Tuanzebe’s watch was not actually an Apple Watch, it was a fitness tracker watch called Whoop Fitness used by NFL players and professional golfers.
In other words, it is a simple GPS tracking device and control of certain parameters

Tuanzebe surely has an Apple Watch Series 6 at home, but did not jump on the field with him. Although this is strange as this type of monitoring devices are usually not worn on the wrist and other options located on the body are chosen.
We’ve come across some rare stories on the Apple Watch, but not many like this one. Of course, in case you had enabled the Premier League app notifications on your Apple Watch, surely you would have seen that the His side’s 2-1 loss at home to Leicester meant Manchester City had won the title of the league.
