The newly-released Apple Watch is suffering from a kind of identity crisis. No one debates that the watch isn’t an apt wearable extension of Apple’s already-popular mobile technology line, but no one can seem to figure out exactly who the Apple Watch’s target market is and who really needs one.
If you’re an early adopter who needs to experience every new gadget that hits the market, then the Apple Watch might just be your fantasy. It’s something not everyone will be able to afford or need immediately, so you’ll be in an exclusive club for at least a few months.
If you have a job where you can’t be checking your phone all the time, but need to remain connected, the Apple Watch might be a perfect solution. It gives notifications right on your wrist and offers basic connectivity that eliminates the need for a lot of phone checking. This might even apply to parents who are on the go and need a simple way to check texts and emails without screen time.
If you have trouble staying organized, having all your reminders and appointments visible right on your wrist might be an excellent solution to your scheduling woes. Being able to set reminders for simple tasks and have them appear where you can’t miss them could be a godsend for those needing to follow up on projects and customers at set intervals.
If you’re a bit of a phone addict, the Apple Watch might just help you break some unhealthy habits. It’s a great way to eliminate the anxiety that comes with being separated from your phone while maintaining connectivity and eliminating screen time.
So tell us – is the Apple Watch for you? If you have one, what do you think so far?
