Apple Watch's New Button June 08 2018
A future version of the Apple Watch will be updated with solid state buttons that don't physically click but instead use a Taptic Engine to provide haptic feedback to users, reports Fast Company. Apple will continue to use a two button configuration with a Digital Crown and a Side button, but neither button will be a traditional physical button. What Fast Company is describing is the same solid state button design that Apple first introduced with the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus Home button. These devices, and later iPhones with a Home button, use solid state buttons that provide haptic feedback from the built-in Taptic Engine to mimic a button press.
Apple uses a similar method for its MacBook and MacBook Pro trackpads, which also lack physical buttons. Solid state buttons will improve water resistance in the Apple Watch and also take up less space, leaving more room for a bigger battery or other components Fast Company's source also alleges Apple is working on using the top of the buttons as sensors to gather health-related data like heart rhythms as some types of measurements require more than one point of contact with a user's skin.So will this make the Apple Watch more or less effective i guess we will have to wait and see.
