New Apple Watch Will Track Users Activity ‘All Day’

"You probably have no idea what that means, but that's okay. We do."

At the annual Apple product launch event on Wednesday, Apple COO Jeff Williams announced that the new version of the Apple Watch would be able to track the user’s activity all day and could “sample motion data eight times faster.” But Williams did not say how that personal data would be stored.

Williams was explaining the capabilities of the new Apple Watch, which include a next-generation accelerometer and gyroscope that “power important experiences like all-day activity tracking.”

“Series 4 has a next-generation accelerometer and gyroscope with twice the dynamic range, measuring up to 32 g-forces and can sample motion data eight times faster,” Williams said. “You probably have no idea what that means, but that’s okay. We do.”

Williams then touted how the new Apple Watch is able to detect when a user falls and can even place an emergency call, thanks in part to the data that the Apple Watch is collecting.

What Williams failed to mention is how Apple would be storing all the data it collects on individuals who use Apple Watches.

If the new Apple Watch can track the user’s activity all day, can it also track where that individual is at all times?
