Apple's respiratory aims

And finally: Apple Watch Series 3 takes a breath and more

If we told you that the next-gen Apple Watch could be capable of: "Measuring respiration rate with multi-band plethysmography," you'd probably say, "Eh?".

But while we're still not sure what plethysmography is, despite a solid five minutes Googling it, we do know - courtesy of the guys at Patently Apple - is that Apple has a patent involving respiration rates that could find its way to being a feature on the next Apple Watch.

Honor's connected trio

And finally: Apple Watch Series 3 takes a breath and more

The Honor Smart Bracelet 3 has gone live in China, alongside the Honor Smart Scale and an Honor Smart Environment Monitor.

Honor, in case you didn't know, is an off-spin of Huawei but, unlike its parent company, it focuses on budget tech - essentially taking on Xiaomi.

As such, there's no ground breaking features to write-home about with the Smart Bracelet 3 - but you are getting plenty of bang for you buck... 269Yuan (about $40) for NFC and a slick looking AMOLED screen for starters.

The Bracelet 3, along with the Smart Scale and Smart Environment Monitor are all going on sale in China soon.

Strava giving up too much?

And finally: Apple Watch Series 3 takes a breath and more

According to the Wellington Police, in New Zealand, bike thefts are on the up because people are revealing too much about their cycle's locations on apps like Strava. According to stuff.co.nz, Wellington has seen a big spike in bike thefts over the past few months, described by police as "very widespread and very opportunistic".

"The less that is shared online, the safer people could be," Wellington area prevention manager Inspector Clint Walker said. "Unfortunately, it's not uncommon for thieves to search through publicly available details."

He advised that cyclists change their privacy settings on apps like Strava, to mask their home address and work place, which could otherwise be revealed.
