re: Apple iWatch: Readers Speak Out
I will say that when I first read about the iwatch I was highly skeptical. After reading this article there are some interesting points that I did not consider that would make this watch a desired item. First off I agree with Reader Bry, that it is not very professional to check your phone for the time. The people who are in your company do not know that you are just checking the time and might come off as unprofessional and disrespectful. Secondly I also agree with Jeff and that if you continue to pull your $200-600 phone out in public where people are preying on people who are unsuspecting, using your phone for a watch could be potentially dangerous and result in a loss of your phone. I also like TomG«÷s point, that I did not consider, I could see value in this device if used for medical and sports applications that monitor other functions pertaining to your health.
A student sitting next to me in class just got a smart watch, I do not recall the manufacturer, but it essentially was a watch that sent notifications to him about texts, comments, and updates for his social site. For this purpose I do not see a huge market, based upon the size of the watch. It is one thing to read messages, and emails on a small screen I t quite another to try and do word editing on the same screen. Great article, and some great points made as well. I guess we all all see the measured success of the watch when it is released.
