"For such a device, one has to see whether it is treated as a drug under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act read with the Medical Device Rules".

Much has been made since the unveiling this week of the new Apple Watch, which sports an abundance of health-focused features like its fall-detection and the ability to take an electrocardiogram. That gives it a more profound goal, in Ive's vision, and sets it apart from other technology.

Held at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California, Apple's "Gather Round" event is one of the first high-profile events the company has held in its flagship headquarters. Ive, like the former Apple CEO who was his close friend, speaks of Apple innovations with fervor. The new phone is about the size of the existing iPhone 8 Plus, but with more screen. Apple says such sensors can analyze wrist trajectory and impact acceleration.

United Kingdom slams 'deeply offensive' interview with Skripal poisoning suspects
In a translation from Russian, the pair told RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan they worked in the fitness industry. Investigators say Novichok, the nerve agent used in the attack, was carried in a fake Nina Ricci perfume bottle.

Here are the three most important additions that may open the door to a new generation of health apps. But the watch, which isn't even four years old yet, has established itself as a significant adjacent business. The device is said to run for up to 18 hours on regular use.

Apple Watch has managed to stay pretty prominent in the wearables industry throughout its lifetime. There's no sense in ignoring Apple's relevance.

Another subtle change comes on the backside of the watch. You're encouraged to share the results and consult with your doctor; you can send over a PDF with the ECG waveforms. With the upcoming annoncment of a new Apple Watch, I am wondering whether smart watches are for everyone.

It has taken time for the watch to gain traction. The original version featured a heart-rate sensor that fed data into fitness and workout apps so they could suggest new goals and offer digital "rewards" for fitness accomplishments.

Nintendo Online paid service starts next week, Nintendo Direct tomorrow
The rumors were true: The postponed Nintendo Direct has been rescheduled for Thursday, 9/13 for 3 p.m. These will include Super Mario Bros , Ice Climbers , and the original Legend of Zelda .

Then the letters began pouring in. These technologies are advanced enough to detect if a user suffers from a fall, and will alert the user's emergency contacts using the built in S.O.S. feature if they don't get back up quickly.

The material available for the watch is aluminum or stainless still. Now, it seems that Apple is all set to improve the battery life of the watches, but it may not have a bigger battery to increase the battery life. The Digital Crown was redesigned, having the click feedback when the dial is turned.

Still, the clinical capabilities of smartwatches are in question. It can classify if the heart is beating in a normal pattern or whether there are signs of Atrial Fibrillation (AFib), a heart condition that could lead to major health complications.
