re: Apple iWatch Vs. Smartwatches Past And Present
Another colleague brought up the "would women ever wear this" question. I don't see it as a Mars/Venus issue -- at one time, some women wore BlackBerries on their belts, too -- but more as a functionality issue. If I have an iPhone and an iPad mini already, Apple will need to convince me I need a smartwatch on more than an aesthetic level. That goes for men and women.
On the other hand, the iPad became an executive status symbol of sorts rather quickly; CEOs did not want to be seen without it. I am not sure if a smartwatch would play out similarly.
What do you all think? Would your CIO wear one? Would your CEO?
