The Apple Watch is an electronic watch from Apple Inc. It has been available to buy in stores and online since early 2015.

The Apple Watch can do things like measure your heartbeat and works like a walkie-talkie when used together with an iPhone 5 or a newer iPhone. It can also access the Internet to download and run apps. Because of this, many people call it a "smartwatch".

The Apple Watch was released on April 24, 2015 and quickly became the best-selling wearable device with 4.2 million sold in the second quarter of 2015.

The second generation of Apple Watches was released in September 2016: the Apple Watch Series 1 and Apple Watch Series 2, while the first generation was discontinued.

The Apple Watch Series 3 was released on September 22, 2017 alongside the discontinuation of the Apple Watch Series 2.

The Apple Watch Series 4 was announced on September 12, 2018.
