Apple Have Got a Lot of Things Right

Not in terms of marketing or even with technology specifically. They have got a lot of things right that many standard watch creators have gotten wrong. There are a lot of form and function aspects to consider when you create a watch, and it appears that Apple have put a lot of time and effort into getting it right.


The Cost May Be Just a Little Too High

There are plenty of watches that run up to $500 and people are prepared to pay it. However, at $349, the Apple Watch is rather overpriced. Do not forget that a lot of people are going to view this piece of technology as a toy on your wrist. They have got a lot of details right, but their price tag for a watch is a little high.


There Are Certain Bragging Rights

It is quite possible that people are going to notice your Apple Watch when you are out and about in bars and restaurants. This is a good thing because it will get you a bit of extra attention. Others may just think you’re a salve to fashion.


Most People Simply Use Their Phones

It is clever that Apple has managed to squeeze so much technology and so many functions into such a small device, but the fact is that all the functions may be done on a Smartphone. Most people already use their Smartphone for the functions that the watch offers, so what benefit does the Apple watch offer that a Smartphone doesn’t besides being more compact and being able to strap it to a wrist?


It is Fun to Play with

Let’s face the fact that the Apple watch is a bit of a toy and you are going to want to play with it. Instead of pulling out your phone, you are going to stare at your wrist instead. Maybe it is the way of the future and maybe it will be a fad, but at the end of the day, there is still an electronic toy on your wrist for you to play with.


Apple Have Already Tripped Themselves up

People are so busy anticipating problems and bugs with the first Apple Watch that they are waiting for the Apple Watch 2 to come out before trying it. In a world where a product is nothing if it is not a series, it seems that many are not going to buy the first Apple watch just in case it has bugs, faults or is a fad.


It is a Great Complement to the IPhone

This may not be a very big surprise to some people, but the iPhone and the Apple watch are compatible in numerous ways to the point where some say you are missing out with your watch if you do not have an iPhone. One of the best functions is that you can send a message on social media or via text on your phone, put it in your pocket, and then be alerted by your watch when there is a reply or a notification. It is great for the type of person that interminably takes his or her phone out of his or her pocket to check it.

So what are your thoughts? A passing fad or a must have?

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

Yea, I'm waiting too. I don't have time for all that.

Crazy prices, especially the ones I like - typical! Not sure if I'll get one.

I have to think the first one is more fad than must-have, especially given the price! I agree with amby and Fabi, I waiting till they figure out how to make it really useful, and price reasonably so the average person can afford it. I concede the bragging rights😏

Nice article! I own one and i know how useful it can be!


TECHNOLOGY is gonna be our downfall in life.

there is really no point in this product because you have to have your iphone with you for it to actually text/call/etc.

If only the watch could totally replace the phone why not it you still need to have your phone with you, besides the battery life is pretty bad

More gadgets more money wasted
