All Apple Watch models are equipped with a gyroscope, accelerometer, and heart rate monitor. The watch can also use your iPhone's GPS and WiFi module.

How do I control the Apple Watch?
Navigation and control are done through a touch screen and 2 physical buttons. The touch screen of the Apple Watch is equipped with Force Touch technology, so the device can detect pressure and react in different ways.
The main control is "Digital Crown". This is a high-tech version of the wheel on a mechanical watch. The Digital Crown is also turned and pressed, but its functions are similar to the main control button on the iPod. Scrolling the wheel will zoom in or out and pressing will return you to the watch home screen.
Below the "Digital Crown" is a button that opens the "Friends" application. With this application, you can send a message, call or share your heartbeat with a loved one (yes, the watch can do that).
