Good Morning America today provided us with our first glimpse into Apple’s secretive Apple Watch testing facility. Though Apple is notoriously stringent, if not downright paranoid, when it comes to product secrecy, they granted ABC cameras unprecedented access to their top secret health and fitness lab.
For nearly two years, Apple employees served as volunteers, human guinea pigs if you will, participating in a number of physical activities in order to better calibrate the Apple Watch’s ability to gather and interpret exercise data. From rowing and yoga to intense treadmill running, the Apple Watch was put through an assortment of high and low intensity workouts. As one might expect, the Apple employees were not specifically aware of the device they were helping to test.
