Apple watches - Only Time Will Tell



Only 5 million sold




Quote:

In terms of usability, the watch has proven a tough sell. US presidential hopeful and die-hard Apple fan Jeb Bush didn’t even know his Apple Watch could make and receive calls. The tiny screen doesn’t lend itself to complicated interactions, and third-party and native apps have struggled to show that they’re more useful than, say, just looking at the full-fledged apps on your phone.



One of the movers and shakers in the Education department had one. She was showing it off last year and I had to ask what she liked about it and it was mainly the fitness aspect she raved about. I never saw the point of them myself.

Bloke in the office is the same, extolled the step counting and fitness aspects; when I pointed out my lowly fitbit wristband cost a quarter and battery lasted days longer he actually said "but it's not an apple....."
