Motion sensors are an incredibly important part of any smartwatch, and Apple’s new motion sensor features are one of the most impressive I’ve seen in a smartwatch.
While Apple hasn’t said much about the new motion sensors in the Watch, I suspect we’ll find out more as it’s unveiled at WWDC.
The new motion sensing features are powered by a pair of new chips from Qualcomm.
The first chip is a chip with three different types of sensors that can be used to detect and respond to the physical motion of the wrist.
The sensor types are: an accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass.
All three of these sensors are very sensitive, and it’s possible to detect subtle variations in the way the wrist moves as the device accelerates, decelerates, and tilts.
Qualcomm’s chips are built to be very fast, and the company’s sensors are specifically designed to work with these sensors.
The second chip in the trio is a sensor that is also specifically designed for tracking the motion of a watchband.
This sensor is similar to the one found in the Apple Watch and works on the same chip.
Qualcomm says the chip can track up to 5g of movement per second and up to 50g per second.
Qualcomm also says the sensor can detect up to 100Hz of motion per second, which is faster than the current sensors we’ve seen on the Apple and Samsung devices.
The last chip in Qualcomm’s motion sensor is an embedded accelerometer.
This accelerometer can be paired with the motion tracking chip in order to perform the same functions as the motion sensors mentioned above.
Qualcomm has already announced that the new Qualcomm motion sensor chips will be available in the fourth quarter of next year.
