The news feeds are letting everyone know an “iWatch” from Apple is coming. Apple’s history of under delivering their first generation product and through the years the 3rd or 4th version of the product becomes a must have item, we believe the iWatch can be a huge disappointment or mega hit. Everyone wants the Dick Tracy watch. I totally would love that!
Bluetooth & E-ink technology is what makes the Pebble Watch a success and might have given Apple the extra push to create an iWatch. For Apple to do this right, it needs to have the watch sync and interact with all their Bluetooth products, function as a standalone phone (no iPhone or Bluetooth necessary), and its gotta be stylish/functional.
Apple might already have the foundation ready with the iPod Nano. That MP3 player is tiny, lightweight, multi-functional, touch screen and already converts into a watch by 3rd party support. It would be so easy to push a iPod Nano Watch…. so easy. I on the other would like to challenge Apple on creating something unique.
The Apple iWatch doesn’t need to do everything. Just start with the Dick Tracy watch and move on from there. If there is one thing that Apple does well, its simplicity.
