Apple’s much awaited ‘Spring Forward’ event saw the announcement of some new gadgets but highlight of the event was the Apple Watch. This announcement of Apple Watch marks Apple’s foray into wearable technology. Let’s have a deeper look at the Apple Watch and why it could be an exciting gadget to own.
What is it about the Apple Watch that is universally appealing? We believe that the way Apple have integrated features into the device it lets people connect in innovative ways. This will prove to be a major selling point of the device. As Tim Cook put it, people will have a blast using the device to send quickly drawn images, their own heartbeat, and taptic signals to other Watch users.
The Apple Watch has been a hotly anticipated device because most other major manufacturers had already launched their wearable devices and everyone wanted to see what Apple would do with it. Though most of them were disappointed that the Cupertino based company did not go for a round dial like Motorola and Huawei so elegantly did, some did find the device beautiful in its rectangular form. Built using glass, stainless steel, anodized aluminum and gold based on the edition, the watch looks premium and elegant.
Apple has announced three versions of the Apple Watch; the Apple Watch Sport, the Apple Watch Regular and the Apple Watch Edition. The Sport version is made of anodized aluminum and costs the least of the lot, with a starting price of USD 349. The Apple Watch Regular is made of stainless steel and will be available with a variety of different bands with a starting price of USD 549. The most expensive of the lot is the 18 karat Gold Apple Watch Edition which costs upwards of USD 10,000. The device is a strong opponent to the likes of the Moto 360 and Samsung Gear series and we’re sure loyal Apple users will definitely line up to get their hands on Apple’s new innovation.
