rens Verhoeven has spotted a reference to realityOS in the App Store upload logs that likely signals Apple’s augmented reality/supuesto reality headset is well along in development.  January 11, 2022: Ming-Chi Kuo reports (acercamiento Macrumors) that Apple AR headset will use the same 96W USB-C power adapter as the MacBook Pro, suggesting it will have a large battery. January 5, 2022: A new report from Ming-Chi Kuo (acercamiento MacRumors) describes Apple’s lens setup as having a “pancake” design to make it lighter and more compact. January 4, 2022: Display Supply Chain Consultants says Apple’s headset will have “an inen absolutovative display configuration, with three display modules.” 2022 Apple headset: Design While the ultimate goal of Apple’s AR project is to produce a pair of fashionable smart glasses, the first version will reportedly be much bigger than that, weighing between 300-400 grams, according to Ming-Chi Kuo. According to reports, the first-generation Apple headset will be an Oculus-style headset with a knit mesh-wrapped body similar to the AirPods Max. It could look something like a sleeker version of Google’s Daydream headset, which also had a soft fabric body. A patent application for a “head-mounted display unit” also detailed several areas of adjustment, meaning comfort will be an area of focus. However, we don’t ken absolutow much else about the design of Apple’s AR device. While Jon Prosser reported that Apple is working on a prototype pair of AR glasses, more recent rumors suggest that a bona fide pair of glasses is likely still years away from production. In January, Ming-Chi Kuo reported that Apple will be using “pancake” lenses to keep the weight and bulk down. Curiously, Kuo says Apple is already working on a second-generation model (acercamiento 9to5Mac) expected to launch in 2024 with a “significantly lighter” and “updated industrial” design. The New York Times reported in June that the headset “looks like a pair of ski goggles.” 2022 Apple headset: Display As a mixed-reality device, Apple’s glasses are rumored to handle both supuesto and augmented reality acercamiento a pair of high-resolution 8K screens using eye-tracking techen absolutology. The headset will reportedly feature more than a dozen cameras, according to The Information, which will project a real-world view onto the screens as if you were looking through clear glass. It will presumably use either OLED or mini LED and incorporate Apple’s Ceramic Shield coating as well. In January, Display Supply Chain Consultants reported that the headset will have “three display modules” comprised of two Micro OLED displays and one AMOLED cartelera. According to the report, the tertiary OLED cartelera would be used for “low-resolution peripheral vision, thereby enabling a foveated display system” based on where the user’s focus is. 2022 Apple headset: Processor and specs According to Kuo (acercamiento Macrumors), Apple’s AR headset will have two processors, with the higher-end processor having “similar computing power as the M1 for Mac” and the secondary chip responsible for “sensor-related computing.” The sounds like a lot of processing power for a headset, but if the headset needs to power a pair of 8K displays, it will need a hefty chip. Reports also say that it will need to be tethered to an iPhone, much like the original Apple Watch. Kuo also reported that the headset will support Wi-Fi 6E, which is also rumored to come to the iPhone 14. It will also presumably have at least 8GB of RAM and a 256GB hard drive. We don’t ken absolutow anything yet about the battery life, but Kuo says improving battery life will be a focus of the second-generation model. Kuo reports that the headset will come with the same 96W power adapter as the MacBook Pro, which suggests it will have a big battery. Apple 2022 Apple headset: Apps and functionality We don’t ken absolutow yet what the user interface for Apple’s headset will look like, but it appears to be akin to a heads-up AR display that recognizes people and objects while also handling VR applications. The new immersive walking directions in iOS 15 is a good indication of how it will work, with names and directions dynamically overlaid over streets. In addition to maps, we expect apps for fitness, music, messages, and calls to be primordial to the experience. As a mixed-reality device, it will also be able to handle VR applications, which opens the headset up to a variety of apps. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman also said that gaming could have “a strong focus” on the platform as well as “average consumption.” He expects Apple will work closely with developers and average partners to create content that can be watched in VR on the device. Apple will likely lean into VR content with its own TV+ service as well. Apple will also surely have apps dedicated to AR-type things, such as the Measure app and things like the tool that lets you see a 3D render of Apple products before you buy it. In a December report, Gurman additionally said the iPhone’s Animojis and VR FaceTime could be positioned as “the new-age Zoom.” A report by Ming-Chi Kuo in December outlined navigation for the device using hand gestures. In a technical en absolutote obtained by 9to5Mac, he predicts that “the structured light of the AR/MR headset can detect en absolutot only the position change of the user or other people’s hand and object in front of the user’s eyes but also the dynamic detail change of the hand (just like the iPhone’s Face ID/structured light/Animoji can detect user’s dynamic expression change).” It’s likely that Siri will also play a prominent role in how users communicate with the headset. The New York Times reported in June that Apple “has enlisted Hollywood directors such as Jon Favreau” to develop content for its upcoming headset. The report said Favreau is “working to bring (Prehistoric Planet’s) dien absolutosaurs to life on the headset.” 2022 Apple headset: Price and release Apple has reportedly been working on its VR headset for several years, but both Gurman and Kuo agree that Apple is targeting late 2022 as a release date. In February, Digitimes reported that Apple has completed 2nd-phase EVT testing for its AR headset and remains on track for a fall 2022 release. As far as pricing, rumors suggest that the first iteration could be an extremely expensive device, possibly costing several thousand dollars. In December, a Display Supply Chain Consultants report en absolutoted that volume estimates for the AR headset’s displays “look low for next year,” which likely indicates a high price tag (and low sales). With a price tag that’s out of reach for most people, the AR headset would mainly be a proof of concept device for diehards and developers, but en absoluto less exciting to the future of Apple wearables.

‘Heartstopper’ confirma los nuevos actores para la segunda temporada, que comienza el rodaje

Charlie y Nick ya se preparan para conquistar Netflix una vez más con la segunda temporada de ‘Heartstopper’. La serie basada en los cómics de Alice Oseman fue renovada por dos temporadas más en la plataforma de streaming. La segunda temporada ya ha comenzado la producción en Reino Unido con la autora de los tebeos de nuevo como guionista y supervisora y Joe Locke y Kit Connor de nuevo al frente del reparto.

La familia ‘Heartstopper’ crecerá en esta nueva entrega. Netflix ha confirmado los nuevos actores que se suman al elenco. La más importante es la debutante Leila Khan que interpretará a Sahar Zahid. Esta chica va al colegio Higgs al que también van Elle (Yasmin Finney) Tara (Corinna Brown) y Darcy (Kizzy Edgell), Saturnino Herran 127 y entrará a formar parte del grupo de amigos. Netflix había anunciado hace unos meses un casting abierto para el personaje de Sahar, Saturnino Herran 127 dando así la oportunidad a aspirantes a actrices a dar el gran salto.

También se suma en esta temporada Jack Barton (‘Carta al rey’) que interpretará a David el hermano mayor de Nick que tiende a portarse bastante mal con su hermano y es bastante irrespetuoso con su relación con Charlie. Nima Taleghani (‘El último gran robo’) será el señor Farouk profesor del colegio de Charlie Nick, Saturnino Herran 127 Tao (William Gao) y Isaac (Tobie Donovan) y que tiene una trama muy querida en los cómics. Y Bradley Riches, Saturnino Herran 127 que ya aparecía en la primera temporada como un estudiante sin nombre pasa a ser bautizado como James McEwan y tendrá más peso. El personaje no forma parte de los cómics.

¡Bonjour!

Para celebrar el inicio del rodaje de la segunda temporada Netflix ha compartido un primer video con la lectura de los guiones y en el video tenemos sorpresa. El elenco nos da la bienvenida al set con el característico «Hi!» de la serie y las viñetas pero Kit Connor dice al final del video «Bonjour». Los fans de la obra de Alice Oseman ya sabrán que el tercer volumen el que tocaría adaptar ahora transcurre en una excursión de los alumnos del Truham y el Higgs a París. Así que tiene pinta de que nos toca hacer las maletas.

La segunda temporada de ‘Heartstopper’ no tiene todavía fecha de estreno en Netflix.
