“Listen to me, your body is not a temple. Temples can be destroyed and desecrated. Your body is a forest — thick canopies of maple trees and sweet scented wildflowers sprouting in the underwood. You will grow back, over and over, no matter how badly you are devastated.”—Beau Taplin || T e m p l e s (via swetshopboy)
(Background: I’m a huge fan of 3 things from my childhood. Dick Tracy, Knight Rider, and Inspector Gadget. I’m super excited to see my adulthood match what I loved as a child.)
I’ve been a watch wearer since childhood. Gone from digital, to analog, to even both at times. I own a Nike+ Watch (with GPS), a strap to fit my iPod Nano 6th Gen in, and a LG G Watch. While I’m not an expert, here are some thoughts on the Apple Watch today.
This totally legitimized both the wearable category (sorry, Tory Burch+Fitbit) and NFC in wearable devices (which is genius, btw)
It is the first device that is gender agnostic enough (and two sizes help) to really make a dent in the female wearable market
That makes me wonder why they are giving up on Android users with a complete lock-in to the Apple ecosystem. The first company to accept cross platform users will make a killing (just look at Google Glass and Apple users.
The price point is right in line with what Apple would charge. It will sell like hotcakes
The amount of SKUs shows me that Apple understands the fashion/”me” factor of the device. The difference in price will be the X factor there.
Battery life and connectivity need to be addressed publicly. Even if it’s an estimate, people want a general idea. Right now, its looking like a day, 2 tops. (which isn’t great)
I don’t see death with other fitness wearables. It looks too nice to take to the gym- and if I can’t do music+BT headphones, what is the point?
Along those lines, seems water resistant?
Can’t wait to see the interface in person. Looks kludgy to me so far.
