user13371 Posted September 9, 2014 Share Posted September 9, 2014 (edited) The newest iPhone includes a separate "motion" processor and a barometric altimeter. New display technology said to improve viewing angles, may improve outdoor readability. Battery life considerably longer than current models - which I don't doubt, but I won't believe any specific numbers until they've been proven in the field. The Apple Watch lets you access a lot of the phone's data (including GPS directional prompts for turns) without taking the phone out of your pocket. It's also a fitness tracker including HRM. But I can't find anything in the specs yet mentioning water-resist or water-proof. The Apple Watch surely needs to be - sure hope the phone is too. Yes, this is a GPS and geocaching related subject because features extend overlap into things the GPSRs do for us now. Main reason an eTrex20 is on my handlebars is because the iThings aren't weatherproof. Edited September 9, 2014 by user13371 Quote Link to comment
