  • Welcome autumn!

    We can’t stop the time, although many wish for exactly that at the moment. In the northern hemisphere, summer is coming to an end and the next season is ahead. Coldness, wind and darkness are often the first attributes being mentioned in connection with autumn. But isn’t fall about more than that? Finally, one can snuggle into bed with a good book, watch the rain outside while eating cookies, knit cozy sweaters, carve pumpkins, jump into puddles, drink a hot chocolate while wearing fuzzy socks or admire the golden leafs falling to the ground peacefully. Join our list of things we love about the autumn by using the hashtag #whatIloveaboutautumn and get into mood for this cozy season. Due to its choice of color and pattern, our stylish design “Checker Green” is perfect for the fall and the ideal companion during a relaxing walk through the woods. Besides, the WRBLS band “Felt” gives you a feeling of coziness while wearing your Apple Watch. As functionality is one of our priorities, we used a material looking unique, but being suitable for an energetic workout or a warming shower too.

  • Keynote reveals secrets of the Apple Watch 2

    Wednesday night Apple has finally released the second version of the Apple Watch. Thus, the steady speculations came to an end. So on what did Apple set value in the last few months of development?

    The official name of the new version of the Apple Watch is “Apple Watch 2 Series”. Like its predecessor, it will be available in a 38mm and 42mm version and this at a price from 419€. According to Apple, the watch can be purchased as of the 16th of September, 2016.

    Probably one of the most significant changes is that the second version of the Apple Watch is completely water-resistant, making the watch suitable for swimming. Additionally, a dive up to fifty meters is possible.

    Another much discussed topic was the integration of a GPS module. And indeed, the Apple Watch 2 Series will be more independent from the iPhone through an integrated GPS module and a more powerful wireless chip. Services like editing text messages, sending emails and receiving current weather data are possible without a connection to the iPhone. Additionally, in case the watch gets lost, it can be found easily thanks to Apple's new location service "Find my watch”.

    Furthermore, a S2 dual core processor ensures that the new version of the watch is up to fifty percent faster than its predecessor. Besides, many apps will benefit from a doubled graphics performance. Also improved is its screen brightness. According to Apple, the Apple Watch 2 Series contains the brightest display the company has ever used, bringing significant benefits for the use in the sun.

    In addition, Apple has integrated a few new gadgets. The newly installed app "Breathe", for example, reminds the users to take a deep breath during their stressful everyday life. Also motivation among friends is supported as recent runs can be shared, leaderboards created and virtual fist bumps can be sent.

    In general, the design of the Apple Watch 2 Series is very similar to the first version. Apple, however, published two high-end versions of the watch. The Ceramic-Edition will be available from 1,449€ and the Apple Watch Hermes from 1,349€.

    New and definitely surprising for the analysts is a collaboration with Nike. The Apple Watch Nike Plus will be available from October 2016 for a price of 419€. It is specifically designed for runners and therefore relies on a lightweight aluminum housing and a perforated band. But again, the selection of bands is rather disappointing. The few simple designs do not give you the chance to stand out from the crowd.

    But as the watch bands for the Apple Watch 1 fit its successor as well, you can get your new watch a stylish and unique WRBLS band before you even hold the watch in your hands. Make sure that you turn your Apple Watch into a sophisticated fashion-item which perfectly matches each of your outfits and occasions. Get a WRBLS band and wear your Apple Watch 2 Series with style!

  • The Apple Watch 2: What should we expect?

    As you may know, Apple is currently working on the second generation of the Apple Watch. The release date is still unknown but some people speculate that the new generation of the Apple Watch will be presented either in fall 2016 or spring 2017.

    What will be new about the second generation of the Apple Watch?

    According to Bloomberg it will contain a GPS module that makes a more accurate tracking of the user possible. This will benefit many apps such as, for example, the app Runtastic. With the new GPS module, you won't need your iPhone for GPS-adjustment anymore. The Apple Watch 2 will not only be more accurate but thanks to a new processor apps will also run faster. In addition to that, Apple plans to use a barometer that, for instance, provides more accurate information while climbing stairs.

    Longer battery life

    Analysts further expect that the Apple Watch 2 will dispose of a longer battery life. Until now the Apple Watch was just protected against splash water. There are rumors out there that the new generation of the Apple Watch will be completely water-resistant. This will among others benefit users who want to monitor their progress during their swim training.

    Working mostly in combination with the iPhone

    Bloomberg also mention that the Apple Watch 2 will not include a cellular chip. This would have made the watch independent from the iPhone. Unfortunately Apple was not able to manage the battery life yet, the second version of the Apple Watch will, just as its predecessor, be usable in combination with an iPhone. In terms of look the second generation of the Apple Watch is supposed to be a bit slimmer than the first one.

    WatchOS3 making the Apple Watch even times faster

    Just in time for the release of the Apple Watch 2, Apple is expected to launch a new operating system. According to the technology company, WatchOS3 is going to make the watch about seven times faster. New clock faces, apps and gadgets will be made available to users.

    WRBLS will also make bands for the Apple Watch 2

    So, Apple Watch enthusiasts, no matter whether you get yourself the Apple Watch 2 or not, you will benefit from its release - faster operating system and new features. And for the ones who plan to get the Apple Watch 2: Be sure to stay tuned and get your WRBLS for the Apple Watch 2.
