Apple Watch put to test on “World’s First Swim App” video

The World’s First Swim App tested on the Apple Watch

A few London-based iOS developers have created the "World's first swim app on the Apple Watch," and have also tested it in under the water. The biggest curiosity which surrounded the release of Apple Watch was that if it would be water resistant or not? Many people had already tested the Apple watch on some initial level with water prior to this video.

Ted Bradley and team, who prior to this designed an app similar to this for Pebble, transplanted a lapping, time, and heart rate checking swim application on Apple Watch. The designers put each smart watch to the same test, swimming four full lengths of the London Aquatic Center's 50 meter pool. The test demonstrated fruitful, with the Apple Watch reflecting the Pebble's consequences of a four lap, 200 meter swim. Apple's smart watch even kept on measuring heart rate effectively, rising from a beginning 88bpm to 138bpm promptly after the test wrapped up.

The only drawback for the application is that the Apple Watch encounters a small bit of slack when awakening to look at lap times, the designers clarifying that just when the screen is wakeful can the application go through the information tests gathered from the swim and take a few moments to parse through the data and present it on screen.

Ted Bradley also wished that should Apple develop a full water-proof watch. He said: “We really hope that Apple see the demand for an official, fully waterproofed Apple Watch. Once that is available, we’ll be able to ship a fully featured swimming app.”
