An Apple Watch can only display five different metrics or performance stats, like your current pace or the distance you’ve run, as you work out—so you can customize which ones you see. You can even set your watch to display just a single important metric. Here’s how. How to Customize Which Metrics You See For every workout type, your watch can track and show: Duration, Active Kilocalories, Total Kilocalories, and Heart Rate. For some workouts, like Outdoor Run or Pool Swim, your watch also tracks (and can display) other more specific, stats like Distance, Current Pace, Elevation gained, and Lengths swam. To change which stats you see on your watch while you workout, open the “Watch” app on your iPhone and go to Workout > Workout View. Under “Workouts,” select the activity you want to customize, then tap “Edit.” The different stats are grouped under “Metrics,” which are displayed when you workout, and “Do Not Include,” which aren’t.

Digital cameras use a sensor that captures light to make a photo. The size of the sensor affects how your images look, so you’ll often see photographers and tutorials referring to crop sensor and full frame sensor cameras. Here’s how to know which you have—and understand the difference. Full Frame vs. Crop Sensor Before digital cameras came along, the most popular film for photography was 35mm format. It’s 36mm x 24mm (1.4 inches x 0.94 inches) in size. Full frame cameras use a digital sensor that’s about the same size as 35mm-format film. This was convenient for transitioning between film and digital, as it kept things as similar as possible.

They’re much larger than what is necessary to take good digital photos, so most consumer cameras use a smaller, cheaper, “cropped” sensor. (For comparison, a full-frame … [Read more...] about Do I Have a Crop Sensor or Full Frame Camera?
