Apple Watch Curious Facts

What is the difference between resetting Apple Watch and erasing Apple Watch?: The process of resetting is similar to the process of restarting Apple Watch, but when you reset the device, you reset key system settings that may have become corrupted. Resetting does not remove data and media files from Apple Watch. When you erase Apple Watch, all the information will be removed. To reset Apple Watch, just press and hold the Side button. When the Power screen appears, wipe the Power Off button to the right to turn off the watch. Next press and hold the Digital Crown and the side button together until the Apple logo appears on the screen.

What is Better – Standard Regular Passcode Or a Long Password?: A four-digit regular passcode is adequate for protection. Apple Watch uses a security mechanism featuring increasing timeouts after multiple failures to enter the correct password. Thus an unauthorized user can’t discover the passcode just by chance, trying each of ten thousand possible four-digit combinations in turn. Professionals however may have cutting-edge tools that try a passcode, and if the attempt fails immediately shut off the device’s power to prevent it from registering the failed attempt. Thus a longer passcode provides better protection. If you need high security, create a long passcode with uses at least eight digits.

Sharing Activity Rings: Apple’s answer to Fitbit, Garmin and the rest of the fitness tracker fraternity is its Activity platform. That’s where all of the daily movements are recorded. In its latest iteration the user can share activity progress with other Apple Watch users. To do it you need to add friends, which has to be done by going to the dedicated Activity app on the paired iPhone. The user can then select Sharing and hit the + icon in the corner to add contacts.
