Why people will buy iwatch
Ardent Apple fans may find it tough to avoid this new release from this innovative company. Most importantly, the feature that allows you to control your phone, ipad, ipod without taking it out from your pocket may be the number one reason to drive Apple fans to buy this product. Anyone who carries gadgets knows it is sometimes very difficult to take out your phone for every little thing. Moreover, with smart phone thefts on the rise, this may just be the answer. The style and simplicity has always been selling points of all Apple products and it should be so for iwatch too.
Possible challenges and competitionHowever, it may not be so easy for Apple to garner the market share of smart watches. There are many challenges before Apple. First and the biggest challenge is making a design that is suitable for both men and women. Moreover, different people like to wear different watches for different occasions. Secondly, the durability of the screen that always has been a problem for Apple in iphones and ipads can be a big problem here. The iwatch is more prone to break than the other gadgets like phones and tabs. Another challenge for Apple is going to be able to appeal to people who have no product from Apple yet and iwatch is the first possible product in their Apple kitty. Lastly, scratch on the screen may be a big issue too. If it uses sapphire crystal to make the screen scratch free like iphone5 then the price may go up further.
In spite of all these challenges, it will be interesting to see what iwatch can do to the already existing market of smart watches. Moreover, the impact of Google glass and iwatch on each other may be another interesting factor to watch out for in the near future.
