ValueWalk has reported that Apple Watch 2 will include new gesture controls. The patents include pointing, waving and making a ‘phone me’ gesture with the use of the thumb and the little finger. The text of the patent indicated that this will serve the purpose of providing commands to other devices and any other Apple device that is compatible with this technology.
According to ZDNet the patent for gesture control states that the gesture system has multiple sensors present in both the wearable device and the wrist band.
The watch is going to get even more personal with the sensors picking up movements in the tendons and bones to read hand gestures for input commands.
Apple is boasting that it is the most personal device since it can capture and transmit the heartbeat of the wearer through the veins beneath the wrist band. Apple is trying to extend the sensing capability of the device to other parts of the body including arms, wrist and the fingers to enable their movement to be interpreted as commands.
