The Apple Watch

Posted by on October 14, 2014 | No Comments

Following on from the much anticipated iPhone 6, Apple announced their new ‘Apple watch’ (as opposed to ‘iWatch’). It may be a wonderful gadget, but is it a useful business tool?

Previously, smart watches have not taken off in the sense that they have failed to be regarded as an essential accessory up there with the smart phone. One notable smart watch is the Moto360 which has previously been labelled as ‘trying to do too much’.

Does this mean that Apple could enter and dominate the market with their brand? Well, the biggest selling point for the Apple Watch seems to be its ability to monitor your health and personal fitness, and notifying you of e-mails (although it’s not recommended you try to read them on there). The major criticism of it is that it needs an iPhone to work in conjunction with, rather than as a stand-alone accessory.

If you’re still keen to get your hands on the Apple Watch however, you won’t be looking at getting it any sooner than early 2015. We’ll keep you posted.
