Default Official Apple Watch thread

http://www.appy-geek.com/Web/Article...cleid=37287810



Three reasons it may be a game changer:
  • Apple Watch has more features than its rivals. Not only will the watch download emails and handle texts and calls, it will update the user with the latest headlines, have a heart rate monitor and alert the wearer to notifications with a subtle tap on the wrist. Siri and Apple Pay come as standard and there are plans to use the watch as a key for hotel doors and even cars.
  • It has the backing of a powerful brand. Apple has a reputation for quality and has acquired a cult-like following among its many fans. More than 400 stores around the world provide a direct conduit to customers, many of whom are lured in by slick and expensive advertising campaigns.
  • Apple has a track record of revolutionising markets. There were digital music players before the iPod, smartphones before the iPhone and even tablets before the iPad, but most of those products failed to catch on until Apple made devices so appealing they set new standards and created new demand, J.P. Gownder an analyst at Forrester Research said.




Announcement tomorrow so I'm sure a lot of folks are going to pay attention one way or the other because, let's face it, most websites are going to be talking about absolutely nothing else

What am I looking forward to? NFC and Pay support.

And thats pretty much it.

I'm sure there are other things folks are interested in so hopefully we'll have a decent discussion.

ugly and compared to the run of the mill Android watches. The only thing the apple watch has over the others is NFC for tap-n-pay.

I'm hoping for a really solid watch one day, and really most watches are there. Just need a smaller guts/battery. And a big one, WiFi, that would be a killer sale honestly.

BT watch with BT headphones, and some spotfiy while at the gym as it streams over the wifi, all while s-health or some other app is tracking your hr. And still getting msgs/txt/etc. All with out having to have your brick with you.


I know the gear S does this, but you have to buy a separate damn contract as it uses cell-data not wifi.

Pay attention to watch designs after Apple watch comes out.

They're all going to start focusing on straps and all the radial watches are gonna go away and more square watches will come out.

This ugly thing has been announced for almost a year now and the smartwatch makers haven't followed suit. It looks awful, there's really no defending how poorly it's designed.

The only thing I cared about in this, HBO Now, is too much per month for me to care about $14.99/mo is a lot of money for one channel. Who knew the Apple tax would make it to HBO

I thought the app demo was impressive, I don't think android wear can do some of that yet.

Im not watching the stream, but I browsed through Verges live coverage and saw something about a $10,000 version of the watch? Was that a joke?

it's solid gold, not sure how much actual gold but at $1600 an ounce or so that's a pretty expensive material to work with.

I still think its too thick and too expensive. Does it require an iPhone? If it does than thats a huge issue as well.

The new MacBook looks nice, its too bad they couldnt get the Pro line to be that thin.

18hrs of battery life in a typical day, you can't even make it a full day with this thing I would say something about Apple being form over function, but the form on this thing is just subpar for them.

Oh and on the new MacBook.. only 1 USB connector? Its a do-it-all USB connector so it only makes sense to have at least 2. You cannot charge and use an external monitor at the same time.

Uh, no. Consumers have spoken and if you want a wearable, round > square aesthetically. Square has some benefits but round looks and feels a hell of a lot better.

And straps? What? There are tens of thousands of straps on the market already. Having a device that takes advantage of the STANDARD strap sizes and connection methods == win. Custom is fantastic for Apple's margins but does little to nothing for consumers.

The only thing that has impressed me from the first announcement was NFC. That's it. Wear addresses pretty much everything else already, as does Samsung's implementation and Pebble (albeit with buttons rather than touch on the latter).

The Pebble is the only wearable device that does a lot of stuff AND lasts around a week. Wear devices last about 1.5-2 days. This currently lasts about 18 hrs if I am reading the release correctly.

Intriguing device but very, VERY gen 1.

It will still sell like gangbusters, but as always, sales !=a good product.

New android wear devices with NBC will launch this year so the apple watch offers nothing new at a lot higher price point while also having a worse battery.

Yes. Almost all wearables of the Apple Watch type require a connected device for notifications, etc.

I LOVE my watch. I will be buying a 2nd gen device when available, most likely, but folks who don't use wearables may simply not have a use case for them. I do and I love it. The Apple Watch will open a lot of people's eyes to possibilities. But it's a piss poor design and the jury is out on the battery life.

Also the price is high, but consumers will decide if it's worth it or not.

Paying as much as a phone for this is a bit iffy.

I suspect that they wont sell as many because no company is going to be subsidizing the thing like phones. That LG watch above looks way better than the iWatch.
