Apple removes sensors from smartwatch

Apple reportedly had some sensors removed from its new smartwatch after discovering that arm hair was obstructing its functioning.

However, the company figured that strap tightness, skin types and hair issues disrupted the smartwatch's accurate readings and decided to have the sensors removed. The smartwatch will be launched in April and the device and will be fitted with some fitness aids including heart rate monitor and activity tracking, the report added.
