Huawei Watch D revealed with elusive blood pressure feature

With smartwatches becoming mini health clinics, it was really only a matter of time before the most elusive feature finally got implemented.

Although it took a while, smartwatches are finally becoming more advanced and are finding their true calling.

Apple Watch AssistiveTouch enables control with one-hand gestures

Like most consumer electronics, smartwatches have been made and designed for the majority of people. Although worn only on one wrist, the smartwatch often requires a hand from the opposite arm to navigate the user interface.

Fortunately, the Apple Watch has accessibility features that makes it possible to use the smartwatch with just one hand, giving wearers almost magical abilities to control the device.
