For a better classification. The 28 nanometer chip in the Apple Watch as compared with the A5 processor Apple be, the most recently used of the iPhone 5S iKonzern. In contrast, the current iPhone 6 (plus) tinkers A8 processor, which has a 20 nanometer technology. And it is speculated eagerly as in the rumor mill, Apple continues next iPhone 6S on a A9 chip with 14 nanometer technology.
Current processor is sufficient
But why installed Apple in the Apple Watch an older processor? It is assumed that you have set at the beginning of the development of this component, which now is a bit outdated. Apple will use for sure the next time you watch generation to the new S2 technology, so that the battery consumption and the speed to be optimized.
