The 1st-generation Apple Watch, retroactively referred to as Series 0, was announced during a special event on September 9, 2014, along with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.[1] This first series was released on April 24, 2015 in 3 editions, Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch Edition.[2] The Sport collection cases are made from lightweight anodized aluminum in silver, gold and space gray. The display is protected by strengthened Ion-X glass. And the matching fluoroelastomer bands have over 15 colors and also come shipped with Woven Nylon Bands.


The original Apple Watch uses the single-core Apple S1 system-on-chip. It does not have a built-in GPS chip, instead relying on a paired iPhone for location services. It uses a linear actuator called the "Taptic Engine" to provide haptic feedback when an alert or a notification is received, and is used for other purposes by certain apps.[3] The watch is equipped with a built-in heart rate sensor, which uses both infrared and visible-light LEDs and photodiodes.[4] All versions of the first-generation Apple Watch have 8 GB of storage; the operating system allows the user to store up to 2 GB of music and 75 MB of photos. When the Apple Watch is paired with an iPhone, all music on that iPhone is also available to be controlled and accessed from the Apple Watch.[5] Software support for the original Apple Watch series ended with watchOS 4.3.2.
