does anyone know? thanks..
ps. i did go to the site
Good to know. I'm hiking killie and want to make sure I don't trash my watch.
It took my watch from sea level to 13,000 feet and back down several times today with no issues.
The operational altitude of other iThings is "tested up to 10,000 feet".
Only really applies to tech with platter based drives, fan cooled cpu's and seems to have stuck round like a bad smell
I don't think apple cares if you have an attitude or not; they'll sell you a watch.
Never thought of this. I'll be bringing mine up some 14,000 foot peaks this summer.
I'll be heading up Kili in a month's time: hoping to use my watch and a pebble battery charger to monitor the activity... Anyone taken an iPhone up Kili or higher at all? Any problems...?
I was going to say, the temperature specs are identical for the iDevices, so I would expect the altitude specs to be similar.
I wouldn't expect oxygen and air pressure to have much effect on the internals, except perhaps the taptic engine.
Anyone aboard the International Space Station have one or is expecting one?
test out the space grey in space
Very cheap electronics, both commercial and homemade, at regularly sent to altitudes in excess of 32 km (105,000 ft) and returned with no ill effects.
The only problem you will likely have is that it probably will be cold enough to want gloves and iPhone touch screens don't work with gloves on.
Actually I have a pair of gloves that allow me to use my phone with them on. However, I don't think they will protect my hands much in space.
Since my gloves exist it means that actual space gloves could be made to work in space if there were really a need for them.
I never understood the name "space gray".. for starters - space isn't gray. Second, for such a specific color name, it's a different shade of gray on each different device.
just a marketing term
"Air pollution gray" make more sense
cause 'space and grey' sounds silly
I've no intention of doing much with phone or watch at altitude: phone will be to allow the watch to sync every day or so, watch to track the activity but not really interact with per se. Those tasks can be accomplished in the tent I hope, so no need for special gloves (though I do have some Gore running gloves with touch fingers which could be used as undergloves).
Question was more for comparison: assuming similar performance in the electronics then if someone's taken an iPhone up to that height then the watch ought to survive fine...?
Have you thought about a way to charge them? The phone probably would last that long, I've gotten close to a week out of an iPhone while traveling and only occasional use for pictures, but the watch won't last that long without a charge.
We need a high altitude balloon test done on it, and a massive free fall drop test
I am issued an iPad for work to use as an EFB (electronic flight bag). iPads have been tested to work up to 51,000 feet or higher.
This article is a bit dated, as we are going to be issued iPad Air 2 in the near future as an upgrade to our iPad 2 devices.
It is hard to imagine the watch having any issues with working at even extreme altitudes while on the ground.
