Apple Watch With Cellular Officially Launches in New Zealand

Last week, Apple started taking pre-orders for Apple Watch models with cellular connectivity in New Zealand. Those orders are now arriving into the hands of customers, and New Zealand carrier Spark is taking its service for LTE models of ‌Apple Watch‌ live.


Apple is selling Series 3 and Series 5 models with Wi-Fi and Cellular through its online store in New Zealand, with pricing starting at NZ$549 for Series 3 models and NZ$929 for Series 5 models.

Spark is currently the only carrier that offers service for the Apple Watch in New Zealand. For $12.99 a month, Spark’s wearable plan lets you share your iPhone plan’s minutes and texts and get unlimited data on the Watch. And until June 6, 2020, Spark is offering the first three months free.

Other carriers in New Zealand like Vodafone NZ and 2degrees say they’re working to bring eSIM support to customers in New Zealand, but haven’t offered a roadmap or any fixed dates indicating when that might happen.

Orangetheory Fitness Rolling Out Apple Watch Support in Early 2020

Orangetheory Fitness today announced that it will begin rolling out Apple Watch support to its gyms in the first quarter of 2020, eliminating the need to use one of the company’s armbands or chest straps for heart rate tracking.


The fitness chain has created a small accessory called the OTbeat Link that attaches to an Apple Watch band, allowing the Apple Watch to sync with the Orangetheory Fitness in-studio heart rate monitoring system. There will also be a new Orangetheory Fitness app for the Apple Watch to accompany the OTbeat Link.

“Now, not only will members be able to view metrics in real time in class with an Apple Watch, they’ll also be able to see their Orangetheory Fitness workouts afterward in the Activity app,” explains Orangetheory Fitness.

“Apple Watch is designed to help people live a better day by being more active,” said Apple fitness director Jay Blahnik. “With workout tracking, Apple Pay and a new membership program, we are thrilled Orangetheory Fitness is integrating Apple Watch into a comprehensive experience for their customers.”

Orangetheory Fitness has also developed two new iOS apps called OTassist and OTcoach for improved interactions between staff, coaches, and members.

The new OTbeat Link accessory will be priced at $129 on Apple.com and elsewhere.

IDC: Apple’s Wearables Shipments Surged Last Quarter on Popularity of Apple Watch, AirPods, and Beats

Apple’s wearables shipments nearly tripled in the third quarter of 2019 due to the growing popularity of the Apple Watch, AirPods, and Beats headphones, according to research firm IDC.


IDC estimates that Apple shipped 29.5 million wearables last quarter, up from 10 million in the third quarter of 2018. Apple remained the world’s largest wearables vendor, and the launch of the AirPods Pro and discounts on Apple Watch Series 3 models should keep the company in the lead, the research firm said.

Apple does not disclose wearables sales on a product or unit basis, so emphasis should be placed on IDC’s figures being estimates, but all signs do point towards the Apple Watch and AirPods selling very well.


Apple’s “Wearables, Home and Accessories” revenue was a record-setting $6.5 billion in the third quarter of 2019, up 54 percent from $4.2 billion in the year-ago quarter. In addition to the Apple Watch, AirPods, and Beats, the category includes the HomePod, Apple TV, iPod touch, and both Apple-branded and third-party accessories.

AirPods Pro are currently estimated for delivery in January for orders placed on Apple.com, demonstrating how popular the new earphones are, although they remain available at select resellers.

Patent Describes Apple Watch Feature for Improving Treatment of Parkinson’s Disease Symptoms

A newly unearthed patent reveals that Apple is exploring how a future Apple Watch could help doctors monitor the symptoms of Parkinson’s patients.


Spotted by AppleInsider, “Passive Tracking of Dyskinesia/Tremor Symptoms” describes the use of special sensors in a proposed ‌Apple Watch‌ medical feature and the reasoning behind it.

“There are an estimated 600,000 to 1 million cases of Parkinson’s Disease in the United States and 60,000 new cases are diagnosed each year,” reads the filing, which goes on to describe the symptoms sufferers have to live with. “Symptoms of PD include… tremor and dyskinesia. Dyskinesia is an uncontrollable and involuntary movement that can resemble twitching, fidgeting, swaying or bobbing.”

The patent states that dyskinesia and tremors can occur when all of the other features of Parkinson’s Disease are being managed through medication. Unfortunately, the dopamine replacement therapy can also cause more pronounced side effects, and doctors have to rely on in-clinic tests and patient reports to regulate their treatment effectively.

“A patient’s quality of life is largely dependent on how precisely clinicians titrate and schedule the patient’s medications to minimize the patient’s symptoms. This is a challenge for clinicians because each patient has a different combination of symptoms that can change and become more severe over time. Also, in any given day the symptoms may fluctuate based on medications, food intake, sleep, stress, exercise, etc.”

The feature uses motion sensors to monitor the wearer’s movement and the data gathered is analyzed on the device using the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS). According to Apple, this allows the data to be collected more reliably and means the sufferer doesn’t need to keep close track of their symptoms and can better plan activities around symptom patterns.

The image above shows a patient wearing an ‌Apple Watch‌, but the patient doesn’t specify that the feature would be limited to a wrist-based device, suggesting it could make its way into an iPhone, or perhaps even an electronic finger ring.

Nomad Launches Hydrophobic Leather ‘Active Straps’ for Apple Watch

Popular accessory company Nomad has released a new range of premium Apple Watch bands made from hydrophobic leather and designed for “heavy everyday use.”


The new Active Straps are water and sweat-resistant, and feature ventilation channels on the underside of the leather to ensure the bands remain comfortable and breathable during workouts.

Nomad says the bands are “built for sport,” but the look is more formal than sporty, and the bands can be rinsed with water after a workout so they’re ready to wear for a night out.

The new Active Strap ‌Apple Watch‌ bands are available in both black and mocha leather, and customers also have the option to choose between black hardware and silver hardware on the stainless steal accents.


The Active Strap is available for 42mm and 44mm ‌Apple Watch‌ models, in one size that fits wrists ranging from 150mm to 210mm. The Active Strap costs $69.95 and can be ordered on Nomad’s website from today.
