It even requires less battery power.The M7 knows exactly when you’re running, walking, or even driving! For example, Maps switches from driving to walking turn-by-turn navigation if, you park and continue on foot. Because the M7 can tell when you are in a moving vehicle, the phone won’t ask you to join Wi-Fi networks as you walk by some.
