Strava fitness app arrives for Apple Watch Series 2

23 February, 2017, 00:44 | Author: Jan Cross

The company is considering stopping production for Apple and focusing on 3D sensor based touch panels for smartphones.

TPK Holdings has supplied the touchscreens for the watch since the device hit the market in 2015.

The report, which focuses on supplier TPK Holding, reveals that Apple is abandoning the glass panel technology that it has used for the Apple Watch thus far in favor of something new. However, we already have an idea of what it's going to be like, thanks to a new report that details the significant improvements coming to Series 3.

However, we now have new reports which claim that the company will make a switch to a different type of display for the Apple Watch series 3 smartwatches.

Dana White drops big news on Georges St-Pierre next fight
In October, St-Pierre declared himself a free agent, after his lawyer, James Quinn, terminated his UFC contract. Bisping has expressed his interest in the fight and Georges reportedly wants it too.

It has been reported that Apple will be turning it heads towards General Interface Solutions, a company which is based out of Taiwan or maybe Biel Crystal Manufactory, based out of Hong Kong. This time, however, it'll use a glass film (G/F) touch solution instead of the same old TOL.

Alternatively, for non Apple Watch users, Strava also announced, earlier this month, its Android Wear 2.0 app, which is meant to allow the same functionality for Android based devices.

Keep in mind though that the new version of Strava supports Apple Watch Series 2 only. With this feature, the wearable tech can operate as a fully independent device, rather than being connected to a smartphone most of the time. Hence it looks like Apple has made a decision to move to a completely different form of panel for the Apple Watch Series 3. It will likely come in a range of models, colors, and a choice of straps too. We suspect Apple won't want to lose ground there.

What are your expectations from the third generation of Apple Watch?
