Big, beautiful photos of the Apple Watch

On Monday Apple revealed more details about its smartwatch, the Apple Watch.

The Apple Watch will debut two different watch sizes in three distinct styles: the Apple Watch, the Apple Watch Sport, and the Apple Watch Edition.

Preorders begin April 10 and the Apple Watch launches officially on April 24. 

You’ll only be able to use the Apple Watch with iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, and iPhone 5S.

Tim Cook says the Apple Watch provides 'new, intimate ways to connect and communicate' from your wrist.

Now, let's take a look at how the Apple Watch works. The main piece of functionality on Apple Watch comes from the crown. Cook calls it a 'digital crown,' and it's used to zoom in and out or to scroll. You can press the crown to go back to the home screen.

When you raise your wrist, the display turns on.

The homescreen is a series of dots. Each dot is an app. The watch is touchscreen, so you can swipe.

The Apple Watch also has a magnetic charger.

Here's a better view.

The heartbeat feature uses a built-in pulse sensor to send your heartbeat to a friend or loved one.

There are two health apps, called Fitness and Workout. They track your heartbeat, and count calories, distance, and duration.

The Workout app sets goals for you that are based on your workout history.

During your workout, the app sends encouraging reminders to keep you moving.

You can also unlock achievements in the Workout and Activity apps when you reach a personal best.
