Apple is continuing to look into how to improve its wearable devices, including using precise location and orientation data to adjust how audio is delivered, and to better utilize biometric sensors within the Watch, AirPods or similar devices by using EMG sensors to measure muscle movements.
Apple is continuing to research how it can measure the health of a wearer non-invasively and conveniently, and continues to assess the utility of the Apple Watch band as a location for medical sensors.
As they do throughout the year, Apple has refreshed their case and Apple Watch accessory colors for the season. There are now three new colors of Apple's silicone iPhone XS/XS Max cases and Apple Watch Sports Bands, and three new Nike options as well.
Microsoft has pulled its Band fitness trackers from its online store, and confirmed that it won't have a new model out in 2016, suggesting that the company is rethinking its approach to a wearables market largely dominated by Fitbit and Apple.
