This article discusses the new Apple watch and all of the benefits that this watch brings. Though there are a few drawbacks to the watch, Patrick Mahony argues that is overall a very impressive new product.
The Apple watch is here and it is nothing short of incredible says Patrick Mahony. Apple’s slogan for this product states, ‘to wear it is to love it,‘ and its owners would agree. While there is admittedly a steep learning curve, users of the watch come to realize that they simply cannot live without it and that the watch almost becomes an extension of their body, tracking their fitness and answering their calls.
So what exactly does the Apple watch do? The more relevant question should be: what does the Apple watch don’t do? The watch can send notifications to users instantaneously. You want to know the score of your favorite sports game as soon as it happens and without even searching for it? The watch does that. You want to summon Siri from your wrist? Check to make sure your flight is on time without fumbling through your bag for your phone? Track your fitness goals? Receive calls and texts? Use Apple Pay to make your purchases? Sync your contacts and music? The Apple watch does all these things seamlessly. Its owners report that its convenience is irreplaceable; you’ll never miss an important phone call again or spend valuable time rushing to your gate while you fumble through your bag to check your phone for your flight information. Just one glance at your wrist instantly does all of these things and more.
The downsides to the Apple watch? It is very expensive. The current models range anywhere from $350 to an astounding $17,000 for the most advanced models. Ouch. Another drawback is that not all apps are available on the watch yet (like the GPS), though Patrick Mahony assumes that they will be readily available soon enough. Regardless, the Apple watch is remarkable in today’s technological society and will probably be seen on countless wrists soon.
